    So why don't we deport all binmen? They're obviously doing no good here, just taking up space and wasting our time and resources, precious resources that could be better spent on doctors!

    Everybody contributes to society, socially, culturally and financially. I love multi-cultural society, I think it's excellent. As the cliche says, great things happend when we work together, and for me the melding of cultures produces some of the most exciting artefacts like music, art and food. This country would be a lot more boring without immigrants.

    yes immigration as a whole, but what you will find it that the majority of immigrants coming in ARE muslims, and im sorry to say but the more muslims there are, the more conflicts/problems there are going to be. look in the paper, you dont have to be a genius to see that almost every single negative issue involves muslims or islam in one way or another.

    Good point, it is elitist. But as I see it, because the policy doesn't force new born British babies to grow up to be doctors too then it is racist because it only applies to foreigners. Discrimination based on race; that's racism isn't it?

    P.S.: sorry for the threadjack folks, we've kind-of wandered from the subject of the BNP here. I'll shut my big mouth now :whistle2:

    Granted, but the point i'm trying to make is that if you want to be part of a society you should be willing and able to contribute to that society and not just feed off it.

    And my bin men are **** by the way.... :banghead: :salute:

    Nope thats descriimination based on foreigners skills. Race is the geological linked colour of your skin and genetic makeup, i.e. black (west indies, Africa etc), white ( northern european, american), yellow (chinese, japan etc) brown (indian, middle east) the list could go on

    Given the fact that the language barrier could very easily lead to someones death I dont think its worth it.

    How can you possibly have a hope of accurately commnicating something to a GP who speaks broken English ?

    Oh i see silver 75 is really getting his knickers in a twist, must be a liberal civil servant or similar,
    Well said jpo i agree with much of what you say,
    I dont think i would actually vote bnp, but i must say that over recent years i have started to listen to what they say, i would guess that if one of the two political parties we have i.e labour or conservative adopted some of the bnp policies then a huge amount of people would vote for them in a flash, its just the possibility of being labeled a facist etc that would put most people off.
    the bnp seem to be gaining a vast amount of interest at the moment and i can understand why, most ethnic groups have lived here peacefully and just got on with there lives, particularly the guys that wear the turbans who are always very courteous and are a credit to this nation, its just those damn muslims,(which is the reason people are looking at the bnp), they just seem to want to stir up the hornets nest and cause major problems, i know i am tarring them all with the same brush but so does everyone else.

    here comes the post deletion part, get rid of the muslims just send them back or whatever to their natural parts of the world and i bet the country would be a whole lot better.

    lets see if as.net does promote freedom of speech

    Places like New Zealand and Australia work on a points system. You get x points for qualifications, x points for age, x points for money etc. If they have a plumber shortage, plumbers get x bonus points. You then need a total number of points to qualify for admission. You're then on "probation", and if you find work and can hold down a job, and you behave yourself for x number of months, they let you stay. If not, you get deported.

    It's a personal view that not all will agree with (possibly an understatement!)...but it's not aimed at any particular user so I see no need to delete it.
    This is a democracy where everyone is entitled to their view.

    If everyone can keep their points as well written there will be no need to moderate.

    OK......... You make my point very well,,, so what does racism mean to YOU??? You've said you consider Nick Griffin and by association the BNP to be 'racist'. But unless you can offer a definition of 'Racist' that everyone can agree on the term becomes meaningless.....


    Sorry, you're entirely wrong on that count. Facist is a label given to the BNP by those who really are fascists,,,, like the somewhat perversely named UAF!!

    You misunderstand me,, I do beleive a 'bit' of diversity is indeed 'enriching'! But what we have now is not diversity, but 'displacement', if you live or work in London you'll know what I mean............ Is it Tower Hamlets that is now 98% Bangladeshi?? Where's the diversity in that??

    PS I think Hip-hop and Garage are Sh!te!:)


    Yes it is............ It's something called controlled immigration (as in the opposite to what we've got at the moment), and it's not 'racism', it's 'realism'!!


    Phew............!!! That was hard work for me,,,, I think I'll stick to me one liners for a bit!!:)

    think you mean Sikhs. yes your right we (sikhs and hindus, well indians basically) have intergrated into this country very well, causing no major problems. thats becuase of worth ethic. something a lot of muslims seem not to have.

    You cant really tar everyone with the same brush, for every muslim that commits a crime and makes the news theres probably a thousand that keep their heads down and just want to get on with life. The controls for getting into this country are a joke and should be tightened and so should the asylum laws that go back to our colonial past and werent designed for the current situation. It doesnt help that a lot of illegal immigrants arent allowed to work and have no way of sustaining themselves when they get here.

    As far as the BNP goes, they gear their policies to an ever growing xenophobic public playing on peoples fears, some of their stuff makes sense while some of it is bonkers.

    One thing is for sure, Enoch Powell is laughing in his grave right now.

    I think one of the main causes of intolerance is that we are forever being told we (race religions etc) are equals.

    The fact is we are not equals , we all have different views ethics morals etc etc that make us different.

    If people started accepting this then I think we would all get along alot better.

