Recommendation 1 from ‘The Guardian’

Article Name:‘Immigrants don’t come here for the weather – they want to work’

By: ‘Shazia Mirza’

The article states that immigrants come to England to work and not to sit around. However, according to Theresa May’s new rules immigrants will have to earn £18,600 or more to bring in a non-EU spouse, rising to £27,200 for three children. Writer states that this ruling suggests that it seems this means that poor people can no longer make a contribution to the society. Whereas on the other hand writer states that when her parents had come to Britain they had nothing in hand and with their hard work they have contributed to the economy of the country.

Summary:

Well, it is a fact that the workers contribute to the economy of a country. And when it comes to the immigrants, Britain should refrain from such stringent laws, as it is mostly this immigrant population that works and keep the economy ticking. Plus, it doesn’t make sense.

Recommendation 3 from ‘BBC’

Article Name:‘Viewpoint: Taxi sharing in Iran’s ‘sexual revolution’’

By: ‘Kamin Mohammadi’

AThe article states that young Iranians have started employing creative behaviour to navigate their ways around in the restrictions and it is amounting to no less than sexual revolution of some sorts. Writer states that to share the same space, men and women share taxis and also with the help of mobile phones the interactions have become easier. And then there are cyber chat rooms where people even fix some secret dates for themselves. Writer states that for the fist time people in Iran are finding space for themselves even if it is in the cyber space or taxis.

Summary:

Such things happen in our culture everyday and we don’t call it a revolution of any sort, but in that culture, it perhaps means a huge shift in the thinking of people. People are trying to find a place for themselves amidst the restriction’s chaos. This is a huge thing and moreover, little-little shifts late lead to cultural revolutions on larger scales.
