What you often see here are people who feel, rightly or wrongly, ignored and marginalized by their own Government. Many people in England feel helpless and hopeless; alienated by what is happening to their country. Largely this is the fault of politicians and a metropolitan liberal left elite who make decisions on our behalf. They have created a client state which has threatened the vary fabric of this democracy. There are so many issues; and you must be aware that people have other concerns regarding crime, freedom of speech, identity, The EU, loss of sovereignty, massive national or personal debt, poor quality state education etc etc. Now I understand that sitting on the beach in the French colony of Martinique or the South of France can be a pleasant experience. I understand that reading some of the views expressed here on MyT can come as quite a shock from this perspective. But then I also know that you occasionally descend into Peckham or elsewhere so you must realize that people have every right to feel helpless and hopeless. Strangely enough, I do not think you care about these people. In my opinion your concerns are with those who will guage the greatest politically correct value from your compassion - Burmese women notwithstanding.
