A UKIP councillor has tried to blame immigrants … because he is behind on his own council tax. Portsmouth’s Paul Godier was banned from voting on proposals for £13.1m worth of cuts at Portsmouth City Council because he is behind on payments to the authority. It has not been revealed how much he owes.
And it’s all because they came over here and bloody took his job:
“I have spent years as a low-skilled dockyard worker, but I can’t get any work in the dockyard because of the uptake of low-skilled foreign workers.
The gaffe comes a week after his party leader Nigel Farage was widely ridiculed for suggesting immigrants using the M4 made him late for a date with members who had paid £25 for the privilege of dining with him.
Cllr Godier is no stranger to these pages, having previously told a shocked council meeting that he used to be a drug dealer — before denying he said anything of the sort.
Presumably it’s also immigrants’ fault that he is housed by the local authority and continues to draw his councillors’ allowance of £10,382?
