Excellent video posted beanstew!
I agree with the amnesty idea wholeheartedly, and Brown annoyed me, because he didn't appear to understand the issue with his dull, repetitive comments! This is a dumb link, but American Apparel have been running their 'Legalise LA' campaign for a few years now, that aims to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants in Los Angeles. I'm not sure if the situation is the same here, but it seems that in LA tax is taken out of 'illegals' pay regardless of their status in some cases. I'm not sure if that occurs here but I think - if people want to pay into the system (or already are unknowingly) then they should get the benefits we all receive.
Rat Race: it is that issue of people coming to this country to fill the vacuum of jobs that many British people won't do. Its odd, because it is the same people who become enamored with the BNP. Like they can't see that maybe it is they who are part of the 'problem'.
I work on the High St and I think there is a bit of tension between the European community and the English community on the city centre estates, whihc is probably the origin of many comments I hear. According to them, the English are angels and the E.Europeans are nothing but...well. I can't type it here. There is good and bad in every community, I just wish people would see that rather than blanket generalisations.
I got the BNP leaflet in the post the other day and tore it to shreds. I think my friend who had come round to my house with me thought I was bananas!
