TELLY favourite Noel Edmonds has astonishingly called for a total BAN on immigrants coming to Britain.

In a controversial interview which will spark a fierce nationwide debate, he said: “I’m very straightforward on immigration. The bus is full.”

The star gave his hard-hitting views to the News of the World on the eve of his new political telly programme, Noel’s HQ, which tries to find solutions for what’s wrong with Britain.

TV Noel, 59—famous for Noel's House Party, which featured Mr Blobby, and Deal Or No Deal—went on: “Why should we have no more people in?

“We haven’t got enough energy, we haven’t got enough electricity, we haven’t got enough of a health service.

Toxic

“We can all go down the pub and go, ‘Oh it’s terrible, all these immigrants.’ But what are we going to do in Britain to change this toxic culture if we don’t say, ‘Enough is enough.’

“If I was Prime Minister for a day the first thing I would do would be to close the border.

“Then we could work out how many people we’ve got here.

“Then you get people out who have committed crimes and you look at others who shouldn’t be here. Nobody knows how many people we’ve got here.”

Last year 600,000 came to the UK legally. Around 50,000 illegal immigrants are caught each year but nobody knows how many go undetected. The UK population is expected to rise from nearly 61million now to 77million within 50 years. Noel’s views are in line with a YouGov poll that shows 81 per cent of Labour and 89 per cent of Conservative voters want a substantial reduction in immigration.

I'm sure the majority of Americans are feeling this guy. I sure am.

Wonder how long before he is called a racist or mean or a hater? I hope he stands firm, and I hope that the UK can control their immigration.

Currently, 87.7% of Brits agree with Mr. Edmonds....

I was there this summer and I was blown away by the number of mosques and Muslims in the country, noticably more than when I was there in 2005. They ARE being taken over.

And the Brits are allowing themselves to be taken over............

Let the Islamists* scream Jihad if they get put back in their place--------no Muslim civilization since the Renaissance has been able to fight its way out of a paper bag.

*with all due respect to the secular/moderate followers of Islam who perceive Osama bin Laden etc. as apostates.
