john kerry said errr proclaimed llast month -there will be no national borders, get used to it.
I have meetings all day so Monday will be short---we will talk education policy tomorrow. I wanted to continue with the UK and US comparisons as to where both are heading and the quote from John Kerry says it all----there will be no national sovereignty in a ONE WORLD of simply International Economic Zones operating in the US and UK as they do in Asia. Kerry's claim to fame is marrying a CATSUP QUEEN, doctoring military service records to appear a hero, and now wants to tell us to GET USED TO LOSING ALL RIGHTS AS CITIZENS OF A NATION CALLED THE UNITED STATES.
The last time European and American citizens had to deal with a criminal class as political leadership we had he revolutions of 1700s and the citizens called these politicians and rich whose only talent is LYING, CHEATING, AND STEALING-----
THE SHIP OF FOOLS
Here we have a right-wing article about what London has looked like these few decades as open borders started as it did in US with CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA. The UK has allowed open borders to soar these several years during the worst of recession from economic collapse and unemployment creating what is a THIRD WORLD slum of immigrants living the lives of developing nation poverty. Meanwhile, London has courted the world's 1% and then those 1% courted the world's 2% to centralize extreme wealth vs extreme poverty ----the exact pathway now being taken by the US Congress and CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA. So, it is to no benefit of immigrant families to be brought to these conditions and of course the UK citizens being left unemployed is high numbers are being forced to emigrate to Canada or Australia to find work. So, London is simply that CITY STATE of wealth surrounded by International Economic Zone enslavement as exists in Asian nations like China. The people voting for BREXIT----the exit of UK from the EU are those rich because they are wanting to be that International Economic Zone operating as Singapore and China. Remember, England is the size of Alabama so when you have a NYC-style extreme wealth in Birmingham for example---the entire region is taken and there are no longer states or counties----just real estate and human capital tied to these massive International Economic Zone global corporate campuses and global factories. More important---there are no citizens----just floods of immigrants from around the world all working to enrich the 1% ever more.
THIS IS WHERE LONDON AND THE UK ARE TODAY AND THEY ARE MOVING FROM PRETENDING TO BE CONSERVATIVE UNDER CAMERON----TO PRETENDING TO BE MARXIST UNDER JOHNSON.
In the US voters were sold on GETTING RID OF SOCIALISM----all that social democracy of safety nets and public sector giving citizens voice in public policy and a quality of life as CONSERVATIVE values-----when the goal of Republicans was never LIBERTY AND FREEDOM from taxes or subsidizing the poor----it was always about ending LIBERTY AND FREEDOM FOR ALL.
Migrant Slums Spring Up Around London

The Sun reports that raw sewage runs through many of the camps, which are usually strewn with rubbish, beer cans, filthy clothes and bedding.
The men are picked up in trucks and vans to work for just £40 a day, “driving down wages for local plumbers and painters”. Some also gather at a Wickes in Barking, waiting for work.
A migrant from Romania told The Sun that many of the campers have “worked for two years all over Europe and it is best here in England.”
“We can earn at least three times more here than at home and much more than in Spain or Italy.
“We paint, plumb, [do] roofing, do building work.
“Some have been here six years.”
Migrants said that the camps are often dangerous due to “a lot of people getting drunk”, and lament how often people return to their spaces to find their things missing, having been stolen by other migrants.
Revealing they send almost all of the money they make back home, one migrant confessed: “I want to bring my family over one day, we all do.
“But we can’t bring our wives here to live in the camp because we are afraid the others will rape them.”
One migrant, Laurentiu, told The Sun he wants to bring his children over to the UK, but that he fears a vote for Britain to leave the EU would bring an end to this dream: “I have three kids at home and I would like to bring them here but I am worried about the vote.
“If Britain votes to leave we could all be kicked out — we would probably go back to Spain or Italy.”
Residents found the shanty towns of migrants “a complete nuisance”. A local worker said the men are “knocking wages down”.
“I feel for them but we can’t keep taking them in.”
Left-wing supporters of the campaign to remain in the European Union regularly claim that the EU “protects workers’ rights”, many almost implying it is the one body standing between the Conservative Party sending British people to the Victorian workhouse.
