"one of the constant quotes from recent immigrants that irks me is 'we work and pay taxes', for their information native born Britons have done this for centuries to earn 'rights' immigrants demand on arrival.

"YES. When you go out all you can see is the towns full of non indigenous people who are NOT employed, they are just walking around, all put here for the purpose of voting for labour, nothing else."

So angry that she refuses to punctuate. I would like to go to a school collage:
I dont think that we should have any more imigrant workers come here as there are yougsters here that have left school collage or university and can not get a job I have 3 nephews and my granddaughter and her friends that have sent for jobs gone to interviews and then been told sorry we want someone with experience how are they to get the experience if no one is going to employ them it is no wonder that there is a lot of crime in this country the young ones out there are getting frustrated
i know you find it hard to find a job too
To rephrase the question.
Should immigration be regulated by the coutry concerned?
Should a country choose which people come and live there?
Should a country choose immigrants on the basis of the benefit they offer to the society they are joining?
Should people immigrating to a society show some evidence of a desire to integrate, e.g. learning the language / Having a job?
When you put it like that, , ,

"Immigration / Migration - I don't believe the numbers.
Our Govt really is playing around with Statistics again , I think.
We have been told the Population of the Uk is 60 Million for YEARS.
I estimate that by now, it it closer to 70 Million - and that is without taking into account the kigher proportion of Children that Immigrants tend to have - Any takers?

Gee. Tez might be onto something here. Censii and birth/death rates just seem too unbelievable to be true.
and done a quick head-count, hasn't he?

Well tbh I can barely understand the illiterate fucknuts who cold-call either
"It is already too late. Britian has gone down the toilet!
The only way ahead is to reduce the population by 20-30 million, knock down around 5 million houses to reclaim our countryside & undo the ruined environment, and look after No. 1. We won't need water meters, congestion taxes, CPZ's, or as much gas/electricity. The perfect country!
It won't happen as the government need a 'slave' soceity to mantain their high wages and keep control over the indigious population by 'divide & conquor'.

The immigration levels in Luton have had a dramatic effect on school places. My daughter was due to move from primary to secondary school but has not secured a local place and we are having to loose one salary to educate her at home. All the immigrant pupils in her last class seem to have got places though. As a result of this we have now had to make a decision to move locations and I will have to relocate my company in another part of the UK.

If it wasn't for eastern european workers doing agricultural work that Brits refuse to do our food bill would far higher than it currently is.
If we took away unemployment benefits after 3 months and only gave it to those over 21 then the layabouts would have to go out and find a job.
Agriculture would be overrun with 16-21 year olds who'd be glad to work for £15K a year, our tax bills would be reduced & the cost of food would not go up.

Britain is built on immigration.Since the beginning of time we have been shaped by invaders from accross the world:
Romans 43-410 ad
Angles, Saxons, jutes, Frisians, franks circa 400-600 ad
Blah, blah, blah
Indians and Chinese 1700
And the we get the Europeans, Poles, Germans, Italians…
So what's new?
The numbers, that's what's new! Only an idiot would fail to see that it is the sheer weight of numbers that is going to destroy us soon!

"Limiting foreign workers will not limit the 'refugees' that get in a claim all the benefits. I find it odd that I, as a kiwi, can come and work here, pay my visa fees, pay taxes, vote, etc, and yet cannot claim any assistance from the government. Yet some can come here on a claim of 'oppression' and get everything handed to them on a plate."
Yes! Let's violate our international obligations in order to get more skilled kiwis into the country. Fucking tosser.
"over the past 20 years the country has lost its identity to liberal do-gooders who cant see beyond the multitude of problems our country already suffers with and instead is too concerned with the ridiculous claims for human rights of everyone else."
