I think a lot of people stood up and took notice when things got so bad that the BNP started getting enough support to get 2 MEPs.
I don't hear anything substantial that makes me feel that anyone has taken any notice of the rise in BNP support. It's just rhetoric.
They've tinkered a bit with non-EU immigration, but nothing as far as I can tell has changed about immigration within the EU.
Hopefully, that is the wakeup call that mainstream parties need to tighten up border controls and immigration policy. Still - it's too late really.
Too little too late, but I don't see this tightening up that you mention.
It's quite conceiveable that in my lifetime the UK will become an Islamic state - simply by reproduction.
I don't see that myself. I agree that Muslims seem to reproduce like rabbits (which seems a trait popular with many immigrants) so they may just about be the majority of the population in a few northern sh!t holes, but they're a long way off from outnumbering the British in general.
For Poles, the British Isles are the only English-speaking countries which welcome them with open arms.
No Green Card lotteries (assuming Poles are eligible this year), no immigration points system, no threat of deportation or detention centres, no demeaning questions at the airport.
That's unique, therefore special.
The Polish might find it "unique and special", but many British people do not see it that way.
