Russia Today: Immigrants the scapegoats of economic woe

Russia Today: Immigrants the scapegoats of economic woe

'With the financial crisis raging, and the threat of recession looming, the British government says it can’t support immigration at its current level. Political analyst John Bourke looks into the implications of the move.'

It is nice to see Putin's propoganda machine (Russia Today, not this blog) tackling the subject of British politics.

I agree with this feature; the government's talk about cutting immigration is utterly stupid. I like this comment:

"So let’s try to understand how this might work then. In order to keep the country’s population manageable, the brokers and economists from the City will now move out to the countryside to pick lettuce at seven pounds an hour. In the meantime, this will allow us to ship back home all the Eastern Europeans doing these jobs now?!"
