No Politics or bad language please
Rea's and many more who came to the UK
A great thread Norman which reminds us of the debt that we owe to industrious, legal, immigrants from all over the world who formed businesses, got jobs, became doctors, nurses,pharmacists, lawyers etc etc by their hard work and made this country what it is.
Among them Mr Reyrolle of whom we speak so fondly for that great company that employed so many. The Rea's for their Ice Creams of our youth and the Abel's for their pork shops and many many more.
Of course nowadays we hear "they are stealing our jobs" when probably they are doing jobs that our youngsters wont take.
Of course we cant take everybody in but we should be proud to welcome new generations of legal entrants.
