Government Cannot Do It All

Britain's leading liberal newspaper has attached the anodyne headline "Iain Duncan Smith appeals to businesses to employ young Britons" to a story about a blather to a right-wing think tank in Madrid by our regrettable Secretary for Work and Pensions Withdrawal. In fact, the blather is not so much a bit of friendly finger-wagging, such as the corpse of Vincent Cable likes to try with the banking sector now and then, as it is a routine piece of immigrant-bashing in the best New Labour manner.

The Labour MP, Conservative "poverty tsar" and Thatcher sycophant Frank Field has said that almost ninety per cent of the jobs created in the present administration's first year went to immigrants; Duncan Smith is anxious to ensure that British jobs for British workers remain as high a priority as under the Reverend Tony and his Glorious Successor, and it appears that too many jobs are now being done by foreigners which could be done by young people instead. Indeed, it is because of New Labour's failure to lock up and deport enough immigrants that we are at risk of "losing another generation to dependency and hopelessness", despite the coalition's strenuous efforts to improve their prospects by robbing their teachers, mugging their parents and flatlining the economy. "Government cannot do it all," whines Duncan Smith. If our native chavlings are going to be properly kicked into shape, business will have to get its boots on too.

    Not while there are still forests to flog, we're not.
