Ok, Every country has people leaving, and people coming. Not everyone is happy with his or her country regardless of where they are in the world; this is not something unique to England or the UK.
But what is clear is that large numbers of native-born English are leaving or wanting to leave the UK and it is much larger then ever before and whilst I could not find proper statistics it’s suppose to be in the 100,000’s every year. And much higher than most western nations.
So why are people leaving? It is rather depressing when you think about it; I’m sometimes left thinking I’m going to be the last one left. I was watching some TV show on BBC a while ago who said that 25% of all people who leave England return within 2 years, but regardless of how many realise what a mistake they made the fact they leave says something.
I mean where did it go wrong? Certainly the events of the last 13 years have some bearing on it, though the rot goes back much further. Multiculturalism, the supposed solution of tolerance and equality has failed, though if I am brutally honest, fuck multiculturalism. Differences do not unite us, by their very definition they can’t.
How on earth can we feel united or a part of a group of people when we live amongst others who are so different to us and wont integrate with us as there is no compulsion to do so, and the state say it’s ok for them to do live just as they like because it’s their culture. Though that doesn’t seem to stop anyone having a go at my culture, seems like that’s a cultural thing too. Though this isn’t really a bash at multiculturalism, it just seems that even the basic building blocks of how our society works are failing and set to fail and multiculturalism is part and parcel of that failing.
If we want to feel as a nation or a part of a group we need something that unites us as group or nation, multiculturalism doesn’t do that, so its no wonder nobody feels that England has no common identity because the truth is it doesn’t anymore as only the English weren’t permitted to be anything other than British in the eyes of the UK state, and so there is little that unites us anymore as a homogeneous group, it’s just not allowed. I mean look at Canada and America, they handle immigration much better than the UK though mostly in England.
Because they have forced their national identity on people coming into those countries and as such they all have something in common, which is the national identity. We don’t seem to do that in England out of fear of being called racist and an adherence by the state and its minions to failed doctrines where they’ll fine someone who burns a poppy in public on armistice day £50 and yet will send someone to prison for 70 days for burning the idiots bible Koran
When I sit down and list what is wrong with this country; I come up with something like this:
Too many people, the division of the classes, high cost of living, working everyday just to chase the bills, the M25, no sense of wellbeing, feeling like an outsider in your own country, generally miserable people, driving anywhere, a government that finds a new way to grind you down everyday, the constant bad news, the ‘English Pub’ no longer exists, somewhere safe for my kids to grow up, knowing that however hard you try – it will always be taken off you by politicians, the lack of identity for the country we grew up in that has somehow slipped away, stamp duty, death duties, red-tape, people that win the lottery and don’t do anything with it, celebrity fixated media, reality tv shows, road rage, air rage, trolley rage, price of fuel, antagonistic Muslim clerics, antagonistic Muslims, spiralling crime, speed cameras for profit, congestion charges, the price of train travel, the lack of manners or courtesy, the collapse of our pension funds, untouchable criminals aged 6 to 15, public transport, the general state of politics all being in the middle ground, chavs, state spongers, corrupt politicians, loss of civil liberties, the EU, I could go on, and on, and on.
These are not all views I hold by the way, these are just reasons that people all seem to complain about. But when you look at that list, it does seem very overwhelming and how on earth would you even go around fixing it? Just through simply voting how on earth could one hope to even be able to fix half of those? It seems every half-arsed attempt to fix these problems falls flat on its face, our politicians have successfully bound their hands with EU legislation. And it’s no wonder then when you think about it why people are……..well jumping ship, though the collapse of the cheaper southern EU states might well leave them wondering why they bothered, still there are always other countries to jump ship too.
