NightStalker,
The article you like to, refers to much the same Affirmative Action program we have here. It's really nothing new.
I disagree with it, totally.
But you know, if you guys over there don't want her, I'll take her. She just needs to lose the braces for her teeth. Other than that, she is kinda cute. For what I'd like to do with her, I feel she would suit the bill perfectly fine.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
My sister has lived in Scotland for the past 6 years, untill very recently coming back to live in the United States with her Scottish husband.
For her moving there, it was quite simple. Moving her husband back here in the US, that posed much more of a problem. Definately the US is much more strict on immigration policies.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Why is it though, Britain has such a dislike for the Irish? It seems the Scots don't like them, the English don't like them...
I've been to Ireland myself. To me, they seem like perfectly nice people

Probably the same reason you "don't like" canadians, we "don't like" swedes (almost married one once tho), the french "don't like" the belgians aso...

DJB its Irish gipsies I don't like. Irish people are okay. The gipsies are a race apart. As far as I can make out they have been chucked out of Ireland. They have swarmed over here setting up illegal camp sites and making life hell for normal people. Then can you believe it ,when there are attempts to move them on, they complain that their Human Rights are being infringed and go to the European parliament. Can you believe this, they then get legal aid to finance the case. I am speaking from experience. Before we moved here we lived close to the largest site in Europe. I would love the smell of Napalm in the morning for them.

Seems all the problems come from the immigrants who are too arrogant to bother learning the language. It's quite irritating to see it but it happens here as well, people that live here for years and never bother learning the language...

It's a fine balance though cause I can understand why the immigrants might want to hold some traditions with them in their new country but within reason... I mean boohoo, I don't get to speak much Romanian anymore, am I going to fight to make it a third language in Canada? Nooooooo.

Sooo, Bago, any chance your friends own vineyards? And maybe need some help over there?

sorry, mate, they're just holiday homes,-but the French take their agriculture very seriously...and their rights to enjoy the countryside.
The villages inland never regained their pre-war population,so property in areas like Lot and Limousin are still cheap-small vinyards can be had for around 500,000 USD...with a bit of a chateau and a couple of cottages....google "French Entree"...it's a good site with lots of links.
Young (under 40) farmers are encouraged with grants and very low interest loans. I know of at least one Brit who sold up his 3-generations farm (fed up with running on the spot) bought a French farm twice the size ,for the same money, re-equipped it with new tackle and was astounded to turn a profit in his first year!!!

less red tape,easier,laid back lifestyle respected in the community.

It's NOT the place if you like the bright lights,fashion clothes,fancy cars and stuff...go join the Paris rat-race.

I'll be able to post my impressions ,when I get back,-but I already have a very positive view based on feedback from those who HAVE experience.

In all my travels around the world, I have found that if you try to speak to the "locals" in their own language, the "vast majority" appreciate that fact and will help you.

The only languages I have had difficulty with was Greek and Turkish. I have rudimentary french, reasonable German. Prior to going to Italy for a 5 day trade show I paid to do a 6 week night class in Italian. Before I went to a recent trade show where I would be meeting our Japanese contacts I bought tapes in Japanese so I could greet them in their own language.

The problem we have here in the Uk is that these "new europeans" come to work in this country, send most of their money back to their own country, refuse to learn the language (apart from Asylum, House, Money etc) and really think they get hard done by because we resent them !

On my salary, it is impossible for me to get on the housing ladder, for me to even get on the housing list for a council house its now an 8 year waiting list and its getting longer because of these "asylum seekers". I am currently having to rent at 87% of my monthly pay.

Am I annoyed ? You bet your a$$ I am !!

My language base,
English of course,
Basic/ conversational Spanish
Basic/comprehensive (somewhat, formerly conversational German
Elementary Czech (Czech is rated as the 3rd most difficult language in the world to learn.
I've also read a few Russian language course books, but I retained NOTHING. Russian is too damn hard!

The German is useless, as every German I know speaks excellent English. (My sister doesnt believe German is useless, for some reason she chose to get a MASTERERS DEGREE in GERMAN!!!! :confused

Czech is useless, unless you decide to someday live in the Czech Republik.

Spanish. Even becomes more and more useful everyday, even right here in the United States.
When I visited Italy and Sardenia, Spanish came in handy.
As I ran into taxi drivers and such that didnt speak a word of English, they could get a "little something" from the Spanish I spoke, as there are quite a many similarities between the 2 languages. I'd say, more especially in Sardenia, as there local dialect, is obviously heavily influenced by Spanish.

English.
I don't think there is a single place in Europe, or even in the middle east, that there WONT be a large group of citizens that speak English.

Except maybe in Turkey, as the only English I have heard in Turkey was, "My friend My friend, American! I have very special price for you" I LOVE Turkey! (except it makes me very sleepy )
