Just stumbled on the video of the 15 years old BENSON dude ok UK border force.

Where that guy dey sef? What is the deal with Indians, Pakistanis and Afghans crazy appetite to enter the UK Illegally?

Even the UK border people no get work oooo chasing after illegals like their life depends on it? Do these illegals cause that much of economic problem in the UK or the UK is just not a friendly place?

Calling them clandestines cheesy Just seem racist to me.

Can someone send me a link of videos with illegal Nigerians busted by immigration


I don't think it's all about the economic issues around illegal immigrants. What about the security concerns, see what's happening in Nigeria with Malians, Nigeriens, Sudanese going in and out of the country unknown. If you don't stem it, you're tacitly encouraging more people to use the route.

@ralphjean, I believe you are more than eligible. You can go through a mortgage broker and it makes application very much easy. Although just selected banks accept Tier 2 visa Halifax, Santander and Natwest (according to mine).

I am currently using one which the service is free of charge and they get paid from the bank. All this will be stated on the AIP eventually.

For deposit, some people do joint contributions (ajo) to raise this, if not feasible for you then try have a property budget and start saving the 5% of that based on a monthly target.

Obviously if you have a partner this will be much easier as you can pull resources together. You are also eligible for HTB which is govt *Equity* loan which helps add 20% interest to your deposit.

The HTB is interest free for 5 years but beware govt owns 20% of your property. This isn't as bad as it sounds and the mortgage brokers will advise you better. They will also assist with your HTB application and any information you need.

N.B- Btw, your parent can also gift you the deposit. Something called *gifted deposit*. Some banks accept friends gifting it as well to get you on the property ladder

Thanks so much

I am moving to Birmingham soon, what part of the city? So I can avoid those areas. grin

My bad, actually it happened in 2005 in Huyton, Merseyside which is in Liverpool and the 18 year old Jamaican kid was murdered when he was smashed in the head with an ice pick shown in the picture below by a 20 year old named Paul Taylor and a 17 year old kid named Michael Barton, aged 17 (who is a brother of former Manchester City footballer Joey Barton - currently the manager of League One side Bristol Rovers). .

Below are some links to the murder. The independent article aptly has the title :- The killing of Anthony: The boy who died because of the colour of his skin

On a personal note I sometimes feel my father in-law is racist when he is drunk because of the constant jokes about Nigerian scammers other things Nigerian but then I blame the shayo

You may not be far from the truth there. I once lived in a shared house with a white lady (Ex Army) who told me her Ex Husband was racist towards their own grand daughters who happened to be mixed race and he would call his own grand-daughters the "N" word and after this lady mentioned this same story to me on more than a few occasions, I began to suspect that she just wanted to use the opportunity to say the "N" word in front of a black person if not to the black person. So any time I sensed she wanted to steer the conversation in that direction, I steered it the other way and at some point I had to tell her to stop saying that word in my presence even if it was a story about her racist Ex husband and she stopped afterwards.

Remember you are outnumbered in that house. Boyfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend mother na co. Just move Biko before you become statistics God forbid

They will even take sides with one another and blatantly lie to the Police that you were at fault and they may even conspire to say that you punched him first but your own punch was not caught on camera. Just move out of that place in peace like yesterday and move to a house with fewer people as any shared house with more than 3 or 4 people is always full of rancour and the flash points tend to be the shared areas like kitchen, fridge, washing machine, corridors and bathroom.

In one of the shared houses I had lived in the past, i was cooking one day and an oyinbo co-tenant came to put some camphor in the kitchen as my soup was deemed to have an offensive smell to her.

In another case, a 16 year old Eastern European girl came to my face eyeball to eyeball and called me a "prick" for daring to tell an older Jamaican man (also a co-tenant) that her Mum is fond of littering the shared kitchen floor with cooked food droppings and she would also buy raw fish and instead of wrapping it and putting it in the freezer, she would put the "raw fish" straight into the fridge where it could contaminate other tenants cooked food and the little brat (16 year old girl) came out of the bathroom, looked me eyeball to eyeball in the presence of the elderly Jamaican man and called me a "prick". I took the cue that it was time for me to stop living in shared houses and within 30 days, I moved out and into a 1 bedroom flat and since then I have and will never live in a shared house again as the hassles are just too much.

He's not a racist, its his brother thats the racist based on what you have just said. being called a racist is a strong word.

Actually it is racist for a white guy to call a black guy an Ape a Monkey and saying he is dragging his knuckles like an Ape a Monkey.

Whatever happened before or after would not be an excuse to call a black man an Ape and in the past, Black Premiership footballers have justifiably walked off the pitch and the football match halted to respect them because some fans in the crowd start making monkey chants any time the black footballer gets the ball or they will throw a banana onto the pitch in front of the black player.

Agreed that his brother made the first racist comment and the housemate might have been offended at being called racist hence his punch (which is still assault anyway you look at it) but for a white guy to then go further and call a black man an Ape and say he is dragging his knuckles like an Ape is blatantly racist although if the poster had made the first equally racist comment towards the white guy or had responded with a racist comment of his own, then it may be classed as 2 fighting (do me I do you) but if the poster did not make any racist comment towards the white guy then its blatant racism although seeing that they are housemates and were formerly friends, "things" could have been said between the 2 of them in the past that we are not privy to.

