Why immigration is good for the us
Lifestyle / Entertainment / Film by Press Association 14/06/2019, 11:39 pm Send us a story Sign up to our Daily newsletter Lena Headey said she is “good” following the end of Game Of Thrones. The British actress starred as scheming queen Cersei Lannister in HBO’s massively popular fantasy epic, which finished in May after eight seasons.

One of the spectres conjured up by Thierry Baudet in the last few weeks is that of ‘mass immigration’. It is a menace to the Netherlands and Europe, Baudet told voters but what the Forum voor Democratie leader meant exactly remained unclear.