But it’s unclear how they think British workers can maintain a lifestyle, in which they can afford to live in reasonable lodgings and bring up children, when foreign competitors are sleeping rough in camps with almost no day-to-day living expenses.
This article is great for showing what the immigrant status is in this tiny nation of England. Unfortunately I cannot copy the graphs of nationality of immigrants that is key so visit this article to see what the demographics show. We see UK is filled with European Union people who have citizenship rights in UK because UK is in the EU. When the UK leaves the EU----all those Eastern European immigrants often living in these slums will no longer have those rights. They will be in UK just as the Asian, African, South Pacific immigrants are with no rights at all. So, UK wants to leave the EU to create this International Economic Zone condition for what are now a super-majority of UK citizens.
This is to what Obama and our Congressional pols have as a goal with all the immigration policy these several years POSING PROGRESSIVE while giving Latinos more rights as in driver's license etc----with only the goal of bringing more and more and more immigrants from all over the world to US cities deemed International Economic Zones LIKE BALTIMORE----so these same demographics we see in the UK will exist in the US in just two decades. This coming economic collapse with long-term recession/depression will send most US citizens into unemployment while building of global corporate campuses and global factories in US cities like Baltimore----will see tons of immigrants brought to do this work next decade.
Meanwhile, all those POSING FEEL THE BERN Clinton/Obama neo-liberals are going to advance this 1% Libertarian Marxism -----pretending to be feeling the pain of American citizens being thrown into poverty and pretending to support old-fashion American social democracy when their goal will be this MAO Chinese Marxism-----

UK's foreign-born population. Click image for graphic
Latest figures from the ONS show there are now 521,000 Polish-born residents of the UK - up from 75,000 in 2003.
It makes the Poles the biggest UK community by foreign nationality - and the second (after India) by country of birth. The figures came out as part of the comprehensive annual population survey, which (at least until the census results emerge next year) give us a real insight in the demographics of Britain.
Last week we mapped the different ethnic populations of England and Wales, these figures are a bit different. Obviously, all they comprise of are details of the country of birth and the passport each person holds. So, while Indian-born residents may be more likely to gain British nationality, people from Poland people wouldn't need to, as members of the European Union.
The figures also give a fascinating breakdown of the top foreign-born population for each region of the UK. They include details such as:
• The Phillipines is responsible for the fifth biggest foreign-born population in Wales - 6,000 people
• Germany is the fifth biggest foreign-born population in the UK, with 290,000 people
• The biggest percentage of foreign-born people in the UK is in Brent - 54.2%
• Polish-born residents are either the biggest or second biggest foreign-born populations in eight regions of the UK, and biggest in Scotland and Wales
• Since Poland and seven other central and Eastern European countries (collectively known as the A8) joined the EU in May 2004 around 69 per cent of all A8 citizens migrating to the UK have been Polish citizens
• London has 123,000 Polish-born residents, 24 per cent of the UK total
We've gone for country of birth rather than nationality on these pages because it gives a real sense of the patchwork nature of Britian today - but you could equally well do the same thing with country of nationality - and the full data is below.
There is huge variation across England and Wales - the graphic below shows the percentage of foreign-born population by different parts of the UK.

We'd like to hear from you on this. Are you one of the 521,000 Poles living in the UK now, or do you come from the Philippines and live in Wales? How closely do the stats reflect your experience?
The full data is below. What can you do with it?
Here you see the UK citizens becoming that global labor pool-----having become ex-pats in large numbers these few decades trying to find a better life than that created by Wall Street global corporate neo-liberal International Economic Zone policies in UK. The same now happened in Ireland these several years as Ireland was imploded with the subprime mortgage and banking frauds and economic crash of 2008. Ireland now has this same global immigrant pool of labor coming in and replacing Irish citizens.
So, this is the goal of US Congressional Wall Street global pols and CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA and of course a HILLARY OR TRUMP will keep the same policies MOVING FORWARD. Americans will be told as John Kerry said above----JUST GET OVER IT.

The last decade has seen a significant rise in British people opting to move abroad for a better lifestyle. In 2006 an estimated 207,000 British Nationals emigrated, this is now at an all time high, with numbers of this scale not seen since before the 1st World War. The most popular destinations for British ex-pats are France, Spain, Australia and New Zealand, with over 50% choosing these countries to emigrate to.
