Not many chimneys for kids to go up these days, so this is the nearest to those halcyon Victorian days that the Mail yearn for. Replace the dangers of that job with needles or broken bottles in this, a 21st century reboot, if you will. Only without the pay. Child labour for free, dressed up as environmental awareness.

More foreigners have jobs here thanks to Brexit, the Daily Mail proudly boasts.

Every Western economy and Asia is enjoying an economic upturn. Despite all this guff about taking back national control global economic forces are the most powerful factor in a nation's fortunes. Governments can still navigate booms and slumps to maximise advantage and minimise damage. The UK is riding this boom by managing to sink to the bottom of the OECD growth table.

So, our economy in the EU can thrive? Weird huh.

And more foreigners in work is now a good thing, oh Dacre?

As for the record-numbers-in-work, this is a long-running crow of the Tories, which, as far as I understand it, is based on raw 'numbers employed under a broad umbrella' than anything more incisive and telling, such as 'numbers employed in permanent posts' or 'numbers employed in education-appropriate work', etc. It's like GDP: it's only a surface sheen.

And as above, this is crowing about activity in a system Brexit is explicitly going to cock up. The 'revolution' chatter of Brexiters elides political shift with stasis in broad economic terms: this isn't Russia 1917, it's 'hey we love free trade, let's shoot ourselves in the foot because we can't act like Victorian Britain on the world stage anymore'.
