Stephen, 17, from Chichester, who was unable to vote in last year’s referendum, ripped into the Brexit Secretary after he said the Government was not about to “suddenly shut the door” on foreign workers during a visit to Estonia.
He said: “I’m unemployed, I really want a job and politicians like David Davis say we need immigrants because young people don’t work hard enough, they won’t do the jobs that immigrants do they want benefits – it’s simply not true.
“I work damn hard and I’m really looking for a job, there’s just simply too many people out there in the jobs market and that’s because of overpopulation.”
The caller bashed David Davis for saying the UK would continue to use EU workers

He said competition was too fierce to be able to secure a job.
“I was trying to find a job on a jobs website, one job [had] 179 applications – how am I meant to compete against that?” said Stephen.
“It’s simply not true that young people don’t work hard. All my friends we all want jobs, we’re all looking for jobs but there’s simply too many people in this country.
“And the amount of immigrants that come in, it’s a mass amount. I know we need immigrants we definitely them for the economy to run but we simply have too many and we need to control our borders.”

The former Ukip leader asked if the teenager would consider taking on a low-paid job.
“I would take any job,” replied Stephen. “I wouldn’t take a really low-paid job, like £2.95 an hour or something but I would work just as hard as an immigrant would.”
Farage agreed with the caller and called out politicians for “slagging off” the caller’s generation.
He added: ”From Tony Blair onwards there have been many politicians slagging off your generation for being useless, lazy and wanting something for nothing."
