Well.. I tend to disagree.. from what I see in provincial cities and from what I hear from friends. The invasion is across the board. French people have become a minority.
If they were decent people, maybe I wouldn't mind that much. But they aren't. Do you think French people vote for a party like the FN just because they are stupid?
~A~
Only 17% of French voted FN, that's less than 1 in 5.

I can never see the FN in power, but I may be wrong.
If it is, France will experience no less than a civil war anyway, with a very uncertain outcome!

Well I can see the FN winning in the next elections. As amazing as this may sound. More and more young people of French/European descent tend to support the FN. I also see more and more older people around me supporting it as well. You cannot imagine how fed up people are in this country. The reason they only get 17% is that you have non Europeans voting against it. And they represent more than just 5% of the population unfortunately. As you rightly mentionned they hide the true statistics so as not to scare the population.
I have never seen people around me complaining so much about the Arabs. Even people that used to be more "tolerant". It seems that crime has reached new highs and much of it does not even get reported.
I tell you Greece feels more European than France. Greeks are not afraid to deal with criminals. I am French, but I have to admit that French people here have no guts. Some even have this feeling of guilt dating back from Vichy. This is totally BS. Greek people, Italian people, German people are not afraid to deal with criminals. And when the police says " we dont have time", that's when you need an organisation like the Golden Dawn to come and clean up the neighborhood and protect innocent elderly women who are easy prey to these animals.

I hate people of your kind, they act open minded in order to feel so superior. In reality you have given up your country to the muslims and you are a coward.

Well, there are less Muslims in UK than in France. About 50% less.

You are the one who has given his country, and not me. You moved to Greece, I am still in UK.

Looks to me like you are the coward.

PS. If you had to run away from France, you couldn't chose a worst place to live than Greece.

So, your solution is more right wing extremism, more racism and France adopting NAZI methods?

You really don't like your country, do you ... to wish that for it!

If France voted on the fn, they would show themselves to be the most primitive and extreme country in the west, other countries would refuse to work with France, France would lose its standings in 5he un and all other organisations, it would be a humiliation for France and the whole world would condemn you

Yeah, let's talk about the gang rape scandal in India, and how the police refuses to take the complaints.
Apparently, sometimes the police officers themselves rape the victims who report a previous rape!
And the courts refuse to punish the rapists, telling them to marry their victims instead!
Tell us about that straa .... LOL

Deranged Rio, ctotisizes Alexander for being racist, and then calls be paki and insults India, he is a schizophrenic, with severe split personality syndrome, he will say one thing and then the complete opposite another time, like he has severe mental problems and many split, alternate personalities, or is he just so desperate for attention that he has to play both sides of an argument, saying opposite positions simultaneously, just to have someone to talk and argue with, he is a very disturbed individual, but don't worry, its all being taken care of

As an economic migrant from India in Europe, you are not fit to criticise either France or Britain, sunshine.
You only try to look British by assuming the glorious past of our country to slander a neighbour of our.
Rivalry between France and Britain has existed for centuries, and we don't need a sub-continent migrant to interfere in the debate.
Also, the great pages of history in the relationship between Britain and France have been written in blood, and without Indians participation. That's why we don't need your overdone fake Britishness between us.
Go back to your pompadoms and stop pretending that you are more Brit than the Brits themselves by joining a chorus where you have no place!

Actually my friend told me to come back to the country in order to support the motherland! I came back to Greece yesterday and for the first time in my life, I felt that it was nice to be back, a relief!! I know...it's amazing. Here the Greeks take matters in their own hands when it comes to arabs causing trouble.

I tell you , everytime I come back to France its getting worse. There is an incredible rise in crime since Hollande took power. I saw it in Paris with my own eyes. You just dont feel safe in public transportation and even in nice neighborhoods in central Paris. I also read an article about crime in France on Le Figaro and it confirmed my worst fears. Tourists must sense France is not safe.

Even in provincial cities the situation is extremely worrying. There is sharp rise in crime bulglaries, street attacks etc The worst thing is that schools are unsafe as well which may be the reason why Marine Le Pen is extremely popular among the French youth.

This new government is an utter and complete DISASTER. Ayrault is clueless. Taubira has removed penatlies for minors. Now arabs and africans below 18 can freely roam the streets and terrorise the population. I was sad to see elderly women totally terrorised and afraid to walk outside.

I do not recognize my country anymore. Don't call the French racist, you wouldn't allow this to happen in your own country. The Brits are extremely elitist and they are ruthless with criminals from what I have seen, and rightly so. Every citizen has a right to protect his country. I tell the Greeks here don't become like us in France. And they listen to me. Don't let these apprentis sorciers in power. Look what they have done to France. They will do it to Europe!!

Wow, you must be working for the Greek Tourist Board to slag off France in this manner. Without minimising the risks, you grossly over-exagerate the situation in France.

And all that because you expect to put the blame on the Arabs in France. Half of them are fully integrated, with jobs, own property, small business, and have turned to be very secular and not at all fanatic as you depict.

Give an Arab a job, respect him, pay him correctly and you can make of him a decent citizen with the same values as an European, as many cases have proven. It's only stupid racists like you who can't see the forest from the tree.
