I'm gonna hit you with a bit of a deep one here, and I'd appreciate it if the thread doesn't degrade down to the gutter, anyway here goes.
The full title is ..... What effect is it having on you?
And the topic is the current state of affairs in this country.
As many of you know I meet a lot of ppl in my job, and one thing that crops up a lot in conversation is migration and 3rd 4th generation migrants, i.e ppl not originating from here but born here.
As you can imagine most of what is said to me is negative towards these ppl, and when you look at the "paranoia facts" it makes you feel like moving on yourself or feeling like you are having the wee taken out of you.
Me myself I've always been able to get along with anyone who is willing to be friends regardless of where they come from, and when I hear the anti chat my mind is split between standing up for these ppl that I know to be ok, and yeah yer right they wanna take over my country and wield the stick at me and my type.
Now as you know there seems to be mass migration over the last 5 yrs or so, but the world has seen this before, it happened in America during the New World phase some 100 yrs ago, and imo it's repeating itself but the benefits system is making it look more sinister this time around.
Anyway, almost everytime the door opens and someone gets in I face another 10 minutes of mobile "Question Time" and it tends to ruin my day, is there anyone else who faces it in a similar way and what effect does it all have on you?
