Labour 'left The British Working Man Screwed By Cheap Labour', Says Roger Daltrey

Recommended Posts

Labour 'left the British working man screwed by cheap Labour', says Roger Daltrey

Daltrey, now 67, has told how the influx of thousands of immigrant workers from the rest of Europe during Labour’s 13-year reign left the indigenous working-classes unemployed.

The star told how the last government left ‘the British working man screwed like he'd never been screwed before by cheap labour coming in from Europe.’

He went on: ‘We do need immigration, but surely it should be a level playing field where they can't undercut every working–class bloke in England for their jobs.’

However the current Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government were not spared his ire either, with Daltrey adding: ‘The quality of our politicians is tragic.’

He continued: ‘I don't care what people say about me. I tell it like it is, and, if I'm wrong, I'll just say, 'OK, I'm wrong.' I'm not always the most diplomatic person. I know my faults, but I'm comfortable with me.’

Daltrey also had harsh words for the machinations of the NHS.

The star has long been involved in charity the Teenage Cancer Trust. As a result, he has experienced the workings of the NHS.

He said: ‘You suddenly see the enormity and complexity of it, and the truth that no one wants to accept that there's nobody in charge.

‘Everyone knows it can't carry on, but you can't touch anything in the NHS because the nurses are in their trench, the doctors are in their trench, the unions are in their trench – it's the First World War.’

Indeed...the British working man went abroad buying up homes in Europe causing them to rise and screwing the woking class in those countries. He also insisted on taking a bit of Blighty culture with him.

The free movement of capital will correct things...just give it time

So you don't actually disagree with anything Daltry said then. If I get you right, you claim that in some karmic way the British Working Man deserved what they got (being screwed over by new labours deliberate lack of any immigration controls).

Well said. And no point in voting for a bunch of traitors that actively work to damage their own electorate. This spineless coalition is no better.

He seems like a decent caring bloke but I'm sure his words will go on deaf ears because it's not within the bbc's vision of wrecking the country.

Now the unions are running the country I couldn't give two hoots anymore, it's inevitable the people will vote labour again and they will continue with their scorched earth policies. There is no future for all. I'm staring down the face of a low interest, unaffordable property, unaffordable public sector future.

"it should be a level playing field where they can't undercut every working–class bloke in England for their jobs"

In what way is it not a level playing field?

I can think of a couple of examples but not much to justify the comment.

- For construction workers, they seem to need less proof of qualifications e.g. UK NVQs

- Immigrants less able to claim out-of-work benefits for a period so have to work.

Yup when the currency is hyper inflated away, you too can illegally go to say China or India and do the jobs they won't do for a pittance and return to be able to buy a huge mansion.

Sure you have to actually weigh your money by then but tis a small price to pay for an uber house price crash right?

We'll be fighting in the streets

With our children at our feet

And the morals that they worship will be gone

And the men who spurred us on

Sit in judgment of all wrong

They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution

Take a bow for the new revolution

Smile and grin at the change all around me

Pick up my guitar and play

Just like yesterday

And I'll get on my knees and pray

We don't get fooled again

Don't get fooled again

1. The incentive that immigrants have that the British working man does not .

I.e. work for less and live 10 to a house , but save enough money to set themselves up after a few years back in their HOME LAND .

2.Being able to claim child benefit for children back home which goes a lot further there than it does here.

3. Able to play the race card whether appropriate or not , a great tool to use on any occasion employers will run a mile rather than stand and fight their ground even if no racism has occoured.

4. Able to undercut the British worker on pay as the British worker has set a life style up from past earnings ( not nessasarily flash just average ) that will not be sustained by taking lower pay.

5. Have had great reviews in the media , i.e. newspapers, tv, radio, voiced by captains of industry , M.P.'s ect who sing their prasies above the British worker ( whether true or not ) this gives them a head start over the British worker who has often been accused of being lazy .

There is another 5 im sure I can think of some more.

Mr Daltry describes the symptoms quite well. But I notice he doesn't really understand the causes, nor the remedy. To be 100% honest, I'm not sure there is a workable solution.

Labour 'left the British working man screwed by cheap Labour', says Roger Daltrey

He just forgot to mention how he

1.screwed their pensions with his tax raid

2. Screwed them further by letting Harriet Harmens equality bill go through .

3. Screwed their wages by the inflation lies.

6. Enjoy the benefits of free health care and local ammenities despite having never paid a penny into the system.

edit: let me just spell that one out, sure they are paying tax on their income, but they should be behind in the queue for doctors visits from anyone (of any colour) who has lived, worked and paid their dues in Britain for say 10 years or more.

Had to phone into work one evening and take an emergency holiday as my hospital appointment ran over by two hours , the reason given was the department had had trouble with interpreters turning up late.

I do like Rog, I am a massive Who fan. He has always been quite sensible with his money, had to as Townshend wrote all the songs! He can come across a bit right wing sometimes but his heart is there, he cares about Britain and he has done so much for the teenage cancer trust. I can't afford to go to see him on his latest tour though, Far too much money for the normal working man.....

That's a shame , maybe you might have been able to afford it if your wages had not been undercut by cheap labour, inflation lies and higher rates on income tax.

If your vat had not gone up , your council tax and other essential cost's that might have also helped.

I think the essence of it has already been posted:

If an unemployed British worker takes a minimum wage or low paid job, they'll be worse off.

If an unemployed Pole does the same, they'll be better off.

It's that simple.

Socialism is loved by the idle and the idle generally are better off under a Labour government.

But the poor also got screwed over by the last Labour government too in a major way which will impact generations.

And yet interview seemingly anyone who lives north of Watford* on TV and back it comes "I'll be voting Labour. I've always voted Labour. They stand up for us, the working class" like it's some sort of badge their parents pinned on them which can't be removed even with surgery.

You just have to despair.

* I accept that's a bit of a sweeping generalisation, but it's always with a Northern accent.

Agreed. Just goes to show they're imbeciles to the core, though - dire state of non-functioning brain syndrome.

It's JUST like football fans.. they pick their team up from whoever their dad supports... and stick to it religiously without thought. Evil Tories, good old Labour... etc..
