There is no doubt in my mind that Britain is in a lot of trouble. We are becoming a ‘Multicultural’ society, which in a way is good. But in many others is destroying the British culture and society of today! Many splits have emerged in British culture and are causing a lot of problems. Many people that migrate to this country are causing a lot of problems for the government and mostly of all the NHS and Benefit services that we provide to these people. The Law in Britain allows every person FREE treatment in the NHS, People from poorer countries exploit this law to their potential. They do not have to pay for the NHS. My father and everyone else in my family is a British hard working middle class family that pays for these people exploiting our National Heath Services! I could not believe it when I saw something on the news about a foreigner accusing a Doctor of being racist just because this Doctor asked the foreigner where about in the world he was from! These ridiculous laws must be stopped! Also say if a British citizen is waiting for treatment and has been on the waiting list for some time and a foreigner is in the same situation, the foreigner will get treatment before the British citizen does. This is because if any British citizen comes before the foreigner this is an act of racism? I think this proves my point that we are now living in a society so obsessed with political correctness. If our Doctors don’t even know the country location of where these people live it’s impossible to trace them and get a little money out of them. The NHS is losing billions of pounds per year due to these people and frauds and scams they set up to exploit our NHS. Another fact that is we are becoming over populated in this country. All of this shite about the ‘open borders policy’ is to me a load of bull! Can’t the government see this? If we allow this to happen I guarantee you that every village in Britain will turn into another town or city by the year 2050. Hence causing more pollution and racial hatred among us. Also with this policy we are more venerable to a terrorist attack from someone. We need to be stricter on these policies for the protection of the British public community. A lot of these illegal immigrants demand jobs, benefits and housing not to mention the free NHS and many other services we provide. It horrifies me when they barge in with all guns ablaze demanding all sorts of rights and then abusing them to their gain. They are sucking up all of the available job spaces we provide. Some of these foreign people demand jobs but yet know no or little English and then say that they don’t want to speak English. If they wish to come to our country and help build a better Britain, by all means they can do so but they have to adjust to our culture and if they spoke English wouldn’t they improve their job potential? Also I am sick of these fascists demanding that they can wear their turbans and dress in schools, just because of their religion. I don’t think that we should bend the rules fore them! Maybe some adjustments can be made but if most of the Muslims agree with the school uniform in Britain, why should some extremists should exploit that and sue schools? Yes I know it’s ridiculous but that’s British society of today! The war on Iraq was a pointless affair also. We lost valuable soldiers for what? 1 year on and Britain has spent £100’s of billions on the war. The public was lied to by the lefty labour Party and our troops are still in Iraq fighting the uprising and corruption. We could have spent all of that money on schools, public transport, roads, police services and yes the NHS. But no, we suck up to the super power of the ‘great’ USA! Did they help us in the Falklands war? They only helped us in the two world wars only because they were attacked themselves. Did you know that if we left the European Union we would save over 14p on income tax and £100’s of billions of pounds? We would also get our fishing grounds back and of course would not be obliged to join the Euro. The pound is respectable and is the centre of our National identity. If we lost that we then would lose another valuable asset of our British society. These issues are the main problems that we face today and there are many more! If I said all these things in public I would be accused of a racist. But In fact I am not. I am trying to get an important message through the British public that this country is in deep trouble and the government needs to wake up on these issues. Remember this and only this: IT’S NOT THE FORIGNERS YOU SHOULD HATE OR BE CONCENERED ABOUT, IT’S THE POLITICIANS YOU SHOULD HATE AND BE CONCENERED ABOUT :D share with me your views… got this ina email from a freind.
How can these ethnic minority groups be a minority if there are so many of them?
Alot of the causes of racism are the people who are apparently abused by the white man. They have an advantage over Brits in every way.
We are trying to buy a house, but have been told that if we bid the same as one of the Indian families also trying to buy it, then we will lose out as the estate agents cannot appear to be racist. Where is the justice in that.
