If you think Canada is full of immigrant then don't immigrate there because you would be one of them!

OK, but look here this thread is months old and I'm buggered if I'm going to reread the whole thing just because some new member clearly hasn't bothered to read the whole thing either and therefore takes a comment which is as ironic as any old iron, out of context.

Then you pop up with an equally unfocused and inexplicable remark.

What's a man to do?

One chooses to immigrate to Canada because Canada imposes no obligation of assimilation; there's no obligation to invent nor subscribe to a "Canadian culture". One remains a Londoner (or in the case of the less fortunate, merely English) living abroad. It's all about the hyphenation.

Actually it's Wallington down the road but I preferred the alliteration.

To be fair the idea of escaping immigration by becoming one is so widely mentioned in the UK nowadays that it is not generally possible to use it ironically anymore.
