    Because British people couldn't even get a job in a foreign supermarket because they're generally crap at languages.

    Oh wait, apart from all the English-owned businesses on the Costa del Sol and in Cyprus who fill up their employment ranks with English people who don't even speak Spanish or Greek. Same people whose kids attend British schools and never learn the language of where they live. There are over 53 British schools in Spain (just the ones registered with the NABS). Imagine if there were over 53 Spanish-curriculum schools in the UK that taught only in Spanish and served a Spanish community who shopped in Spanish shops, worked in Spanish businesses and only had Spanish friends. There'd be an uproar.

    When people from other countries go abroad, they're immigrants. When British people go abroad, we're 'expats'. I think that says it all.
    Thats only one corner of Spain - a country which is relatively homogenous and underpopulated and critically their communities are not fractured and broken like ours. We have so many English people that are NEETs that are unempoyable, or cannot get operations. By far the greatest number of homeless people are local no question. I so no problem with the odd pole here or there or the odd foreign student but the numbers we've got now were are talking some serious ethnic cleaning.

    Spain has massive youth unemployment compared to us. It was 43.9% in May this year.

    Spain is not a homogenous country; it has diversity both within 'Spanish' people - Spanish people can be native speakers of Castillian Spanish, Catalan, Galician, Mirandese, Occitan etc etc. (Hence the separatist movement in Catalunya).

    13% of Spain's population is immigrants. In the UK, it's 11.9%.

    Yeah, it says that some of them are leaving this country and some of them are coming here. That's how the English language works.

    If the Spanish don't want all the English tourism and pensioner money they get then, hopefully, they'll soon be in a position to object. That doesn't impact upon how we ought to deal with the issue here.

    No, it's not like the Harry Enfield sketch. Many are men.

    As in the people that work in coffee shops - do you think most of the girls are pretty? Do you associate the job with mostly attractive females?
    sometimes they are
    you want pretty girls then go to outlets of luxury
    watch dealers
    jewellery dealers
    car dealership
    luxury clothes stores
    that sort of thing
    that where you find the prettiest ones
    and as they say the pretty ones or the ugly ones they cost the same to employ at the end of the day
