Last year some 242,000 more people moved to the UK than left, after numbers leapt by around 45 per cent in just a year.

David Cameron has pledged to cut net immigration to the “tens of thousands” but the latest official figures show an upward trend in continuing instead.

And the rise has been partly driven by a sharp increase in the number of Eastern Europeans returning to the UK to look for work – a trend the Government’s recently imposed immigration cap cannot alter.

It has also been driven up by a 20 per cent fall in people emigrating, amid reports that many are put off by a rising cost of living abroad.

Separate figures, from the Office for National Statistics, showed one in five low-skilled jobs are now filled by migrants, fuelling concerns over jobs for British workers


Got to keep the ponzi going.

Don't worry there are plenty of jobs, houses and resources to go round.

Hundreds of thousands of empty houses in London apparently, this is just the job.

There will be no solution to this problem whilst we remain in the EU. No matter how quickly people in the UK are leaving, they cannot outpace the rush coming in.

Anecdotally, my Missus has a thing for going to car boot sales on a Sunday, she loves finding tat going cheap then whacks it up on Ebay and makes a few quid.. It keeps her amused so what the heck.

What strikes me now at these car boots, is how it's pretty much all foreigners buying.. mainly Eastern Europeans. You hardly hear a native-English voice.

My partner haggles as hard as the Eastern Europeans, but the sellers seem to be grateful to finally speak to an English person and by all accounts give her a better discount.

Constant growth the cancerous cure, a swarming race of profiteers ensure cheap cars for the rich, cheap lives for the poor, cheap weeks in the sun, free drinks at the door. Puerile propaganda plugs up the TV, keep folk following the money so they'll never be free.

Bankrupt schools grind out fool after fool then feed them to a system where idiots rule. Polling booths, phone votes, bogus questionnaires, you get a say as if anybody cares. Joe Public doesn't want to play so liquidate his life as he looks the other way.

Yup a trend on motorbike forums is that you get a lot of Polish people turning up in large vans or 7.5 ton lorries and hoovering up 2nd hand bikes like no tomorrow. My Africa Twin was sold to such a bloke a couple years ago, his van was filled with motorbikes. Filled in the export part of the V5c. Bikers tend to like it because poles can't haggle for toffee.

Just seen the word "not" on your post, had to edit my post.
Yes that 245000 more unemployed whether existing residents or this lot, and plenty more downward pressure on wages, and a need for a town the size of Plymouth to house them. GRR

This has been discussed on this forum many times.

But, its a fact that immigrants create a net gain to the public coffers, despite all the verbose xenophobic rhetoric that will rear its head every time the topic comes up.

Damn lies and statistics. If that was the case then there would be no borders. Historically you may have had a point but it's different now, we have reached saturation point.

High property prices increase: living costs; production costs; and government costs - hence all prices , and taxes!


This also reduces Britain's international competitiveness, impoverishing all of us, including property owners




And NIMBYism is evil.

Look. Despite what you think of the government and policy makers in this country, there are intelligent people behind the scenes doing the calculations, and if immigration was bad for the UK, I 100% guarantee that it would not be happening.

Secondly, I don't see how any part of the UK is 'saturated'? Do you mean saturated by a race, creed, or colour that isn't pasty white and Christian?

I bet they do, by effectively screwing down wages massively, eg in the care sector.

Is that a fact in the same way its cheaper for the government to pay a family's SMI than have to house them through the council?

There is no ladder.

No need to sell up, the next phase of the economics cycle is going to be very positive for anyone that owns property.

All I'm sayings is, don't listen to the property bears people, they are wrong.

Is this a joke?

Everytime a low skilled immigrant with no money comes into the UK he puts a native Brit on the dole.

It is not the case if he is bringing wealth with him, or investing in the UK.

If immigration is a net gain to the public coffers than why this?

I don't make the rules, but if I did, I'd have every non-working British born chav sent to Antarctica to eek out a new life.

But, this is how things are, and you either accept it, or you don't. There is a big world out there, full of injustices.

Having Bogdan or Svetlana the care worker on your ward should be the least of your concerns.
