The BBC is going in hard on the Brexit doom and gloom with Tory May being the standard bearer for it and Corbyn the man who wants to keep us in by stealth.
Everytime I switch onto the BBC on the radio there’s some doom and gloom about the NHS, agriculture or industry and Brexit….the NHS will collapse as the East Europeans flood back home and people will die, or crops will rot in the fields without the cheap imported labour or industry will flee the country as there will be no workers and the economy will collapse…not forgetting the BBC’s constant refrain that the NI border will mean terrorism makes a comeback…‘The days of the Troubles are behind us – days lived in the dark shadow of watchtowers and turrets are vanished. But now the UK is getting ready to leave the EU, and the people of the borderlands are uneasy….None of them wants a hard border, but the EU has stressed that there will have to be some form of customs control. ‘ [no surprise that the EU is insisting on a hard border…it suits their purpose to make Brexit look as difficult and negative as possible.]
The BBC makes no attempt to challenge statements made by Remain voters in their vox pops that British workers are too lazy or that Brits are racist. Curious how the BBC just accept that abuse but were up in arms when the Tories were going on about the ‘slackers’ or the ‘workshy’ and hence they tried to bring in incentives to make work pay rather than life on the dole being the acceptable option. The BBC’s answer? Leave ’em on the dole and import lots of cheap foreign labour instead. What we do hear constantly from the BBC is that the NHS, agriculture, industry needs immigration, that is, mass immigration of cheap unskilled workers...’Britain will collapse without them’ rolls off the BBC presenters’ tongues as if it were actually true. Curiously way back when in 2002 we had a budget surplus, the economy was doing great, the NHS was muddling through as always and the crops always got harvested. All without the massed ranks of East European immigrants that have since flooded into the country. And as for the NHS being underfunded….back in 1997 it was something like £42 billion per year, then Blair ramped that up to over £110 billion…and yet we’re still in a funding crisis?
Look at today’s big news…..the NHS will face a massive bill from Expats coming to the UK after Brexit….
Tens of thousands of expat pensioners may return to the UK to use the NHS after Brexit – unless a deal can be done to let them keep receiving care abroad, a think tank has warned.
Hmmm….so the BBC is scaremongering with an alarmist report that tens of thousands of expats will use the NHS and cost us a fortune. Soooo…how come they do not raise the same alarm about the 300,000 +/- immigrants who come here every year [not just a one off as with the expats] and use the NHS? Never mind the schools, GPs, housing, prisons etc etc etc….did no think tank warn us of the dangers? Maybe they did and the BBC just didn’t bother to report it…likely.
And what about all that cheap labour? Corbyn himself said it was undercutting British jobs in his election Q&A the other day and that he would limit it…turns out that was another of his lies as a leaked document suggests he will continue to flood Britain with cheap labour. The BBC has always attacked the government for what it called the ‘productivity puzzle’….productivity being too low apparently…but that’s only if you measure it per man hour…with cheap labour the calculation changes to pounds per hour…and as wages are cheap employers can employ more people to turn out the same amount of goods…so on man hours productivity looks low…but isn’t. The answer to actually improve productivity is to invest in upskilling the workforce and invest in machinery such as robots to do more work…the BBC claims we will have an economic armageddon due to Brexit as we run out of workers but that’s not true…we need people to work smart not work in sweat shops.
The BBC et al insist we need the imported workers to fund and look after our aging population…again not true…if productivity was raised by mechanisation and upskilling we’d receive more taxes and the revenue would pay for care.
The BBC solution of importing more and more people has an obvious problem…these people get old too….and then what? Import yet more people to fund and look after them as well?
The BBC’s answer is dumb, so we need smart…smart will solve the problem long term, the BBC’s dumb answer doesn’t solve it at all, it in fact makes the problem ever bigger.
