English Democrat campaigns for British-born workers

Help

A newly-elected English Democrat councillor in Boston has said that British-born workers should be guaranteed at least half the jobs available in Lincolnshire.

Elliott Fountain, who is campaigning to become the town's mayor, believes that mass immigration has not been good for Boston and that local people are struggling to get the services they have paid for.

Local farmers have criticised the idea - claiming a cap on the jobs given to migrant workers would mean a shortage of labour in the area.
