Alternative Perspectives Chancellor George Osborne’s Office for Budget Responsibility watchdog has advised that spending cuts to public services and a fall in economic growth would result if immigration were cut to the levels the Conservatives plan by 2015.

This is partly because of the ageing UK population; most immigrants are of working age. An ICAR study from 2003 found that ‘asylum seekers were more likely to encounter hostility linked to negative reporting if they lived in poor areas where locals believed they may be competing for decent housing’ (Casciani, 2004). According to the Chartered Institute of Housing, asylum seekers’ use of social housing is statistically ‘very limited’ (2008: 2), and Robinson argues that the claims of an unfair advantage in obtaining social housing in the United Kingdom are a ‘moral panic’ (2009).

On this basis, we are able to give an account of the exact language used to develop specific themes and the manner in which the dominance of some is established.
