TOO MANY IMMIGRANTS IN THE UK?

Seven in 10 Britons believe there are too many immigrants in the country, an Ipsos Mori poll showed.
Three in four agreed that immigration has placed too much pressure on public services while three in five agreed that it had made it harder for Britons to get jobs.
Just one in four thought immigration had been good for the economy, the survey of 1,000 people showed.
I don't think there has been too much immigration into the UK, I think it's been the wrong immigrants.

Let me explain what I mean.  Immigrants from the third world, i.e. outside of  Europe, have very little compunction to integrate and adopt the host culture of the UK.  Many are black and whilst this shouldn't make a difference, most of the population of the UK is not.  Many are devoutly Muslim, which is different to the 'Christian' religion of this country.  Their experiences and customs are different to ours.  What tends to happen therefore is that they end up in enclaves all over the country.  Places like Bradford and Blackburn are testimony to that.  In Glasgow, the poorer Asian immigrants congregate around the Allison Street area, until they earn serious money and then they move out to the 'South-Side'.

Left-wingers will tell me, they bring employment.  Er, no!  They tend to employ other Asians who are married off to various family members.  I have experience of some elderly women who have been here for 40 years and can speak no more than six words of English.  

The other argument we hear is that there has been immigration into Scotland for a thousand years.  Well, yes, but from Europe, where the people tend to have a similar culture to us.  Where have you been in Europe that feels distinctly different from the UK, apart from the obvious differences like language.  There is a current case before the courts of a woman who is being barred from bringing her husband over from India, because he comes from a small village, (a cousin) and can't speak English.  She says the ruling is against her human rights.  Well, IMO, it's against our human rights to let her husband in, if he doesn't want to integrate in this country.  She could always go over and join him in India!

As some of you know, I am hoping to emigrate to Spain at some point, (thanks anonymous, it will be good riddance).  Now I don't know whether or not it will work out.  But, I do know one thing it won't be because I'm not willing to integrate into Spanish society.  I'm brushing up my Spanish which I learnt some years ago and fully expect to take part in Spanish traditions, like fiestas.  I don't agree totally with bull fighting, but that's got fuck all to do with me, as is the case with the Roman Catholic religion which I fundamentally disagree with because I don't like any religion.  But, religion is in many ways the thing that makes Spain such an attractive country, so my lips will be sealed!

For too long in this country, immigration has been one of the 'elephants in the room'.  It's time we brought it out in the open and at least discussed it without us being labelled as 'racists' for doing so.

Call me pedantic , DL , but Allison Street is in the South Side .

Good luck with the Spain move , by the way . A pal of mine has moved over there , for part of the year anyway , and has done f**k all but drink . He comes back to sunny Lanarkshire's hostelries to get a rest from serious ex-pat drinking .

Me ? I'd be deid in a fortnight .

The UK takes in about 1,000,000 immigrants a year. This in a country that could fit into a small corner of Ontario and already has about seven times the population. The SE of England is full to bursting and the SNP wants to take the overflow. Would Scotland be a better place to live with 10,000,000 people?

Interesting...I partially live in N. Ireland. Very few immigrants move live here...in fact I can't remember seeing any obvious Muslims etc., not really surprising considering the political/religious make up of the country.
BTW: Bull fighting has been banned in Madrid & several other places in Spain.. :)

Interesting post DL. I agree that the problem is not the people, it is with the little ghettos they set up. If you want an extreme example you need look no further than Leicester where the locals have been turned in to the foreigners.

I am publishing a piece next week on migrant workers. It seems that Brits have been complaining that employers are tipping agencies the wink that they want migrants because their work ethic is better than the Brits. Naturally, the Brits point out that this is illegal!!

Good luck in Spain. My advise is don't settle in an urbanisation. This is basically a ghetto for foreigners.

And double check all your paperwork. Ripping off foreigners is a Spanish national pasttime.

Hmmm think your on stoney ground with this one. If you go to Aberdeen you'll find asians and orientals who have integrated perfectly well into the community, the slightly disconcerting experience of a Chinese person speaking fluent Doric is a good example of how integration can work well if done properly. If the immigrant is made to feel welcome, he is more likely to integrate, if he is alienated then he will stick to his own culture. Saying that, Scotland does have a problem with immigrants, not so much in the central belt but in the more rural areas where there is an almost Bosnian form of ethnic cleansing going on. If you travel to any beautiful far flung spot you'll find a large proportion of English immigrants, they aren't recorded as such because apparently they are the same ethnicity yet they are aggressive invaders, bringing their southern values to communities where these values are alien to the laid back locals. They are also usually retired, so they don't bring work or young families, in a misguided attempt to help they jump on to the local councils and apply the values they learned in Surrey to a completely different culture. Give me a young "muslim" or African family anytime compared to these leaches, they integrate much more readily and inject new life and colour to failing communities.

Oli, yes but you know what I mean. Allison street is nearly in the centre and they then move out to the suburbs.

No, I won't be hopefully getting too involved in too many ex-pat things, if I wanted that I could have stayed here and bought a sunbed.

