My problem is with poorly disguised racism like "indigenous British people". I'd be interested to know if I count as an "indigenous British person" - my family got here some time before 1100 A.D. from Normandy. Of course, the "indigenous British people" didn't call us "immigrants" - they probably called us lots of other things. You'd probably say I was French. How about the Black British? "Liverpool is home to Britain's oldest black community, dating to at least the 1620s, and some Black Liverpudlians are able to trace their ancestors in the city back ten generations" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_British What exactly is an "Indigenous British Person"? White Anglo-Saxon? Surely not - the Saxons were Germans. Welsh? Scottish? Couldn't be - all that Celtic blood - and the red hair and freckles left behind when the Vikings came and did their raping and pillaging.pentax5ACEr...I did actually Hugh, on a canvas with paint and brushes! Not sure what your problem is with my age and ethnicity though; unless of course I was considering membership of the OBV, in which case I would be rejected on both counts. Why not instead, have a go at a sensible response to the original post, instead of petty personal jibes. I think it was to do with second generation Muslims being prepared to take up arms against the U.K. See if you can demonstrate to us your political acumen (that's a bit like "balls") by arguing your own personal view. We appreciate your vocabulary will be limited, but see if you can surpass yourself and surprise us all.
And I suppose everyone who got out that Syrian Prison are now all tending their allotments and helping little old ladies across the street, rather than murdering innocent people in Irag. Ultimately the question is not about left versus right, race, Britishness, or even religion, the question should be... What do we do about Islamic extremists who go out from the UK, to fight in Syria or Iraq? And the simple answer must be, they are never, ever allowed back in again. Simple. Good bye and good riddance. Dave
pentax5ACHaving flown the multicultural flag so long from the fractured, socialist flagstaff from which it now limply drapes, you could half expect the liberals at the BBC refer to second generation Asian immigrants as “radicalised Britons” But most indigenous British people over the age of fifty would recognise them for what they really are...TRAITORS! British educated Muslims willing to take up arms against the UK is a complete betrayal of the hospitality afforded their parents; a sad testimony to the lunacy of open ended immigration and a wakeup call for those politicians who still fail to recognise that the supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evil, not to facilitate it.
