Must Be Some Kind Of Curse ?

Apparently, as a left-wing think tank, the IPPR is allowed to hint at the blindingly obvious:
They figures show that Somalis in Britain are the worst- off migrant group. Fewer than one in five has a job and four out of five live in subsidised council or housing association homes.
That's how decadent the British have become: now even unemployment is a job they won't do.
But some migrant groups have failed to turn educational success into economic success. Groups whose children have not done well in school include Bangladeshis, Pakistanis, Turks and Somalis.
Clearly, more research is needed to try and find if there is some kind of common factor here. Well, that or the IPPR's licence to tell the truth only goes so far.
