My main worry for the UK ( & Oz in the long term)

Recommended Posts

Yesterday it kicked off again in Birmingham city centre ., between the so called " English defence league " and anti fascists, with 90 arrests .

Police struggled to keep the two groups apart, bricks and bottles were thrown .

The english defence league ,are basically white football supporters demonstrating against Islamic extremism.

This is the 2nd time in a month , that there have been clashes.

I fear this open hostility will eventually spread to the major cities of Australia, as it did in Cronulla last year - www.sundaymercury.net

ps The media are trying to keep the lid on this by saying this is a fascist v anti fascist argument ......we all know its more straightforward than that.

These are the first open demonstrations against Islam.....any opinions


BUT I DONT FEEL AFRAID

Untill "moderate Islam" are prepared to speak out against the "hard core" I can't see the situation improving. The media and government also needs to grow a spine and speak out about the way (most) Muslims treat women, gays, infidels, apostates, sharia law,.....

That said, i've met lots of muslims that are gentile peace loving poeple but the the problem is (in my eyes) is the control this religion has over them.

I find it difficult to see how it can improve in the UK in the near future, and - for me - one of the main reasons is that England as a nation doesn't seem to be allowed to celebrate its heritage to the full. Yes, we are a multi-cultural nation and that is to be celebrated.. (eg we swap gifts at Christmas and food at Eid with our Muslim next door neighbours as we get on great)...

 

But why oh why oh why oh why oh why do we keep ending up with "winterval/winterfest" up and down the country instead of Christmas? Why do have I had to read in my local paper that my local Red Cross shop took down their Christmas tree because somebody complained about it not representing their faith (Islam)???? Why can't our soldiers walk through their town for a coming home parade without there being vicious abuse directed at them???

 

And why oh why FFS have the BNP now got TWO SEATS IN THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT:realmad:

 

The answer is simple. The powers that be in England wasting too much time pandering to the PC brigade IMHO, and many many people feel their voices/concerns aren't heard. Why can't we celebrate England a bit more - have St Georges day as a national holiday? Why are people who fly the union flag or the St Georges Cross outside their house sometimes suspected of being racist? Maybe they just want to show a bit of national pride.

 

Of course you can get historical and talk about England's history of colonizing nations/war mongering etc - and true no country is perfect. I just think that there needs to be an honest balanced debate about reining in political correctness - otherwise I fear more BNP and the like will be voted in by a frustrated electorate and there could be more of what we saw in Birmingham at the weekend.

 

And before anyone starts with the accusations I am mixed-race (four nationalities) not racist, just sick of seeing PC turning England toxic:arghh:

Rant over.

Don't have a problem with Asian's in Blackburn

 

The problem is they have dark skin and wear funny things on their face so I guess you could say they stand out, hard to fit in when you look different....... Thank goodness the Poll's wear socks with their sandles so they stick out as well.......

 

Maybe if we took the time to be a little more understanding we all might get along alot better

 

Tell you one thing though when the Muslims take up the Mormons philosophy on trying to convert i'll get my plackard's out and stand on the corner with you...... :biglaugh:

Hi, my first post, I have lived in the UK for 4 years now and never heard it called winterval or winterfest:GEEK: it has only been calle Christmas in the London area where I live, what is "winterville"? the UK seems to have trouble with immagrants and I agrre that for such a small Country you cannot really let many more people in, I only got in as I married and English lady even though I had English parents but I was born in Oz, you would not believe the problems we went through t get in to the UK.

Yeah , that sounds like the UK , 30 YEARS AGO.....its gone beyond a bit of name calling now....Its now down to open hostility in some areas of the UK.

Oz has to be really careful about its immigration policy.

Rural parts of Oz will remain unaffected , but i can see major issues for Sydney and Melbourne.

It all relates to "turf" -and who runs it .

As well as white on muslim trouble , we have also had trouble in Handsworth ,Birmingham between the West Indian community and the muslims,which led to 2 deaths.......not good.

Yesterday it kicked off again in Birmingham city centre ., between the so called " English defence league " and anti fascists, with 90 arrests .

Police struggled to keep the two groups apart, bricks and bottles were thrown .

The english defence league ,are basically white football supporters demonstrating against Islamic extremism.

This is the 2nd time in a month , that there have been clashes.

I fear this open hostility will eventually spread to the major cities of Australia, as it did in Cronulla last year - www.sundaymercury.net

ps The media are trying to keep the lid on this by saying this is a fascist v anti fascist argument ......we all know its more straightforward than that.

These are the first open demonstrations against Islam.....any opinions

 

I spoke to a friend of mine on Skype on Saturday morning (UK Time) before this hapened and he told me about the march and the what was about to happen and why and how as England were playing that night there would be a lot of support for the EDL, i do know what and who this was about but what i dont know is how this by any stretch of the imagination this can be linked or have any bearings to Australia

I think "it's an accepted part of the language" could be a bit misleading. PC people like me and many others never use it.

 

It has been made more acceptable because Italians, Greeks etc embraced the word themselves back in the 80's/90's in tv shows and took the sting out of the word. It is now common for Greeks/Italians to refer to themselves like that and anglo friends are allowed to join in if said in the right spirit. Rather than being 30 years behind and pre-PC, I think a better way to describe it would be post-PC.

 

Of course there are still some who use it as a racist term but they are the minority and it is definitely not acceptable.

Sorry don’t buy it…..

The problems caused are by a minority not majority; I take it the majority of Muslims fit well into UK society work hard pay taxes etc, etc, etc.

Then why don’t the majority stand up and be counted by showing they disapprove of the extremist’s actions? For the same reasons British people don’t do anything about the skin heads BNP etc. In the privacy of our own homes we are quiet happy to have an opinion on the rights and wrongs of life but when it comes to picking up a placard we all find our reasons not too!

The same laws you whinge about give you the rights you have today. If you can see Brittan changing and you’re not happy start up web sites get involved in politics do your bit to make a change……… oh that’s it you’ll be branded a racist! We can’t have that can we? You talk about Asian’s using the racist card you’re using it to sit on your arse and do nothing…..

Look at how many of you Brits whinge about Australia and complain about stupid things such as weetabix! Why do you whinge? Because it’s not the same as home! You’re lucky you are moving to a Commonwealth country what is based on the British systems so you can just slot right in but you still want change! The history is crap, sausages are crap, it rain’s to much, it’s to hot gee I could go on and on about everything people are not happy with

But you expect people from other countries coming to Britain not to want to bring their culture etc.

I would think people who are either in Australia, wanting to move to Australia, or found Australia not for them to have more respect for migrants entering Britain and realizing just how hard it is to make the move.

What ever the reasons people have to want to make the move to the UK you can’t blame them for wanting a better life, if someone offers you free housing, free NHS, money etc are you going to turn it down? The anger you have should not be directed at these people but the people who make the rules and have put these plans in place.