Over the past ten years, the % of minority groups populating my town has gone from 5% to 45%. They are abusing our system and on top of things, they incite riots, which the local folks get the fall out of, and are hence racist because we defend ourselves.
People enter our country and apply for jobs and get them because the companys cannot appear racist.
Things are getting out of hand. I say no more immigrants, and rigourous checking. They can only come if there is no-where else to go, and that aint gonna happen because Europe has plenty of space.

We have the same problem in the U.S., well at least in the midwest. I hate to be racist, but the United States is being taken over by mexicans. Right now, over half of my school, and city, is populated by them. What makes matters worse is they don't try hard in school and get into mucho fights. That takes away good reputation for my school.
Yeah, I get sick of people using the fact that they were once a minority to their advantage.
I agree with the original poster. Something has to be done about immigration because it's taking the piss out of the working man. The first thing to do is get rid of Blair. Why, oh why anyone would vote for that idiot is beyond me. He spends far to much time kissing arse across the Atlantic, whilst at home the people he represents are getting shafted. Fuck this "bridge" between the US and Europe stuff, we've got more important concerns at home.
I would like the next PM to impliment these policies:
Get the British Army out of Iraq ASAP. No more militaristic ventures with Bush.
Spend the money saved arse licking to buy back the railways and fix the NHS.
Close the borders to immigrants. Anyone not holding a British passport would be deported back to their country of origin, unless they serve a useful purpose.
Either leave the EU, or make our presence felt. British waters are for British fishermen. Gibraltar wants to be a protectorate, and shall stay that way, etc.
IMO Tony Blair should resign, he has made a complete mockery of his people.
Yep Blair should go. HOWEVER. I do not agree with some of these views. I believe that immigration could be one of the best things for this country, the government has to deal with it right. Immigrants can contribute to the economy and help British society. In my opinion all illegal immigrants should be deported, and told that they may come in if done legally. All legal immigrants/asylum seekers, would be given a work permit upon entry to the country, and given 6 months to find a job (on no benefit). If they find a job (even if it's flipping burgers/cleaning toilets), they may stay, and if they stay in paid work for over a year, and lose their job they have 6 months on benefit to find a new one. If they want a house they should take out a mortgage like anyone else. It's certainly a difficult situation, but they are people just like us and we have to be accepting to a degree. Ideas are probably too idealistic to function but hey I'm 16, I'm SUPPOSED to be idealistic.
If we don't have a workforce skilled in a certain trade locally, then by all means invite the services of foreigners. I'm not sure we should be encouraging immigrants to come and flip burgers however.
Everyone has to start somewhere on the employment ladder. For many Britons this means unskilled labour. These types of jobs are equally as important as the skilled professions - They are proving grounds for better employment. They also provide an income to people who might otherwise be relying on social security benefits.
I'm not suggesting that the dole is only for the unskilled - it's for everyone in need. However I believe it should only act as a temporary safety net. It's a fact of life that many immigrants will only be able to get unskilled work. For this reason (imo) it's not in Britain's best interests to fill the lower rung of employment this way.
In summery: Legal immigrants should be granted citizenship and treated like any other citizen, only if they fill a gap in the requirements of industry.
Regarding asylum seekers; they are supposed to settle in the first safe haven. Technically only the following qualify for asylum in Britain... Eire, Scandanavia, Northern Europe and possibly Iceland.
I know that but let's face it they are not going to are they? I mean Britiain is much more welcoming. Benefit, get a house etc.
the dutch culture got raped ( hard ) because we would let any so called fugitive in our country and giving them money lots of money wich was gained by the high taxes. ( dont see it as racism its just my opion )
Big Daddy, your country will need immigrants, because your native population is growing older and doesn't produce enough children.
What would England be without immigrants? Gauls, Romans, Saxons, Danes, Frenchies,... They all helped to shape your country and culture. No civilization in the world has developed its country without influence from others, maybe excluding China.
