Many of which will be low paid, low skilled jobs with little future career development.

Pretty sure many immigrants who've just arrived here will fill the jobs, obviously British people prefer there benefits!

A bit presumptuous stating I'm looking down my nose at anyone! Just stating facts, that's all.

You allege that British people prefer to scrounge than to work. Are you British and if so are you a scrounger?

Are they low paid jobs, yes. Are they low skilled jobs, yes. Do they have little career development, yes. Hattrick of facts there in front of your eyes.

Yes, I am a British scrounger and proud of it. I don't want lazy boat people travelling thousands of miles on a rubber ring to pinch our scrounging opportunities.

I agree. I had to go to night school for three years to learn all the intricacies of the British way of scrounging. We don't want Johnn Foreigner coming over here with their work ethics and think they can go straight into scrounging without serving an apprenticeship. The first tradition that would fly out the window would be the "tea break". Keep Scrounging British!

There's a lot of work ethic down Eastwood way. Yeah right...
