Just keep in mind that "we are all Jock Tamson's bairns", and whats good for the goose is good for the gander.

I'm surprised you hate your own class, if indeed you are of the working class, end of the day the only thing that seems to be cheap, as you put it, is the quality of life in rather a few socioeconomic and demographics across the U.K.

People will stop "whining" when there is a fair days pay for a fair days work, so probably not for quite some time to come really.

Now on that note, i have to bid you good evening as i have baths to be dishing out, and weans to get off to bed, as they are back to school tomorrow.

I'm assuming you know how to hold a reasoned debate?

Souther Italy, Greece. Greece has enough problems of its own without further immigration.

We dont need any more immigrants really. The Chinese are being hit with a tax if they buy homes and sit on them - to try and deter and slow down an unfordable real estate market.

Fact is what is being done to these poor people is illegal and at the end of the day also counterproductive regarding employment and the working conditions for all the people of our nation.


So true

I'm assuming you understand that calling someone a "Whining bastard" is rather beyond the scope of a reasoned debate?

Probably not all the same.

It's beyond reason to call in to question the work mentality of the hard-working people of our nation or to insinuate them to be anything other than proficient and committed to there chosen profession. That in itself can easily be considered to show a measure of uneducated hatred towards what you claim to be your own class.

Most hardworking people still place a measure of pride in the work. The fact that they don't want to work more than 40 hours week or for less monies than they are worth in no way donates laziness nor a workshy mentality.

Think what you wish through, after all you are perfectly at liberty to do so.

For sure, I thought I'd just go for the childish insult since you've misquoted and misrepresented my comments all through the thread.

Hatred? Give it a rest fella, I'm calling out the lazy Brits who have been replaced in the workplace by nearly 3 million EU nationals

Agreed, more people work than claim jobseeking benefits. Heck, more EU nationals work in the UK than folk signing on. Plenty of lazy Brits around though. I take pride paying for my own life through work though, never claimed any benefits, always jumped on some crap agency job when I've found myself needing to. No pride signing on refusing to take something minimum wage, that's just leeching.

You definitely wouldn't want a million+ Brits moving over if we were allowed free movement of workers lol
You guys might get to play on a level field after Brexit though, presumably EU nationals won't have the advantage over the rest of the world after we leave. It's mad how 450 million people can move and work here on a whim, yet people from English speaking countries have to jump through hoops to gain a visa. I'd rather an Australian labourer who I can have a laugh with than a Bulgarian I can barely barely communicate with, every time.

Aye we live in an island paradise just dripping with wine and honey with jobs we can simply pull from the trees whenever we care to do so or feel the need to alleviate our boredom.

That's when we are not all being lazy workshy bastards sponging off the beloved Tory overlords of course.


Must be brilliant to live in your world where everything is peachy and any fault that does exist can be solved with what essentially amounts to imported slave labour and/or indentured servitude from some far off land.

Pride is all well and good but it does not put food on the table or a roof over one's head, that would be cold hard cash monies, which is kind of hard to accumulate these days without the notion of fair days work for a fair day pay. Tell you this zero hour contracts and minimum wage payouts are hardly synonymous with such, just a thought.

Kind of hard to be cheery about Brexit or the current socioeconomic climate in which we find ourselves.

Then again if you did not laugh you would bloody cry.


I'm actually quite cheery today, all the same I'm taking the frustration out on Destiny 2.
