The immigrants are doing the jobs that the lazy white ****s can’t be bothered to do. They want 30k a year with no skills. Easier to sit at home, watch Sky and blame every **** else, that’s the problem

We are in a completely different economic environment now and I’m sorry but unless they are disabled and cannot work they need to get people contributing for their payment, make the work worthwhile again otherwise we going to have a majority sat of their ****ing arses, we cannot sustain that, at all

I bet the staff were shocked when they got it out and found a barely alive hamster still inside it too...

i’m not blaming europe for everything but’ i certainly believe our membership is causing a lot of problems that cannot be rectified’ unless we either leave or are at the very least given back our own laws’ border control and fishing rights for example, plus quite a few other points that make us as members left with our hands tied.
brexit was inevitable from many year back’ one of the main reasons was always peoples concern about immigration. Our country is just way to small for all the hoards pouring in’ it’s plain to see and has been for a long time.
Immigration is a double edged sword’ yes many migrants bring something to the table and do the work many born and bred brits refuse or can’t do. the other side of it is’ those extra people have to be housed, kids schooled, they drive cars and will use the nhs. a vicious circle if you like. i was once in a truck stop in the states’ i got talking to some truck drivers’ they were all very racist and moaning about the amount of migrants flooding in. i explained to them it was the same here but’ the big difference is’ they have the room for the extra people’ we do not. they all agreed. Britain is a small island and england a tiny country’ we cannot sustain the numbers’ it really is that simple. it doesn’t need to be turned into a racist or bigotry scenario, it all about the numbers. it’s like a bucket being topped up with water’ at some stage it will overflow. where should the line be drawn?

I recently spent a few hours at Medway emergency centre and watched the staff nurse chat with nearly everyone that passed, be they cleaner, porter,ambulance, doctor...none of it was work related as I could hear and eventually after what seemed an eternity she picked a clipboard up and called my name ... but this wasn’t an isolated incident, I witnessed pockets of chatting staff everywhere, I’m not saying they shouldn’t talk to each other but I’m bloody certain if they reeled it in a bit then people would be seen a lot quicker.... imagine being in the queue at Tesco’s and all the cashiers are have a good old chin wag, you’d soon get a back log

Too much management who really only succeed in managing to run the trust which employs them into the ground, then whoever is in government gets the blame.
There were umpteen people behind the scenes clearly on very good money that contributed absolutely nothing.. like the health and safety guy who we had to bring up to speed daily with regs he didn’t understand and actually broke his arm last week

on the NHS...

A friend of a friend is a qualified nurse. She quit her job in an NHS hospital because of the pay and conditions etc. And decided to do agency nursing. She now goes back in to the same hospital on a hugely increased rate of pay doing the same work as before as there's a need for qualified nurses... if she works bank holidays etc the rate is even higher.

I'm not condoning or criticising her actions, simply making the observation as she's obviously not the only one doing it.

Shows what a mess the organisation is in.

People should also, before blaming the EU or government, take a look at themselves.
Overcrowding of roads could be eased by lazy ****s walking the 1/2 mile journey to drop little Tarquin at school or picking up an avocado and almond milk from Waitrose.
Having worked in an nhs hospital the last few weeks I can safely say without immigration there would simply be a building full of ageing white brits with nobody to provide care except a few who believe work ethic means turning up, but not actually doing anything. The money I was on also shows they are so out of touch with reality it’s embarrassing.... I was probably on a better daily rate than some doctors
Maybe it’s different elsewhere in the country but London would be lost without immigrants and we should be thankful somebody will do the jobs which keep the country ticking, because most brits somehow feel that they are above modestly paid menial jobs; even though they are probably thick as ****, lazy and unskilled.
Except those with a nonsense degree which cost the tax payer a fortune that work in McDonald’s or Tesco.

There's where the main differences between remain and leave voting people are I believe Mook.
You blame the EU for where we are, many others blame the government's we've had over the last 50 years. Blaming the EU totally was always like an angler blaming his bait for blanking, a cop out in my view.

well again it’s opinion based but’ i think there has been multiple times and eras of britain being great’ for the people and governments, and other countries that benefited from such times.
the end of the two world wars come to mind mainly because us and our allies restored peace again. as mentioned before’ some of the european countries were very grateful to us at the time for liberating them’ and stopping their countries becoming german states. it was soon forgotten though it seems.
another era when the industrial revolution was in full swing’ was a time when we prospered and had things to offer.
the forming of the british empire could also be seen as great by many’ but i have mixed feelings on that. as britain often poked their nose in where it wasn’t wanted. also many foreigners were handed british passports to soften the blow. this prompted some of the early immigration problems too.
a time when britain was great for me’ was when i was a boy and then growing up. it wasn’t overcrowded then, traffic jams were rare’ plenty of open space and countryside. enough jobs for the population’ nhs was coping well’ plenty of schools.
always saw police walking the beat’ clipping us round the ear for swearing or scrumping. stabbing and shootings were a rare occurrence. usually a single stabbing would make tv news and be shock horror. drugs were out there’ not like now though. People’s opinions were not stifled either. there was terrorism tbh’ but not like we see now’ and it was because we poked our noses into others business.

whenever the eras were when britain was great’ it wasn’t great all the time’ but overall better than current times. the real problem is overcrowding, it causes most of the issues that people moan about today. there is no balance, there are little countries like ours and other parts of europe’ that have strived to get civilised and successful’ then are preyed on by immigrants that are legal and illegal. then somewhere huge like australia with hardly anybody living there.
Immigration should have stopped here a long time ago’ but it didn’t’ this was a big factor in the start of brexit.
i don’t really care what colour or race people are’ or where they come from i just don’t think we want any more here’ and getting rid of the illegals would be a start. some will leave anyway once we leave europe according to research’ but there will need to be proper control over immigration until the numbers are down to a level where everybody can breath a bit and have a better quality of life.
there still many that believe in britain’ and believe we are trying to make it great again without being a puppet for brussels. i’m one of those people.

Same Scozza
My wife worked for a US private equity firm based out of San Francisco for the last 4 years until recently. She looked after the Middle East, Europe and Africa divisions of the billion$ company. The PE owned many famous and old British brands and site's in Staffordshire, Cambridge and London. The London site was closed the Staffordshire site has halved in employees and all manufacturing outsourced to the far East. The Cambridge site has such a high turnover of staff because of wage and conditions cuts it's ridiculous. All new pipe line product development halted and sent to the US.
The PE has made a fortune, all profits San Francisco bound instead of UK bound,so did the shareholders that sold the companies to the PE intially.
Merry Christmas Cobham employees from the UK government of feral free marketeers no matter what the cost

It wasn't kept secret, the sale was given approval in July, its a global business with employees all over the world and several sites with some owned and some leased so it takes time to draw up a contract of sale.

Yeah the sale was agreed back then

Can't for the life of me think why they'd keep the approval of a sale of MOD related business to an American company a little secret until after the election.....
