John Howard, the new German chancellor

I'm sure Johhny would fit right in. The ABC reports....
  • German chancellor Angela Merkel says her country's attempts to build a multicultural society have utterly failed.

    Mrs Merkel told a conference of young members of her Christian Democrats (CDU) party that allowing people of different cultural backgrounds to live side by side without integrating had not worked.

    "This approach has failed, utterly failed," she told the meeting in Potsdam, south of Berlin.
    She said too little had been required of immigrants in the past and said they should learn German in order to get by in school and have opportunities on the labour market.

    Anyone who does not immediately speak German, she said, is not welcome.
    The comments are the latest in an increasingly heated debate. Germany's president said two weeks ago that Islam was part of the country, but other political leaders have disagreed.

    Opinion polls indicate that there is much support for those who are uneasy about immigration.
How many laughs had you had at the silly citizenship questionnaire?

After having lived and worked in the shitty Arabic sand pit for nearly 10 years, I have to agree with the German Chancellor. The Arab national's I associated with were more than happy to state they (Islam) would take over the world with no shots fired. They don't want to integrate. Holland, France and Germany are finally waking up. do a google search for 'demographics' for a good you tube video.
