That paramedic was brilliant. He had a great manner about him, showed great empathy towards his patients, spoke perfect English with a strong scouse accent and even had a scouse sense of humour. He came to the UK aged 11 and at that time he couldn't speak any English. What a credit he is to himself, his loved ones and the ambulance service.Just watching Ambulance on BBC1. One of the paramedics is a former Somalian refugee, now with a thick Scouse accent. Another reminder how beneficial refugees can be to this country.
Yeah not necessarily these folk as we have no idea if genuine or what the backstory is, but the ones coming across the channel with no documents so they can't be sent back, its a big security risk given it only takes 1 terrorist to cause utter carnage.Don t know the background of the people who are going to be housed at the Metropole and if they have
been properly screened and vetted.
How many terrorist incidents have been caused in the UK by illegal immigrants?Yeah not necessarily these folk as we have no idea if genuine or what the backstory is, but the ones coming across the channel with no documents so they can't be sent back, its a big security risk given it only takes 1 terrorist to cause utter carnage.
We know isis or whoever else can and will use any means to gain entry.
We already have enough of a problem with imported and homegrown nutters, aprox 3000 that we know about on constant watch which is a huge drain on resources.
MI5 director-general warned that recent events in Afghanistan could lead to a new 9/11-style attack plotwww.independent.co.uk
Security should be no joke yet our country seems incredibly weak and so easy to get in and it could be anyone entering.
Although aprox 3k actively there's apparently 43000 on the watchlist of which 90% are islamists, although some haven't been to the UK but we will have to watch for them if they do arrive, there's only so many moving parts we can track without missing one piece.
Britain's top anti-terror cop Neil Basu says right-wing extremism poses the fastest growing terror threat to the UK, but new estimates and figures show the problem is still dwarfed by jihadiswww.dailymail.co.uk
Ita a worrying number of potential nutters wanting to do us harm.
We dont know that's the point, its not secure at all.How many terrorist incidents have been caused in the UK by illegal immigrants?
Unless you have the numbers you cannot justify the prejudice of your statements!
Oh, and I forgot to mention over 100 speakers are going to be installed capable of announcing public safety messages. If this was April 1st I'd swear blind it was a joke.I may be wrongly assuming you are a Blackpool resident? Maybe I should have said Blackpool Council does not have as much trust as you.
As far as I am aware, every terrorist act carried out in the UK has been investigated and the perpetrators apprehended or killed. I'll ask again. How many of those criminals were illegal immigrants?
It is the use of the racist trope that all immigrants are potential terrorists that is prejudiced.
Nooooooh! The one in Llandudno is ace. As is the one in Scarborough. Had many a bonkers night in both. You just have to accept these things for what they are, e.g. woodchip never went out of fashion, tinsel and Turkey is most definitely a thing, and bingo is a worthwhile pursuit ✌Yeh, Britannia Hotels are terrible!
I hope they can drive fuel wagons, delivery trucks, grow food, stock shelves, plant trees, protect trees from theft, teach Nobbers to speak properly etc?A sort of update:
I see that a number of asylum seekers have been housed in The Metropole Hotel, despite this originally being knocked back.
But then there was a sudden turnaround, and a reduced number of asylum seekers were housed in there, after all.
About 150 are now resident there, so we are told.
So a lot less than what we were expecting a few weeks ago.
We were originally told that these were not going to be Afghans, but people who had arrived on the south coast by dinghy (mostly young males).
But about 10 days ago there seemed to be another turnaround, and we were told that it would mainly be women, or women with children, and families.
I, and many others were a bit sceptical about this.
Anyway, it was a nice day today, and working nearby, I had my lunch on the promenade, near to the back of the Metropole Hotel, and was able to see for myself.
I actually managed to see quite a few of the residents, and nearly all of them were indeed young women, or women with children.
In fact, I can only remember seeing one male adult, and he was with his wife and 2 children.
I hope they can drive fuel wagons, delivery trucks, grow food, stock shelves, plant trees, protect trees from theft, teach Nobbers to speak properly etc?
