@RTT_Rules I agree. Jeremy Corban was an MP when I was 19. He werent much chop then and he isnt now. However the gap between rich and poor is worsening under Tory austerity which is making the UK the most unequal country in Western Europe.
Lets hope Boris Will get he deal across which although isnt great is better than no deal.
From the Brit's I know and associate with they will tell you why the gap is increasing, immigration from lower income countries competing against each other to do the jobs the Brit's in general don't want to do and willing to lower their standard of living to get the work.
Think Australia, there was a time a migrant could come and and join the long list of labour intensive jobs that Aussies were becoming too good for and/or lack of available labour. Snowy Scheme being the classic example. I also remember as a kid the Italian track gangs in Sydney, not speaking English and the Pacific islanders building the tracks in NW WA, Qld coal mines and SG up to Alice. Again manual labour in hot remote locations. Then we have the usual council workers etc etc etc. Today, those jobs are gone. So they are competing for the reducing number of lower paid jobs that immigrants can do without good English and/or recognized education. Typically ending up as drivers these days.
The bulk of the Brexit argument is based stopping the flow of unskilled and low skilled migrants, mostly Polish, Romanian, Pakistani, Indian, various African nations and to be honest with this I totally agree with. Western countries like UK and Aust have almost no demand for migrants who cannot do middle white collar or higher skilled blue collar jobs. We don't need more taxi drivers, bus drivers, truck drivers etc and in a few years these jobs will start to evaporate as well thanks to autonomous driving and other technologies.
The UK also have very friendly migration policies vs Australia, for example children born in Australia are only entitled to Aussie Citizenship if one of their parents has a PR, Citizenship or after 10 years and even then it doesn't extend to the parents. I'm aware of Pakistani's in Dubai who flew or planned to fly to UK when their wife is heavily pregnant simply to get citizenship.
Also remember the UK was never equal and always had a legacy of Lord over servant, where as most of Western Europe dumped their Monachy's and associated feudal systems into obscurity decades ago and what remains is a tiny fraction of the what the UK has retained.
As for austerity, sooner or later you have to learn to live off your own income, something most of the EU is struggling to come to terms with. Can we repeat the words, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Ireland...........
