Those people who ... ( 8 months ago por Adi B)
Those people who are commenting things like Asians and blacks have taken
over well I just want to say one thing. What about USA, Australia, New
Zealand, South Africa, Canada and so on. Was those originally while people
countries, NO as the whiles killed most of the local people can took it
over. While people have been migrating to other countries and places for a
long time. Now it is the other way around and you are angry. Well I am sure
the red Indians didn't like their land being totally taken over by
Europeans. I am just saying stop judging people because of their colour and
just think of them as British.

i am a british born and i am a pakistani, fact is i was born here i grew up
here, and most likely i will live here for the rest of my life. if anyone
don't like it they can go fuck them selves, those days are gone when white
people could over power Black and Asian, now we black and asians dont take
that shit anymore, we throw it back in your face and will say to you ''is
that all you got''. my point is, Black, Asian, White, Red, Blue, Green
etc... what ever the colour it should not affect anyone,obviously there are
stupid prick Black and asian people who are the racist type, but you get
those type of people all over the country and the world. not all of us are
like that, many of us just want to work, pay our bills/taxes live with our
family and kids. we just want to live the peaceful life, that is what life
is about. at the end of the day we are all human, we bleed the same colour
blood, and we all have hearts that beat in the same way,
so for all those haters out there if you can't accept us then you can go
and fuck yourselves and go live in a land that is colourless.

Contrary to the historical revisionism of the BBC and other television
content providers, there was barely a black face to be seen anywhere in
Britain prior to the 1970's.
There are certainly none to be seen here.

Sigh. A beautiful video. As an Indian born in the seventies, I wish we
could turn back time to 1997 and re-elected John Major. Make no mistake,
every leader from Ted Heath has screwed this fine country and it's people
by allowing more and more in. Pakistani's and Muslims are the worst as they
have no respect for English culture or their beliefs. Yes, I'm Indian
however my parents never once made an issue about me learning Christianity
at school. Me and my brother would do weekly shopping for our English
neighbours because they were our friends.
Look at Small Heath, look at Aston, look at any area in Birmingham densely
populated by Muslims. They will drive every non Muslim out and take over
the area.
I long for the 80's. It was a magnificent country. Still, we will always
have the memories of good old Blighty.

At 0.36 into the video, I see a 'C' registered car. (AFC 164C) 'A'
registered cars were for 1963. C reg would therefore be 1965... So this
would have to be post 1965, yes? Just nit-picking really, 'cos it's a great
video. Thanks. (A Brummie!)

Hello, love the footage. Wondering is you might be able to help a fellow
indie doc maker. I'm in post production for my documentary Abandoned,
Adopted, Here. I'm looking for film footage of 60s Britain wondering you
would allow me to use some of the footage from your documentary?
Sadly I have no budget left (self funded the doc anyway) but full on screen
credit would be given.
Many thanks for you time.
You can see a teaser from my documentary
I'm on YouTube so please do drop me a message
Many thanks for you time

Old Birmingham looked much better than the new. Now Birnminghan is a trash

bark, do not know how to behave.
