    thats what happens when you ship in cheap labour, then expect to change peoples cultures, multiculturinsm is not possible, when are the naieve, idealistic, patronizing middle classes going to learn, looks like from now onwards, too late suckers. Everybody wants to rule the world, especially the secular religions, who do not want to mix, they are from a dog eat dog world, give em an inch they take a mile, not rocket science to most.
