this shouldn't be surprising to ANYONE.

it's not just in the uk, it's in canada too. i previously talked about how my area is/was growing beyond its means and had a negative unemployment rate... far more jobs than people. suddenly we're immigrating THIRTY german families alone to a community of 3700 people and expect everything to just work?

you can imagine the problems they're having in schools. instead of trickling in, you have a massive influx of children who instead of mixing in with the rest of pupils now stick with their own, and the problems go from there.

am i in anyway defending the BNP? no... especially from their earlier days when they were openly racist and anti-semetic. but it's pretty funny how i sense that many people think that the world lives through the lyrics of bono and that everyone can hold hands and be merry.
Ah, nuance and commonsense. A rare thing on FYM, these days.

of course, i had to go on and say immigrating instead of emmigrating, but alas... my point was made clearly enough i believe.

What did you think of that movie you put on your avatar? Was Kristen Scott Thomas's performance as good as reviewers are saying it is?
Yes, it was oscar worthy in my opinion - as was the entire film. Although I'd say most French films are better than English/American ones on balance. Go and see it

Yeah I really liked that 'Tell no one'. It kept me at the edge of my seat. It was like The Fugitive.

I loathed the book of that, but the film was amazingly done and I found the soundtrack went very well. Especially when they used with or without you

Yeah that was funny. You really felt for the guy. Though I saw Munich before I saw that movie so that actress Croze kind of creeps me out even when she's being sympathetic.

Well it's nice to know that movies can sometimes better than the book.

I have ridiculously strong views on the bnp, but basically - I'm not a fan.

the bnp might be bad, but that's kind of lazy labelling. i read a recent survey conducted by a british polling outfit (i can't recall which one offhand, sorry) found that over 60 per cent of those polled were generally in favour of the BNP's policies when they weren't told that they were in fact policies of the BNP.

that was a remarkably awkward paragraph. do you understand what i'm trying to say? i hope so.

nevertheless, i found this to be incredibly funny. is this an example of post-irony?

Don't worry - I understood

That's not surprising at all giving the xenophobia over here at the moment, and people being so misinformed on the topic of immigration. I can see why a lot of people would agree with the 'stop our country being flooded!!!1' policies; but I think there's a big difference between agreeing with these policies, and associating yourself with the BNP. They incite such violence, towards all minority groups, and it is this violence which people so rightly abhor. If people are going to think stupid things about Immigration, then fine - but the BNP oversteps that line, and encourages its members to be racist and inflict violence. There's just so much wrong with the BNP, I can't even begin to tell you how much I loathe it!

And I've seen that video before, I liked it

If it is alright to run people out of town for being in fascist parties the use of coercion against an opposition MP could be symptomatic of the same problem.

You don't find that sinister?
I frequent another music forum dedicated to the music of a British singer songwriter who has been linked with leftist politics, and members of that forum were horrified to find their posts, with their names and photos, linked to Redwatch, which is a far right, xenophobic website dedicated to bashing the shit out of any on the left. The premise being, you see any of these people on the streets, you hunt them down.
