Chinese whispers ?


Observer II

Maybe I'm getting paranoid, but over the last few weeks, I've noticed quite a few Chinese folk out and about in Warrington.   Then I noticed an advert for Warrington, written and narrated in Chinese on You Tube.  Whilst I don't particularly object to Chinese people, as they tend to have higher I.Q's  and industrious natures;  I do wonder whether this is the advanced guard of the two million Hong Kong Chinese invited into the UK by Boris ?     :unsure:

They say that one in five children born today are Chinese.

I come from a family of five apart from me there is my sister Anne, my three brothers,Fred, Charley and Chu Fat

so one of my family must be Chinese. personally i think it's Fred.......🤦‍♀️

Honestly obs, first it was the Yanks, then it was the Poles, After that it was the "illegals". Now it's the Chinese. Only need the Russians and we will have a full set..:rolleyes:

Considering all the job vacancies at the moment we should welcome them with open arms.

And as Ob's says they are generally well educated and hard working . Just what is needed at this time.

They get a home and job we get a good worker for many years .. it's a win win situation

The theory was to bring about a points based system, whereby we would encourage the importation of those skills our economy needs; and in the case of Chinese they tend to fill this requirement.  According to Boris at PMQs around 162.000 have arrived to date, which may explain why they've become more noticeable; with of course, a lot more to come.  But that's the problem in the end,  just how long and how many migrants can we sustain ?   We are a small Island, now with the highest population density in Europe; every non working individual represents a tax consumer, overloading our Schools and NHS etc, and creating a huge burden on social housing.   Then of course for those that do work, they provide a source of cheap labour to undercut the wages of indigenous workers.   The liberal middle class may employ such cheap labour as Nannies, Cleaners, Plumbers etc; but don't have to live amongst them, as in some areas of London where gang violence is now rife.   Now we can stick our heads in the sand and raise our butts to these immigrants or we can have some sensible and controllable political planning to improve the well being of our existing population.     😠

One of the main things i have noticed over the years is the zero hours contracts.

when i started work it was a job for life or until retirement whichever came first.

these days a job is for a few months at best for a lot of people.

One of my nieces has had at least ten different jobs in the last five years. most of which lasted about a month before she got fed up with it and looked for another job. Each time she has said "Oh this is my dream job" only to find that it was hard work and not at all what she expected and so packed it in for her next dream job.

The likes of the Chinese tend to stick at a job for many years even if it is just working in their uncles takeaway shop pandering to drunks and the like.

I can bet that the nhs will soon be hemorrhaging workers again due to low wages and rises in bills. The latest insult being them having to pay to park at the place they work at.

So much for honouring the NHS heroes....😡

Nothing wrong with wanting the best education for your children. all parents aspire to that as far as i am aware, regardless of ethnic background.

The surge in house prices is probably down to greed on the part of the current owners and the estate agents.

I almost live in Woolston, and I haven’t really noticed any Chinese looking people at all, other than those who work in the local takeaway. Then again, I don’t go around specifically looking for such things, but in any case, Warrington has very few recognisable foreign people compared to many other places I could name in Britain.

As for this only being a small island and immigration numbers causing the system to breakdown, well there’s two ways of looking at that. If it was simply the case of numbers causing the problem (which I don’t believe is the case) then we’d have had a policy of limited births per family years ago. More likely the main worry comes from the fact that that the relatively well-off Brits don’t want to see people coming in who are prepared to work hard for less and I can understand that.

Fertility rates in the indigenous UK population are in decline, with non-whites being the main child bearers.   The relatively "well off" would be more likely to employ migrants as cheap labour, but more likely not to live in the same location.  First or second generation migrants now represent 50% of the London population.  :rolleyes:

We live in a world that’s changed dramatically from the time where families hardly moved from the town where they were born but nowadays people move to where they feel that they can live better, so in a sense we’re not that much different that most immigrants. And if the way of life has changed so much that the average woman needs a nanny because she needs to work, then what’s wrong with employing a Chinese person if us Brits don’t want to.

I think the nature of migrants from Hong Kong is not the same as previous waves. These people are not in poverty but better off folks looking for a life more like the free society in which they make a success of things when Hong Kong was British. The ones I have seen are complete with families and seem very confident. The usual stereotypes are unlikely to apply to these people as far as I can see. Also they are not fleeing in terror the are bringing their wealth and belongings with them, that is how come they can afford to buy houses!
