Cub scouts across the country all collectively complained today that their annual bob-a-job week was having it's worst ever year thanks to being beaten to it by eastern european economic migrants.
Spokesman for the UK branch of the Scout Association Malcolm Thomas or Akela to his boys said 'it's hopless! One of our scouts goes to help an old lady cross a road and a polish man beats him to it. If he goes to wash a car or mow a lawn he'll find a slovakian or an estonian already there with sponge in hand or flymo on the go'.
An institution such as the scouts has never had such a threat to it's do good image and fears that it will be marginalised by migrants who will do anything for work. ' It's coming to something when your being under cut on something that is a goodwill gesture' continued Akela Thomas ' all my boys want is a triangular badge for their troubles but even that isn't working anymore as the migrants are under cutting that by asking for a badge half the size'.
Scouts have been left to wander the streets aimlessly with nothing more to do than kick their well polished heels stroking their toggles and there doesn't seem to be anyway back for them in the good deed for the day market. ' What can you do when you see one pole walking a whole street worths of dogs all that the same time ' said the frustrated Mr Thomas ' as if that wasn't bad enough one of the dogs would have a shit and a little Moldavian would appear from nowhere and catch it in a doggy bag before the turd would hit the ground. We've got no hope with that sort of attention to detail'.
