The other side of it. When I was new in London, seeking digs, I found a likely place, but the sign in the tobacconist's window clearly stated "Only Europeans Need Apply". I was - still am - an American, but I was desperate. I called the number, "I'm not a European, I'm an American," I told the woman. "Is that okay?" She told me yes.

I lived there two years; after a bit I understood. I have always wished I could have seen her face if, after she told the American to come, he turned out to be a New Orleans black or a Californian named Wong.

We have discrimination laws. If that was after 1968 it was illegal.

It was in point of fact 1965.

If the United Kingdom chose to admit millions of foreigners to permanent residence, it is fool-hardy to then tell these newcomers that they can live here, but not there, shop here, but not there, work here, but not there. "There" might as well be nowhere and you create an impoverished criminal element with no sense of being British. Not good!
Should the UK have allowed so many foreigners to move their already crowded island?
Maybe not, but what's done is done. Time to assimilate or risk civil war.

The UK has had these laws making discrimination on race, sex or religion starting in 1968. And we are getting better tr enforcing those laws.

As far as being overcrowded, whenever I fly in or out of the UK most of the flight is over green fields. A greater area of the UK is covered by incoming tides than is built on. We are far from overcrowded except in the minds of a few far right racist politicians.

Great Britain cannot feed itself, it must import food from abroad. And precious little of the country is left in wilderness.
London is huge compared to when my family left.
I believe that when calculating space, more room for trees and wild animals should be part of the equation.
And no, sheep are not a wild animal!
