TONY PARSON writes in THE SUN newspaper: WHEN I see an ice cream van run by a woman in a full-veil, full-body burka, I no longer recognise the country I grew up in. Can this really be England in the 21st century? It looks like a scene from Pakistan or Saudi Arabia. It looks like the Dark Ages in some fundamentalist state in the Middle East. But this is Dewsbury, Yorkshire, in the summer of 2015. In the bright summer sunshine, a little boy approaches one of the most evocative symbols of the season. The name on the side of the van, Rossi’s ice cream, will ring a ding-dong bell in a million hearts who remember the name from their childhood. But I can’t look upon this image with anything but despair. This is where it leads to — our mindless, unthinking tolerance for any and every culture that chose to migrate here. This is where it leads to — our very British reluctance to appear racist, or judgmental or xenophobic. Ghettos have been built on British tolerance. There are ghettos in Yorkshire, Birmingham and leafy High Wycombe. There are ghettos in East London where nobody thinks it remarkable that the wife of the President of the United States can tour a school where almost every girl is wearing the hijab headdress. Everyone dressing the same is NOT diversity. It’s a ghetto. That is the country we have created. We have invited millions in, given them British passports, lavished them with British benefits, made them recipients of British freedoms that our fathers and grandfathers fought and died for. And too often we are rewarded for our kindness with hatred. It is no coincidence that the ice cream lady in a burka was flogging her creamy wares in one of the hotbeds of Islamic madness. It is almost exactly ten years since 7/7 and the mass slaughter on London transport by four suicide bombers. That atrocity was planned from the Dewsbury home of ringleader Mohammad Sidique Khan. And Dewsbury was also the home of wicked Talha Asmal, Britain’s youngest suicide bomber, who ran off to join Islamic State and detonated a car full of explosives. “A sweet-natured, friendly kid,” says the former Labour MP Shahid Malik — a spectacularly insensitive thing to say about someone who has just committed a terrorist act of mass murder. But that is how isolated sections of the Muslim community have become. That is how deluded, self-pitying and plain wrong they consistently get it. At 17, Talha Asmal was old enough to know EXACTLY what he was getting into with the bearded butchers of Islamic State. What the hell is wrong with Dewsbury, a town of 60,000 souls that has inflicted such a mountain of misery on this country and the world? And what is wrong with US that we have allowed these wretched, hateful ghettos to thrive in our own country?
We should not be surprised that three Muslim women in what are described as “very unhappy arranged marriages” choose to take their nine innocent children to live under the fanatical rule of Islamic State.Because we have not insisted on integration from the people who have come here. We have not asked for loyalty. We have not even asked for a little bit of bloody gratitude. Now we reap the whirlwind of all our kind-hearted British tolerance. Now we see we have given entire English towns and city neighbourhoods away to people who have not the slightest inclination to integrate with the rest of us. In one area of Dewsbury, 97 per cent of the population is Muslim. Ninety seven per cent! Does that statistic astound you? It astounds me. David Cameron says that UK Muslims need to do more in the fight on terror. No, Prime Minister, UK Muslims who are totally separated from the rest of British life need to decide if they really want to be a part of this country. Or not. Britain is a wonderful nation. We are ALL lucky to be living here. But ghettos are an affront to everything the British love and they have absolutely no place in British life....

ichkeria...well said at 17:25. And all this debate about who was in power and when is just plain daft. The Windrush sailed here because Britain needed workers. This is an extract from the Windrush Generation

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_African-Caribbean_people#The_.22Windrush_generation.22

"There was plenty of work in post-war Britain and industries such as British Rail, the National Health Service and public transport recruited almost exclusively from Jamaica and Barbados. Though Afro-Caribbean people were encouraged to journey to Britain via immigration campaigns created by successive British governments, many new arrivals were to endure prejudice, intolerance and extreme racism from sectors of White British society"

"prejudice, intolerance and extreme racism" ...I wonder what happened to all that ?

"the biggest driver for migration from south asia was not encouragement from this or that particular political party, but the massive upheaval that followed the partition of india after independence in 1947. "

errr no it wasnt ,it basically started after Idi amin decided he wanted the asians out of uganda in 72, and from that day on theyve never stopped coming here.
Once word got out about the benefits, housing etc etc etc , they flooded in from India, Pakistan etc etc, they lied and scammed to bring relatives, friends, anybody they could, there was no way of checking if the "relatives" really were that in a lot of cases.
Thats why we see our country flooded with them, and they also bred like long tailed sharp toothed rodents( thats for for those that like to be offended).
And roughly the same time the news got round to africa, and the same, theyve been flooding in here and scamming us for all theyre worth and still are...
when did uganda move from east africa, baz?

Our Ernie, "Mrs Entwhistle's Little Lad", was a character created for Knock-Out by C. E. Holt in 1939. The strip was set in Wigan and inspired by Albert Ramsbottom, the naughty boy of Stanley Holloway's monologues. After getting up to mischief, Ernie would return home with the catchphrase "What's for tea, Ma?", to which his Pa would reply "Daft, I call it!" The picture strip was accompanied by narration in rhyme. It got weirder once Hugh McNeill took it over in issue 12, with Charlie the Caterpillar accompanying Ernie on his adventures. Other artists to draw the strip include Eric Bradbury and Denis Gifford, with scripts by Nobby Clark.
Burkas etc. fear of the unknown, the things that nightmares are made of. i live near boston, lincolnshire, very,very few muslims, but hoards of eastern europeans. we had a shooting last weekend, a stabbing yesterday, all in the now polish quarter of town, and bodies being found floating down the river a short while ago. I take everyone as I find them. I was leaving the post office a few days ago and two fully clad muslim girls were coming in, i stepped back and held the door open for them, they were young girls i think, they giggled and said, with real meaning, thank you very much. good mannered girls. The point i am trying to make is that it doesn't matter where you came from, intergrate with us and we can accept you, but I will never accept aliens who cannot accept our way of life. Thats just my opinion, but i think most people think like that, and thats also true for most of the black population thats been here for many years and call Brtain home.
I totally 100% agree - well done Mr Parsons ...
