    There is a difference between living abroad and settling abroad. Most Brits only live abroad. They bring their ways with them, but usualy respect local law and custom.
    All the Brits I have met who have settled abroad have done their best to fit into the society in which they live, though my experience is limited.
    Of course they are still British, but where there is a conflict in British tradition and local then they normally bow to local.
    It has been my experience that MOST settlers in the UK do exactly the same thing and enrich the UK society by so doing.
    It is the settlers who will not accept local traditions and local laws who are undermining multicultural societies. Many of these settle in local communities which are microcosms of the Country they left they become no go areas to anyone else. The question has to be asked, if it was so good there why did they move elsewhere.

    Yup, on BBC Breakfast News this morning some mealy-mouthed weasel called Adam (didn't catch his surname) was expounding on what "we" in the country believe.

    ...yeah there's lots of "cringe" TV about Brits settling abroad (and staying British really), maybe this is old stuff coz I watch BBC-Prime in Switzerland (basically old junk shipped abroad for johnny foreigner).

    But just as a by-the-by, there seems to programme after programme on buying houses, there's even a documentary about an Estate Agent



    I mean who the **** is interested in an Estate Agent...

    Do people actually watch that stuff in the UK ?????

    "Does multiculturalism make Britain a better place" vs "people who come to Britain should adopt British values/traditions"
    Do you not think that it is for precisely that reason the questions were asked in this manner?

    You can obtain any results you want - if you ask the right question...

    At the same time, 58% thought "people who come to live in Britain should adopt the values of and traditions of British culture".

    And for once in his life chico actually had a valid question/point, you would be very susprised how many different interpretations the man on the street has of "multiculturalism".

    I think it's a Bliar Brainwashing Corporation exercise...

    If we hear the results often enough on the Radio and see them on the Goggle box then we'll be convinced that all is right with the world... and that the MMB don't want to wipe us off the face of the planet.
