4,000 PEOPLE A WEEK TRYING TO LEAVE UK

BRITAIN is facing a mass exodus of people looking to escape the crime and grime of modern living.
The country’s biggest foreign visa consultancy firm has revealed that applications have soared in the last seven months by 80 per cent to almost 4,000 a week. Ten years ago the figure was just 300 a week.
Most people are relocating within the Commonwealth – in Australia, Canada and South Africa. They are almost all young professionals and skilled workers aged 20-40.
And many cite their reason for wanting to quit as immigration to these shores – and the burden it is placing on their communities and local authorities. The dearth of good schools, spiralling house prices, rising crime and tax increases are also driving people away.
“Ironically, one of the main reasons for leaving is the overstretch of services due to increasing immigration into the UK. People are looking for the better standard of living offered by other countries, as even the most idyllic villages in Britain are under pressure from rising populations.
Skilled labour is obviously an advantage, but so is speaking the English language. Most countries are harder to get into if you don’t speak English. UK plc simply isn’t fighting hard enough to keep its people. Some are telling us they are fed up with living in this country. Even business people are saying they’ve had enough.
“And time and time again they are saying to us they don’t want to be seen as racist because they are quitting because of immigration. We tell them of course they’re not.”

Britain deserves our attention because it is Canada in a concentrated form. What I mean by this is that Britain's immigration policy is not too dissimilar from Canada's and the effects are the same: the native population is being replaced. Britain is an island nation of 60 million people. Canada's population is around 33 million. Canada is the second largest geopolitical land mass. Canadians who feel overwhelmed by mass immigration have a lot of places to go and a lot of land to settle to get away from it. The British are not so fortunate. Immigration is following them to small towns and villages as immigrants pour out of London and begin to settle in the countryside. Therefore the effects of mass immigration - mass third world immigration to be precise - are more "in your face" in Britain and the British reaction should not surprise anyone. This is why I think public opinion on immigration matters are different in Canada and Britain. Canadians can move away and pretend that their country is not changing and that everything is fine (a very Canadian thing to do) whereas the British do not have that option. This may help explain why many British feel it is necessary to jump ship. On a related note I do recall one Dane advise his fellow Danes to emigrate as a means to escape the increasing Muslim population in Denmark. Apparently the Danish government, like Britain's and Canada's, see no need to preserve the cultural and ethnic presence of the domestic population opting to replace it instead with a more "colourful" one.
Those British who do decide to move to Canada will be shocked to see that Canada is just as determined to make Canada as unrecognizable as possible much like Britain is becoming less British by the day. I don't understand why our governments are doing what they are doing. I fail to see the rationale in making whites a minority in white majority countries. Whites are a minority in the global village anyway. Are they to be minorities everywhere and in every country? What is accomplished by that?
