    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    He created a mad amount of assists the season before last. Did nothing of note last season though. He's meant to have the best cross in the Bundesliga.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    A. I do not benefit personally B. i do not have any dislike for multiculturalism C. I hold no grudges against any Eastern European migrant playing the system at their disposal for their or their families benefit. D. I'm not particularly nationalistic, although I may come across as nationalistic on here (in a vacuum) because the general consensus is to hate the country and everything that's happening within it - including our historical political figures.

    I mean illegal workers. Workers that are here illegally.

    I can extrapolate what you mean by it though, the sewer worker, the fruit pickers, the cockles farmers of Morecombe Bay. The reason why I object to that line of reasoning is because it's simply not true. Most of these jobs are done by illegal workers. They are often paid by the amount of produce they pick as opposed to an hourly salary, and they are paid far far below minimum wage levels. They aren't in the system as a PAYE. They aren't paying taxes to HMRC or national insurance contributions. They get paid cash at the end of the week or work day. I had this discussion with Stronts on here about 6 months ago where he seriously believed that British workers wouldn't pick fruit for £8.21 per hour. Of course they would. What you mean is British workers wouldn't pick 1000 apples for £2.50, but that's entirely logical. What you're asking of them is illegal. It's a slave wage. So that gets misconstrued to mean British workers are lazy or work shy because they refuse to be treated like a slave. So what you're really advocating is one of two things. You're either condoning the farmers and the people that exploit workers in that manner - and think they should be left alone, or you want British workers to remove any sense of entitlement they possess and work in what ostensibly amounts to a colonial slave economy.

    With all due respect, I haven't disputed that Brexit will have an effect on certain industries - it'll have an effect on the whole country for a while. I'm disputing the "British people won't do these jobs" narrative you're pushing. You still haven't named what these specific jobs are.

    Well I used facts like English being the most popular second language in the world to back up my argument. You used fallacies that have no basis in reality - outside of socialist blogs. Can you elaborate on specific jobs that British people won't do please? because the whole basis of your argument is that Estonian immigrants are an asset to the economy because they do jobs that British people won't do. It's kind of important to know what these jobs are.

    This is the "British people won't work those jobs" logical fallacy that i've rebuked about ten times on here. What jobs, specifically, will British people not do? And have you spoke to all 65,000,000 of them individually to gain this consensus?

    The necessity is not there. So you can't ascribe it to laziness. It's simply unnecessary for a British person (who lives and works in Britain) to learn a foreign language, in a way that it's not for an Estonian that aspires to live in Britain. What part of that is not common sense?

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Maybe British people don't feel the need to learn another language because they live in one of the most prosperous societies on Earth and their language is the most learnt second language in the world. Just a thought.

    The distain with which you talk about British people stands you in good stead with your EU masters.

    Good, let them go. They will not be missed.

    It's great for workers from countries with weaker economies. However, for the established economies it doesn't offer anything positive to the average worker. You don't see droves of British workers flooding into Estonia for work do you?

    Can't see anything other that Allen knocking him out. I don't think Price hits as hard as people claim and his gas tank and mental game isn't there.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    A system where you can hire from a pool of 350 million people - as opposed to 65 million. Where everyone is pitted against each other - in a race to the bottom, to see who can accept the least wages to work the hardest. A Capitalist wet dream. Ironically backed by a bunch of faux socialists on here.
