Despite the media in the UK continuously reminding the British how much they "LOVE" multiculturalism almost with the belief if they say it enough it might become a reality the truth is that multiculturalism in the UK has totally failed. What do they say about rats abandoning sinking ships !

The Brits are leaving!






Seven million foreigners living in Britain as immigration rises by a fifth The number of foreigners living in Britain has passed seven million for the first time after net immigration rose by a fifth.

www.telegraph.co.uk...



30m Bulgarians and Romanians are set to gain unrestricted access to UK as EU regulations are lifted Experts warn of a 'significant spike' when limitations imposed by the EU are lifted at the end of next year Numbers expected to be higher than when restriction was lifted for Poland in 2004

Immigrant crime soars with foreign prisoners rising SHOCK new figures today reveal an increase of nearly 40 per cent in the number of Romanian criminals in Britain’s jails.

www.express.co.uk...




Crime on London's night buses has gone up by almost 50% in two years, BBC London can reveal. Transport for London figures show there were 3,817 robberies and thefts in 2011-12, up from 2,588 in 2009-10.

British whites' are the minority in London for the first time as census shows number of UK immigrants has jumped by 3million in 10 years Just 44.9% of Londoners are White British, according to census data

www.dailymail.co.uk...




The mixed-race population is up nearly 50% to almost a million for the first time – up from 672,000 in 2001 to 986,600 in 2009. A third are mixed African-Caribbean and white, followed by Asian/white. The ONS said this was not a result of increasing birthrates but because "the population is mixing up more".

www.guardian.co.uk...



More than 600,000 white British Londoners have left the capital in a decade. Census figures show that between 2001 and 2011 the level of ‘white flight’ reached 620,000. It is the equivalent of a city the size of Glasgow – made up entirely of white Britons – moving out of the capital.

www.dailymail.co.uk...



Britain is 'self-segregating' as white families flee urban areas for the countryside and outer suburbs. The trend is causing an 'ethnic cliff', in which the proportion of households from minority backgrounds is vastly different in areas just a few miles apart. Some outer London boroughs - including Enfield, Waltham Forest and Redbridge - have seen their white British population drop by as much as a quarter over the past decade.

www.dailymail.co.uk...




Britain is experiencing the greatest exodus of its own nationals in recent history while immigration is at unprecedented levels, new figures show. Last year, 207,000 British citizens - one every three minutes - left the country while 510,000 foreigners arrived to stay for a year or more.

www.telegraph.co.uk...




An increasing middle-class "brain drain" of British professionals moving abroad to live and work is raising concerns about future skills shortages in the UK, Home Office research has found. The study of emigration from Britain reveals that an estimated 4.7 million UK-born people now live abroad, with Australia consistently the most popular destination

Ask yourself the big "why". Immigrants have made civilized life impossible. When you have a group of people with different values overwhelming your home country what is left? Escape.

There is irony here. Reverse colonization. The Brits are reaping what they sowed.

I'm sorry to see such a wonderful country succumb to an alien population. I hope their heritage sites survive the onslaught.

We have always been multicultural...we have had foreign people come and live here for over two thousand years.
We are a mongrel nation and that is why we are GREAT.
I agree that people coming here should learn about the British way of life and try to mingle more but look back in history and you will find we have always allowed people from other cultures into our lovely great country.

Watch this.



Oh and Huzzar for Great Briton and all who come here.

Britain is formed by wave after wave of immigration. Which immigrants are you talking about. The Romans, The Anglo Saxons, The Irish. The Romanians. Without immigration please tell who would be in this country...?

30 million Bulgarians & Romanian's will come to the UK?
You do know that the COMBINED population of both of those countries is around 26 million.

I don't think that multiculturalism itself is at fault.

The British Dept of Immigration could have limited the amounts of people streaming in.What about such guidelines(irrespective of race and culture) as:

1)Immigrants should have a set of career skills NEEDED,or in short supply in the UK.
2)Only the person applying for residency or citizenship,and their immediate family is allowed in-NO ONE of their relatives come in on the backs of said immigrants-unless they too,can prove that they have the skills to be gainfully employed adn be productive members of society.
3)A revision of what constitutes a realistic "refugee quota"

That's just off the top of my head.I'm sure if the Immigrations Dept were more selective to start with,the situation would not have been so out of hand by now.

Well said Boymonkey.

I'm proud to be a part of a country which is so diverse. In the picture of London in the first post, I see multiculturalism working just fine. It's just people who are afraid of other peoples beliefs, and think that just because one group of people practice one thing, that it means they're "taking over" or some such BS. It's what all our ancestors did when they settled.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

It's a free world. What's your solution? Walled countries? No-fly zones from Third World Countries?

