1/3rd of Londoners are foreign

That's nothing; Last Tuesday 10% of my unit couldn't speak English, or anything at all for that matter. Which was a ****ing blessing.

Last time I was in the smoke, all the drunk beggars at Kings Cross were foreign.I found most of them unable to speak any recognisable form of English........






.....I believe they were Scottish!

I am very surprised, I have traveled through large swathes of London, where I have been unable to see a shop sign in English. I thought it was about 50% of 'Landaners' were foreign to our shores.

And not one sign in 'weegie', discrimination I say.

I went to London last year on a 4 day trip, I was in shock and awe at how many dark skin tones there were, the only white folk who looked half local were Yank tourists trying desperately to make the Guards laugh (to no availe, I believe they were Coldstream Guards).
Another thing I noticed was that when we went into McDonalds, the Arab looking fellas were picking on some poor Chinese guy. Oh, and they were throwing bangers through the doors. This was in Picadilly circus if I remember correct...

So yeah, I reckon when you can hardly spot a white face in the UK, there is something wrong.
Wouldn't go back to London, ever

Are you sure you're not just dyslexic?

Hang on... You were hanging around in Piccadilly Circus and near Buck House and you saw lots of foreigners? Any idea why, hmmm?

If the sight of all those nasty foreigners in London offends you, as does the Arab script on shops, never - ever - take a wrong turn off the M1 and go into Leicester.

I regard London as a hellhole and have avoided it strenuously for two decades, so have little personal experience. To hear some people go on, however, you'd think it was three-quarters rather than a third.

Bless. Missing home are you? Here you go...

We flogged the pad in London yonks ago so now we stay in hotels. All the staff are non Brit (except for the lads on the door in top hats, who appear to get paid a fortune to be Dick Van Dyke out of Mary Poppins). Same with bar, restaurant, museum, art gallery, theater...

Taxi drivers and the lads on the door at top hotels are the only remaining Cockneys in central London.

I'd say more than half of the students in my halls of residence are foreign; most seem to be Chinese or some other variety of South-East Asian. Interestingly, one never sees them except at mealtimes- it's really odd.

So Cockney's are heading the way of the red squirrel?
Are we going to create reserves to ensure their survival?
We have got them. Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs, West Ham, QPR, Milwall etc.

I should be interested to hear from anyone serving in C&C on a Type 42. How much, precisely would it cost to render safe six targets within a 100 mile radius? Do not be shy. I am in funds and ready to proceed.

Wandering around foreign cities, I've been known to resort to "Excuse me, do you speak English?" when I've had to ask directions. Foreign tourists in London have used the same opening line for years.

Of course, if they used a street map instead of a Tube map, they wouldn't need to ask and would avoid the response "Buggered if I know."

I wonder how many foreigners simply didn't fill in the census form, and/or are not registered for council tax purposes.

I recall one fraud investigation (Wembley area) where we identified 32 people living at properties listed as having just seven residents.....
