Removal of resistance: Minnie tells us
We hear almost daily that migrants threaten British jobs, and that migrant workers lead to a drop in wages for British workers. In reality, there is no evidence that migration drives down wages, particularly for the working class. Migrants themselves are disproportionately represented in low-wage sectors and research from the University College London has found that migration can actually lead to an increase in the wages of higher-paid workers. A recent government-commissioned report by the Migration Advisory Committee found that it is international financial forces, not migration, that impacts salaries, with all workers having done badly since the financial crisis of 2008. Real wages are still struggling to rise above where they were in the aftermath of that crisis and in many cases, migrant workers are actually leading the battle to ensure that standards rise for all workers.
And most importantly Minnie tells us:
In the same breath, people who perpetuate the false notion that migrants drive down wages often also claim that migrants are abusing our welfare system. Memes and viral Facebook posts often claim that "illegal" immigrants are always "first in the queue" for housing, benefits and are a drain on the NHS. But this couldn't be further from the truth. As shown by the latest report from the Office for National Statistics on immigration, it's students who make up around half of all non-EU immigration and the majority of EU nationals predominantly arrive to work.
Health tourism is almost non-existent, with the NHS spending more on stationery than on treating people who aren't eligible for NHS care. The government's own estimate puts the cost of deliberate misuse of the NHS by overseas visitors at 0.3 per cent of the NHS budget - the majority of this is actually British expats living overseas, who are not "ordinarily resident" in the UK and return to the UK solely to use the NHS outside of the rules.
Migrants of all kinds do pay for NHS services and have done for many years. The Immigration Health Surcharge, which is included as part of visa applications, means that migrants actually pay for the NHS twice over - £1,000 a year as part of their visa application, and then payments through their tax contributions.
In fact, most people who come to live in the UK have "no recourse to public funds", meaning they are not eligible for benefits. Even asylum-seekers, who are barred from working, are left to live on just £5.39 per day, and struggle to support themselves and their families. What's more, the "hostile environment" denies anyone without documentation the right to benefits, banking, driving licences and employment.
Unification: What Minnie fails to talk about, like most writers at the Indy, Guardian or anywhere else attempting to present an 'alternative' to the jingoistic, money-worshipping corporate-whore culture of the BBC, Times, Telegraph, etc, is the obvious fact which comes out of what she herself is telling us clearly: this nation is full of people who seek to blame anyone 'different', particularly if the difference is in name or skin colour - and they have become worse and worse and worse over the years.
As my screenplay 'Madam Bovary the neoliberal version' will soon show you, Coronavirus has many faces - the faces of Boris Johnson, Nigel Farage, Tony Blair, Theresa May, Priti Patel, David Cameron, George Osborne, Emily Thornberry, Tom Watson, Chukka Umunna, Robert Peston, Robert Webb, David Baddiel, Rachel Riley, Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long Bailey, and so many others. THESE are the faces of the coronavirus.
This is a society of racists and buffoons in total denial who refuse to even take one step towards acknowledging the mass white-racism in this country. Even Richard Burgon is a pathetic coward who says "it was a brexit election that's why we lost" instead of "it was a white-racism election punctuated by brexit and we lost because too many white people in Britain are fucking racist scum who need to grow up and stop being vindictive racist c*nts" as he should say. If they did stop being such fuckup retarded c*nts they would be a more united, more healthy, stronger nation which would lose less lives to coronavirus, but instead they cling onto their racial preferences, their entrenched ignorance even when it means many very young and very old people will die, that's how lost and fucked up they are.
People like Minnie need to have the guts to confront this head on and not stop at saying "you're wrong about migration" - they need to say what they need to say: "you are wrong about your perceived racial superiority you ignorant racist piece of shit".
Note this too, reader: there is not ONE SINGLE white racist c*nt, nor one single middle class virtue signalling white-preference carrying fuck who thinks she or he is not racist but is, who is reading this document I have written which you are reading. They are allergic, these dumb c*nts, to scrutinising ANYTHING which may prove them and their diseased way of life wrong.
Minnie does, no doubt, reach some of the racist c*nts, but what's the good if she doesn't tell them that that's what they are? Eh?
Indeed as Stacy Herbert pointed out, it doesn't just show how racist most Britons are it really shows how stupid and uninformed most of them are and how much the 'media' intensifies that stupidity.
So when we wonder how to save ourselves and those we love from coronavirus, perhaps we should think about how much to trust the media or the general population's ignorant hysterical mindset.
