I wasn’t expecting an answer anyway.

One man’s right wing dictatorship is another man’s pseudo-communist heaven.

Far right.

centre right has centre in it.

But the Mon in Holland is far right. He wants to ban a religion he doesn’t like.

It may be that the Dutch Muslim population will accept that and idyllic life follows for the whole country.

My spidey senses tell me otherwise.

It's going well...

Wasn't it just one train he made run on time and it was the one that took him to meet Hitler or summat 

Let’s not take his little victory away from him shall we?

Im familiar with the trains running on time trope, it was used in the manner of the myth itself.

Sublety isn’t everyone’s strong point 😎

You're getting him mixed up with Mussolini there, Spider. Easy mistake to make, I suppose. Just for clarity, Hitler was the one with the dodgy moustache and comb over combo. Mussolini was the one with the baldy head and jutting jawline.

And, before anyone dives in, Benito didn't actually improve the performance of Italian railways. It's an oft-quoted urban myth. 👍

I thought it was a joke about the trains that went to concentration camps

The top 3 groups of immigrants, presided over by Sunak, let us not forget

Students - massive contributor to finances

Care sector workers - lets fuck them off, but net contributors anyway

Refugees from Ukraine and HK - anybody want to fuck em off?

Next 'highly skilled workers'

Are the Hong Kong lot considered refugees? 

Well I guess by the definition of the word yes but from my experience they aren't seeking asylum or living in hotels etc etc 

There's loads turned up on South Manchester and Cheshire, and you do notice them when out and about particularly at the supermarket or down the park / out walking 

But they're all buying up properly and coming over here to move into homes they've already bought 

Plenty are buying without viewing, friend of mine sold their house to someone was in HK, they sent a mate round to view it and an hour later paid asking price 

They certainly aren't asking to be put up by us

Seems that you and Wahid would prefer the Merkel strategy? Throw the doors open?

It is impossible to legislate for fucking stupidity. Good luck to those who will continue your bloodline. They will surely need it.

25% of student visas are granted to dependents, with some students arriving not just with their parents but their grandparents, and 48% of non-EU work visas are granted to dependents

Migrants from Pakistan and Bangladesh, in particular, are quite significantly more likely to be claiming disability benefit and be unemployed as well

There are huge numbers of people emigrating to this country who are economically inactive

When did it look like they were getting their act together??😳😳😳

Purely from that graph there was a sharp drop before that massive spike 

Thinking about it

That was COVID wasn't it

We have a specific scheme with HK so they can apply for a visa and get entry, They are including in the big number, as you say they are not seeking asylum, they are allowed to come here and live as we used to 'own' HK.

There is a scheme for folk from Ukraine too.

It’s almost like our colonial past is working against us at times.

Which is weird, because loads of blokes with Union Jack shirts just love getting all dewy eyed and singing songs about how Britain will never never never be slaves.

A slight tangent, but apparently the Chinese never really expected us to give Hong Kong back in 1997 and were shocked we actually did
