This is what the members choose to comment on, unless the Mods think otherwise?

the usa has problems now, with nazi brigades etc, had major problems not too far back with the Klan,but all that is irrelevant, to whats going on in this country at the moment, problems or not, the yanks have never treated these people like "Noddy In Toyland" they tend not to tolerate like the lemons here.

Re: Multiculteral Britain - A No,No?

When saying "these people" Cashy I assume you mean the protesters at Luton? but that incident by a very few does not go to say we should start biulding barracades ...there has to be a line drawn when a foreign culture attempts to manipulate custome and laws to force their own standards on us agreed..\i reckon the Klan in America is more of a racial problem than cultural and that maybe something we sometimes get mixed up.. culture not race..apart from that I can't see any alternative other than accept a multicultural society...we already have one!

Re: Multiculteral Britain - A No,No?

I have tonight watched a video clip of Afghan Nationals in Calais trying by whatever means to get into the UK to claim political asylum and reside in a safe haven.
France are in the EEU but they are considering setting up transit camps for these people who I feel sure the UK does not want....why do France not deport them or allow asylum.
Are we a soft touch? It would be rather interesting to hear from elected councillors and political gurus on this subject?

Watching that clip I get the impression that the French have a bigger problem than here.

I think those colonial ideas died out when the sun set on the British Empire.

Apart from a few places in Spain, which have enclaves of immigrants from quite a few northern European countries, and therefore stick in their own communities, most Brits who emigrate now have to assimilate in whichever country they've decided to move to. Be it Australia, Canada or Dubai. They adapt to the cultural idenity of their host country, but are still proud of their British roots.

Re: Multiculteral Britain - A No,No?

theres a world of difference between keeping yer own culture n trying to IMPOSE it on the nationals, this minority cos thats what they are, are doing no good what so ever fer the ordinary moslems that just wanna get on wi life.

That's very true. Most of the Muslims I know are content living in the community.

Happily it's only a minority, much like other religious minorities, who likewise try to force their beliefs on you, that are trying to attack and change the democrcy we enjoy in Britain.

I'll fight that small minority until I breathe my last breath.

I'd rather die doing that than for them to win, and for me to be strung up in some football stadium.
