    You almost couldn't make this up. The irony is astonishing. So the group Leave.EU employs low skilled EU migrants in its call centres despite having previously said 'low skilled European migrants deprive British citizens of jobs'.


    The sheer hypocrisy. If they are so opposed to low skilled migration, why are they employing them over British workers?

    ukippers have a long record of using Eastern European labour. As their business spokesperson was reported saying, it's because British labour are useless.

    UKIP and the eurosceptics right aren't wanting to leave the EU to protect workers rights, but to crush them completely. That's why the bulk of their lobbyists are a bunch of tax dodging corporates who'd sell off their granny. Aaron Banks, Cummings and Hannawn all want to turn the UK into a mini US minus the stuff that actually makes the U.S. Any good.

    I completely agree. Call centre jobs are exactly the type of jobs that we tend to stick our noses up and call annoying, the type of jobs that we wouldn't want to do or think are beneath us. Yet we get so outraged when immigrants are happy to do these very jobs that we turn our noses up at.

    UKIP calls for eu migrants to be treated like none either migrants.

    They do not call for no migration.

    The fact you posted this shows how little you know about ukip

    This very group, Leave.eu has complained that low skilled migrants are taking jobs away from British citizens. This very group is employing low skilled migrants over British citizens.
    It would be akin to opponents of fox hunting, going fox hunting themselves.

    If you can't see the irony and hypocrisy I give up with people.

    1. That would be for new people coming in not existing migrants

    2. It would be against the law to discriminate.

    3. Idiot

    They are complaining about low skilled migrants being employed over British migrants. They are employing low skilled migrants.

    They are contributing to the 'problem' they claim exists.

    How can you not see the irony? Actually don't answer, if one fails to see the irony here I despair.

    I'm not interested in getting into petty insult throwing matches.
    You have failed to grasp the irony of an anti immigration group employing immigrants.
    It would be like an anti Fox-Hunting group, going fox-hunting. Or an environmentalist group chopping down trees, or an animal rights group opening up a butchers.

    They preach that they don't want low-skilled migrants taking jobs while employing low-skilled migrants.

    The irony is stunning.

    It would be illegal not to

    They preach the end of importing unskilled migrants they don't preach getting rid of the ones we already have

    You left out the 'can often' part. Low-skilled European workers 'can often' deprive British citizens of jobs in the low-skilled end of the labour market.
    Which obviously implies judging on a case-by-case basis and controlling the situation, not an arbritary blanket ban. Quite ironic considering how much you whine about 'Tory media' quoting Corbyn out of context.

    They have quoted him out of context, I've not quoted them out if context. Let's rise above the little cheap shots.
    They oppose low skilled immigration, they employ low skilled immigrants for their benefit. Irony at it's finest.

    You don't appear to understand irony. Its not about ukip policy, its about a group which criticises low skilled migrants purposely benefiting from them.

    They didn't have to hire anyone, instead they are benefiting off the same people they want rid of.

    If they discriminate based on nationality then that is breaking the law.

    Your argument that they should discriminate against foreign workers because they want to limit EU migration by subjecting eu migrants to the same set of rules in place currently for none eu migrants for migration after brexit.

    Is retarded, it's not ironic it's moronic

    You have quoted them out of context and I even pointed out how. The context in this case being 'can often'. Literally, read your own article again.
    UKIP has never been against a blanket ban on cheap low-skilled European labour. British people will never want to do certain jobs and in those cases 'importing' labour is required. UKIP has been against uncontrolled large scale low-skilled immigration.
