    So I was talking with my mother and I ask how she would feel if the not-British population left tomorrow, she said 'relieved'. So how would you feel?

    When I say not-British population I mean all those people who aren't ethnically British or of ancestry within Britain. So the Asians, Africans, Jews, Eastern/Southern Europeans and recent immigrants from North Western Europe.

    honestly, quite upset. some of my closest friends are “not-British” and i’d obviously miss them a lot, but even on top of that the thought of Britons becoming that intolerant is quite unnerving.

    I’d feel nothing as there is no reason for them to leave and no one will make them.

    So are we just talking about the black , brown and yellow ones or are you including the white ones in there?

    Are the Americans, Canadians, Dutch, Irish, French , Italians and Germans included?

    Why would you even have that conversation?

    A) It's racist.
    B) It's not feasibly possible - many people of foreign descent are now UK citizens and aren't citizens of any other country, so even if you wanted to you couldn't make them leave. They've got nowhere else to go. This is their home.
    C) It's never going to happen, so it's a pointless conversation. Why not discuss what efforts the UK could make to better integrate immigrant populations?

    Why is it silly? I am asking for clarification.
    The OP merely needs to answer and then we know where we are.

    Idk about that, i'd feel like that's unfair. It would have it's benefits as well as negatives. No matter what. Even if someone said if we got rid of all white people from Britain. Even that would have benefits as well as the negatives.

    But related to this. Everyone who isn't fluent in English definitely should have to leave. I just find that disrespectful tbh.

    Well, it tends to be the case that people calling for the removal of immigrants really mean "them ones that aren't white". The Irish and other Western Europeans tend to be safe from the judgement of the xenophobic.

    I would be quite disappointed because all my favourite take-aways would promptly become defunct, and I might have to eat healthily. Of course, this would marry with the NHS's being inoperative also. Rather ideal, then, that I would have less of a need to use it.
