Why voting UKIP may be the most hypocritical decision an Englishman can make

Vote for whomever you wish but be influenced by facts not propaganda. 

And Know that "I am going to vote UKIP or BNP" is a slap in the face to all of us from Immigrant heritage. A slap in the face to all of those people who drive 'your' buses, work in 'your' hospitals, serve you in 'your' shops, clean 'your' schools, streets, restrooms etc etc and generally keep this great country ticking over; not to mention all of the other hard work so called immigrants do.

So stop and think....

Think about how difficult your life would be if someone who wasn't born here wasn't working to serve you in some capacity. 

Think about when you watch sports and you cheer for the likes of Raheem Sterling, Mo Farah, Kevin Pieterson, Bradley Wiggins, Chris Jordan and the countless people from immigrant heritage. 

Think about how immigrants contribute more to the economy than they take in benefits. Think about how more entrepreneurs are migrants. 

Think about how 1 in 7 companies are set up my migrants. Think about how history has taught us that blaming minorities and immigrants for your countries problems only leads to extremism and a divided nation. 

"One in seven new companies in Britain is set up by migrants. Shamefully, the migrant labour force creates roughly twice as many entrepreneurs as does the British-born population. Those who complain that migrants are stealing their jobs may very well end up working for them"  Telegraph

Think about how 100s of thousands of British people leave the country each year to seek a new life. Yet, you complain about people trying to do the same here. 

Finally, do your OWN research don't be influenced by youtube videos, memes and scaremongering. If you haven't got the ability to read and comprehend something you supposedly are so passionate about then maybe that's why you are afraid some "foreigner" will take your job. Improve your life rather than deny someone the chance to improve theirs.

The image of someone coming here to leach off our benefits is grossly exaggerated. You don't leave your home, family and way of life to come and sit on your arse. People are trying to better themselves, earn a new life for their family and have a fresh start.

Example; my granddad was born in Jamaica, he came to England at 17. He has lived and worked in Britain longer than i have been alive. As a carpenter he was one of the many men and women who helped rebuild this country. His contribution to Britain far exceeds my own and i was born here. 

Yet you blame them so called "immigrants for the countries problems. Forgetting that you applaud those who make too much money but do too little. You allow those who bleed the country financial dry through not paying their fair share of taxes; through having far more than they need and you vote for people who don't use any of the services they are cutting because they are rich enough to go private...

Society is broken because we blame the wrong people and don't want to look deep and hard at ourselves!

Turns out i did lecture you... But some people need to have an opposite perspective presented to them.

The hypocrisy of a sick world...

A man works at a factory and everyday he takes a wheelbarrow home.
Each day, he has to walk past a security guard. 
Each day, the security guard looks in the wheelbarrow and then lets him pass. The security guard suspects he is stealing something but he just can't spot what it is. 
After 50 years, he says to the man 
"look, i am retiring today, i won't tell anyone, what have you been stealing?"
"you promise not to say?"
"yes i promise, i have caught a guy stealing a pen for his daughter's homework, a few guys taking bread for their families to eat and even one guy taking tap water to clean his clothes... but you i just couldn't catch. Either you are the most honest man here or the most ingenious... "
"ok well, i have been stealing wheelbarrows all this time. I have a whole business now. I don't even need to work here."
"arghh, well too late now, have a nice day"

Sometime we look so hard for the hidden agenda, the cabal, secret organisation and conspiracy; that we miss the bigger picture and we miss the obvious. We end up demonise a man trying to survive and idolise a man exploiting the system and bleeding it dry. 

The obvious is...
We pay and respect people who entertain us more than people who educate, heal and keep us safe.
We pay politicians each year to cut jobs and keep us inline and in our places, instead of preparing us to free ourselves from this cycle of mediocrity, inequality and depression.
We fear people living the same struggles as us, with the same lack of power and think they are the ones taking our jobs.
We abuse drugs and alcohol more and then wonder why we have to wait longer at the hospital.
We support those who seek to divide us, more than those who will unite us around a common goal and struggle.
We seek headlines to show how the world is against us and then complain how the media is nothing but negativity. Forgetting that the media is a reflection on the way we perceive ourselves and our reality. 
We sit and watch other's live out fake realities on tv and then wonder why our own lives seem so boring. 
We cheer millionaires on luscious grass pitches playing with balls. 
But Jeer at Fireman, Teachers and Transport/Public Services workers striking; so they can get better pay and protect their pensions.
We say somebody should do something and forget we are somebody!
We applaud style over substance and wonder why there won't be anymore "i have a dreams"
Why? because a dream won't fit into 144 characters...

Here is why i think education is failing society and not teaching people what they need to know.
