    "No longer an English place now, with far too many Indians, Afghans and EU migrants".

    "Too many foreigners have removed our traditions and identity".

    "Our jobs, and our values have now gone"

    According to the locals on the news.

    I love hearing people complain about "them" taking their jobs, yet when the jobs were available, none of them would go near them!

    To be fair and if I'm not mistaken these were a number of 70/80 something elderly people enjoying a pleasant game of indoor bowls who presented these answers.

    Never understood people saying "they took our jobs". Unless they're illegally working for less than minimum wage then there's no real argument.

    Bloody immigrants, coming over here, taking our small business startups like hand car washes and pizza shops.

    The vast majority of old people shouldn't be used in the media because they're opinions are usually wrong. That includes my grandad who firmly believes that following Brexit the Wear will start building ships again.

    I've always thought that. If somebody from Eastern Europe comes here, English is not their first language, probably doesn't know the area that well, maybe they don't have so many qualifications - the person complaining their job has been taken must be pretty fucking weak to be beaten in a job interview.

  18. Having more people than jobs means that there is competition for said jobs and wages don't need to be as competitive. Immigration has helped facilitate that model.

    I'm not against immigration, and have nothing against people coming here wishing to start a better life. I do think we should acknowledge that immigration has helped the "haves" at the expense of the hoi polloi though.

    I have spent quite a bit of my time in the Margate area over the past couple of years as well a the surrounding towns of Broadstairs, Ramsgate and Sandwich and the notion that these areas are over run by immigrants or are any where near to it is utter bollocks.
    It is true that a number of Eastern Europeans are used as low paid labour on the fruit farms and market gardens in the area. These people are obviouly attracted by the filthy leaking ancient caravans that they are offered as all year round living accommodation by many of the farmers who employ them. Pop down and have a look at what a number of our hard done by farmers get away with.
