    If you hate Britain so much then leave then .... I'm sure we will be fine without you
    Not loving =/= hating.
    I feel ambivalent towards this arbitrary peice of land which is in an arbitrary planet on an arbitrary universe with a history which has absolutely nothing to do with me and filled with people which have absolutely nothing to do with me.

    In America BLM have successfully got segregated accommodation and were upset they couldn't get away with having a black only meeting in a public building along with many other things.

    Here in the uk some students are calling for lbgt only accommodation.

    This does not help promote the idea everyone is equal.
    Thank you for giving the context that Jammy was incapable of providing.

    I agree that these things are ill conceived and only create divisiveness with a "us and them" attitude. I understand why those who are oppressed or maligned by society may seek to take shelter from that but I don't believe this is particularly helpful and ultimately integration is key. Unfortunately liberals can be just as irrational as conservatives at times.

    Well, I don't regard her to be any more important than anyone else.

    Exactly the same point this will create a us and them environment and I don't think universities should help promote that.

    Having pride in your nation is a good thing but when it gets to the point where you only want similar people around you then problems arise.

    What I can't believe is the Aber Uni Welsh Society going on hunger strike. As a Welsh society president myself I just can't imagine us doing anything quite that extreme.

    For me it is the ugly face of Welsh nationalism though, yes. Having gone to a bilingual school with separate sixth-form common rooms for English- and Welsh-medium pupils I am a strong critic of that sort of segregation.

    And of course even Welsh speakers often choose to speak English with one another anyway.

    The problem is that if we just limited immigration a tad, the schools and hospitals that need extra funding would need less extra funding. We can get the benefits that immigration brings without as many negatives if we just control it slightly.

    No, that is mocking disabled people. If you find that funny then you're a vile individual.
