Backlash against MP Jim Paice’s comment

PUBLISHED: 10:42 17 March 2014 | UPDATED: 10:43 17 March 2014

MP Jim Paice’s comment caused outrage both in my family, in my place of work and in my church group, and to think we voted for this hateful man.

He called the unemployed English people lazy and workshy, when it was his party that brought in all the foreign workers to take our jobs.

After the Second World War when all the soldiers that fought the war for the government were being demobbed the government in a vile speech said the Englishmen were too lazy to work and we will have to bring in people from the West Indies to do the work.

This evil man has insulted the British soldiers once again and all the British people as a whole, and this will be reflected in the next elections.
