WHO'S BRITISH NOW!?
Britain's high streets have a truly international flavour,reflecting immigrant cuisine,The consumer boom in washing machines in the 1950s converted a Chinese community centred on laundries to a community centred on laundries to a community specialising in restaurants and takeaways ,Bangladeschi,Indian,Chinese,Vietnamese,Turkish,Italian and Greek restaurants are common features across Britain.The crucial service industries-health and public trasport.continue to rely largely on immigrants.Their descendants too make up much of their workforce .Many areas of commerce ,especially the clothing industry and corner shops,have been developed by various immigrant groups.More recently the fastest growing ethnic group are children of mixed parentage,reflecting diverse origins,so that the melting pot is growing alongside stable and culturally distinct communities.Those who clamoured most loudly for an end to immigration have seen their demands increasingly met by governments .But at the same time as closing the gates,governments have had to acnowledge that multicutural Britain is here to stay.Today politicians and media are attacking the soft targets-desperate asylum seekers.They pour out the same tired arguments against them that were first used a century ago aganist Jewish communities and later against Black communities who are now firmly estabilished here.Yet they cheer vociferously for the national football team,now largely composed of the descendants of those same immigrants.
