One thought on “Five of the top fifty Labour achievements since 1997 – III”

  1. Laughing loudly Ron shakes his head. New Deal? Last time I stood in a DSS office they were knocking natives off. Pourquoi? 2 million Poles and East Europeans. Translator? £180 per hour. Dole £60 per week. 3 UK citizens dole equals an hour of getting Mr & Mrs Kowalkskis forms filled. Oh, who lied about the number of Slavs here? I was told less than 100 claimants in ’09. S’funny but there were that number in ONE office I attended. I didn’t come down the Lagan on a cabbage leaf!
