    Eonoch Powell predicted this 50 years ago as the inevitable result of allowing indescriminate mass immigration from such sources and called for a halt, but the politicians ignored the warning.

    You shouldn't be making 'political' excuses for what was clearly a case of criminal violence, plain and simple, combined - it seems - with some clumsy policing. Blaming decisions made by people five decades ago is a pretty extreme case of covering up for the real culprits. Why would you not place the blame at the feet of those who rioted?

    Well, that would mean there is no longer an excuse for thinly veiled racism.

    he has been reading the tabloids... immigrants are bad, m'kay?

    Immigrants aren't bad, you just have to know that when you allow for immigration, you allow for greater public unrest. Sure they are cheap labor, but cheap labor comes at a price.

    The country gets to suffer so that the rich can profit from cheap labor.

    Uncontrolled mass immigration from the Caribbean has proved to be bad, resulting in the sort of riot and mayhem currently seen in Tottenham and other Afro/Caribbean enclaves of London.

    Uncontrolled mass immigration from continental Europe hasn't been an unmitigated success either.

    I do not recall any reports of rioting and looting by European immigrants, nor for that matter by any others except muslims,
