Immigration To Germany Soars As Workers Fleeing Crisis-Hit Southern Europe Join Waves Of Poles, Bulgarians And Romanians

Recommended Posts

Spanish and Portuguese friends of mine have said that London is also experiencing an influx of Iberian 30somethings, and the rate of arrivals has noticeably increased over the last year or two.

Low interest rate policy results in the failed peripheral states having continuing high asset and house prices and thus they will simply never have the conditions to start a normal economic recovery.

How long will it be before a new EU law is conjured up to make this kind of thing impossible?

Free movement of labour is all very well but not when it means that they will be moving en masse to Germany- that's taking things a bit too far.

When they demanded that the South restructure it's workforce I don't think this is kind of thing they had in mind. :lol:

In a remarkable reversal of recent history, the world is coming to Germany rather than the other way around.

Exactly. "Poland invades Germany" is just a new twist on "Man bites dog". :lol:

Odd indeed. In the sense that supposedly wages have been held down for 10 years in Germany and upped in the PIIGSS.

I guess the unions are wrong. People would rather have a low wage than no wage at all. `

It is all very well for the elite to claim that immigration is benefitting Germany/France/ Uk etc.

But what about the countries that see their skills vanishing?

This has not been well thought through.

Every time some brain dead politician witters away on TV about how immigration benefits Britain, think about how we will need to prop up the countries that theimmigrants are leaving

Probably ain't gonna happen since it benefits Germany, which has a skills shortage. The influx of other countries' youngest and brightest is manna-power from heaven.

But it's a catastrophe for the countries heading into demographic meltdown.

Economist Edward Hugh is lobbying the EU to take this more seriously and has set up a Facebook page:

Population Loss On The European Periphery is on Facebook.

Ursula von der Leyen, Germany’s minister for labour and social affairs, has a problem. It is a growing shortage of workers in Europe’s largest economy – especially skilled labour.

“The population of working age between 15 and 65 [in Germany] is shrinking,” she says. “If you look at the next 15 years, if we do not change our ways of working – which is the solution – then we will have 6m potential workers less in the labour market, which is approximately the working population of Bavaria.”

If the euro-trashing hasn't broken up the eurozone then maybe this will.

Movement of labour is part of globalisation which just means we all get poorer.

Now try explaining to the UKIP supporters that an influx of South European immigrants is "manna-power from heaven"!

I think that this is the root of the problem.

The German unemployed do not have the required skills (probably of a high level), so Germany steals brains, skills and abilities from other countries.

At my local hospital, there are a high number of Filipino personnel. They make very good nurses so we the British benefit (apparently, although in truth all we do is save on training our own nurses).

But just don't get ill in the Phillipines.

Britain set about dismantling its Empire.

In fact, we still take the best bits of these ex-empire countries by bringing thaeir brightest and ablest here.

Sort of hidden Imperialism.

On recent walks around town have noticed more people speaking Spanish (and looking a bit lost - new arrivals or a coach tour gone wrong?)
