The Irish are the best example of cultural integration watch

    No they're not. Irish culture has brought over gypsy culture that causes massive issues for residents in many areas.

    Irish people are also not particularly well integrated into English society and still identify as Irish and still celebrate St. Patrick's Day over St. George's Day.

    The crime rates amongst Irish immigrants is also a lot higher than average.

    This idea that the Irish are some sort of model immigrant group is frankly absurd.
    Why don't you complain about White British people who don't integrate ?

    Culturally yes we are different (and more protective of it that the UK seems to be) but we have many similarities as well. See what i wrote above. We are not that far estranged.
    I was being sarcastic....

    Yeah cos Britian has no gypsies. You gave the world the chav so you can get off your high horse on that.

    Paddys day is celebrated by the British just as much by the Irish. Those massive parades - not just done by the Irish, seeing as most of the are hosted by the council.

    Really and where is your proof of that?
    We didn't give the world chavs.. we merely gave the world the word chav. The St. Patrick's day celebrations are indeed celebrated by Brits but that's because so many have Irish ancestry and it's an excuse for a drink
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
