Thoughts from an active pensioner who is now somewhat past his Biblical "Use-by date"

"Why just be difficult, when with a little more effort you can be bloody impossible?"

Surprise, Surprise - Committee announces that migration is causing unemployment amongst the British

The Mail reports today that an independent study has found that migration is killing off jobs.
Apparently this committee has discovered that 160,000 Britons have missed out on employment because work was taken by non-EU foreigners.
Do we really need a committee to tell us what is totally obvious to any one with the smallest amount of common sense?
OK, part of the problem is down to our idle youth and high unemployment pay (the bricklayer who recently did some work for me had been unable to find a British labourer), but again, do we need a committee to tell us the obvious?
I just wonder what it cost the taxpayer to be told something we knew already?
More to the point, will anything be done about it?
