The less the divide, the less British the UK becomes.
Who really wants that?
What do you mean? I don't understand
So your saying that we don't want a mix society in the UK
Well, I'm an American, so I can't tell you what you want. America is about as multicultural,multiethnic, and multiracial as it gets. For most of our
immigrants were able to adapt to a culture that was based primarily on Western
civilization. Now, with the advent of an official policy of multiculturalism, Western culture
is represented as the descendant of a repressive, racist, and brutal colonialist culture
that has no respect for other "equally valid" cultures. That, coupled with rampant
illegal immigration by people who, with the blessing of those in power who espouse
multiculturalism, is producing a society that is becoming ever more divided along class, race, and ethnic lines, which is resulting in a country which
seems to become more like the third world every day, with the new arrivals bringing their problems with them,
while many have, at the same time, a contempt for the culture that made the U.S. a
(once) great nation. I have observed a similar situation in Europe (including the UK)That
said, I believe that immigrants ought to be able to come to the U.S. as long as they are
able to demonstrate useful skills and a desire to become productive citizens who intend
to assimliate into American society, rather than use the U.S. as a place to earn money
that is sent back to their homelands and hold the native (White) populace in contempt.
For my part, I would rather see Western (i.e. White European) culture and civilization
preserved as a distinct entity. If people in other places have the right to be themselves, why shouldn't Europeans? It seems to me that it's a
matter of numbers, (given that
Whites make up only about ten percent of the world's population) that if things continue
as they are, then European civilization will cease to be. The divisiveness currently seen
in the U.S. is part of what is destroying our nation, while in the UK, divisiveness may be
what can preserve Britain as Britain, rather than allowing it to become another third world cesspool, as is happening in the U.S. (especially in major
As we are all going to die some day anyway, perhaps that may not matter, but if we
consider how we live in the meantime, then it may matter.
