Me? How could I know who does that menial work for you cleaning your house or apartment? Filipino, Mexican, Polish, Indian or Pakistani? You tell us.
I’m still struggling a little bit here, but I think your point is that it is bad to hire people from shithole countries (to use a classic Trump term) because they are being exploited. We may not disagree all that much on that point. But, if the alternative is to hire other than non-whites, there is a supply problem.

Any day now: Labour MP shows signs of sense of humour. Internal enquiry. MP kicked out of Party.

I love this concluding quote from the FT column of Janan Ganesh today: “Brexit, which increasingly demands to be set to the Benny Hill theme, always appealed to the kind of person who frets about the cultural left. It is a respectable thing to worry about. The mystery is how on earth it squares with devout Atlanticism. If wokery is such a menace, then turning away from an often unreconstructed Europe seems perverse. Embracing a US where so much of the western inheritance is “problematised” is even weirder. The economic case for buyer’s remorse over Brexit is sufficiently well-documented. The cultural one might turn out to be yet more haunting.”

But I guess Boris may have another thing or two on his mind today.

Now, if I were going to live in the past, I'd choose a time when men wore three-cornered hats and carried swords. To each his own.
