    Migration Crises in the United Kingdom

    GB a sick man of Europe. With out migration from Muslim countries, British society and economy would bleed to death. Thousands of Muslim doctors and nurses are working for NHS and without them NHS would bleed to death. In my opinion, there would be no end to immigration. Fattest in Europe, Most drunk, Least active, Least productive (in work), Shortest stay in maternity wards, 70% of European card debt, Highest teen pregnancy, Worst literacy and math results, Highest domestic abuse, Highest abortion rate, Greatest inequality, Highest rents, UK school leavers 'the worst in Europe for essential skills'. These are the reason that there will never be an end to immigration.

    DAVID CAMERON faced calls to apologise after sparking a row with Labour MPs by branding refugees camped out in Calais a “bunch of migrants”. PM speaks for the majority of Brits. The common Brit does not want to see even a single immigrant but without constant flow of immigrants, British society and economy would bleed to death.

    The people who make me the most ill are the people who decry immigration, then employ immigrant cleaners on **** wages. Yes, it's much like the Republicans in the US, who stoke hostility against Latino migrants, while all the time depending on them as nannies, cleaners and gardeners. Well of course, they will support any policy that will strengthen their own position whilst damaging the rights of indigenous people and any politician wanting to retain British Values and Liberal values will fall by the wayside. So, the banker from Germany the cleaner from Colombia who cleans his/her office will all vote to strengthen their 'own' position, because of course their interests precisely coincide. Its almost as if you think they are all the same. And what on earth are 'British values"? If you are talking about the kind of **** spouted by UKIP and the Tories.

    It's easy to turn up in an area, see a lack of white faces, and decide its evidence of the white population being hounded out if Britain. The truth is a lot of the time people in white working class areas of London have done well out of house prices and moved to the country, the seaside or a nicer suburb. Immigrants from Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa have simply settled in the depopulated areas with cheap housing in urban areas - all too often doing the jobs locals don't want to do - but vast swathes of the country remain 99.9 per cent white and British. All too often black people get the blame because of visibility - when the reality is black people make about 3 per cent of the country and come from countries with centuries-old ties to Britain, with Britain doing very well out of the arrangement thank you. Its EU migrants who really put the pressure on services, but the government doesn't mind them because they look white and can blend in once their accents change. English did invade other countries and did change their cultures and identity! I am an immigrant and I do not want to integrate. The culture here is bad. I do not want my child growing up in such a culture.
    Migration could be a solution to economic problems. Migrants are “part of the solution, not the problems”. Migrants provide vital skills to receiver countries with a labour shortage and an often-ageing population and send home vast amount of remittances to their countries. At last British government seems ready to argue the case for immigration rather than treating it as a threat to be resisted. The Government says we need high levels of immigration to do the work that a booming economy has created. The Government believes that more young migrant workers because the native population is not growing fast enough. Its position is that there is no obvious upper limit to the number of settlers allowed in. Immigrants are the most enterprising, the most energetic and the most useful members of the British society.



    Foreign born workers make a “disproportionate” contribution to the economy, paying £2.5 billion more in tax each year than they take out in services. British economy depended on attracting overseas workers. Foreign workers represented 8% of the population but generated 10% of the gross domestic products. They made a net contribution to the exchequer. No modern, successful country can afford to adopt an anti-immigration policy. It is all our interests to harness the innovation, skills and productivity new migrants can bring.


    The only "good" migration Britain had for the last 20-30 years are Northern Eastern Europeans and other old EU migrants. Just imagine if there were no Asians or Africans living in Britain. Would you complain much?I don't think so. Areas that are over 50% ethic minority only become so when the white scared cat English run away because you have a non white as a neighbor. White English people CAUSED the lack of integration in Britain. Nobody else. We should wear what we want who are we to judge. Freedom of dress. if a women wants to wear a burka she should be aloud each to there own. peace not hate!! most of the immigrants are now British citizens, they have jobs, they pay their taxes, they live amongst us in peace, they bring an added dimension to our culture. What they have, which seems to frighten us, is a devotion to their family and their religion, a higher work ethic and an eye for an opportunity to better themselves through their own efforts. Live with it, it`s too late to worry about it!! Let us embrace people of all cultures , accept we live in a multicultural society and create a society based on mutual tolerance and help for the poor and struggling. We must move away from this nasty devise rhetoric . Let's have similar publicity for views such as those of the Bishop of Dudley that this issue is being blown out of all proportion.


    The remarkable linguistic diversity of the UK, reflecting our complex history, includes speakers of the indigenous and also of the languages of our main Asian, European and Afro-Caribbean communities as well as hundreds of small groups of speakers of other languages. Yet the multilingual talents of UK citizens are under-recognised, under-used and all too often viewed with suspicion. Our aims must be to recognise the opportunities offered by this multilingual wealth, ensure that talent is nurtured in future generations and meet the linguistic and cultural needs of individuals and communities.



    Amongst all the immigrants’ communities in British Isles, Muslim community has a distinctive cultural and linguistic pattern. The priority for the Muslim community is the preservation and transmitting of their cultural heritage and languages. Majority of British Muslims are from the Indian sub-continent. Their children need to learn Arabic as a religious language to recite and understand the Holy Quran and at the same time they must preserve Urdu and other community languages to keep in touch with their cultural roots and enjoy the beauty of their literature and poetry. They need to be well versed in Standard English to follow the National Curriculum and to go for higher studies and research to serve humanity.



    There are hundreds of state and church schools where Muslim children are in majority. In my opinion, all such schools may be opted out as Muslim Academies.
