those of us who know a thing or two know how Britain begged for money from others in the past, too.
And paid the debt back, Britian has never had a free ride (excluding what they pillaged from ex colonies of course).
My bro who has a cleaning company has not employed an English person for 2O years, he said all they did was complain, skimp on the job or not show up.
What you mean is he's been going for cheap labour for the last 20 years, probably paying cash in hand and under the going rate.
Incidentally I am sitting in a well known pub/diner chain in London, the 'foreign' staff are utterly charming, the one English person is a rude cow with an attitude problem, who has NO IDEA how to talk to customers.
Another jibe at the English...Oh dear!
In the UK we should have the same 10 year rule for economic migrants,if you come here and cant make it,tough,go home,but,there should always be room for exceptions. Guess what, "we" could easily afford those exceptions if "we" were not so profligate with benefits.
