    The woman fresh off the plane from Poland, who speaks very little English, is a better applicant than someone who is currently on a gap year before going to university? I think not. I know some people who have admitted that they needed to lie in order to get a job because of this whole 'experience' bull****. You're going to train the person anyway so why does it matter? It's not rocket science to train someone in working a bloody till!

    What happens if two applicants are evenly matched but 1 is white and 1 is asian? Does the asian get the job to fulfil a quota? If yes, that's discrimination and if no, then why have equal opportunities? Mind-boggling.
    Taking your example of McDonalds, if she knows "Big Mac", "large fries" etc then why not? You're not hot stuff just because you're on a gap year. Who said she was hired just because she was Polish? And also, how the hell do you know it was all Poles applying and accepted? That's so typical, people failing to get jobs, women or whatever on their own merits so they blame immigrants.

    It's so typical for you liberal types to support immigration blindly, despite there being over 2.5 million unemployed. If they employed based on merits, I'd be inundated with job offers.

    It's so typical for unemployed Brits to rant about how the only reason why they're unemployed is the influx of Polish works and that the fact that they don't put much effort into getting work experience, writing good CVs and/or applying for jobs has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    How could I be rejected if I didn't apply for a job? Doesn't make any sense. Most jobs don't even ask for a CV (retail sector) so that's negated, and how can I get experience if I've just left school and no-one is even giving me an interview? I'm currently working in a charity shop, so that should help in the future.

    I don't blindly support immigration. But I wouldn't employ you being so arrogant.

    Uh, it's common knowledge that menial jobs like those don't normally go to those entering higher education or who have a degree as employers know that they will leave as soon as a better opportunity comes up and don't want to waste money training people who will leave

    I had an interview for Barclays, and mentioned on my CV that I was in the Officer's Training Corps. The interviewer was Pakistani and when I explained what the OTC was his toned changed entirely and he got *****y, needless to say I never heard back.

    I put down my ethnicity as Irish on application forms now, since technically I am a dual British-Irish citizen through descent.

    I hardly doubt that someone who who was an ethnic minority with no skills would get the job over a fully-skilled "white" person (and vice versa).

    Fair enough, I never said they were never discriminated against at all, just that it was generally less likely. That said all forms of racism are wrong and should be discouraged.

    No. But I've never really seen the reverse either. Those examples you posted are probably quite rare, otherwise they wouldn't really be in the news.

    What?

    You're blaming you not getting a job on immigrants who are "privileged".....

    How do you know the jobs you were rejected for were in favour of more talented white british people? (more than likely since they make up 94% of Britain)

    Pahaha they are hardly examples, just small anomalies. There are only 2 jobs actually shown in your examples which show discrimination, and one of your sites was a BNP site lol!

    Apart from that I think you will find this doesn't happen at all around the country (and it's ILLEGAL anyway).

    Stop scapegoating people who look physically different to you for your unemployment problems.

    People like you blame immigrants for apparently "flooding this country" and being lazy and living of the welfare state, then you blame them for "taking all our jobs".... what next?

    Someone of mixed race born in Britain is just as "British" as you are.