More Brits live abroad than other nation, so why is this? What is it about Britain that is making so many of us leave to set up life in another country? In the last twenty years more opportunity's have become available which now makes it easier for many Brits to move abroad, who before could only dream of another life in the sun. There are many factors influencing ex-pats decisions to move abroad and start a new life.
One of the overwhelming factors which encourage Brits to move abroad is the dismal weather which blights the UK. Although the UK has beautiful countryside and stunning beaches, the weather permits how often we get to enjoy these delights. Even in summer months there is no guarantee that we can plan a picnic or a day out to the beach, as more often than not the weather will destroy our best laid plans. Countries such as Greece, Spain, France and Italy have beautiful warm summer days and balmy nights where they can enjoy visits to the beach, evening strolls along the harbour and dining al-fresco at home or outdoor restaurants. When we see British people drinking coffee, shivering on outdoor patio's, it is not difficult to see why a move to a warmer country is so appealing for many.
Often the cost of living in many foreign countries is a contributing factor for many Brits when considering a move abroad. Many skilled professionals find that they can earn more than they do in the UK with better working conditions, such as less working hours, less tax and private health care schemes. Many ex-pats have noticed an improvement in their leisure time with a better balance between their working life and social life. The majority of Mediterranean countries such as Spain and Italy have relaxed working hours and often enjoy siesta's during the hotter time of the day. Eating out and day to day living is often also less expansive in many of these countries than in Britain.
The combination of less working hours and more leisure time has dramatically improved the quality of life for many ex-pats living abroad. According to a report by the Daily Mail, nine out of ten Brits living abroad said their quality of life has improved since leaving the UK. Often the way of life is much slower and relaxed than Britain where everyone appears to be rushing around. Many ex-pats commented that their life was now much less stressful than it had been in the UK.
Although a large proportion of Brits emigrating abroad are retired people hoping for a warmer and relaxing climate to live, families and younger people are now also making the move to up and leave the UK for good. Increased crime rates and anti-social behavior in nearly all towns in the UK is a worry for many and often a reason that many are now looking for a safer life abroad. In many cities throughout the UK, gang culture has increased with more knife and gun crimes been committed than ever before. Glasgow and London both have high crime rates compared to most other European cities. Many people feel unsafe on the streets of the UK and are now opting for a safer life for their family in a country with less crime and a better quality of life. Countries like Greece and Italy have a stronger family ethic then we appear to have in the UK, which is an attraction for many when moving abroad.
In addition to the rising crime throughout cities in the UK, an increase in rules and regulations in the British society is also beginning to have a negative effect on many people. This is especially true of young people who are looking for adventure and willing to try out another lifestyle abroad in a country which appears to be more welcoming and less dictating than the UK. For many of us disheartened by the British society it can often feel that we are told what we must eat, how much to drink and where we can smoke. For some the country has now become too politically correct and we are often afraid to open our mouths for fear we offend someone when we speak.
Whether it be Europe, Asia, Africa or Australia it appears that the British are unsatisfied with their lives in the UK and will continue in their search for the perfect life away from miserable and wet Britain.
Did you know:
1) In 2011 it was reported that 1000 people are leaving the UK every day in search of warmer climates and a higher standard of living.
2) Of these 1000 people, over 40% are British Citizens.
3) Recent reports suggest that there are presently 3.4 million British people living abroad, which is 7% of the British population.
4) 15% of these Brits living abroad are classified as skilled professionals, such as doctors, paramedics and lawyers.
5) One of the contributing factors why people are leaving the UK is the increase in house prices and cost of living. In London in 2011 the average price of a house was over 400,000 pounds which is making it difficult for many young people to get on the property ladder.
6) Many wealthy Britons are now considering moving abroad due to high taxes and increased crime. 19% of British Citizens with savings of over a quarter of a million have said they would consider moving abroad.
7) Of those wealthy Britons questioned, 46% have cited crime and anti-social behaviour as the most popular reason for wanting to move.
8) 41% of the wealthy Britons believe life is more stressful in the UK than other European countries, which have a slower, more relaxing pace to life.
9) The foreign embassy has reported an average of 4000 visa applications per week for people wishing to move abroad, compared with just 300 per week ten years ago.
