Us and the Other - all over again.

They keep saying there are two different things:
'working class' and 'immigrant' 
They keep saying they're separate, 
as if the 'working class' has no 'immigrants' within it, 
as if there are no  'immigrants' who are 'working class'. 
It's just a remake of that old, old thing of 'us' and the 'other'.

The moment that's done, 
then all the stuff about 'I want my country back'' falls into place.
We never had it!
It belonged and still belongs to whopping great landowners 
and the billionaire owners of capital assets. 
'We' don't own it,
so blaming immigrants doesn't give it 'back' to 'us'.