    Agree with JPO, immigration really needs to be controlled in this country, we should stop letting in every single person who wants to come here. regardless of what race or religion they are.

    sorry guys but isn't most of this talk about immigration trying to close the gate after the horse has bolted?,

    as the once greatest country in the world (in power not just current opinion) we have long been a multi-cultural country and great because of it.

    come on unless any of you are ginger with freckles (gingerist I expect but pretty close to the true Brit) then you are not probably therefore a natural resident/native of this island.

    I think the only accurate points here relate to integration, IMO that is where we are falling down in this country, separation and isolation of communities breeds mistrust and suspicion and causes much of the scare mongering by the extremists on all sides.

    When we all (Christian, Jew, Muslim, Seikh, Hindu et al.) should be trying to promote tolerance and understanding of frankly often incompatible faiths.

    not sure who said it here but for me also the current media attitude and much here is the same slippery slope that led the national socialist party to power in Germany in 36, honestly guys that is not the answer.

    but hey, at least we might finally be making decent cars here in 60 years!!!

    It's just so depressing. With comments like 'but what you will find it that the majority of immigrants coming in ARE muslims', I wonder if some of these members should be allowed out on their own. Never mind behind the wheel of a car.

    Just out of interest, how many countries in the world have what most people would classify a 'far-right' government (I think most people would agree the BNP could be called far-right?).

    I can give an easy example of where it all went wrong. Hitler was elected on the back of similar types of policies, and it all spiralled on from there. Now in no way am I comparing the BNP to Nazi Germany (I don't know enough about them to do that), but it is an example from history of what could happen. That why I'm asking for examples of present day far-right democracies. Obviously in any country the individual policies differ, but it does give some ability to compare?

    Well in europe there's Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland, who all have strong far-right government influences with each government having a fair few seats taken by far-right political parties.

    My view on this whole thing:

    1) Adopt a similar immigration policy to Australia where people with needed skills are given priority and attaining a certain number of 'points' allows you in

    2) Having said that, we do need cheap labour in the UK to do the jobs that some people on benefits don't want to do as the difference that they would earn from doing such jobs is not 'enough' to make it worthwhile

    3) The Geneva Convention will not allow us to turn away asylum seekers, however more should be done to fish out the genuine from the blaggers

    4) Muslims are a minority in this country (I think about 4 million), representing about 2-3% of the population. According to the news this morning, there are about 1,500 known plotters (or about 0.04%) who would like to detonate bombs or whatever. Not all Muslims are bad, and many have integrated well. However, I agree that the Muslim community as a whole needs to do more to expose radicalism, rather than the 'head in the sand' routine that appears to be going on at the moment

    5) Muslims in general get a bad press. How many items on the news or in the papers relate to the threat from Muslim extremists? Unfortunately, this situation is unlikely to change as long as moderate Muslims are exposed to radicalisation in Mosques around the country and the distorted views of what is essentially a peaceful religion is preached by extremists. Muslims need to police their own in this respect.

    6) The BNP is receiving more support from society because society is incapable of having open, honest and frank discussions with itself over fundamental issues which will affect its future. There is a lot of mis-construed, mis-understood half truths on this particular post and this is representative of society at large.

    7) I'm not claiming to know everything, but thought I'd share my considered opinions with you.

    For the record, I'm white, non-religious and as British as the next man. Here ends the lecture :blahblah1:

    OK, but not really my question. Are there some examples of countries that are controlled by a far-right government?

    I don't think dictatorships are a fair comparison though.

    Don't really agree with this points thing, for a start how much red tape and admin work would there be to set it up? how would you judge whos got what skills? how would you make sure someone isn't lying about their skills? are we going to make every single person demonstrate them? i just don't think its possible. and secondly, lets say we did do this, then what about all the genuine people who come here initially with no skills but once here have the opportunity (and take it) to learn a skill and work?

    i think a very basic regulation such as that you must have worked and payed taxes/ni for at least 3 years before you can claim ANY sort of benefit would do the job (and this should apply to everyone, not just immigrants/foreigners), it would stop people coming here just to claim of benefits and not work.

    anyway back to the original point, a lot of the BNP policies makes sense (and im indian), but at the end of it all, what it comes down to is that the BNP want an England with no foreigners wotsoever, it says somewhere in their policies that they will give all foreigners X amount of time to leave this country. **** that, i think as people have mentioned they are just trying to win over votes. in reality i don't know how on earth they would manage to get rid of god knows how many foreigners, and i don't think they could, even by force as there are too many.

    There's a film called "children of men" that came out a bit ago. Very interesting viewing, with a slant of what the UK may be like under a BNP "get rid of all foreigners" type rule.

    Didn't look very nice.

    I Think we all have to be carefull we don't go to extremes. That's what tars certain organizations and faiths with comments we've already seen.

    How do you define 'foreigner' anyway???

    Someone could have a skin colour other than white but still have been born in the UK so are in fact British so you'd have a pretty difficult job chucking people out!

    No, you're entirely wrong there Pimp me old mukka! (not that it's unusual for you to be wrong ehh....??:laugh: )

    The BNP no longer have a policy of forced repatriation, and haven't for some time, (that was a major problem I had with their policy when it was) the current policy is in my opinion quite equitable.
