John Cleese (of Monty Python fame) has stated that if he had to live in England, he would choose Bath over London, as Bath is one of the few English towns that still appears to be English. He's not being racist; he just wants England to continue to look like England.
Social experiment is always dangerous; whereas natural development usually isn't. The great problem with the Socialist's recent 'door-wide-open' policy, is not that England has had a huge sudden massive influx of foreigners, but that the majority of these immigrants have absolutely no intention to assimilate. They are there for the money and life-style; earned or handed-out (usually the latter).
Oh, and just in case you were wondering why I'd posted the above picture.... It's just an ordinary street in London; the sort where John Cleese doesn't want to live.
p.s. Poor Mr Cleese has recently divorced his wife Ms Alyce Faye Eichelburger. This charming woman, who he rescued from life in a council flat, has recently received a cash settlement of £12 million, plus an annual payment of £600,000 for the next 7 years. Not only was Cleese shocked by the court order; but so was the whole of England. Cleese later said "I think I got off lightly; just imagine what I'd have had to pay Alyce, had she contributed anything to the relationship".
Cleese also said that if he and Ms Eichelburger were both to die tomorrow, HER children would end up much richer than HIS..... Divorce is a wonderful thing in England; as long as you're a woman.
Mr Cleese is thinking of settling in Australia.
When we were over in the Uk the first time we stayed at Earls Court and when we went to investigate ot far from our Motel there were Indian people everywhere,we were surprised.If you visited Sydney right now in the city area it is "pick an Aussie" we brag about being muliti-cultural which I think is wonderful,I just wish they had left their guns and knives at home!daily we are having fights between war lords that 5 years ago was never heard of...must be world wide I think.ReplyDelete
I used to live near Bath. I think if I hadn't moved to Australia we would have tried to move to Bath.ReplyDelete
London reminds me of New York culturallyReplyDelete
in ,my mind both cities are doing ok!
I have always loved John, Therefore I'll be packing up my Wellies and my Rosie coveralls in order to leave this farm and move to Australia. I'll cook for him, clean for him, raise pigs for him and mend his broken heart. Not all woman are made like Alyce. Do you think he will mind if I bring my hubbie ?ReplyDelete
Donna. I can't speak for Mr Cleese, but I reckon you're on a winner. Not so sure about the hubbie.ReplyDelete
I live in Bath, and so does Mr Cleese now. I would think that about three-quarters of it's population is made up of outsiders like me, but - because there is no concentration of obviously (i.e. Moslem or Asian) ethnicity, it still can feel extremely provincial, which is what Cleese seems to like.ReplyDelete
In the 70s, there was a tiny bit of friction here involving 2nd and 3rd generation people from West Indian parentage, but that's all settled down nicely now. People have finally realised that you don't have to be white to be British, and Al Quaeda have done their best to give all Moslems a bad name, taking the pressure off the West Indians for the time being.
If I could afford to, I would love to have a second home in London, like Mr Cleese does.
It is a very cynical world :ReplyDelete
1. Don't be sad about Mr Cleese he has bought his freedom.
2. Time of arrival of the ancestors of Indigenous Australians ( Aboriginii and/or Torres Strait Islanders) is a matter of debate among researchers, with estimates dating back as far as 125,000 years ago.
I can imagine that they must have wished that when the white-man arrived that they had left their guns behind!
3. Strange how the white English feel that it is was ok to invade and rip off their black and coloured cousins, but not to have them move into the UK.
Heron. It's a mystery why he ever bought the third set of shackles.ReplyDelete
Your second point I'm not so sure about. When, in April 1770, Cook tried to land to take on water and fresh food, it was the Aboriginals who attacked, NOT Cook's men.
And on your third point, I don't think you'll find many people in the UK (other than extremists) who are anti black or coloured per se. It's the refusal to integrate that is generally disliked. I presume it is this to which Mr Cleese was referring.
Oh, and I forgot. For an open Socialist come Lib/Dem supporter who funded Obama to the tune of $2,300, Cleese could hardly be accused of being anti black.ReplyDelete
