Ideally, we should all get along just fine as humans whether someone who immigrates learns a local language well enough or not, 'assimilates' (as in making friends with locals) or not. Many people contribute greatly without doing either. But it is not an ideal world. India, has a history of accepting people, even conquerers and learning their languages and culture too. But it was ruined by some malcontents. One can clearly see the nationalistic and cultural aggressiveness in UK as stated by this official, even if he is of a different origin. It is clearly a double standard, since the British who lived or live in Pakistan, never followed the same principle. One can see how protective the British, the Europeans or USAnians are of their national identity, culture and want to impose it on any immigrant. If someone else does it, they scream "Nationalist". This is true nationalism and every country is entitled to it, to be fair. Of course, in a balanced world, immigrants could have a choice of finding their place to make a home. Being harsh and imposing one's language or culture will only turn away some really talented and THINKING people, who are not desperate to be accepted. They will find a more tolerant place and people.
So, until the world is fairer and a country is strong enough to enforce its laws properly, there should be a blanket policy like the one they want in UK. After a country has become strong and independent, one should have this policy with countries on a reciprocal basis - same policy of accepting immigrants from a country that it has towards your own!  That would combine the toughness of the west and tolerance of the East and be fair. That should be the way forward.

Well worded.....

'if I immigrate to the UK'

Sorry, not so well worded. No one can immigrate to the UK from another country. They would emigrate to the  UK.
