    So move out then. Enjoy the great heritage and beauty you can find elsewhere. The most tranquil county of England, Northumberland, with its hills, moorland, beautiful coastline, mountains, castles, world heritage sites and lovely villages and market towns sounds ideal for someone like you.

    Your ignorance of this country (outside the south east and your ludicrous comment that all houses used to be large) is astounding.
    Stop trolling this topic. You are warning everyone but the intolerant leftists.

    I suppose there are ways.

    Here's one, how would the free market solve inner city gun crime?
    It can't. But neither can Socialism.

    They wouldn't if the government stayed out of the economy and didn't tax business so much; goods would be cheaper and wages would be higher.

    No point telling that to bleeding-heart liberals like you though, handouts are the only concept you can grasp.
    I seriously hope that you don't believe everyone can be rich in a capitalist society.

    I don't really care much for the sniping from either side.

    But if the OP is so upset with the state of the south east (and thinks the rest of the country is like that) he, or she, needs to get out a bit more.

    I am very puzzled by the "large houses" remark though.

    Of course not, but the vast majority of people would be more prosperous than under socialism.

    Very doubtful, what have the Danes ever achieved?

    The British are a unique race, not 'European'.
    British is not a race.

    No I don't, you seem utterly confused as to what you are saying.


    Modern Britain is a culmination of history.

    Britain wouldn't be Britain had the Saxons not invaded, had the Normans not invaded etc.

    If these people had not settled you nor I would be here discussing this.

    It is completely absurd to consider anything without reference to the past.
    Oh really. I suppose it had everything to do with Saxons and Celts, not the industrial revolution and Normans.

    Wrong. There are three scientific denominations of Humanity, Caucasian (which we have already discussed), Negroid and Mongoloid (East Asian 'oriental').

    Each group is related closely to those whom it describes. Indians are more related to Europeans than North Africans. Neverthless, you talk about them as if they are a different species, they are not. Humanity is one species the differences, genetically, between 'races' is ridiculously low.

    I'm finished here anyway, you clearly only want "white" people here regardless of their true genetic heritage :rolleyes:
    There aren't any 'scientific' denominations of the races of mankind, we can be considered one species and one breed if you will. The distinction that is drawn is less based on taxonomy and more on quantitive genetics to estabilsh genetic distance. There is no cuacasian, negroid or mongoloid in science.

    No Brits would need benefits due to lack of jobs if the immigrants left :rolleyes:

    Mental/phsyical problems is another issue :yep:
    Thats the oldest excuse in the book,'the immigrants are taking our jobs':rolleyes: the only jobs being taken by 'immigrants' are those within the construction trade,unless of course you want to talk about the 'immigrants' who work in accounts,dentistry those who are surgeons,psychaitrists,pharmacis ts etc

    I agree, My Uncle & Aunt live in Newcastle and we've been around a lot of Northumberland. It is a nice place, with lots of detatched private houses.

    Sorry, one last question. If a woman is on benefits and has 5 kids, but has a husband working a low paying job, should she get sterilized?

    Modern Britain is the result of immigration though, without it Britain would have been a VERY different place, in fact there may not have even BEEN a Britain, we might still be England, Scotland and Wales....
    That may be true, however ones ignorance should not lead to the brandishing of titles such as Mr BNP.

    They take low paid, poorly skilled jobs that students like myself would love to do. They also send the money back to their home country. This causes huge leaks from the economy and increases our unemployment

    It's a completely ridiculous point anyway, Black Caribbean people in particular were ASKED to come over to Britain after the second world war. Empire Windrush.
