The comments on that article are odd (and horrible, of course). It's like they say 'you get called a racist if you talk about this!!!!!' and then say 'there's one reason they all left, but we can't talk about it!!!!'... which sounds as though they suggest everyone leaving actually has a problem with foreigners, or that only foreigners commit crimes. Which has racist implications, obviously. The discussion about immigration in this country is shit partly because a lot of people argue like fucking retards. |
Even ignoring the batshit/terminally furious, London is a special case really - it's a global city. It's also an interesting article - looking at the economics of it all. There's no doubt been a flattening of 'native' White working class culture in London, and that's a thing to be considered like any other cultural/historical trend. But it's also not something to mourn unreservedly, myopically, hypocritically et al, with the evil foreigner as the only cause.
