Immigration works here because the Swiss don't pander to the sensibilities of their guests.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Interesting article on the scale of Trumps falsehoods. Clinton (Bill) told a few as well apparently.

Seems a pretty tame affair!

Look at this foot ball riot in Basel last year, 5 police injured and a police car burnt

Source (German language)

Do not know if the BBC reported

Another one. Trump was referring to the ongoing disaster that is immigration in modern Europe. You can shout racism as loud and as long as you want, but people won't listen anymore. Whether it's riots in Paris, riots in Sweden, terrorists in Brussels, sex attacks in Germany or child grooming in Rotherham, multiculturalism and integration has failed in Europe and the people have people have had enough.

The bottom line is, he is right.
Polls show that even Europeans agree with Trump and wish they can apply the same border EO measures here.

Basically, Trump is still being proved to be right. Media talking heads are just not admitting it.

That is winning, no?

And again the cycle of ghettoisation and crime that we saw in Paris and Marseilles, is long long established in Malmo and now Stockholm. Those who chose to ignore the lessons of history are doomed to inflict it's miseries on others...

The irony of Marton et al continuing to extol the "good news" of how Sweden's economy is doing when it's tax base is being destroyed and news comes in that less than 500 of the 163,000 "asylum seekers" in 2016 have landed a job.

http://www.thelocal.se/20160531/fewe...ers-found-jobs
Swedens tax base is not being destroyed; this is your false assumption. Or do you have a source?

The strong Swedish economy easily absorbs this number of jobless. Or do you have a reputable source to the contrary, I assume not?

There is no doubt that Sweden's immigration policy, and resulting levels of integration, have been far less than ideal. Racial tensions have continually increased, and in one of the most progressive countries in the world. It just goes to show that welcoming large numbers of immigrants with open arms is no replacement for first gaining a cultural understanding and long-term strategy of the issues you will face when everyone arrives.
Funny all those people who said we were making false assumptions that Trump meant there was a terror attack in Sweden.

Now the same people are assuming this riot was by immigrants

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Amazing the number of immigrants (who call themselves expats) in South of France, Dordogneshire and South of Spain- who complain bitterly about Blighty having 'gone to the dogs' who

don't speak the language
use their own deliveries from UK
their own builders bringing everything from UK
insist on eating 'full English' and buying only UK foods where they are
send their kids to English speaking schools
built their own Churches of their own denominations, with their own Priests, etc
live in 'ghettos' in a 'bubble' hardly ever meeting locals
Insist in walking around and going into restos, etc, with belly hanging out and no t-shirt and builders' bum, skimpy t-shirts and shorts, etc. which are offensive to the locals, etc, etc, etc.

Where is that picture with the iron now?

Wow...so much hostility here

On the brighter side, there is hope to get the non-sense fixed: fatca, fbar, residence iso citizen based taxation

You're new here.

This isn't hostile by EF standards. Not yet.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Does anyone else here think that Trump is doing a fine job of deflecting attention from the many failings of the United States?

A minor scuffle in Sweden, which happened after Trump made some ambiguous comment based on something he'd seen on a fake news TV channel, looks rather like a Scout jamboree compared to every night in Chatham, Chicago (74 violent crimes in December alone, including 6 homicides). Must be all those Muslim refugees in South Chicago.

The media and people on here also decided to "interpret" that Trump was referring to a non existent terror attack. He did no such thing.

My point is that it works both ways.
