Without going down the racial road, am I alone in experiencing my jaw dropping on the carpet when you see snippets on the box of schools ("darn sarth mate")with maybe one white pupil in the class of gawd knows how many ??
I believe this to be the exception rather than the rule and hasn't been isolated to the south. The tabloids are very good at finding these stories and using them to inflame emotions.
IMVHO it isn't the colour of peoples skin which is an issue but a lack of intergration into the local culture - that is human nature - look at all the Brits living in Spain or France who don't / won't mix with the local and can't speak a word of the local language.
The problem these days is other 'Europeans' having the freedom to come and go as they please claiming here there and everywhere along the way but I bet the number of those is still less than the full blooded English white chav leeches that see bleeding this country dry as their rite of passage
