[color=#800080;]Different languages spoke in public! [/color]I don't reckonise my country any more! What you think to this issue?
Anyways I feel like going back to the original post and actually addressing the issue without labeling him, like most of you did before we ever got into any serious debate here.
Red point - Mmm maybe, but generally people tend to notice what they want to notice, and it would also depend on who you consider white working class. Would also be a lot of white working class people I would imagine who possibly could have different opinions than this, here in Canada I like in a fairy rural area which people fly in and out of camps to work in mines/oil sands or work at plants I find there to be a wide diversity of opinions even amongst similar groups.
Orange point - I don't follow the British media or punditry so I don't know where this idea comes from, I certainly don't have that opinion about British people, although I constantly read headlines in the Canadian and American press about lazy teenagers, and lazy natives. These usually come from people with entrenched interests and are paid extravagant amounts to forward someones agenda in a paper. Doesn't mean it is true though, I ignore such silly commentary or generally fight back. In fact, politicians and writers tend to be less hard working than the people they claim are lazy.
Yellow point - Yes, but that has more to do with corrupt politicians who refuse to reform immigration laws, and in fact legal immigrants aren't as a rule paid any less than native borns, it is those pesky temporary foreign workers (TFWs)who can be paid less. This is seriously unacceptable but in reality TFW's at least in my experience here in North America has actually been the result of the neoliberal right than the left. In Canada at least the NDP which is a heavy left leaning, union party is hell bent against these kinds of people flooding our labour market. And I totally agree with them, not only is it unfair to us, but it is bad for the nation as a whole as these TFW's tend to send money back to their home countries without reinvesting in our economy by consuming goods here which means we are bleeding money out. However, white people actually believe it or not still have an advantage over landed immigrants, as we generally have better language and communication skills, as well as familiar cultural behaviors, although it is how we market ourselves and present ourselves as competent that is more important, at least in my experience, but I find a lot of my generation are really dumb, which means they will have immigrants put in before them. Another think I would quickly like to note is that I totally disagree with the concept of affirmative action, work should be based on merit above all out and not things that have no relevance to the job...
Light green point - I would be careful about labeling Tony Blair as the left, most of the left does not readily accept Tony Blair or subscribe to his nonsense ideology. I also don't know where you are getting the idea that anyone is feeling guilty of past evils, I don't know if this inherent in the British press, but yet again these are usually delusional writers sprouting opinions that have no real merit upon anything.
Dark green point - Mmmm, that's a bit of a hard one. Reality is there will always be people different than you even if they are all white and British, and Christian, and whatever else their will still be diversity. Might want to accept this sooner than later, just because you don't agree with a person does not mean there is any reason that they do not have rights as well. The concept of freedom is to allow people to live in a diverse amount of ways without feeling threatened.
Cyan point - No one, most people don't care about Syria. There are those that do, but statistics suggest they are in the minority.
Dark blue point - Nah, you would really have no difference in jobs, jobs are there to make money, if you have less people you also have less consumers, that means they support less variety of business, and therefore less variety of jobs, meaning same amount of jobs. Only way really in the current world to create jobs is to develop a niche that people want to pay you for and the bigger the pool of people the more potential consumers. Whether you like their culture or agree with them or not...
Magenta point - Egads! Different languages what an atrocity, you an England are quite sheltered from real language wars such as we have here in Eastern Canada between English and French, in reality langues are quite necessary as the other way to grow an economy in England, selling stuff to other people (which creates jobs) in other countries requires you to speak that person's language... people will sell to you in your language, but they will only buy in theirs... thus you have more people which helps facilitate trade with more people, allowing you to make the products that they can sell to others creating more jobs.
Hope this sums up my opinion of the situation to you.
