Seven years after Blair announced the failure of multi-culturism, Jack Straw has admitted that the decision to let in 100s of 1000s of people from the enlarged EU when the rest of europe did not was a mistake. Does this mean it is safe for us 'racists' that knew this already can come out of hiding?

According to the evidence, the immigrants from the magic kingdom of Eurotania have contributed more to our fine Donkeyland than they have taken. It's the great unwashed from places like Nigeria, Pakistan and the like, who the statisticians now say take out more than they put in.

This may, or may not apply to the promised influx of Romanian Gypsies. Although looking at their skills, education, work record, lifestyle, criminal behaviour... there's good grounds for saying their arrival will not be beneficial for those already living here, and will reduce their incomes and quality of life. Best not to let them in. IMMHO UKey should let in those with: loads of money wishing to start up health food shops and/or shortage skills (like nuclear engineers and Spanish teachers). No to idle, useless, unemployable free loaders

.....be bold.....think Tiberius!

...are you suggesting UKey invades Romania and pens in their gypsies...easier to refuse them admission, and refuse to allow any landing here to disembark.

Wot?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

In reply to an earlier post on 15 Nov 2013 19:38:39 GMT
Didn't Tiberius invade places like Romania?

What would he be planning re potential wave upon wave of Romanian gypsies?

James T....would ......say.......little.....his speech.....is filled....with.......long pauses......he might ask Bones.....or even Spock....

I asked you what he would be planning.

A Kobymiashi maneuvere.

In reply to an earlier post on 15 Nov 2013 22:32:44 GMT
OK, I've looked it up on wikipiddly:

Kobymiashi maneuver = a no win scenario, whatever option you choose.

Sounds right:

* Bar the Romanian's and incur the wrath of Ukey's overlords the all powerful Eurocratborg, all out war, UKey crushed, left a windswept sheep farm on the outer edges of the Eurogalaxy.

* Open the gate and let 'em in, result total collapse...Ukey becomes windy sheep farm.

You choose Captain Gomsy

Apparently there are already 200,000 roma here already. With a further influx there will be more of them here than in any other single nation in europe. Even David Blunkett can see problems arising. Should be a few good scraps at Epsom Derby.

Bryant has said that the gov should be publishing their estimate of the numbers of Romanians and Bulgarians they expect to arrive...like Labour did when he was in power...13,000 Poles was their estimate, lol.

Gov figs do show about 150,000 Bulgarians and Romanians are here already and working, so expect about 100,000 new arrivals in 2014. They come here not because unemployment is higher at home but because wages are five times higher...so is the cost of living, and rents in the SE are probably 20x higher.

David Blunkett, possibly the worst Home Secretary since Michael Howard has an unfounded Daily Mail opinion which has been proved incorrect by yesterdays Guardian. In the Shefield area refered to there are lower crime rates than many other parts of the city.

Haven't we heard this nonsense over and over again when any ethnic group from another country move over to Britain. Silly scare stories about drug dealing and selling babies. No blacks, no dogs, no Irish anyone?

As soon as I saw the title of the thread I knew it would be by easytiger. Some things never change unfortunately.

I seem to remember you not having a very high opinion of eastern europeans in Ireland not so long ago.
