Gordon Brown's dog whistle "British jobs for British workers" has made the news again today. Trawling through the various stories I came across a beauty of a quote for a 'quote of the day'. It's not at all PC and that's what I like about it. It comes from a man in a position to know what he is talking about, who when asked a dodgy question, gave an honest answer.
Mark Rye, of the employment firm DKM Labour Solutions, explained why it is easier to fill vacancies with foreign workers. Mark said: "It's a lot easier to find jobs for these people because these are the people applying for the jobs. Gordon Brown's suggestion that we should march British jobless to the front of the queue belies his lack of understanding of the situation."
Now here comes the quote of the day: Asked whether many British people did not want to work, Mark replied: "Yes, I think that's one way of putting it."
Ah the truth, isn't it refreshing? Good on you Mark Rye.
