  1. The figures are skewed because all the white people who have been made unemployed are Poles or Spanish working in hospitality and who have all gone home.

  2. Since there’s no work for them, obviously a strict policy of forbidding any BAME immigration to the UK should be instituted immediately.

  3. “the BME unemployment rate shot up from 5.8% to 9.5% between the final quarter of 2019 and the final quarter of 2020 – an increase of nearly-two thirds. ”
    Then they get a more granular figure for a sub-set of that lot
    “The unemployment rate for Black African and Caribbean workers has risen to 13.8%”
    That seems to me that the unemployment rate for the ME part of BME has not shot up, possibly not risen much at all. So for there to be a structural racism effect going on is an unproven claim.
    I suspect that a lot of so-called white workers have returned to their home countries in Eastern and Southern Europe and are showing up in the labour force data there hence the smaller rise for white unemployment. But why ME unemployment hasn’t risen much would be interesting to know.

  4. Covid means more people working at home, so fewer opportunities for burglary and mugging. And the bottom has fallen out of the pimping and drugs markets. So any self-respectin’ black low-life will sign on.

  5. When did Prem Sikka (ex professor of bean-counting at some shit Uni) become an Economist? Before or after Murphy?

  6. The trouble is that ‘economist’, unlike say ‘architect’, is not a protected title. Anyone can call themselves an economist, vide Spud passim.
