Is the UK the only Anglo country to never have an Asian exclusion Act?

We all know about Oz's white Australia policies and people give them grief for it but they are certainly not the only ones to restrict Asian immigration. The USA had the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and then banned all Asians in the Immigration Act of 1924. In 1923 Canada implemented the Chinese Immigration Act which banned them. In South Africa the Chinese Exclusion Act was passed in 1904 and things got a lot worse from there. Between 1881 through to the 1930s even New Zealand excluded almost all Asians and placed enormous taxes on the Chinese.

The only Anglo country to not exclude Asians is the mother country, UK. Doesn't that seem a bit odd?

    Australia doesn’t mind Asians. We have heaps. That was ages ago to have a restriction.

    Erm... you realise it makes perfect sense don’t you?

    Cause vs Effect.

    The UK is Anglo natively so did not need restrictions to Make it Anglo 

    Put it this way. There are two ways for a country to become Anglo

    1. By nativity eg UK

    2. By immigration restrictions eg AUS, USA

    So all Anglo countries that are not natively Anglo must have had immigration restrictions once to make them Anglo 

    Yes UK could introduce restrictions too... and probably it is gradually

    That's true.

    But UK had only around 50000 British Asians in 1950.

    Today, the asian population in UK is around 3-4 million.

    They are called East Asians or Oriental over there since Asia can can include Arabia, India etc. Maybe it is because they like their Chinese Takeaway.
