According to the latest news from Westminster, unemployed Britons are to be put at risk of losing benefits if they do not seek work. But where will they find even menial employment when jobs are being taken by migrant workers who are paid below the legal minimum wage?

Migration Watch UK explains that the migrant workers faced with low wages in their own country will come to Britain to find work which, even at the lowest rate paid by British employers, is four to five times what they can earn in their own country.

But what has this got to do with workers in Fenland?

Just about everything, according to Malcolm Moss, MP for North-East Cambridgeshire, who, in a blatant attempt to steal UKIP's high ground, recently asked: "Where have all the jobs gone (in the food processing industry)?" Any unemployed British worker could tell him the answer.

There are three solutions to the national and local unemployment problem:

1 Make it illegal for employers to exploit workers by paying low wages;

2 Take back control of our national borders;

3 Britain should leave the EU.
