|Matthew Hancock MP|
I heard on the radio news today a worrying and morally repugnant statement released by the UK minister for skills. No doubt it was said with the intention of gaining the favour & votes of those misguided people who harbour bigoted views about none national UK residents, but it made me heave.
The minister who goes by the name of Matthew Hancock said that "employers have social duty, when considering whether or not to take a person they should chose a local British person in preference to an immigrant".
I hear echoes of pre war Nazi Germany policy here. When the national Socialist government of Germany (post election of Hitler) only employed Ayrian Germans in preference to Jews or those which the government considered 'unpure/inferior.
I guess though that only difference is that the UK minister for skills comment is, as I said, aimed as a vote gaining comment at those bigots in our society.
I wonder though, what kind of society are we heading for with the Government we currently have?
Those of us who forget the lessons of history are destined to repeat them.
