Labour to deal with immigration the wrong way

Labour will today promise to belatedly close the door to low-skilled workers from the Third World amid evidence migrants are forcing Britons out of jobs.

Immigration Minister Liam Byrne will say enough immigrants are flooding into the UK from Eastern Europe to fill vacancies in agriculture and other low-paid jobs.

The Government expects Eastern Europeans and other EU nationals will fill jobs in restaurants, building sites and agriculture.

More than 600,000 Eastern Europeans have already flocked here since EU expansion on May 1, 2004. Hundreds of thousands more are expected to follow when Bulgaria and Romania join next year.

It took them nine years to figure it out and they are going about the solution the wrong way. They say that Eastern Europeans are the biggest problem yet they only ban the none-eastern Europeans. Does that sound like idiocy to anyone else or is it just me? It’s the logical equivalent of curing the problem of crime by only arresting the fast drivers and leaving the murderers, rapists and paedophiles. Oops shouldn’t have said that, they might actually do it.
