“It wouldn’t be a bad idea if we did something about agency workers. There’s all this talk about immigration when the real problem in our society is the fact that now, a majority of foreign people that come to this country are now being dictated to by agencies, and it’s time we got rid of [these agencies]. They’re undercutting the indigenous workers. I worked with Poles in 1948 down the pit, and why did nobody get worked up about the displaced persons, the Poles, the Ukrainians? Because they were in the union with us, and they also [earned] the same wages, and there wasn’t an agency in sight.”

Anonymous said: You're from bangladesh, you ain't british. Also, white brits are happy with UKIP because they support them and stand for their rights against the mass-immigration which has destroyed Great Britanistan 2.0. Or would you like that Bangladesh would be submerged with mass-immigration from other non-developped countries for example and turn your place to a shithole? Answer this. Either way, go back to your country.
Alright, you vicious little insect. You’ve caught me in a bad mood. Bad enough that UKIP won and then I have to wake up to your ignorant, racist and downright stupid spillage all over my askbox? Let’s gently dismantle this, shall we. You’ve already proven yourself to be ridiculous, I “ain’t” British, I can assure you, that someone from Bangladesh can be and I am. I’ve been here since I was 2 years old. So try and keep up with whatever limited brain cell count you have. Firstly, find me any “pure British” person whose heritage isn’t somehow connected to other countries, Scotland, Ireland, any number of European countries. You realise that your ancestors probably immigrated to Britain at some point for whatever reason? This isn’t Harry Potter, there’s no such thing as “pure blood.” Get a grip.
Secondly, I’ll tell you what’s turning this Britain into a shithole. Not the hard working immigrants who come here to try and escape whatever is happening back home, or simply want the honest chance of a better life, but parties like UKIP coming to power. People like you, small, narrow-minded intolerant little fools who spew their hatred and hope that anyone, just anyone, might listen.
Thirdly, let’s discuss some of the other things UKIP want to do besides cut down on immigration. All the things you’re supporting by voting for them. They don’t believe in climate change (wow, so clever!) exactly the sort of ripe intelligence that should be in control of a country, want to increase defence spending by 40%, this deficit is going to come out of the NHS which means hospitals are going to have significantly less funds. They’re against same sex marriage. They want to cut inheritance tax which means the rich are only going to get richer. They want to leave the EU for God’s sake. Do you know how catastrophic that would be for the economy? You’d have to stop worrying about the immigrants and actually get a clue about politics. There are more reasons here if you’re actually interested in educating yourself.
I’m going to leave you with some gentle quotes from the people you’ve elected into power.
- "No employer with a brain in the right place would employ a young, single, free woman.”
- "The victim surely shares a part of the responsibility, if only for establishing reasonable expectations in her boyfriend’s mind.
- "I just wish they would keep their homosexual nature and practices to themselves and stop trying to ram it down my throat telling me they are ‘normal’ when they are not."
Now I’m going to kindly ask you to take your ignorant little opinions and unfollow me, thank you.
