The British empire existed to "civilize" the rest of the world.
It lingered after the ottoman empire ceased and so its influence will remain after. Which other language do they most likely speak Turkish, Italian or English? Why do you think this is the case? If you had the choice where would you rather live, in a place where you spoke nothing of the language and knew nothing of the country, or where you could get by and had some idea of the history of the place?

Albania - 4th most applications for asylum.
To my knowledge never part of British Empire - Ottoman to early 1900s - then Italy.
Sorry but can’t agree the sole reason asylum seekers head to U.K. is based on language.
English is (I’m guessing) second language in most European countries or at very least widely spoken, so don’t see why “language” would be a great influence on which country the asylum seeker heads for.
Furthermore I just can’t fathom why somebody fleeing persecution would risk jumping on a lorry/crossing the channel in a dinghy, generally putting their live at risk,because they may or may not speak English - English is widely spoken in the countries they have come through.

Asylum seekers come here because they know they can hold offshore bank accounts and fiddle their taxes.
Fair do’s :D

And of course the small matter that UK has been at the forefront of raizing and mass civilian murder in their own countries for the last 20 years.

Then of course UK borders are a turnstile with the continued flood in of rich Indians, rich Afghans, rich Hong Kongers, rich Russian oligarchs, rich Saudis,and rich and corrupt anyone else :lol:
Not forgetting the Odessa Files lol
What’s not to like :D

I thought Albania was one of the countries the Home Office wanted to set up a Rwandan type of arrangement before Rwanda.
