    Well that's why the average white person/middle class person doesn't care about gang warfare - out of sight, out of mind? At the moment, it's still probably a bigger problem for our society than terrorism is but doesn't get anywhere near the same level of coverage or funding.

    Surely by your logic, if you avoid the major hot spots then you're reducing the risk to terrorism? Not exactly how you want society to live their lives - need to tackle the root than avoid the problem.

    I guess I was trying to make more of a point about the press and their uneven and potentially harming coverage. Frankly the more the press try and turn public opinion against muslims in this country (so far it's mainly been about foreigners and ISIS outside of the UK even if it spills over domestically), the more chances you have of radicalising muslims who have grown up in this country - that's when **** is going to get scary.
    By my logic yes that's the case, it's a sad truth and not an ideal situation but if you want to avoid things like that happening you have to reduce risk.

    I don't think many muslims who have grown up in this country will be radicalised, yes there will be a few(as with most groups) but I don't think that's going to be a major problem, not in the UK anyway, which is pretty accommodating as a country to muslims living here abiding the law I believe.

    What do you mean by the new generation? As in second generation immigrants? I am a second generation immigrant and tbh all my siblings have similar views to mine and have integrated to society fairly well.

    Also in major cities you will have the old generation generally staying in areas that have a high level of their people there, it's no surprise that asians will generally chill with one another in that sense, however in schools where there is a fair amount of multi culture they will integrate fairly well. Heck I went to university where the population was 90% white(although more mixed at the actual university) and well I settled fine.
    New generation as in 2nd generation immigrants yeah, people like you and me. Also how well certain people integrate is highly linked with their educational background from what I've seen

    Yeah that case in London I guess could the same be said for places up north with asian populations?
    I can only assume so. Living within a small asian population doesn't stop our generation from integrating down here. I mean there's large asian populations within London as it is, not sure why it'd be too different up north.

    Around £200 Paid off a chunk of my credit card bill and the rest got reinvested elsewhere. Not much fun I know.

    My colleague put in £500 and doubled his money.

    Would be absolute top bants though. Guarantee he'd be assassinated.

    Hilary's not much better, actually more corrupt and dodgy if anything.

    Trump wouldn't even be that bad. He's saying what people want to hear, he's making controversial statements because the media is by election standard letting him run a campaign for free. Don't forget this guy used to be a democrat supporter. I think he's loves the attention and playing his support like a fiddle.

    Being elected president doesn't make you a dictator, the vast majority of the stuff he's saying is unconstitutional or will be struck down by the Supreme Court. He's got no friends in congress. It's simply not going anywhere. That's assuming he even wanted to, which I honestly doubt.

    The problem isn't Trump anyway. He's just a candidate. The problem is he's a candidate with large support. Once Hilary wins, Trump goes away but the million of Americans who identified with him for various reasons won't.

    Much like the whole UKIP Brexit thing there are two games the political one, UKIP lost, and the one of where society is heading and that will manifest itself somewhere else if those concerns remains, like all those people who didn't vote for UKIP but still identified with what they stood for.
