It is uncomfortable that the people most alarmed by the night of chicken shop raids are the employees: young teenage brothers from Pakistan who are obliged to show inspectors their living quarters above the shop, students from Bangladesh, who watch with growing unease as border officials check their papers.
The people with these less than minimum wage jobs are rather keen to keep them.
Sir Robin Wales has no affection for chicken shops…….. It makes sense for us to cut out this exploitation of people. While a raid like this will be difficult for those people [who are being exploited],
In other words, Sir Robin knows when you\’re being exploited better than you do.
Take up the White Man\’s burden!
Have done with childish days–
The lightly-proffered laurel,
The easy ungrudged praise:
Comes now, to search your manhood
Through all the thankless years,
Cold, edged with dear-bought wisdom,
The judgment of your peers.
