I <3 the House of Lords

So in touch with the people...

The Lords have decided that the idea of immigrants filling employment holes in the country is 'fundamentally flawed'. It's good to know that blind patriotism still exists within one of the most prejudiced houses in the country. Indeed, there are huddled masses of people sitting on the dole, just waiting for an opportunity to do some backbreaking labour that pays less than said dole to further Great Britain.

I am, of course, being sarcastic. Britain has always used cheap foreign labour. We probably will continue to do. In this case (i.e. the modern world) I think people should be able to come from wherever they want as long as they work and pay taxes. It's a dog eat dog world, and if someone who doesn't even speak English as a first language can get a job over some lazy fuckhead from this country, then power to them.

The establishment sending out mixed messages doesn't help, though. Not to sound hypocritical, but I'd prefer it if more nurses spoke English as a first language. But thanks to the government's poor preparation and 'reap-what-we-didn't-sew-from-other-countries' strategy on nurse recruitment, that doesn't look likely any time soon. So less immigrants, except for nurses and who else, I wonder, House of Lords?
