Report UK offer of citizenship to Hong Kong BNO as a way to prop up London real estate sales? in House prices and the economy Posted June 3, 2020 · Edited June 3, 2020 by Realistbear Our membership of the EU did nothing to address our housing shortage. In fact, it did quite a lot of harm as it opened the doors to as many wanted to come whether to work as car washers or simply take benefits. Not all were parasites, of course, but enough were to make a difference. The so-called "freedom of movement" policy of the EU was a cover for exploitation of cheap labour. The EU encouraged the richer countries robbing poorer ones of vital resource while homelands were left without any skilled workers. The EU's globalist ethos only saw the cost benefit of cheap labour and had no regard for family life and social disruption. The EU deserves to die and I hope it does so soon.
