    That's the point it's an ideology, we wouldn't like it if other pushed their culture on us so why should we push it on others....

    As a side point if an area in the world doesn't have the rights its citizens think it should have its up to THEM to fight for those rights just like our ancestors did.

    Our entire culture is the amalgamation of others pushing their culture onto ours, from the Roman Empire onward. It is plain to see that the UK is an objectively better place to live than the Central African Republic, through empirical data. (the average UK Citizen would be happier, healthier, better educated etc)

    On your second point.

    Look at somewhere like North Korea. Why don't you think the people have overthrown their leader? How on earth would your average peasant there have any inking of what rights are? Let alone be able to fight for them?

    Typical Labor blame the victim (as long as the victim is white) tactics. The point is that without mass immigration, these problems wouldn't exist. You don't have to convince me that most politicians are incompetent anyway. For sure, I agree with that. The point is what needs to be done is what benefits the British people. That should be the guiding principle and nothing else.
    The victim here is the buy-to-let landlord then? That's who I am blaming.

    There is no housing crisis in the sense that we don't have enough homes. The problem is that owner-occupiers have been priced out of the market by people with capital who want somewhere to invest their money - low interest rates and poor stockmarket returns have aggravated this problem. Government policy has encouraged this, as well as encouraging overseas buyers to leave properties empty.
