I enjoyed that Emdee, thanks. It shows fault on both sides but it's that last two sentences that sum up the most fearful part!

I have first hand experience of dealing with those here illegally and i can tell you they are committing crime of all sorts including drug dealing, credit fraud, assault, sex offences and robberies.


Oh dear and I can give you many more experiences of British people who are exactly the same Bob.


I totally agree, so lets deal with that lot before we let anymore criminals in

I beg to differ.

Yesterday in London................

Nick Pearton, 16, chased and stabbed to death in park


"A teenage boy was chased through a playground by a mob of youths wielding knives and baseball bats before being stabbed to death in London’s latest outbreak of fatal gang violence.

Nick Pearton, 16, who was cradled by his mother as he lay bleeding from multiple knife wounds, became the tenth teenager to be murdered in the capital this year. Seven of those victims have been killed in the past six weeks.

Local people, who called police to report a disturbance in the park, said today that they saw the boy, who is white, running away from a group of black youths armed with knives and baseball bats. "

What has this to do with immigration ? Unless of course the black kids where English - and the White Kids Eastern European . :D

Like a circle in a spiral - Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning - On an ever-spinning reel
As the images unwind - Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind.

I have to say I agree there Ionns. That these scumbags did something sickening and wrong is not in doubt. The colour of their skin is irrelevant, and should not be used as a cheap way of whipping up anti-immigrant sentiment. Knife crime in London is certainly something to be tackled and certainly, particularly the cultural problem with young black males but it is a youth underclass problem I think. Go to Glasgow and you'll be more likely to be chased by white youths armed with knives and baseball bats. :?
