The world's 5th richest nation on the planet should deliberately turn their backs on the worlds most needy and desperate?
Nice idea from nice people.
6.6 million conflict-generated internally displaced people in 16 countries as being "of concern,"
The report said 2005 was the fifth straight year in which the global population of refugees declined. The largest drops (19 percent) were recorded in West Africa and in the so-called CASWANAME region (Central Asia, South-West Asia, North Africa, Middle East). But the two regions still host about two-thirds of the world's refugees. The number of refugees fell by 15 percent last year in Europe, which hosted about a quarter of all refugees. Asia and the Pacific hosted 10 percent of the world's refugees, and the Americas seven percent.

So Europe, as in the whole of Europe has roughly 25% of the refugees in the World and it went down 15% last yaer. They're coming over in leaps and bounds. In fact, clearly they're all coming over to the U.K. it's just every piece of research conducted by worthwhile people states otherwise. It's groups like the BNP which create a problem, a problem that doesn't exist.
A good source can be found there. In fact, Iraq has the fourth largest number of IDP. Afghanistan is in the top 10 as well...so let's think about this for a moment? Oh yes...we caused those people to seek refugee status.
UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Some 191 million people now live outside their country of birth and migration is a major feature of international life, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan reported on Tuesday.
Europe hosted 34 percent of all migrants in 2005, North America 23 percent and Asia 28 percent. Only 9 percent were living in Africa, 3 percent in Latin America and the Caribbean, and another 3 percent in Oceania.
75 million people have moved between developing countries

this too confirms a similar phenomenon in the UK, where circumstances are ripe for a mass turn to fascism unless the present government does something to turn the tide and stop the indigenous population feeling like outcasts in their own back yard.
Quite clearly the masses in Britain have had enough of being told that only politically correct behaviour is now acceptable.
I am expressing no political opinion either way. It is interesting now as an outsider to the country of my birth to watch events.

Because the main stream parties either do not want to or do not care about listening to what the British people want.
The BNP is clearly listerning to what some sections of the British people want to say and are postioning them selves as having listened.
And is the BNP is getting votes at a local level, this means that people have decided to exercise their electral rights.
I am sick to death of people saying this is wrong and we should ban the far right parties in this country.
If people want to vote for the BNP, it is for a reason. One else is listening.
