British workers left unprotected says Labour as immigration row deepens | UK news | theguardian.com

** Racism pervades both left and right in UK – what’s a South Asian-, Caribbean-, Pacific-, or African-English person to think — what me – next for the hate, mate?**

The government has failed to introduce measures to protect the rights of low-skilled British workers whose jobs may be threatened by new migrants from eastern Europe, a Labour shadow minister has claimed.

As Britain opened its borders to Bulgarian and Romanian workers on New Year\’s Day, David Hanson, the shadow immigration minister, said the government has ignored calls to strengthen existing legislation that could stop employers from undercutting British employees\’ wages by recruiting from overseas.

His comments came as the first Romanians and Bulgarians with unrestricted access to the UK labour market began to arrive amid a deepening political row.

Hebron police destroy 80 “illegal vehicles” | Maan News Agency

Palestinian police destroy people’s vehicles not registered/permitted and Israeli police and military destroy homes built without proper permits… Hmmm? So Israel may have destroyed your home and forced you out into the street to live in your car and then the Hebron police threw you out of your car and smashed your street home! Good thing you don’t presently require a permit for breathing from either police!

“Police in Hebron on Wednesday destroyed 80 motor vehicles not officially registered with the PA Ministry of Transportation.”
