The Ed speaks! Vanessa Feltz, BBC Radio London

We had a bit of a strange event this afternoon…

About 0930 GMT a message came in on our contact form asking if Kay would be available to do an interview on BBC Radio London’s morning show presented by Vanessa Feltz. After a little bit of to-and-froing it emerged that today’s Daily Mail had carried an article about British expats never having had it so good – and foreign expats in the UK never having had it so bad.

Neither of us are fans of the Daily Heil, so this was a good opportunity to refute some of the simplistic nonsense it spouts. (The UK’s a terrible place to live, according to today’s piece. You watch, tomorrow there’ll be a story about the thousands of Johnny Foreigners flooding in. Funny how many of their stories seem to be about fear or envy.)
