- NEWS I FIND INTERESTING
If you go and live in a foreign country should you not respect said country?
Should you not adopt and adapt to said country?
Should you not avoid inciting the people of the country to which you are an immigrant to dislike you?
I recently went to a place called Christchurch – despite the name Christian fanatics are pretty thin on the ground, fortunately.
I went there with some chums on a walking football tour as it happens.
Christchurch has a population that is – at a reasonable guess – almost entirely white British.
It’s near The New Forest. A lovely part of the country. I’ve no idea why it’s called ‘The New Forest’ given it’s very old but hey ho, no matter, it’s lovely.
No litter in the streets.
The Cotswolds is another place we’ve been to.
Almost entirely white British. No litter in the streets. None.
The Pennines, just up the road from whence I originated.
Almost entirely white British. No litter.
The list is very long.
Then you turn your attention to my adopted hometown of Hayes, near Heathrow Airport.
A significant number of Asian, African and Eastern European immigrants.
Filthy. Litter everywhere. Polish beer cans and bottles, rubbish in driveways and on the street.
My hometown of Oldham. A high population of Pakistani and Bangladeshi plus a more recent influx of Eastern Europeans.
Filthy. Disgusting. Litter abounds.
Of course, there are areas predominantly white British that are filthy too. These areas tend to be inhabited by people that can often only be described as ‘white trash’.
So. Areas of Britain populated particularly by Asian, African and/or Eastern European immigrants plus ‘white trash’ areas. Filthy.
Areas populated almost exclusively by decent white British people virtually litter free.
I’m not going to give my opinion as to why beyond what I’ve already said.
I’m asking you why.
Why? You tell me.
