In theory Brexit has nothing to do with Muslim refugees. In practice it has everything to do with them. Germany took in about 1,000,000 refugees. You really don't think the UK would have been under severe pressure to take some of the refugees from Germany, not to mention from the other side of the Chunnel in France?

Any immigrant group holds onto certain cultural traditions, but they are almost always non-issues for anyone around them. For example the older Italian immigrant women always wore black once widowed, but their daughters didn't do the same when they lost their husbands.

Ignoring the recent European influx of Muslims bringing their rape culture and violence from the old world with them, there are vast numbers of 3rd generation Muslims in places like Germany and France who have not even begun to assimilate. Instead they have created "no go" zones where they live.
Nuff said, nothing more to see here.

a million refugees. LOL. So long Germany, it was nice knowing you. Those one million refugees will do more damage to Germany than the Allies did during WW2.

LOL..... That was entirely untrue. The Irish and Catholic immigrants segregated themselves and created their ethnic enclaves.

Read a book..... Christ.....

The biggest issue is there are too many dumb Americans who don't know their history. We are relieving the late 19th/early 20th century all over again.

Anjem Choudary (who appears in the OP's video) is now serving five and a half years in prison, most of his small group of followers have also met the same fate, whilst Islamic Fundamentalst groups are outlawed under terror laws.

The Security Service (MI5) generally watch such radicals every movement and every text, email or phone calls are recorded.

As for the EU we were never part of the Schengen Agreement, however taking back control of immigration policy is an important reason for Brexit, and why many people voted for it.

David Cameron had promised to hold a Brexit referendum way before the refugee crisis gained momentum.

I am not British but the impression I get is that there has long been skepticism toward the European Union and the way Brussels was seen to be interfering in British affairs.

Having said that, if I was British and I saw the way that Germany, the largest country in the EU, was acting so irresponsibly, then I would probably vote Brexit myself.

Approx 15 years ago we were in a mid size German city and it was like being in a different country than Germany. At least 40% or more of the people in the street were muslims with traditional Muslim clothes on and speaking Arabic. That was prior to taking in the 1,000,000 refugees!

Steering is not a word they know in Europe as muslims automatically move close to each other and don't like to be helped by non muslims unless it is getting free items or free money from the government.

They create their own "country" within a different country.

Look at Somalia neighborhoods in America where they all start to live close to each other's d where the mall attacker also lived. This is a fact and people who are naive will stay naive and aren't open for reality.

This morning I saw on tv a statement that President Trump needs to sell his ban to the public but what a ridiculous statement as the left will only agreeing they get life time freebies and the rest is already for making America safe again.
