    It IS terrible news: at the same time, the Beeb said that wages are falling in real terms

    And shock horror...one in five of those unemployed are migrants

    If we got rid of the migrants and Euro trash (possibly the same thing) how well would the employment figures improve?

    Most of the unemployed "migrants" are from non-EU countries and percentage wise EU migrants have a lower unemployment rate than the UK trash.

    All in all if the EU migrants were to go home the economy would shrink, then the proportion of trash to the rest of the population would rise due to the fact that there is more trash in the UK population.

    More shock horror!
    EU migrants without a job make up city the size of Bristol

    One in seven of the 2,733,000 EU migrants aged 16-64 - a total of 390,000 - are unemployed or “inactive”.

    Indeed and one of the reason people voted to leave the EU is so that we could concentrate on removing and re-educating the 'trash' as opposed to glossing over the problem with immigration.

    But I suppose as long as the cost of your Mocha-ChocaChino with Pumpkin spice does not go up you will always see being in the EU as a benefit.

    Standard Remainer "having your cake and eating it" ploy.

    If anything bad happens it's because we're leaving the EU. But anything good happening is because we're still in the EU.

    The Biased Broadcasting Corporation is very selective when it comes to reporting EU-related news, especially any unfavourable to its Remainer narrative.

    A week or so ago the Economist and/or London School of Economics (both ardent Remainers BTW) released the results of a large survey involving 20,000 people. As I recall, these results said that about 70% of those who had voted to Remain were now firmly of the belief we should leave, with a hard Brexit if necessary.

    Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a link to this, because needless to say there is no mention of it on Aljabeeba.

    edit: Ah it's here, or referenced within one of the comments:

    Racist!

    Seriously insult the Beeb but not a broadcaster from another country who has feck all to do with it.
