UK English Tutor Notes ‘Migrants’ More Interested in Benefits Than Jobs

Government Language Tutor Claims Migrants Only Interested in Benefits, Boast They’ll Never Work

A woman employed teaching English to migrants with so-called refugee status has revealed students have no interest in learning the language or getting a job, and are mostly interested in the benefits they can extract from taxpayers.

The teacher, who identified herself as ‘Janet’, rang Nick Ferrari’s morning show on London’s LBC to discuss her experience of giving taxpayer-funded English classes to Syrians and other migrants granted asylum.

The call followed an exchange between Mr Ferrari and charity ActionAid’s boss, Mike Noyes, on the 20,000 Syrians the government has agreed to resettle.

After Mr Noyes expressed his approval of the scheme, which is projected to cost £1.7 billion in the first four years alone, and spoke highly of the £10 million set aside to teach the newcomers English, Janet said she felt compelled to tell her story.

Telling the LBC host she teaches the sorts of people Mr Noyes referred to, Janet described the situation with English language lessons as a “mess”.

She explained: “We have so many students and they don’t turn up. They don’t want these lessons and they’re not really interested in learning English.”

Mr Ferrari questioned her, asking: “When you say they don’t turn up, do you mean these special classes [that are paid for by the government]?”

Janet replied: “Special classes that they don’t have to pay for, and obviously we pay for it”.

“It’s so so frustrating. I love teaching them, they’re lovely people when they do turn up but a lot of them don’t turn up. They’re simply not interested in learning English.

“A lot of them have been here for many many years now, and when I was teaching English for employment some of them refused to go because they said ‘Well I don’t want to work. I don’t want to work so I don’t want to learn English for employment’.

Stunned, Mr Ferrari said: “So the natural extension of that is they were happy to live… I’m assuming they’re happy to live off the welfare state.”

Janet confirmed, stating: “That is what they’re doing”.

Asked how it makes her feel, she told the LBC presenter: “Well I’m quite honest with them, and I tell them how I feel. Like I say look, this is crazy, but… the next day after we left Europe a lot of them… a lot of them, their main concerns were will we still get housing benefit, will we get our College courses paid for and yes it’s extremely frustrating. Extremely frustrating”, Janet added.

Mr Ferrari asked what the students say when challenged. Sounding forlorn, Janet paused before telling him: “They really don’t care. I know it sounds horrible and I do like a lot of these students, don’t get me wrong, but… it makes me so angry”.

Before Janet’s call, Mr Noakes assured the LBC presenter that refugees in Britain “fund themselves”, claiming every study shows refugees pay back taxpayers’ “upfront investment” in taxes from working.

Earlier this year, a former advisor to European Commission president Manuel Barroso promised that the more than a million migrants who arrived in Europe last year “could repay spending on them almost twice over within just five years”.

“Refugees will create more jobs, increase demand for services and products, and fill gaps in European workforces – while their wages will help fund dwindling pensions pots and public finances”, Phillip Legrain contended.

While it’s uncontroversial that non-European migrants will increase demand for services and products, there is no real-world evidence to back up Mr Legrain’s other assertions.

A government study found that 65 per cent of refugees who entered the Netherlands in the 1990s are unemployed today, and paper notes the majority of the 35 per cent who have jobs are “ex-Yugoslavs”.

Across the continent, the unemployment rate for non-European migrants is twice that of the native population, while Migration Watch calculated that their cost to British taxpayers was £16 billion in the year to 2015.

  1. The West started with the Romans and finished with Merkel’s madness and the EU, and to think that the European political class brought this on their people as a deliberate policy.

    Such feminised, socialist, and compassionate policies will ensure that the Western civilisation will be the first civilisation to be extinguished due to an excess of compassion.


  2. Muslims won’t work for the infidels? No, it can’t be!
    Who could have predicted that Muslims would rather choose to collect the Jizya from the infidels, then to work for the infidels? Who could have predicted that?
    Probably only those racist, bigoted, Islamophobic right-wingers!


  3. It does not take a lot of digging to find Merkel’s deeper motivations about inviting in so many migrants, which has profoundly affected all of Europe and the UK. It is a concern about Germany’s shrinking population and the fear the businesses in Germany will leave if they do not have enough workers. So, to enlist ‘cheap labor’ the flood gates were opened, not considering what this article clearly points out, that many of those ‘refugees’ coming in are illiterate or nearly so, many are disinclined toward becoming educated in their host countries (too many things which conflict with Sharia law, like the whole concept of democracy). And I suspect a good number are shiftless and dare we say it, lazy.

    The long term costs of feeding, housing and health care for these hordes of Muslim people will far surpass any gains that those Muslims who do work will bring to their host countries. Some, in YouTube videos, even brag about having very large families, with the idea that within a few generations, demographically, there numbers will surpass those of Europeans who typically have smaller families or some, no children. This is openly stated as one of their goals.

    It won’t work to try to ‘outbreed’ them, the key is to admit far far fewer of them in. Those darling children in photographs will grow up to be full grown adult Muslim men and women, with views about the evils of the West firmly implanted in their minds, a toxic brew if ever there was one.


  4. This article is about ‘locals’ in France protesting a Muslim woman from Australia, who chose to exhibit her ‘burkini’ on a French beach, clearly to inflame people there. She traveled all the way from Australia to France just to make her point.

    The comment she made which was the most ludicrous was that Islam has no connection with terrorism, hmm … seems ISIS and many other radical Islamic groups (many of which use a strict interpretation of their ‘holy’ book, the Koran) have a different idea.

    Wished to share this with other readers of this site, though it may be ‘off topic’ on this particular issue noted in the article above, but does show the sharp divide between Muslims and non-Muslims in many parts of the world. And how they seem intent on foisting their ‘values’ and customs on every one, every where.
