>Firstly, I don't hate foreigners, I just hate bad attitudes. Oldham (and
towns like it) are unfortunately in for perpetual unrest. Many Asians do
want to mix. Sadly, most Asians don't even see themselves as English !
(remember England v Pakistan [cricket]? - what a god-awful sight !). Blacks
mix quite well, why can’t you lot ? Have you got delusions of grandeur ? .
"Multi-racial" societies may be viable but "Multi-cultural" ones are an
impossible liberal- experiment too far. By definition, different cultures
have cultural differences. These differences tend to smother any attempt at

The "When in Rome" attitude should prevail and Asians should be given no

England having its culture and national identity stifled ? Why is England

In a multi-cultural hotch-potch, what hope
is there for sound friendships to be built ? The points raised above should
be addressed publically. Other 'oh-so-pc' efforts will probably fall on
stony ground. It's a shame, but I think that I am certain to be proved
correct. The OldhamIR is a very well-meaning but ultimately, fatally flawed
