    I agree that a persons education and social /cultural background has an affect on their behaviour.

    You anywhere near luton.... Problems with the whites and pakistanis there...... they pakistanis apparently have their own trafffic laws in their neighbourhood!
    Yeh im about 15miles away from Luton, and I can again confirm its not just 'Pakistani' people, the most asian area in luton, is the Bury Park area which is mixed with Pakistan AND Bangladeshi people. So yet again you cant pin it on just that one country of origin.

    But its not just pakistanis though? so why pin it on just that one country. You mentioned Whitechapel, which happens to be mainly Bangladeshi. So you obviously dont know the difference?

    You say its all the same thing? There is a 2000km gap between Pakistan and Bangladesh. Britain is close to france, germany and spain, but would you say english people are the same as french people??

    So my question is what have you got against pakistan?
    I didn't mention whitechapel, apj1006... did. I pointed out that that was a majority bangledeshi area.

    Nothing again pakistan/is, rather just wanted to know if pakistanis agreed with the observation.

    you must have been to the asian area of luton?

    no doubt bangledeshis may behave in a similar way. I thought bury park was a majority pakistani area (apparently they even have urdu signs up all over the place

    'unlady like'..... not something the british can complain of!
    "unlady like"- telling the guy that he shouldn't apologise. I understood every word they said.

    He spat, I looked at him, gave him the dirtiest look, a man could give. He apologised.
    It is disgusting and unwarranted. He wouldn't spit in his own living room floor.


    I am not comparing the British to the Pakistanis.

    Some of the worst areas in the UK have no immigrants. I suggest a visit to Stoke, Dundee or any impoverished northern town/city in the UK. There's an area in Scotland which has a lower life expectancy than Bangladesh and it has virtually no immigrants.
    It looks someone has been watching a bit too much, of 'the secret millionaire''.

    Had a discussion during lunch with some Pakistanis and it came around to different Pakistani communities across Britain. One guy had the view that wherever there was a commmunity which was majority Pakistani, then the living and social conditions were somewhat worse for wear. Examples such as litter on the footpaths, people spitting everywhere, no order on the roads (people cutting over, stopping in the middle of traffic to greet friends in nearby cars etc; essentially creating a traffic system similar to that in Karachi; well perhaps not as bad!)

    Another thing was knowing how to form an orderly queue and waiting ones turn for service (ie. in a bank)....

    there are other such examples...... Now I don't necessarily agree with this but can see where the guy was coming from)

    Not having a go at pakistanis, but would like to hear from any Pakistanis who agree with such a generalisation (especially from those who live in areas of high pakistani numbers; up north etc
    From my own observations; the observations that you've listed are unfortunately true.

    Man I hate that show. They patronise these people the entire show, then give a youth club 20 grand out of their 20 million. That's about the generosity equivalent of me spitting on a tramp who's on fire.

    OI you :mad:

    And to the OP I somewhat agree aswell, big generalisation though as some of my friends dislike these sort of Paksitanis, being part Pakistani myself I do admit that places with high poplulation of Pakistani, Bangladeshis and generally South Asians are quite messy.

    It's not a matter of whether its my "business" or the "business" of the pakistani guys I was discussing this with. I am further discussing a topic which was covered with some pakistani guys at work.

    Do you agree/disagree with the views expressed?

    My opinion is that how others behave in society is their own business. Commenting on why Pakistanis drive badly is by the by and superfluous.

    its just for all asians..i think they dont leave their dirty background back specially the indians
    How dare you say '' we have dirty backgrounds'' would you like it if we said that to you? You think what you think but a majority of people think that your wrong and you should think before your writing.
