This pretty much hits the nail on the head. Yesterday I saw images of police in London kneeling in front of an angry crowd of third-world people. They can arrest people for sitting in parks but an angry mob gets a pass because "racism" ? 

It could be slightly (but not much) worse though, the UK could be Sweden.

Wonder why UK universities and public schools are so highly regarded?

Simple! Income tax.

The UK government is nothing more than an anti-europe pressure group.

 

They were/are good for nothing else but anachronistic, outdated, rhetoric.

 

Voted into power on a wave of xenophobic ignorance, gullibility and stupidity.

 

The nascent "Independent" UK totally outperformed by Germany in the COVID crisis.

 

A taste of things to come.

 

 

And that is why Thousands of Brits applied already for a German passport??? 😊

They could easily control illegal immigration, they don't want to, and like all political parties in UK they don't care how indigenous people feel about it ......

 

Stephen Kinnock, Labour shadow minister, said, after the election disaster suffered by Labour, that the reason wasn't Brexit. It was because Labour had become so focused on "diversity", promising this that and the other to minority groups, focusing totally on those groups, that the'd lost contact with the vast white working class, whose votes they relied on. They took those votes for granted. 

 

His views weren't well received by the Corbyn and Corbynistas. 

 

Part of that is immigration, and especially illegal immigration. Conservatives ain't doing much better now either.

What is utterly incredible is that 51% DO still trust the UK government. 

 

Its response to the crisis has been a total and utter shambles. At every turn an effort has been made to mislead the public. All the while they hide behind the 'heroes on the front line of OUR NHS" and people like Sir Major Tom. The health services - for all the good people working in them - are woefully underfunded and have repeatedly been let down by the politicians. 

 

Rabid right wingers - many of whom are in that deluded 51% - continue to play their part in bashing the so called loony left, condemning legitimate news agencies who are asking the difficult questions in an attempt to bring the government to account. 

 

Boris Johnson, leads the way and reminds me of a cake - the Eton Mess.

 

Rooster

 

What surprises me is that anyone trusts any politician, or political party.

A deceptional inference ?  Membership of the EU does  not  bar , eliminate , prohibit  independent  measures of  national function.

Has the UK finalized it's divorce  from the EU ?

 

So if we were  not  leaving the Eu it  would  have been better??

This post is not really about immigration, but I hope I may be permitted to reply directly to one contention you made, which was quoted again.

'They don't care how indigenous people feel about it".

Well I assume you see yourself as one of the so called "Indigenous people". Who are they?

After the megalith builders (Stonehenge etc) largely died out (Climate, disease etc) came the Celts, so are the Scots Irish Welsh and Cornish the indigenous people? Then the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes: the Vikings, the Normans, the Danes, the Flemish - no need to say more. 

 

Is the word Indigenous just being used as a pompous self aggrandising description for "Me and my mates and excluding any of those dark skinned fellows". 

 

Everyone in the UK is an immigrant, or descended from one, where do you draw the line and suddenly become "Indigenous". 

 

I regard indigenous as tracing back 3 generations. You sound like a pompous self righteous politically correct pseudo intellectual, whose "mates" are probably illegal immigrants
