The native cockney culture in London has become completely and utterly destroyed and it brings a tear to my eye, I am not against all immigration it's just when the parent culture becomes marginalised and dissipates and people are branded racist for waving the St Georges cross people create foreign ghettos that are left to fester like in Tower Hamlets or Bradford.
