Recent immigration has been "..the largest single wave of in-migration that the British Isles have ever experienced":

I laughed when they suggested water shortages in the South East where down to 'lack of rain'.

Why not? You usually get a sticker to plaster on them if you want to send them back...

So mass Immigration & our prisons full to capacity. I wonder if the two items are related?

Ha! Just read the BBC's Have your say (http://newsforums.bbc.co.uk/nol/thread.jspa?threadID=3341&&edition=1&ttl=20061006184032)! Biased or what!

And they've closed it.

"One in nineteen workers is a foreign national." :eek:

Come to think of it, two of the 15 or so I work with every day are. :rolleyes:

A quick tip.. whenever you see a topic on 'Have your say' on the BBC that is even vaguely capable of a 'non-pc' comment, select the 'readers recommended' option.. EVERY time there is the opportunity for people to actually 'vote' as such, they indicate they are:

Against any more immigration

Against more stealth taxes - and gordon brown.

Distrust of muslims.

nu labour on virtually every policy.


In terms of the current thread's topic....

http://newsforums.bbc.co.uk/nol/thread.jspa?sortBy=2&threadID=3341&start=0&tstart=0&edition=1&ttl=20061006230821&#paginator

..is a good example.


Yet, the BBC shuts down these topics and posts more 'happy clappy ethnic eutopia stories' on the front page.


Peter Hitchins (as he is wont) was very disparaging of the 'new tories', just as he was of 'new labour' on the Politics Show last night, and with good reason.

With the mainstream parties not listening, people will turn to extreme parties - either of the right, or the left.

The beeb have to shut them down. As a public institution if they offend anyone they know they complains can go to all the government quangos who slap them on the wrist. I mean how many times do their "investigative" journalism programs have to apologise to crooks?

you have to be more specific - 'british' crooks, or 'british ethnic minority crooks'. Or 'ethnic minority crooks given temporary leave to remain'. Or 'ethnic minority crooks on a day trip that turned into 10 years and 25 kids'.

There is a major difference you know.

All sorts of crooks.

Mostly the British Crooks who con the Great British Public with schemes that make me laugh cos they are so unbelievable i.e. diet pills, selling bits of fields for property development, or are clever enough to find a loophole in the law and then run off abroad.