Dark Lochnagar said...

McGonners, the short answer to that is no. Londonstan is becoming, I am told, a shitehole. 'British' people are being driven out of the centres into the suburbs.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Dippers, welcome to the blog. No, I don't remember seeing any Muslims any time I've been over either. Maybe it's just they think with the extremities in the Christian religion you've got, it maybe wouldn't be a good idea to introduce another!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Greekers, aye there are places all over the country with numbers of people from the Indian sub-continent crammed in. Whether Sharia law is as widespread as they say it is I don't know. We're fortunate so far that we don't have too much immigration, but if they all decided to come to Scotland we'd be sunk! Literally.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Mark, welcome to the blog. I think the Chinese tend to integrate better, but I suppose that's only an opinion, I don't have facts to back it up.

There is certainly a problem with many English colonising places like Skye for instance, but while we still have the British Isles that's going to continue. It's not the odd family moving in from Asia, that is the problem, it's when all the cousins and other relations arrive. There have been certain reports of inbreeding amongst Pakistanis in particular and many don't have resistance to certain types of illness as a result.

But either way it's time it was brought out in the open and discussed properly because mass immigration has been hoisted on the British people behind our backs.

Mark McCann said...

I lived in East Ham in London for 2 years where there is a majority of Pakastani immigrants. My wife could walk down the street at night unmolested and she felt safer there than anywhere else in London. The Pakastanis, whatever you think of their religion, teach their children respect and family values, something the indegenous population seem to have forgotten. We in Scotland are reaping the exodus of intolerant English who "can't live in an ethnically diverse society". The reason we have so many immigrants from the Indian subccontinent is because it used to be part of our empire, they fought with us during the war and were invited here to fill the void after our own population was decimated, their families and relatives quite rightly have followed them looking for a better life. Nothing wrong with discussing immigration but everything wrong with not looking at the bigger picture. If you went to Spain and encountered the same level of hostility that our immigrants are met with, wouldn't you seek the company of fellow expat Scots? And the comment on inbreeding really doesn't help your "balanced" opinion.

"expect to take part in Spanish traditions, like fiestas. "

Is that not a wank mag ?

Dark Lochnagar said...

Mark, you make a fair point, but the point I made about inbreeding is a fact, I have read several articles about it, try Googling it.

I agree that most Asian kids have better manners than the in-breds who are 'native', but that is not always the case and I believe that a number of offences aren't brought to fruition by our law authorities in case it caused racial friction.

I think you will also find that they're are a higher ratio of convicted prisoners who are black than they're are whites.

Most of the indigenous Asians who settled here after the war were Bangladeshis who were brought in as cheap labour by mill owners in the North of England, hence their predominance in that part of the country. I am, I am afraid against any more wholesale immigration from the third world.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Mark, BTW if I go to Spain and receive hostility, (which I won't), I would be on the first plane home.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Reader's wife, FFS yes, don't tell mine!

Billy said...

I saw someone with the full head to toe black Burka on here in Paisley for the first time a couple of days ago.

My first thought was that it was probably one of our own locals with their new shoplifting disguise on their way to work as they say.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Billy, I thought they dressed as Bin Laden?

DL, check this out, can vouch for Jonathan Azaziah, who thoroughly researches his stuff..

Dark Lochnagar said...

Dumfries, an interesting piece if a little too long for me. There doesn't seem to be anything there that I could find fault with but in a serious piece like that, I prefer some decent links.

I flagged it up as MOSSAD as soon as I heard it BTW. Check the post.

former doonhamer said...

@DL : I would have sent the proper link but was unable to paste it here in the comments section, and couldn`t find an e-mail address

Dark Lochnagar said...

Dumfries, no, I meant the links in the piece by Azaziah. He makes plenty of points which to him, seem to be verabatum, but he does not provide a link so that the reader can check it out. No it wasn't meant in anyway as a criticism of your link, I hadn't read him before and I found it interesting if a little long-winded!

former doonhamer said...

@DL : OK.. yes, he is long-winded, but thorough. I like him..
Just heard on Norwegian news channel that racist posters have been plastered all over in the town of Lillehammer, a so-called "expert" gave his tuppeny worth, and pointed a finger at Iran as being the only country in the world to have an anti-Islam ideology, can you believe the gall of such people? He is deflecting attention from THE most likely suss "country", and this could have serious consequences. In my opinion, too many people in power have closed their eyes to the real danger, to their cost. Sorry to rant on, but I have a bloody big bee in my bonnet. I go out with the strimmer, and every bloody weed, or blade of grass, is an IOF thug, or Jewish parasitic "settler."

Dark Lochnagar said...

Dumfries, rant away, that's what the blog is here for. Since when did Iran have an anti-Islam policy, fuck me, they get better every day!

It's easy to get carried away. Quite often my wife will tell me to stop going on about Jews, but there everywhere, particularly when you turn on a TV. They talk about the Masons giving each other a helping hand, the Jews have got it down to an art!
