    Once again the closet racism on TSR is becoming apparent.

    If you're not good enough for a job and someone is better, tough. Competition is good and increases our productive potential. complaining about how 'we whites are getting are jobs taken by foreigners' is what losers do. Get a grip and improve yourself instead of crying about it.

    Why be so specific? Certain races have been much more helpful than others. Muslims are at the 'lesser helpful' end of the scale. Indians for example are hard working, law abiding, peaceful citizens.

    So because of our actions 200-250 years ago we get penalised for it? Does Turkey get penalised for the slaughter of Armenian Christians, and the Ottoman Empire? What about China, for their actions under Genghis Khan?

    Indian isn't a religion, or if you knew that then you didn't know that Islam is a religion. Basically, you can be an Indian Muslim, for example it's the same thing as a British Muslim. You can be British and Muslim.

    Its because good hard working muslims have helped build up the economy by founding businesses and doing the jobs lazy white Brits don't want to do. In contrast you Brits raped and pillaged a quarter of the world which is why people from these countries have to immigrate in the first place.
    Anyway what is the difference between the acts of British pilgrims and how many of the American Indians reacted to them, and the certain immigrants here and how a minority of people nationalistically respond to them?

    I assumed he was talking about Asian Muslim men.

    Thanks for the heads up. I literally had no clue that Islam is a religion.

    Brits were also the first to abolish slavery. Pass me a biscuit please.

    Should the government make businesses only employ british people? Migrants from Europe think of UK as a very attractive place to live as they learn the language while at school. How many eastern europeans live in Germany compared to the UK? In the UK it is not compulsory to learn a different language so we have an unfair advantage when thinking about living in a new country. More and more migrants with degree are now coming to the UK, taking jobs. Job
    vacancies are now at all time low.
    Your last point is incorrect. There are currently around 700,000 job vacancies (a near record) and more than 400,000 are full time.

    In answer to your question the answer is no, i don't support restricting employment to natives however i'm not opposed to restricting elements of non-EU immigration and also spouse immigration.

    EU migrants are unequivocally good for the UK. They're more educated and fill skilled jobs that the native population can't.
    That's a lie. The majority of EU migrants are low-skilled workers.

    And a larger majority of British natives are low-skilled workers. Can't be bothered finding sources right now, but I posted a thread ages ago that links to a study. Something like ~35% of EU migrants have a degree compared to ~25% non-EU migrants and ~21% UK natives.

    That's the same case with british workers too.

    Honestly, your superiority complex has really given you a distorted perspective on the whole issue.

    I can't really trust those figures if you don't provide a source. It also doesn't change the fact that there are still vast numbers of low-skilled EU migrants coming into the UK...

    Migration Watch UK found the almost three quarters of Eastern Europeans working in the UK are in the low skilled jobs. A fair amount of these are pretty likely to claim tax credits.

    I'm not trying to suggest that British people/workers are somehow superior. I was simply saying that the majority of EU migrants coming to the UK are low skilled workers. That is a fact.

    35% is very low

    Unemployment has been going down for a while. If you're getting outcompeted by people who don't even speak English as a first language, maybe you should've tried harder in school.
    no they take jobs of plumbers and builders they also don't earn enough to pay for the public services that they use

    Yet the issue here is that they are taking british jobs. If they're better than low skilled british people then that's tough, should have made use of their education. If 'immigrants stealing our jobs' is really an issue, it just shows that these immigrants are better workers than the natives. Proposing that natives should have some form of advantage is just a passive form of discrimination, hence why there is a superiority complex

    Really, you're 'fact' is irrelevant.

    Not necessarily. The point is to create a job, and get someone that is qualified enough to fill it. You shouldn't be guaranteed a job due to being a native...

    Giving jobs to people specifically because of their race/ nationality and being a 'native' is discrimination.
