Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In the UK the working class are famously racist. Labour was never entirely immune to this.

Unfortunately they don't get that immigration and job theft are always allowed because they lower wages.

So it's trivially easy for demagogues to encourage immigration for business, then turn it into a political issue at election time.
