    Let me sort that headline for the hard of understanding
    Britain = eng/wales
    Great Britain = eng/wales & Scotland
    UK = eng/wales Scotland & N Ireland
    ENGLAND is becoming more divided as the country grows more diverse.

      I am amazed that Ireland is divided/separated by a closely related
      religions and everyone thinks Muslims are good for their country! If the
      Anglican/Protestants and Catholics can’t find common ground what idiot
      thinks Muslims will fare better!

      English, Welsh, Irish and Scott hates each other. All of them hate

    Multiculturalism is a failed experiment, they hate our country and our

    The guy at the end is a bit optimistic imo. 15-20 years? No chance. The
    divisions will grow and eventually come to a head.

    Asians are racist…….they just don’t want to integrate and as that
    teenager implied….they would use force against the people that welcomed
    then into our Christian country/continent

      damian ribar If Asian people were vandalising cars and disrupting a white
      neighbourhood, I’m pretty damn sure white people would use force as well 😑

    White lefties and liberals scream xenophobia but why aren’t they living in
    those black and Asian dominated areas? Where are they? More likely to see
    Bigfoot in Clapham park than that

      A Muslim is a citizen of this tiny global village. The whole world belongs
      to Muslims.

    One doesn’t see much diversity in the upper class English culture,
    parliament, or the House of Lords.

    In group preference is normal in humans in general, not just white folks.
    People segregate themselves for F sakes!
