I don't think it's a dead topic. There have been protests recently all over the country about employing Italian and Polish nationals on a construction project in Lincolnshire. Slightly off the thread, I know, but it did remind me of the Winter of Discontent. I think there's going to be more protets, over other points of dispute.The_Seagull said:Probably not, but nobody in the UK want's to so it's a dead topic really.
edited to add.
Though I do see the irony of me posting on a dead topic though.

We like to have a moan about stuff but no-one (myself included) is willing to put anything on the line to defend ourselves.
BUT, I think you'll find,historicaly, we take it on the chin.

What is it that makes you imagine that our country was ever run by "our" elected government.exrnmedic said:The warning signs are there and the current government are pushing us closer and closer to civil war. What has Europe done for us apart from increase unemployment, degrade our high British standards and permit illegal immigrants to flood our country?
The EU is fine for third world countries such as Poland and Romania but for the British Empire to be brought to it's knees by rules which actively seek to destroy our economy is disgusting. The EU have admitted that their aims are to allow free trade for 'the EU' irrespective of the effect it has on the economy's of the member states.
Our country is run by Brussels and not our elected Government. EU laws are degrading our country more and more each day and its costs the British tax payers millions of pounds per DAY to belong to the EU. It does nothing for us, offers nothing to our economy and simply lowers our standards in line with other EU countries rather than bring them up to our standards.
One simply needs to review 'Jamie saves our bacon' to see the harm that the EU has done to our pig farming industry. Not just pigs, companies seek to import goods from EU countries who do not comply with our high standards who as such are able to produce for less. This takes business away from BRITISH businesses when their customers seek to purchase from the EU instead.
When illegal immigrants who are IN THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY have more rights than British citizens this angers the population. When people come here illegally and the murder only to be sent home without punishment as it would be "against their human rights" this pushes the country one step closer to civil war.
Civil war WILL follow when people simply have enough of the disgrace that we call Government.