No just try am. If you do and get caught in the act or on tape then you could be charged with any of the following offences :- Outraging Public Decency (Criminal Justice Act 2003 - could result in an unlimited fine or prison terms, Indecent Exposure (Sexual Offences Act 2003) - Punishment can range from a fine to a maximum 2 years prison sentence, Penalty Notice for Disorder - PND (Section 5 of Public Order Act 1986) - This is the likeliest course of action of a police officer who catches someone urinating in public. PNDs are used by officers to deal with low level, anti-social and nuisance behaviour. A fine of £50 or £80 is issued, to be payed within 21 days of receipt of the notice.
Finally, public urination is usually including in the by-laws of individual local authorities under Section 235 of the Local Government Act 1972. Punishable by a fine of up to £500 (Level 2).

@mamatukwas
Thanks. My capacity never reach o. I’m still a student of life. Should have responded earlier but @Justwise comments were quite troubling. Led me to do a lot of soul searching. I can always recommend this book - The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve Bank by G Edward Griffin.

@Kode12
I don’t know how familiar you are with Napstars (against record labels), Netflix (against blockbusters and Hollywood) and other disruptors, but just like crypto, they had major opposition but today, we see the result of their disruption (iTunes etc.). The birth of the internet (Internet 1.0) led to the democratisation of information. We didn’t need institutions to decide what, where and how in terms of information we received. The birth of blockchain technology is Internet 2.0 and it is the democratisation of financial assets. We wouldn’t need governments or institutional banks telling us when and where and on what we should spend our money (not currency).

@Giltwise
Thanks. I used to be a full time academic. I’m now more interested in pursuing money (not currency) nowadays. In the words of my senior colleague, last, last, academics na scam. I tend to agree more with him more nowadays. Sincerely speaking, unfolding events everyday are scary and if we eventually have full blown socialism here in the west, then China/North Korea will be a child’s play. We can always look to Adolf Hitler as one case study of what can happen and of course 1984 by George Orwell. I wish you well in these uncertain times.

@Justwise
Your comments were quite shocking and troubling. When you say vaccination should be compulsory, on whose orders? Where was I consulted? Governance is a product of a constitution, and every constitution (they say the UK doesn't have one) derives its powers from The PEOPLE. Check out the common opening statement of most constitutions and it’s – “WE THE PEOPLE…” It thus means that products cannot be that powerful in deciding what happens to their source. Governments that have tried this have usually failed at the end (through revolutions). In governance we have what is called co-production where end-users or affected users are involved in the evolution of policies to ensure majority buy-in. You see this in the development of new technology products or even beauty-wares were producers send out samples to select clients who use these products and send back reviews/feedback before final production that integrates this feedback.

We can’t have a perfect utopia, but we can have one that achieves justice and equity. We must ensure that injustices whether procedural, distributive or recognition to a large extent can be mitigated through actions that discourage oligarchy and encourages inclusion/participation. Leadership isn’t a command and rule structure neither is it dictatorial. The use of fear tactics (like you alluded to how deadly the virus is) doesn’t obviate the need for proper procedure in achieving buy-in. We have seen over time that the use of fear mongering has only ended up in eroding citizens’ rights and making governments more powerful. Individual rights and preferences should always be respected especially where we don’t have majority buy-in.

To other matters.
I will leave select extracts from The Story of OJ by Jay Z. Please understand that what’s going on – inflation, massive quantitative easing (QE/MMT) and fear mongering (climate change, lockdowns etc.) is only benefitting a unique class of people – governments, large corporations, banks and the very rich (top 0.1%). They are moving money from your hands (via inflation) and eroding your rights (via fear mongering). Keep your eyes open and stay WOKE. (not leftist)

Light nigga, dark nigga, faux nigga, real nigga
Rich nigga, poor nigga, house nigga, field nigga
Still nigga, still nigga

I told him, "Please don't die over the neighborhood
That your mama rentin'
Take your drug money and buy the neighborhood
That's how you rinse it"

You wanna know what's more important than throwin' away money at a strip club? Credit
You ever wonder why Jewish people own all the property in America?
This how they did it

I bought some artwork for one million
Two years later, that sh*t worth two million
Few years later, that sh*t worth eight million
I can't wait to give this sh*t to my children

Y'all out here still takin' advances, huh?
Me and my niggas takin' real chances, uh
Y'all on the 'Gram holdin' money to your ear
There's a disconnect, we don't call that money over here, yeah

Personal musings – was Jay Z throwing shades at Nina Simone
Skin is, skin, is
Skin black, my skin is black
My, black, my skin is yellow

I really don't know why my comment troubled you , but don't worry you will go back on what you have written here pretty soon.

Vaccination will become a requirement just like covid test and you will not be allowed to do a lot of stuff if you are not fully vaccinated.

And guess what? There is nothing you can do about it, you will end you getting fully vaccinated just like we are all forced to wear mask and isolate.
