Do you think had the EU a more restrictive immigration policy that incidents of this kind would be less or more frequent?
Well my opinion is that people like this will always nurse grievances and personal failures that they will seek to blame on others.
Even if you go way back in the UK alone, to a time well before mass immigration - the forbears of the type of people who burned the effigy, the type who think to treat the event as a "joke", or as a legitimate expression of an alleged grievance, etc, well you always see these type are always easily aroused by a certain type of rhetoric. Just one example - Evil May Day - Wikipedia
I have little doubt myself that the problem is based in ignorant, poorly educated, racist, malcontents, and it has little to do with the question of whether it is correct or desirable to alter current immigration policy. - The online racist right under which these racist savages were obviously under the influence of (the same as most as on this forum are) is little different in essence to odious hateful print based propaganda that has gone before, for example, I cited Der Sturmer as a prototype. (I took a quick look on the meme thread on here, and I would say it is certainly little different to what was in that erstwhile publication etc.).
