A quick search of threads indicates discussion of politics and current affairs are very controlled I will float this as a thread Is London lost. In my area a growing number of immigrants are taking over. I have more hair dressers in my area catering for shall I say a niche customer base than would seem to be necessary. Just how many hairdressers for niche customers can one very small area support. I myself have to travel out of the area to a long established Italian barber to receive the kind of service and feeling of ease I require. The old Conservative Club is being refurbished for some kind of ethnic group maybe Turkish maybe a music/cultural school for other groupings of incomers now massing in London. This fine city has been lost to the traditions and people who once lived here. The gang culture is ever present and the police station is closed locally. The plastic police presence known as community officers less than useless when given evidence of drug dealing locally. One wonders what the politicians who represent the area are doing until you see who they are. London is lost unless all good people who want to see the way of life that existed in areas such as mine realise that continually switching between the main parties achieves nothing if they are the same. We may not be a recently militarily defeated nation, however this matters not if the nation is replaced by others. That in my mind is a defeat by other methods.
