Immigrants Sponging Off Our Welfare... Not

So tired of hearing economic migrants, refugees, and illegal immigrants mixed up in order to create FUD (where the parties stand).

I am so pleased about this article in Guardian. Nailing another myth about immigrants as the source of all our problems.
According to the Home Office, only 21 of the 133,000 east European migrant workers registered have signed on the dole. So much for those pre-accession stories of Britain being flooded with east European benefit scroungers.

    So many sponging "white" brits think they are too bloody important to do vital, yet menial jobs (cleaning, packing food, picking food). They cannot be arsed to get of their fat, convenience food fed arses. The dole office is more profitable and less effort. Their self esteem does not recognise the value of hard work for a fair wage. Yet these whingers are the ones to complain about hard working, willing people who will do these jobs...just because they travel further than the distance to the nearest dole office to do them.
