Benefits tourists are set to get the green light to come to Britain and immediately claim handouts totalling £2.5billion a year.
According to documents leaked to the Mail, ministers have been warned that restrictions on claims by immigrants are against the law and must be scrapped.

Just what we need. Not sure why the benefit migrants don't go somewhere nicer like the Algarve or Paxos for example? :blink:

Yet more reason to leave the EU.

British Benefits only for British People.

Simple - Because it's easier to claim benefit in the UK and you get more money too.
B.all to do with the EU, all they are saying is you have to treat everyone equally.
Which is easy, just abolish social security altogether. A scrounger is a scrounger whether they are british or not.

I'm sure there must be some loophole we could use to limit it though. Most other EU countries do it so why can't we?

I don't know. But Spain's health service doesn't waste money on translators either.

In Spain you get help for a limited amount of time if you're contributed to the social security system for the required period. After that, you're on you're own.

Whether you're Spanish or British or whatever. Everyone is treated equally.

Sounds like a better system to me. If you pay nowt in then you get nowt out.

The trouble with Britain is every stray dog is given a home, no matter how flea bitten it is...

Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith is expected to try and fight the welfare restrictions being lifted.

Yeah right, promises promises.

It would be better just to hold a referendum on the UK's membership of the EU.

Not entirely true. My wife is a Spanish national and decided to have our daughter in Spain as she didn't have a good feeling about the British maternity standards.

There were several African women on the maternity ward in Asturias who had flown in for free maternity as health tourists. I'm certain they had not "paid into the system" and there was some resentful gossip around the ward. I understand this is happening in other medical wings as well.

I'm not bitter but a month later my Father-in-law died awaiting a life-saving heart operation, he had worked hard and paid generously into the social system all his life as a successful businessman but there aren't enough resources to get to him in time.

My daughter will never know what its like to have a Grandfather and we all miss him a lot.

In general I agree. My only concern is how we accomodate disabled (proper disabled not pseudo disability bs) British Children who may never have the opportunity to pay in.

Case in example is a friend of mine. Her son is disabled. She had to leave the father due to domestic violence. Specialist childcare is approximately £1800 pcm. It is cheaper to pay her to look after the child and that is no easy option for sure.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

They government policies are playing into the extreme right wing's hands.

This has got to stop.

I will be voting UKIP...then BNP at the next 2 elections.

I cant see Nazi Britain on the horizon.

The hospital would have been charging the African women for their treatment if they didn't have Spanish social security cards. Of course, whether it could actually get the bill paid is another matter.

I keep saying and no-one listens.

All these reforms people are demanding... they can't happen unless the UK drops out of the EU treties, and the lib-dems and tories aren't going to do that except as an absolute last resort.

Because contrary to popular belief, the EU was partly a British (Churchill, Club of Rome et al.) invention. The Tories were signatories to all the main sovereignty destroying treaties and they try (or used to) to claim publicly that they are opposed to a federal super-state (Thatcher's words) whilst privately supporting it. This has the effect of redirecting blame to Brussels when it actually lies a little closer to home. The EU therefore serves as a convenient whipping boy and focus for the ire of Daily Mail readers against a backdrop of ministerial deceit and lies-as-usual.

But if you read the article it implies that the requirement to have contributed to (local) SS for a qualifying period is illegal (because we have that as well).

It seems that according to the EU you're entitled to foreign SS because you have contributed to your home SS system before moving countries.

Well they are ways to go around this, maybe lower the unemployment rate and introduce a citizens allowance, which can be introduced into the tax rate, ie 3k CA then alter basic allwance the percentage change rates to take into acount the 3K. job done.

Watch my space it is going to get far worse, you were warned before the Election and ignored the dangers to come.

It does not matter who governs this country it is the faceless Freemasons locked away in that non country who now rule you.

Lets all give a great rendition of Jerusalem as we sink further into the swamp. ;)

I`ve lost the stats at present but in 2006 there were 3,000 prisoners from EU countries in our prisons costing the taxpayer £85 million and when released we were under EU law unable to deport them, most probably we paid them benefits.

The UK at the last election had a chance to end this stupidity. Unfortunately the vast majority swallowed whole the lies put forward by the big three parties and voted for them in their droves. No point in complaining about it now.
