Francesco Fasani

If he saw an old man working he would say bitterly, "Look at dat old - keepin' able-bodied men out o' work"; or if it was a boy, "It's dem young devils what's takin' de bread out of our mouths." And all foreigners to him were "dem bloody dagoes" - for, according to his theory, foreigners were responsible for unemployment.
