Several decades on the transformation is remarkable. As one gets acclimatised to the local culture, its cleanliness, zero crime and unemployment amongst the under fifties, it is clear the UK has much to learn from this exceptionally efficient country.
There is an air of respect, good manners and pride. Taxi drivers, border guards, maids, shopkeepers, road sweepers and those running their own businesses, are all happy with their lot, smart and hard working.
The pavements are spotless; there is no graffiti, not even Banksy! The utilities work, road repairs and developments take place throughout the night and weekends, speeding things up and causing as little disruption to the public as possible. New under passes and underground stations appear in the city centre as if by magic, with minimum fuss, and quick as lightning.
There is little or no crime and any which does occur, is dealt with immediately and severely. At all ports and airports signs inform that anyone found with drugs will be executed! Everyone is accounted for and is accountable, and those found without an ID card are swiftly removed.
It is hard not to draw a comparison with the UK, which quite frankly appears to be increasingly sloppy. Successive governments have bent over backwards to try to please everyone and win votes. The result is a break down of standards and respect. Filthy congested streets, soaring crime rates, resulting in a general feeling of disloyalty and discontent.
We all need rules and regulations, knowing there are boundaries. The gathering pace of the PC revolution, and priority of ‘Human Rights’ above what is best for the nation, is rebounding upon us all.
One person’s opinion or views are as valid as another. No individual, organisation or political faction has the right to silence another, unless of course violence or extremism is being advocated.
It is never too late to put ones house in order. The open door which is Brexit, offers an opportunity to put the UK’s house in order. If MRS May fails to grasp the nettle, which we all know will initially be painful, she will not be forgiven,
Those who voted Leave knew it would be difficult but worth fighting for. Those who moan and wish to reverse ‘the people’s vote’, are naïve and less resilient. They want a quiet easy life, sticking to the crumbling status quo. They appear not to care that the UK is being over populated, manipulated financially, politically and culturally by the EU’s master’s in Brussels, to suit Germany and France. They fail to look long term.
Leavers include a vast cross section from all communities, including young people, farmers, tradesmen and those who run their own businesses from different backgrounds and cultures. Many were immigrants themselves, and have played their part in moulding Britain as it is today. We are still the majority and we must stand up and make our voices heard.
Last week concerns were raised that police forces are unable to cope with the escalating levels of crime, including child abuse. One has to ask what is going on? Mrs May when Home Secretary failed to take advice from the very people who dealt with our security. Then as now, she believed that she knew best and cut budgets and boots on the ground. Let us hope the current Home Secretary will reverse the cuts, and follows the example of Singapore, where society, law and order, trade and employment work. Get a grip on crime including drugs, and clamp down on every faction or politically motivated destructive agenda, whether individuals, nationals or internationals, who wish us harm.
