Leaving Europe

Reader comment on item: Europeans Fleeing Eurabia

Submitted by Ben (United States), Sep 23, 2006 at 14:47

Leaving Europe for New Zealand, was the best thing I ever did.

However the reasons for people leaving are complex and not just due to the growing Islamification of Europe. In my case I had lived in London for a few years in the '90s and while nothing bad happened to me I did have the uneasy feeling that the place would not be safe in 20 years time. Another reason I left was because I felt that the economy would take a downturn (this is the UK I am talking about, not Europe in general). Basically the UK imports far more than it exports and isn't self sufficient in anything, including, from 2004 oil.

It is my belief that the UK economy will collapse long before the place becomes part of the Caliphate. You have 60 million people in the same land area as NZ which has only 4 million (though the NZ government wants to increase the numbers a bit). Where these people are going to get their food and energy from in 40 years once oil runs out wil be a major problem. While the Muslims will no doubt seek to burn library books for heating, as they did with the library of Alexandria to heat the city baths after the Muslim conquest of Egypt in the 7th Century I hardly think it would be a long term solution for the UK.

The overwhelming sense of gloom present in the UK these days seems to stem from the fact that the people have lost control of the country, not, at present any, to the Muslims, but to the people who formed the protesters in the '60s and now seemed to have taken control of the country, from the media (BBC is a good case in point), the judiciary, the civil service, the forces of law and order etc (none of whom are elected in the UK BTW). These former Communists, Trotskites, Marxists etc are now in control in the UK and seem hell bent on imposing their failed ideology on the country. You only have to look how many ministers in the present Blair Labour government are former communists to see this.

It is difficult to see where the UK and Europe goes from here. A kind of McCarthyite inquiry seems to make sense. Once these people have been removed from their offices of power then the other problems can be acted on. At the current time only the BNP in the UK seem to have any policies that will hope the reverse the worrying trends.
