Well anyone would be daft to think its all hunky dory otherwise such threads, news etc wouldnt exist right?
It's not a matter of it being honky dory or daft, it is a matter of pros and cons, but England is so dependent on overseas workers that it would take more than the opinions of such threads or real problems to change it.
I have worked in several places in England, mainly in London, and there are problems including the national front or white wolves or whatever the xenophobes call themselves these days. It is unfortunate for the good, decent English people e.g. who don't even celebrate St. Steven's day, because the far right are usually sniffing around.
It was not long ago when the "no blacks no Irish no dogs" sign hung. And these thread implies more tactful notions of the same stance.
When people start segregation of "them" it always ends in catastrophe.
people jump and scream about if someone makes a well founded objection to immigration
What is the well founded objection to immigration on these threads?
I am new to all this, I don't mean to sound impolite, I am just aware that this is by no means new(s). ;) AvJoeUK
