There are good people in every race

Some have more than others. The Asian described below has made himself a good citizen of Britain.

However the question arises, does a country allow in a multitude of racial aliens simply because there are a few good apples among them. Bring in too many and no matter how good they are you will still lose your racial identity and become second class citizens.

My best wishes to the Asian in the following article but the U.K. must stop the immigration of all racial aliens and do something about those that are there, and in particular those who express themselves as anti British.

Asian postmaster takes immigration stand by banning customers who can't speak English

There's a huge Union Flag flying proudly outside Deva Kumarasiri's house and it's been there so long the edges are tattered and torn.
Nearby, another one flutters from the back of his favourite Land Rover as he drives to work as the local cornershop postmaster.
In case it's not immediately clear, the Sri Lankan born father of two - who fulfilled a dream to come this country 17 years ago and took citizenship to make his life here - is proud to be British.

Mind your language: Sri Lankan-born postmaster Deva Kumarasiri has refused to serve customers who can't speak English

So proud, in fact, that he's insisting all his fellow immigrants embrace our culture and pride with the same enthusiasm as he does.
Mr Kumarasiri, who taught his two young daughters every word of the National Anthem and is encouraging them to join the RAF when they grow up, introduced a controversial new regime at his post office counter.
If his customers can't be bothered to learn English, he tells them, they must go away and learn it before he serves them.
His bold stand against non-integration has sent a shudder of political correctness down whatever spine the post office has these days, and infuriated some local do-gooders who accused him of inciting division among the community.
But even a few minutes spent with the 40-year-old Liberal Democrat councillor is about all it takes to establish that his motives are pure - and that he's driven only by a passion for the country he loves so much.
'Nobody stands up for anything in Britain any more,' he said.
'It's the best country in the world as far as I'm concerned, but the great country I once called Great Britain has changed a lot since I came here. All I'm doing is telling people that if they want to live in Britain, be British.

'Don't boo our soldiers when they come home from Iraq. Don't live your life without embracing our culture. Don't stay here without making any effort to learn the language. And if you don't want to be British, go home.'
Mr Kumarasiri runs the sub-post office inside a corner shop in Sneinton, an inner city area of Nottingham that boasts a diverse ethnic mix. He became so weary at of customers expecting to be served without uttering a word of English that he took to telling them to go away and learn the language.

It's not exactly a ban, he says, because they keep coming back anyway. But he tells those who make no effort to speak English they will need an interpreter if he is to give them a proper standard of service.
'Our laws are written in English; our culture is chronicled in English. How can anybody understand that if they can't understand English?

'I tell them if they don't speak the language and they can't be bothered to learn, then don't bother coming here. It's up to them whether they take any notice - but if they want to live here in Britain, they should take notice.'
Mr Kumarasiri, whose wife is a nurse, likes to call his regular customers 'duck' and 'dear', following local tradition.
'The fabric of the nation begins to unravel if we don't all speak the same language. You can't be wholly part of British culture if you don't speak the language.
'When I left Sri Lanka I left behind that country's culture, customs and language. I have done my utmost ever since to be part of this country's culture. There are far too many people who come here and expect Britain to change to suit them.
'An Asian woman came in here yesterday and I insisted that she spoke to me in English.. She replied that she preferred to speak in her mother tongue, but I told her that Britain was now her motherland and therefore she should speak English.
'I believe 95 per cent of the immigrant population actually want to be British. It's the five per cent minority spoiling it for the majority. And if things don't change then we'll start seeing second and third generations of immigrants who can't speak English.

They wouldn't be able to get jobs and we would see ghettos and all the problems that come with them.'
As we talk in his shop, an Eastern European woman silently presents a 299 benefit cheque at the counter to be cashed. A Pakistani man - berated earlier by Mr Kumarasiri for not speaking English, smiles as he struggles with 'please' and 'thank you'.
'White people can't say what I'm saying because they'd end up in jail,' he explains.
'I decided to make this stand because I think too many British people are afraid to talk out.

'If they insist on everyone speaking English they are afraid of being branded a racist or being accused of belonging to the BNP.

I don't expect immigrants to be fluent in English overnight. Lots of people struggle to master another language but they get much more respect if they at least try. I'm not being a racist, just a realist.'
Mr Kumarasiri grew up in a village outside the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo and learned English at school.
He always dreamed of coming to England and worked in  a filling station, warehouse, shops and another post office before taking over this one in Sneinton, home town of Salvation Army founder William Booth.
He met his wife, Durga, here and both his daughters, Shahani, ten, and Heshini, 8, were born here.
He took a 'pointless, stupid British citizenship test' at which he was asked questions such as what age he needed to be to buy cigarettes in Britain, and holds a British passport.
Back in his native Sri Lanka, he said, people were still proud to be associated with their former colonial ruler.

'Still we have the pride that Britain left behind,' he said.

'The laws are still there, the schools are still there. The kids have courtesy. They have discipline.. Here, all that is gone. Let's bring it back.'
