Immigration

I see that Migration Watch UK (which describes itself as both a non-political body and a think-tank, despite abundant evidence to the contrary) has produced a report which suggests that Eastern European immigrants are taking jobs from British youths. Chairman Sir Andrew Green claims that these migrant workers are able to fill the positions available simply because they are well-educated, have a strong work ethic and are prepared to work for low wages.

If this is true then it is truly disgraceful: we in Britain have a long and rich history of slacking through school and then just taking any job, showing up late and looking to coast through the working day with some ill-conceived sense of entitlement. If these Johnny foreigner types can’t adapt to our culture then they just should go back to where they came from.

About Fles

Early middle-aged (oh yes I am!), no longer long-haired but still speccy and decidedly still an increasingly opinionated git. I’m basically a believer in individualism, that everybody has their own perspective and inner-beauty. I try to find humour in every situation. I enjoy reading and writing poetry.
