Do The British Really Like Immigrants ?

reading a link posted in the "ugly britain" thread about how britons view their country and whether they will not leave for another country i was very disappointed and angry and i personally think the british are the most hypocritiical unfriendliest insincerest and evilest people i the world. why do they allow immigrants to come to their country at all ? I sense atime bomb ticking

Word.I think Nigerians would be the worse if tables were turned and people came to work in their country.Its in our culture to take advantage of people and also oppress people.See area boys claiming 'owo ile' for goods brought into lagos island by predominantly igbo traders.

People are bleating about how racist the UK are, but the same thing happens in our dear Naija.  people are racist (tribalist morelike) in Nigeria too for eg you 've got people saying they don't like these 'omo igbos' coming to invade Lagos and other places, and you also have igbos complaining about the amount of 'Northerners' in the east. These things you see are natural reactions to seeing strangers on your home turf.

The British opened its doors to Poland immigrants in January 2004

The British opened its doors to Romania immigrants in January 2008

Theres even a HSMP progam now which is meant to encourage higly skilled immigrants to emmigrate here

There are plenty of immigrants working here from Eastern Europe now. Even on UK Border Force witch i watched on Sky 1 yesterday they said 10'000 foreign students came here to study last year. Some don't even plan to study thet just work and stay here illegally when their visa expires they do arrangee to get their papers.

Britain is a very tolerant society i can't really say that with the present economic situation that Britain really likes immigrants but they are tolerated

"You can visit and even buy stuffs here cheap [b]because the naira is actually stronger against the pound now [/b]but saying you want to live and work here, hmmmn as for me ,I'm only here on a mission studying,trust me I'm out of here to my beloved,beautiful naija as soon as I'm done,  leaving wanabe oyinbo english"

I would like to see it reach at least NGN150 - this is not UK hate, its just so people like me can have more GBP purchasing power.

nigerians and africans only come to uk for the same reason they go to china,iceland,denmark ,germany e.t.c to escape the harsh nigerian economy, the proper way to know if people actualy like coming to britain is to check how many americans relocate here as opposed to brits going over there,

how many canadians actually come here as opposed to brits going there,

how many of citizens of the well to do countries all round the world,with a nice standard of living good economy,proper leadership e.t.c actually migrate to britain, therein lies the answer,

people all round the world irrespective of how good your country is love "the american dream" the americans can claim that people love their country not britain,

nigerians,polish,lithuanians e.t.c do not come here for anything other than to work,make some money and go back to their country, the polish have been criticised about sending their money home to poland and not committing themselves in any way shape or form here,same as other europeans here,so nigerians are not the only exception,

@pennywise

you have been warned,dont make the mistake of re locating here,it ll be like from frying pan to fire as for portuguese and others working here go check the statistics most of them actually return back to their countries i have a few protuguese friends and they mostly come here to work for a few months cause of the value of the pounds and then go back home,same as the germans,french e.t.c more brits relocate to these countries than they actually come here the only europeans who are long term stayers are the east europeans for obvious reasons

Irrespective of how you look at it, UK remains the most sought after destination for migrants from Africa through asia to east europe. Even portuguese are leaving their country to clean toilets in london. If it was so bad, why this alien invasion.No I am not a student neither am I a dependant. I am a Nigerian living happily in Nigeria.

That was why I took the pain to add local to the economic recession.The brits are not feelin the pains the way other peeps are feeling it rt now. Food prices largely the same, relatively strong currency, rising minimum wage, etc. They are at peace.Take an early morning bus or train in london and see how many real brits you will find going for gbri gbri hustle kind of work.They will usually be sleeping.

The brits have had a good economy for quite sometime now and everyone is content. The best time to ask a question like this is when there is inflation and local economic recession.The skin heads openly chasing blacks in eastern europe have no jobs and are hungry. Only a very small fraction of them are actually infested with negrophobia.

if you dont want to listen to my voice then simply google the secret policeman plus government/home office statistics and you will find these answers there,thank GOD unlike some of us black ppl,oyinbos dont lie or make up these kind of figures to favour them/their government

while afro carribeans migrated here in the 40s/50s the indians have been here for more than a century and there have been blacks here for as lond to up untill the time of the romans who settled in the uk, you need to go do some research man

whatever lenny henry is,the fact of the matter is that the amount of black and ethnic minority faces on tv is not proportionate to the population of ethnic minorities, you want prove switch on your tv and scroll up and down ,check the programmes and there you have it

i think you r suffering from the same sickness your new home office minister is suffering from"immigrant o phobia" still go n read the home office figures and you ll realise immigration has actually gone down from previous years,more and more foreigners both short and long stayers are going back to their countries in large numbers you can find keith besy's comment on (ias)website, just like the new home office minister went on the air criticising the rising number of immigrants and pledging to bring it down before he was corrected that its actually the opposite and he should stop talking out of his rear end!

as for the polish,lithuanians e.t.c flooding the united kingdom,surely you cant blame me and my fellow naijas for that will you?did we ask you to grossly underestimate the figures and not make adequate provisions?? or did we push you to join the european union or sign any treaty with them?so stop bleating here and go meet your mp

you r an esu leyin ibeji lol

@elosela

here you go again, well if you cared to notice the use of my words i said minorities/ethnic minoritiesnot just blacks and before i make any comments are you justifying the treatment of policemen/women of ethnic minorities in the met?ill advice you to google the secret policeman before making any further comments, as for going back to nigeria,dont worry in time i will and ill return the favour by giving you my own unsolicited advice,

as far as the ENGLISH who own the united kingdom are concerned,the only diffrence between me and you is the red passport, so that means as long as im legit in this country and you need my money now that your economy is in shambles ill choose when to go, i remember our last discourse when you were going on about how strong the uk economy is and how they dont need anything from foreign students,are self sufficient e.t.c

bet you r eating your words now and using tesco orange juice to swallow it, remember the united states need my money too so accord me the respect of a nigerian helping your economy from going as bad as estonia or yugoslavia or ill switch over to yankee and they ll welcome me with open arms

the british economy is built on the blood and sweat of immigrants. . . they recognise this that is why they dont just completely shut off their borders

immigrants do the jobs they r unwilling to do, and pay taxes to keep their lazy arses on benefits. . . thats why u never find minorities in positions of any real importance

immigrants r a necessary evil for them, that is why they r never really openly racist, they r nice enough to satisfy them so that they never loose their modern slaves
