Emigration is completely out of control in this country, and I'm sick of it. I'm not staying quiet any more. You can't...

"Right now, there are new gifts on their way across Europe towards our country. New ideas, new talents, new viewpoints, new heroes for our children to emulate – and we need to grab as many of them as we can before the Germans do."
