Total garbage, particularly the first bit suggesting it was simply immigrants voting Labour into power.robschneider wrote: ↑
The immigrants kept them in power. Invite 'em over, subsidise their lifestyle, who else are they going to vote for? Helped get Labour a third term in the short run (they must have expected a caning over Iraq) but in the long run I think the tide turned and it sowed the seeds of today's issues. I think in particular during the 2009 jobs crisis there was a feeling of "they took our jobs" - I'm not saying that happened, but perfectly well skilled people couldn't get arrested whilst immigrants seemed to be alright Jack. I genuinely think that came back to bite in 2016.
“They took our jobs” was a nonsense rhetoric pushed by the right wing press, it’s never been true and now we’re seeing a huge workers shortage across many low paid industries, largely thanks to Brexit.
