Doing the jobs we won't do?

JOB-seekers in Cambridgeshire are being turned away because they do not speak Polish, an MP claims.

Malcolm Moss, MP for North East Cambridgeshire, revealed constituents had told him they had been refused work in the fens on the grounds they would not fit in with other factory workers, who were all migrant workers from Poland.

He slammed the practice as "obvious discrimination".

He said: "A woman came to my surgery and said: 'My daughter went to an agency to get a job and was told by the gang-master: 'If you don't speak Polish I can't put you on the assembly line, because they all speak Polish. They won't accept you, and you won't be able to communicate with them anyway.'

A few issues I have with this:

1. I thought they were doing the jobs Brits won’t do? That’s obviously bullshit because these people wanted to work but were refused.

2. If these people can’t speak English they shouldn’t be here in the first place. It’s about time all those who can’t speak English are banned from working in this country.

Hat tip: Battle for Britain.
