‘British jobs for British workers’ – the truth

Minister 'appalled' by stats body

The Office of National Statistics chose to publish data with the main conclusion being that 1 in 9 workers in Britain were born abroad. The ONS chose to publish this at the height of the Lyndsey Oil Refinery dispute, which was quickly followed by the controversy of Olympics jobs being automatically handed to overseas workers, without even been advertised locally. Employment opportunities were the main reason cited by ministers for wanting to host the Olympics in the first place.

    Like Edwina Curry and her salmonella in eggs debacle, the truth always hurts. I will never forget Rhodes Boyson drinking water straight from the sea at southend when the condition of it’s beach and water was afronted (it’s in the bleedin’ Thames estuary for gods sake, half of Londons sh!te gets washed out there) and John SELWYN Gummer feeding his young daughter a burger straight from a burger van in the debacle about CJD (it’s always great using your very young children as political tools).

    Politicians eh !

  • The ONS also miss the obvious flaws. Putting aside foreign nationals that have UK-born offspring, what of those people born abroad that have UK parents? Mostly BF service personnel offspring serving abroad. Are these “foreigners” too? This includes me, and I’ve been here since 1974! Lies, damn lies and statistics.
