“A Conservative MP has said young people should “get on their bikes” and take farming jobs where they can work with “loads of gorgeous EU women”.
Craig Mackinlay, the MP for South Thanet, told a fringe meeting at the Conservative conference in Manchester that British youngsters needed to show the same motivation as low-skilled workers from elsewhere in Europe.
“I was struggling to think why wouldn’t a youngster from Glasgow without a job come down to the south to work for a farm for the summer with loads of gorgeous EU women working there?” he said.
“What’s not to like? Get on your bike and find a job.”
