16million people have savings of less than £100. This should be the biggest scandal in the UK, says James O'Brien. So why are the front pages talking about immigration yet again?

Speaking on his LBC show, he said: "I don't want to live in a country like this.

"16million people with less than £100 in the bank. And still, what's on the front page of The Daily Mail? Some bishop banging on about bloody migrants. Every flipping day.

"How would you live with less than £100. How do you get through the day? What's your life like, compared to the people telling you to blame all your problems on immigration? 16million people with less than £100.

"'How did you let this happen, Dad?'

"'Sorry son, blamed it all on Romanians and some Muslims. Selling your birthright down the river, turning our country into a client state, sucking up to Russian oligarchs whose money couldn't be filthy, it's what the politicians were doing.'

"'What were you doing, Dad?'

"'I was shouting at Muslims, son. I was getting cross about mosques.'"
