This, apparently, is what Mr Sarrazin, who works for the Bundesbank and was Germany's finance minister, said when referring to some German immigrant populations."I don't have to accept someone who lives off a state they reject, ..."
He also said the influx of immigrants is making Germany 'dumber', because
andimmigrants from 'Turkey, the Middle East and Africa' were less educated.
Because immigrants tend to have more children than Germans - who have the lowest birth rate in Europe - this caused 'a different propagation of population groups with different intelligence

Mrs Rigby is delighted to acknowledge that this response as a wonderful example of the freedom of speech we enjoy in the Western world. So let's look again at what Mr Serrazin saidA spokesman for a Muslim group in Berlin said: 'He is a tired old white Christian male full of prejudice and few ideas.'
That, is for Mrs R, the bottom line - and she turns it into a question.'I don't have to accept someone who lives off a state they reject'
Is it not reasonable to ensure that those who live off the state accept, acknowledge and abide by, the rules of that state?
