Would the protection of `your` culture, involve the suppression of another's ?
Is culture not a dynamic / organic outgrowth ?
What if `they
` are also U.K citizens ?
IMHO, once somebody is a citizen they should be free to express themselves as they see fit , with observance of the law of the land, of course.
You can`t force fellow citizens to fall in line , but you do/should have control of immigration policy . (padlock in hand ..... horse galloping into
I don`t doubt for a minute that this really concerns many U.K citizens , but this is just the fruition of government policies of the past , one might
even say a remnant of "Empire" .
Population demographics , with declining birth rates in first world countries has lead policy makers to draw on the developing world to drive growth
With the economic down turn , this will inevitable cause friction .
These are the often unforeseen consequences ....... of chasing profit, both as individuals and as nations .
Is it what we need
or what we want
? A question we will all face eventually .
