Whatever your views on Brexit, you're probably not as confused as this man.

Having emigrated from Ireland aged 15 to work in the UK, he has now told RTE's Six One News that he will be voting to leave because immigrants are taking jobs in the UK.

Here's his quote in full:

The vote will be to get out and as quick as possible.

For the simple reason: I left Ireland when I was 15 years of age, I had no other choice.

Our work has been taken up by thousands and thousands of people crossing over into Britain and that’s the reason I’ll definitely be voting to leave.

Essentially, his position is that immigrants benefiting from work opportunities is a bad thing... unless it's him.
