Everyone should be watching #Dispatches right now. One of my friends who works in the NHS has been repeatedly told by patients that they voted Leave to send people like him home.
He's from northern Ireland.
#Dispatches Depressed watching Caroline Noakes respond with plastic, scripted answers on immigration showing how little govt has engaged with real consequences.
A govt desperately committed to blocking freedom of movement - without ever having engaged with what it really means.
It’s difficult to put into words the anger and utter sadness I feel when I hear immigrant carers saying patients ask for a British nurse and ask them when they’re going home. What the hell is this? #Backtothe70s #Dispatches #Whentheimmigrantsleave
I think nurses should be allowed to tell their fuck nut patients who ask 'when they're going back to their country' and if they can have a British Nurse to go fuck themselves with no repercussions
A patient told me recently, ‘well, you are going to go back home soon, right?’ And I told him, well this is my home at the moment.

I got to the first commercial break in #Dispatches and turned it off. Brexit (IMHO) has "legitimised" & emboldened racism / intolerance to others & it makes me sick. The problem isn't with the EU. It's a lot closer to home...
What a ******* ****** #Brexit #c4
This British fruit farmer is almost entirely dependent on EU #migrants to work on his farm - he also voted for #Brexit.
#Dispatches investigates how a lack of EU migrants could affect Britain's workforce #racism #UK #GTTO
As someone who visits care homes daily for my job, trust me when I say that care homes survive on European & se Asia immigration. A no deal #brexit will drive the sector to a massive crisis, with vulnerable people put at risk. #c4dispatches #Dispatches https://t.co/vl8bTXE3GX
Using cheap labour to fill positions Brits won't do is just a sticking plaster solution. 28 years ago I left school and did unskilled agency work cutting grass for £7.50 an hour. How on earth can minimum wage only be £8.18 nearly 30 years later? This is the problem #Dispatches
It’s become more difficult with Brexit to recruit. We’ve had little interest from overseas because of the sheer fact of ‘will I or won’t I be able to stay?’

Well, what an episode of #Dispatches that was. The United Kingdom walking straight into a labour shortage all of its own making. If it wasn’t so serious, the contradictions of Brexit would be hilarious.
How dumb, pig ignorant and rude do you have to be to ask a nurse who is helping you when they are going back to their own country! Want a British nurse? We’ll lie there & suffer until one turns up! #Brexit #Dispatches
@lisa61072153@southcoasting Bollocks it has. The reason for depressed wages is being a part of a union has dropped dramatically in the last 40 years of neo liberalism. The bosses have convinced people that migrants are at fault - when its the bosses who are taking the piss out of all of us #Dispatches
It’s scandalous the state we have got ourselves into. It really is. Heartbreaking that people who came here to work, fill a role we needed filled and build a life feel unwelcome. I’m ashamed. We should apply the handbrake before it’s too late. #Dispatches
@JuliaCHowie@EsjaySk8 They should be allowed to say: 'Sorry, I cannot treat you as you want me to leave the country, I am now leaving you and I hope you do not have to wait too long for a white British nurse to tend you.....' They'd be waiting hours..
The British recruiter wants Romanian university students & graduates to be his fruit pickers in England. He wants to pay peanuts but doesn’t want monkeys, f***ing prick.

#Dispatches This programme on Britain without EU workers covers the Care Homes & that the majority of workers there are from the EU. It did not mention the crucial issue that the CARE HOMES are PRIVATISED. They pay appalling wages & their motive is profit.
Is it any wonder Carers who care for disabled and elderly citizens are little thought off when Facebook make comments like this, it does make me wonder how far these views have spread https://t.co/N0tyKfR5bC #Dispatches
#Javier, lamento este insulto... queremos que te quedes aquí - este país necesita gente buena como tú. (I'm sorry for this insult... we want you to stay here - this country needs good people like you.)

#Dispatches If you take away the stake immigrants have in their adopted country by making them leave after 6-12 months, you take away their incentive to contribute as much as they can. If you give them the chance to stay and build a life, they will give their best.