The UK has been 'multi-cultural' for millennia and the non-whites in your example photo could easily be British with several generations behind them.

It isn't like 'multi-culturalism' was a political project that could be deemed to 'fail.' It's an inevitable outcome of free-market economics whereby the poor will always gravitate to richer areas. Our major cities owe their populations to historical migrations of poor country-folk looking for work, money and life-style.

I'm a white Englishman just 3 generations removed from Irish and it's safe to say that (once upon a time) half the world resented the 'multiculturalism' that my lineage represents.

Sure enough, it's a painful process, but it's history in the making too.

My solution would be not to let so many in in the first place, and my policy would be if they don't have a valuable skill or money then their not coming in other then that if they do not find work within six months of arriving then they face automatic deportation. I worked in council housing and I would not allow the benefit abuse that is going on currently.

The combined population of Bulgaria and Romania is 30m hence the statement that 30m would gain unrestricted access to UK, it did not say 30m were moving to the UK. You did not read it properly.

I am all for people striving to make a better life for themselves, and I welcome the law-abiding, hard-working immigrants who really do make an effort. But I really do resent that many come here to no job, and nowhere to live, no plans whatsoever as to how they'll live until they find work. Straight on benefits.

They would also fare far better in our country if they learn a few sentences of English before they come here.

We shouldn't be letting anyone in if they have a criminal record, we don't want them (are EU citizens checked for this? my bad if so).

If they break our laws here, we should send them straight back to their home country for good, we don't want them here, we have more than enough of our own criminals thank you very much.

We should insist they plan for what they're going to need before their move here, instead of landing with nothing but what they are stood up in and expect the rest of us to cough up.

Australia know how to do it and it works fine there - we should follow suit.

The UK may well be a "mongrel" nation,however,the present problem is the sheer numbers of immigrants entering our country,in the past,such as the influx of Jamaican and other carribean citizens into the UK in the late 1940's,the number of non UK citizens entering the country has been controlled,additionally we did not generally open our borders to those with whom we are at war,having Islamic immigrants enter for example is surely sheer folly?
There will be those who will say that the majority of those of the Islamic faith are not a threat,that may be so but how are those that do pose a threat to be identified?
Yes it is history in the making,however,will history record that once,Britain opened its borders to all comers and as a result the British culture and way of life ceased to exist?

The combined population of Bulgaria and Romania is not 30 million. It is just over 26 million. Bulgaria's population is 88.4% ethnic Bulgarian's. Romania's population is 88.6% ethnic Romanian's. Thus the combined ethnic population is around 24 million, and NOT 30 million as the Tory Press had stated.
That's why most people don't believe a word they read in the media.

You might be proud of 'Great' Britain, and good for you. I dont think I know anyone who 'LOVES' multiculturalism...

I personally can't wait for my permanant residency visa to be finalised for Canada. I know a fair few people from my generation who are getting out.

What is it now 4 towns in England alone where English people are a minority?

Actually if you want to start talking about our ancestors the one thing they all did which is severely lacking in current immigrant communities is one simple but very key word.... integration. The Romans, the Normans, the Vikings, the Celts all integrated themselves into our society. All brought their own faith, cultures and ideologies but all integrated into the existing society.

When I walk through my town it feels more like assimilation than integration, down to the fundamental basic requirement for living in a foreign country... understanding the language. Migrant communities have created ghettos within all the major cities out of sheer ignorance and lack of desire to integrate. Why would you need to learn the local dialect when local authorities, emergency services etc have an obligation to provide you with an interpretor? Why would you bother to learn the local dialect when all official correspondence is produced in multiple languages? Why would you need to learn the local dialect when you can speak to your 'careers advisor' in your native tongue while claiming benefits to seek employment you'll never get because you can't speak the flaming language?

Our society has been socially engineered by the liberal elite (thanks tony b-LIAR) to import the vote in a desperate attempt to hold our mainstream politics centre left leaning. It's worked, we now have a Tory PM with policies that'd make some 1970's socialists blush.

What i'm enjoying about the current situation with Europe that we can now air these views as common sense without being branded as racist by the loony lefties that put us in this sorry state of affairs. So there's one decent thing the EU has done for us.

Having had this discussion on more than just a few occassions I don't feel like getting too involved in this thread, however, I'd like to point out that London is not representative of the rest of the UK.

As with most things, London gives quite a skewed impression of the UK as a whole.

21,390,000 + 7,476,000 equals almost 29m so not far off 30m is it?

Ehhhm..no, we have around 18 000 000 still living in Romania.Due to the severe "demographic winter" the number of Romanians considered to be able to work is less than 9 mil. Additionally , England is not the only EU country out-there.
