Immigration

God has created diverse human beings to live in this tiny global village of one family. Creation by its very nature is diverse with different species, different communities, different cultures and languages. These differences represent the beauty and wonder but diversity is sometimes not fully appreciated, resulting in all sorts of clashes. The British society and Establishment must learn to respect and accommodate others, as if in a family.

Burqa or Niqab

This is Britain. We are to a large extent 'free' people. Therefore they should be allowed to wear what they want. I am sick of government intervention in ever aspect of everyone's lives! So we make the rules to promote so-called Freedom of Right and then when we come up
against an issue we don't know what to do. Typical Britain, where we do not seem to think about many things before we act in the first place. This is just the beginning. As they say when you go to Rome do what the Romans do! But we are not and will never be the Romans either.

Hate Crimes

A hate crime investigation has been launched by a counter terrorism unit after a threatening letter was sent to a mosque. The abusive letter was sent to Southend Mosque and coincided with a number of similar incidents across the country, including a mosque in Colchester and three mosques in Kent.

Mosques in Blackpool, Maidstone and Canterbury were cordoned off after the letters were discovered to contain a white powder which was later found to be harmless. No injuries were reported.

Islamophobia

Islamophobia is powered by politics, domestic and foreign policies, and through recent political campaigns. It’s powered by our institutions and our labour market. It plays out on our TVs and social media, in our schools, and on the streets. It was only last year that a white terrorist ploughed his van into Muslims outside Finsbury Park Mosque.

Multilingualism

I suggest those who see language only as a means of communication fail to appreciate that language equals cultural values and creates a bond between people - if you force a foreigner to speak YOUR language this opportunity is lost. This stuff matters in business and politics. the arrogance of the English speaker who shouts and waves his hands about is mocked around the world! Learning another language helps you understand the rules of language in general, and that has grammar too! Through learning a new language, you understand your own better. ANY foreign language will improve your grammar in your own language. Bilingual children know more grammar through their acquisition of grammar. They therefore understand grammatical relations better than monolingual children.
