Chuka Umunna a Nigerian UK citizen and politician have slammed opposition leader Nigel Farage for trying to blame foreigners for all of Britain's problems. He said comments made by the Farage is distasteful and he had to speak out because he is also a migrant to UK. He tells LBC radio
'What I find really awful is this notion that somehow all the problems in our country are caused by immigration. All the problems that you have, whether it's a getting an appointment at your GP, the fact you aren't earning enough at work, the fact your child can't get a house round the corner from you, is down to Eastern European immigration. It isn't. It's a con. It is misleading and wrong. Seeking to blame it on "that bunch over there" is a complete con.
