Walking home this evening the incompatibility of two commonly held progressive views dawned on me. The first is that immigrants often do the jobs that Brits won’t do. The second is that only a very small number of welfare claimants are spongers. These two views can’t both be true. If lazy Brits won’t do certain jobs, how do they survive if not on welfare? And if there are really just a few of these lay-abouts, why constantly harp on about the benefits of having migrants who do these very few jobs that Brits won’t do?
