Why the UK imports so many foreign workers

Dalrymple relates that he recently stayed in a very good London hotel, comparable to the one where he always resides when visiting Amsterdam.

  • At the London hotel, there was not a single British employee. All staff were foreign.
  • At the Amsterdam hotel, all staff were Dutch.

He notes that in the UK, it is impossible to find British staff with the right habits and ways — or even English-language skills — to work in such an establishment. That is why Britain has to import large numbers of foreign workers despite very high levels of unemployment.

Britishers’ abysmal cultural and educational level

Dalrymple points in a speech (from 6:11) to Great Britain’s

obviously low general level of education, which you can see just by walking in the street.

It is very glaring from the moment he arrives in England (he lives much of the time in France). There is

a determined, ideological quality to the evident low cultural and educational level.

One finds in Britain

  • deliberate crudity, vulgarity and stupidity
  • lack of refinement of any kind
  • inability or unwillingness to learn even so simple a matter as how to address strangers with reasonable civility (all the more devastating in an economy that is highly dependent on the provision of services)

For this reason, Dalrymple explains, England will, whatever its level of unemployment,

continue to have to import labour if it wants to have simple services that work with tolerable efficiency. If you don’t believe me, I suggest you go to a large hotel with only a British staff. It’s amusing in a way.
