So what do you guys think of this article where the woman writes about how she feels so lonely living in a London area 'where Muslims have taken over' and no one chats to her in shops and the ladies in Niqab ignore her?

Well the fact that it is in the telegraph is all I need to know. LOL

You know she lives in London now, if she doesn't like it here she can go back to her little villiage in Shropshire where there is only one shop in the villiage.
I'm sure it is very easy for a villiage shop keeper to have a long conversation with each and ever customer if his shop has between 10 and 20 customers a week.
London is a very different place.

I am amazed at her super powers. The ability to tell which of the brown skinned people she sees are Muslims and not Sikhs, Hindus, brown and black Christians as well as white Christians with sun tans.
Only about 10% of people there are Muslims, but about 40% are nonwhite. So I'm sure she will feel overwhelmed by the number of Muslims if she sees every brown face and every white face with a fake tan as a Muslim.

I think she states it at the end.
People have always come to London from other places.
And when they do, racists like her always got upset about it.
What is new?
What is new is her coming to London. while complaining about all the whites that are leaving London.
And all the whites that are leaving the UK.
If she doesn't like it in a big city where people have many different skin colours. She can go back to her little whites only villiage.

London is impersonal. It's not about skin colour or religion.

However, I have this American friend who is so American, starts conversations with everyone & they always respond positively, guess the sweetness & friendliness is infectious..... Not me tho. I'm British & we just don't go around having friendly conversations with random people, making friends everywhere. It's unseemly.

She's upset because the shop owners wouldn't come and hang her curtains for her. Entitled or what! She has no proof they actually offered that service at all.


She doesn't like white immigrants either.

She wants to be back in the eighties.

People who emphasise how not racist they are doth protest too much IME.
