Hey folks - want to know why you are unemployed ?
Because the immigrants have taken all the jobs.
You cant call me a racist for saying this - its a fact, its just that the government lied to you about the real figures and you were moronic enough to believe what this lying sack of shit government told you.
In the recession, it's a bigger subject than ever because the layoffs are hitting British- born people hardest.
Strip out the public sector and do you know how many new jobs have gone to British workers since 1997?
Zero. Squat. Nada. In fact, there are fewer UK-born workers in the private sector than 12 years ago.
This staggering information is not published, anywhere. I asked the Office for National Statistics specifically.
In the last year there are 119,000 more migrant workers in UK jobs, but 615,000 fewer UK-born workers. In recent months, both are falling. But UK-born workers are being laid off at five times the rate.
I blame the system that keeps out people trapped on benefts. And the conditions that inspire 1,000 Brits to emigrate EVERY DAY - leaving their job filled by newcomers.
That's not the whole story, but a major part of it. Still you'll struggle to hear ANY minister explain any of it.
You'll hear clichés like "there are as many Brits working in Europe as there are Europeans in Britain".
Worse still, some ministers actually believe this. Take Alan Johnson, now Home Secretary and in charge of it all.
He told me a few months ago that there are 1.5 million Brits working in Europe. SEVEN times the real figure.
And I'm not saying Johnson is especially ignorant. Just that the whole of government has its head in the sand.
One employment minister swore to me that immigrants account for two per cent of jobs. Real figure? Fourteen per cent.
Does it matter if immigrants have taken (or created) all the new jobs in the British private sector? I reveal this in my News of the World column today, as the key fact from a data request I made from the ONS. It’s a divisive topic, and even exploring it make ministers feel uncomfortable. But this ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ approach to immigration has not just given the BNP the political space needed for its electoral breakthrough three weeks ago, but left ministers ignorant about what’s going on in our labour market. Between Q1 of 1997 and Q1 of 2009, immigrants account for 106% of new jobs in the private sector – ie, there are more new workers (1.55m) than new jobs (1.47m).
