The slogan 'British jobs for British workers' has split opinion between those who agree with the phrase, and those who believe it smacks of racism, a politics.co.uk poll has revealed.
Half of those people are fucking idiots: I'll leave you to guess which half...
Incidentally, here is a thought that I had today...
Employers are required not to discriminate on grounds of race; and yet, by being forced to sack my American friend, are her employers and, ultimately, the government not breaking that law?
(Or is race defined purely on the grounds of colour? In which case, should employers not maintain that they do not discriminate on the grounds of genetically-expressed phenotype?)
Are the jobs of foreign, non-EU workers not covered by any discrimination laws? And has anyone actually tested this in court? Because it seems to me that the government's new points-system is entirely based on racism: if you are one of the races of the EU, you get a free ride—if you are not, you are discriminated against.
Surely this is the very definition of racism?
Perhaps Dolly "not a racist" Draper would like to answer this one...?
