It takes 17 million to remove it, but then they realise none of them have a replacement bulb.

Remain voters have plenty of time to change light bulbs, the regions that support remain all have above average unemployment

You mean below average? It is just a shame many Brexiters cite immigrants for their woes rather than the fact that immigrants are generally better educated and harder working.

All the more reason for them to vote leave, surely?

If you cannot compete against a 45yr old PHD graduate willing to live 12 to a house on minimum wage then I suspect you would be pretty anti immigration for creating such an un-level competition field.

But if the immigrants leave do you really think the employer wants to hire a lazy Brit who can't read or string a sentence together without Fing and Geoffing?

Also seconding this.. There's nothing we can do now and it's getting real tiring people complaining over something that is now inevitable.

The lightbulb will have been changed already and then they will demand for it to be changed again because they did not get up to do it when they had the chance to. Young Remainers cannot complain if they didn't vote. An interesting stat would be how many Remain voters actually made an informed decision and how many panicked due to the scaremongering. Also to be noted is the 2 day extension for registering to vote.

There is a reason why immigrants are better educated and harder working. Its because the lower rungs of the job ladder do not exist in this country anymore due to the stupid min-wage laws and the EU's regulations.

It is because migrants in their home countries have managed to get on the job ladder at young ages of 16+ gaining experience and becoming more productive than the average British worker.

Mean while in post-industrial towns like Grimsby the min-wage laws have stopped young workers from getting on the job ladder.

You then need to add in the fact that our Industries have been liquidated and shipped out of Britain to make way for European goods such as Cars, Motorcycles and Electronics.

Not everyone can get a University level job.

We have a problem in this country where people do not want the conditions to be created for Britain to be self sufficient. The moment we start becoming independent there are huge shouts of racism!

===========

Ask yourself this? How can China make Motorcycles for £500-1000? How can Romania make Cars for £6000?

Its because they allow the working class to access the lower rungs of the Job Ladder!

The statement where you say immigrants are harder working and better educated is actually a fallacy. Its due to freedom and the destruction of regulations that has allowed them to become more productive.

Didn't you go apeshit when Lotd Freud said that companies shouldn't have to pay disabled people a full wage to make them more competitive?

Cos that's the logic right there.

He was in favor of a fixed wage not one based on productivity.

A: One to tell everyone that there's nothing wrong with the lightbulb, one to scream and rant about wildly exaggerated risks associated with lightbulb replacement, one to insist that we shouldn't change the lightbulb so that we can try and coax it into working again, and one who's secretly a Brexiter but doesn't want to upset their friendship group to actually change the lightbulb.

So are you advocating the removal of the minimum wage? Do you really think Brits would be encouraged to work for £4 an hour? Btw. You can't compare us to China. It is true that wages are about a third of those here, but similarly one can buy a hearty meal from a restaurant for less than a quid.

The working classes need to understand that the days of mass unskilled labour are long gone. Even ridiculed customer service jobs require skills many either don't possess or aren't prepared to acquire.

Yes unskilled job opportunities are long gone but you completely misunderstand the point. If this country is to be independent we need to start investing in shop floor training and we need to make low wages work.

So for a start. We need a massive housing revolution in this country. Forget about houses to buy. House rent needs to fall to as little as £25 a month so we can pay our workers 100% less than what they are earning at the moment.

Food prices are getting lower as we automate the production lines and get rid of pathetic bourgeois choice & rare goods. This enables supermarkets like Aldi & Lidil to offer cheap prices but they could go a lot further and get food prices down 3 times more if customers where prepared to eat seasonal.

We need a complete agricultural revolution so we can invest in Perma-cultural practices and vertical growing.

When it comes to Energy people need to understand that Coal is the best way to produce power. We can also use carbon capture technology to produce Algae which in turn can be transformed into Bio-Diesel. There for burning coal = No carbon footprint!

I personally advocate for building housing underground because the lower we go the less heating we need. Sub-Terrain dwellings are the best way forward to be prepared for potential ice-ages which could develop in the future. They also reserve ground surface space for important things such as growing food.

This is the way forward.

We need to become more competitive or we will become more poorer.

Its not about how much money we are paid its what amount of necessities, goods and services we can buy with our wages.
