Gordon Brown's British jobs for foreign workers.

Frank Field requested a report from the Statistics Commission after the DWP gave him a dodgy estimation on the number of foreign workers in the UK. The report states that 80% of jobs created since 1997 have gone to foreign workers.

The shadow work and pensions secretary, Chris Graylin said:

"This finally destroys any claim the Government has to be able to talk about British jobs for British workers. It also destroys any confidence about the Government's claims on their record on jobs. Gordon Brown's Welfare to Work policies have clearly been an abject failure and all he's done is create British jobs for foreign workers."

Surely we should be running at near zero unemployment according to those figures.

The Express is accurate after all then! I am not surprised at those figures - foreign employees are so much cheaper to run, exploit and influence into voting for MacDoh!

I thought I read somewhere that Brown's exclamation 'British jobs for British people' is actually illegal according to EU regulations.


Although with New Labour adopting the nationality tag 'British' to almost anyone these days, he probably can say that.

P.S How do you post using Blackberry?

Hello TTG,

To post from a Blackberry you go into your blogger dashboard, click on "settings" and then on "email".

On the email page you can set up a "mail-to-blogger address".

Once you have set up that email address, you simply write an email on your Blackberry and send it to that address.

The title of the email becomes the title of the post, and the email message becomes the post body.

Hope that makes sense.
