More immigration

Recommended Posts

They come here uninvited and steal the food from the indiginous population, and it seems we are powerless to stop it:

Really ! yawn

 

 

:lol: The difference is Asp; the tax-payer won't be paying to feed and shelter them !  :lol: 

so it must be none tax paying public only who are supplying so much food that the blackcaps are staying here.  Did you even read the article before commenting?

Does this mean if I feed wild birds I don't have to pay tax? I'll be calling HMRC tomorrow for a rebate :lol:

or maybe you aren't allowed to feed wild birds unless you are on the dole or a child or a Tory donor etc.

Of course I've read it,  and of course those feeding them are attracting them; which I suppose has a certain similarity to the human migration; but feeding birds isn't compulsory, taxation is - unless you can afford a good accountant ! Jeesh!

Well I found it funny Asp :D

Unfortunately we've had to stop putting bird seed and fat balls etc in our gardens (as have out neighbours) as we seem to have a problem with rats round here these days :( 
We've lived in our house for over 20 years and have never had a problem with rats before but sorry little birdies but you'll have to go for your nibbles somewhere else now.
I always thought they only came out at night but how wrong I was EEK!

I wont upload the photo of one of the rats we caught in the trap as know you are a sensitive bunch.  Seems they have become a big problem in Warrington over the past couple of years and I wonder why that is ?

It's squirrels with me. They destroy bird feeders to get at the seeds unfortunately.

Squirrels are lovely, one keeps running along the fence near ours (front not back where the rats lurk) and it's so lovely and funny to watch.  Cute little thing :D

  :lol: :lol: Well they are here to stay now and nowt you or anyone else can do about it. They weren't illegal ones though and were welcomed with open arms, but brought in new germ which wiped out the natives. 

We are all doomed  :lol:

I think you will find they were born here to parents that were and that they go back many generations.  Like the Farage family really :wink:

Introduced into UK in 1870's; out eating and out breeding the native red squirrel. Also brought squirrel pox with them, for which the red squirrel had no immunity.

They never came here they were brought here. A common myth is that they are solely responsible for the demise of the red squirrel where in fact loss of habitat, pine forests, are at least as much to blame. Grey and reds also have different diets, for example greys love acorns, reds can't digest them and live mainly on pine cones. As in most cases it's far too easy To blame immigrants for all the ills in the world

"Never came here" - so there's none here then?!!!!   A very common "myth" I'm afraid !  Not the "ills of the world", just the ills of the places they invade !  :lol:

Sigh! I said they were brought here, no doubt against their will, much like the British deliveries of slaves going the other way. I suppose you believe in the tooth fairy too as that is a very popular myth. They don't invade, your anti everything foreign agenda even stretches to squirrels. As I said, Farage and his family are descended from immigrants, like the grey squirrels yet you love him don't you?

I'm surprised at your comment PJ.  Of course the tooth fairy exists, good grief I thought a man of your intelligence would have know that.

"Brought in" or "let in"; they're still "in"; and whilst no one can blame the squirrels; we can no doubt blame the myopia of those that did bring or let them in. btw I've no problem with "foreigners" at all, enjoy visiting them on hols and have no probs with them visiting here on hols; so nothing to do with zenaphobia, just numbers.
