Mandelson man of the people defends British workers?

In the jobs for Brits row Peter Mandelson, has spoken out to tell you the British that the law is not being broken.

Well that's a relief and lets not forget Mr Mandelson is a man to be listened too, since only last year he decided to remove himself, and his not inconsiderable snout from Brussels and save the country.

Obviously its quite lawful for European workers to be employed, in this country, and lets not forget these foreign contractors advertise their jobs quite openly in Italy, Portugal, Poland etc you can hardly blame them if British workers are too lazy to trawl through Europe in search of jobs on their doorstep.

When Gordon Brown said British Jobs for British people, clearly the press didn't go on to report the bit about them being advertised in the backwaters of Eastern Europe.

Clearly stories from construction workers and the like of losing their jobs to any old foreigner so long as he is cheap are groundless, anyway I'm off to see if I can get a job a Fannit Erff.

Maybe Mandelsom and some fellow Labour Fat Cats would like to read this story picked at random from the Daily Star( there are many similar).

At the risk of getting arrested I would like a job before another Albanian, Romanian, Lithuanian, Pole, Italian or any other foreigner in my own country.


  1. these are the laws the country abides by, so it was wrong for Gordy to say british jobs for british workers. You cannot choose one worker over another based on nationality.

    Same goes for Thanet Earth, China Gateway or my favourite, 3,000 jobs being created at Manston. They might be in Thanet, but living here does not guarantee you a job. Experience, ability and willingness to work will be the main criteria. Where you live or are from will not come into it.

  2. The contentious area is not whether there is free competition but where jobs are advertised abroad, to exclude UK residents.

    It's a clear case of discrimination against british workers.

  3. I cannot see how through some twisted idea of equality we allow jobs to handed over to foreigners rather that give us a fair go!

  4. I support British jobs for British workers, I'm more concerned that you have used the Daily Star as a source. ;-)
