Have You Noticed?


This yeye British government...they are such two-faced cowards. Haven't you noticed that when they want to do something bad they start with something good first. Anyway let me break it down for you. First it was global warming. Do you remember how they started? They started by encouraging people to go green cos it's ethical to be kind to the environment. They tried to convince people that they are doing it to safe-guard the environment for the future generation and bladibla...Then the rhetoric changed to green tax? Green tax? What da heck does that mean? They added £10 to short haul flights and £20 to long hauls. They increased road tax on gaz guzzlers and home information pack was introduced for 4-bedroom homes, then now to 3 bedrooms and its gonna spread to all homes before the end of the year. People are now penalised for not being 'mindful' of the environment. All of these measures generating millions if not billions of pounds in revenue for the government. And what do they use it for? To house single mothers who deliberately fall out of school to get pregnant (issue for another day).

What is the object of my rants today...immigration. You guys will be like I've come again but yes I will talk...the headlines on British newspapers today is IMMIGRATION DOES NOT BRING ANY BENEFIT TO BRITAIN. I am sure I dont need to start dissecting how wrong that headline is. My issue is not whether immigration has been beneficial to Britain or not, my issue is that the British government is the most spineless, lip-service govt that I know. What will be so wrong in them admitting that immigration has been beneficial to our country but we were too stupid to know when to stop. I am in immigrant in Britain but even I look around me and see how immigration is crippling the same economy it helped build because the British government were either too stupid or too greedy to do something about it. Now that they're ready to do something about it they feel smearing the hardworking immigrants who have worked to put this country on the financial power map is the right way to go about it. For the shallow minded people that make up a third of the indigenous British people, what they'll do now is regard immigrants with a scornful and contemptuous look on their faces without knowing the full facts. People who don't live in this country don't have a good idea how unenlightened indigenous British people are. A large chunk of the them dont have minds of their own and its the Sun newspaper who makes up their mind for them (chei...have you seen those page 3 girls?).

Anyways back to business. I guess the only good things about this recent development is that the Nigerians who felt this was home before can now start to return home to do something better. Hopefully we can fix Nija's problems together and live a better life out there cos trust me this place is turning very wack! And those who are outside the gate peeking in, spending all their hard earned money all in the name of coming to the UK may have a re-think. British economy is sinking and they want to blame it on the immigrants who built their country for them...I siddon look.

This place is a mess....the whole thing went apart when the poles moved in...the whole immigration overhaul is not even aimed at Nigerians...have you noticed whe they talk about immigration they mention the poles, the chinese (dee wee dee) and the asians...No one gives a f**k about the Nigerians anymore...besides we have been really quiet...

Yes...oh...On BBC news tonight na so so Latvian and Polish dem dey show...I dont mean to be racist or wotever but those pple can really be a nuisance. However what beats me is how some of them are able to buy homes just as they are moving into the country. The Polish family that bought the house beside ours last year drove an Audi A6 when they moved in...now the guy just bought a 57 reg Toareg...this comes after turning the house into a palace. If they had that much money in the country, what more are they coming to do here?

ollay one more thing, the Poles are very very very hardworking, especially in the building/construction industry and they cost less than british counterpart and do a better skilled job so allow them to acquire the assets as they deserve it[their situation is similar to mexicans builders in yankee]
