How is increasing demand for housing not related to house prices?

Apparently if you let in the equivalent of the population of Derby and not increase the housing stock nothing.

Why are they always using the Net figure?

Essentially it amounts to Government saying "as long as we can get enough Brits to flee the UK, we can keep on letting in half a million per year" ... "then we use the net figure to make it look like only a 1/4 of a Million have come in."

Brits leaving is dreadful for our economy. After years of educating, feeding, protecting, and raising them to be good decent law abiding citizens with British values and outlook. The moment they become productive, we lose them.

Great!

So each year we are building one major city, three hospitals. half a dozen police, ambulance and fire stations, a dozen schools, countless nurseries, shops, restaurants, bus stops and all the rest?

Oh wait, we're cramming these people into what we already have. Great, just great.

Bastards.

Great!

in my experience i've found that the majority of people leaving are immigrants returning home after working in this country for many years paying tax etc.

OH NO BUT WE STILL HAVE TO PAY THEIR PENSIONS!

this is true but don't forget they will no longer be a burden on our health care system.

i suppose it depends what industry you work in. we have a developed world education system that people can take advantage of if they don't want to compete with romanians and bulgarians in the kitchen porter trade.

Sorry about that. Wouldn't want to give the impression that I'm somewhat vexed about the whole situation. Honestly I'm fine with it and will dutifully keep voting for more.

I think it affects all industries. The reason there's so much competition in the higher end jobs is because everyone is 'bunched higher up'. Low paid work done by immigrants, forces Brits to have to aim higher. Brits have no choice if they want to buy a home.

The EU has essentially restarted the slave trade. It's happening right before our eyes. These immigrants are being exploited. They come thinking they can have a western style life. When they get here they see what the Brits have already worked out. Those low wages will not get you home or a western style lifestyle. In fact you'll be living in worse conditions than back in Romania etc.

It's big business and the "management/political class" exploiting cheap labour, pure and simple.

The Daily UKIP/immigrants thread!

I can remember when HPC was about house prices

Where are 260,000 extra people going to live?

Are you suggesting this extra demand, year after year, isn't going to increase house prices and rental?

If so, you have a catastrophically flawed understanding of basic economics.

As per title... fairly awkward for Cameron but surely great news for UKIP

Why are they always using the Net figure?

Did you read the article? It gives the gross figure, about 600,000 with non-EU immigration rising. The net figure is important as it gives an idea of how many school places etc you need for planning.

As a comparison France is giving around 200,000 residence permits per year (ie for non EU immigrants) and legalizing around 35,000 illegals per year. About 100,000 passports are also issued to non-French citizens. That gives around 300,000 to 350,000 new residents per year (that figure must exclude most EU arrivals probably only a very small percentage would apply for a French passport. Note also a lot of passports will be issued to people who were initially given a residence permit so there will be some duplication of figures). It is also estimated that around 100,000 illegals have crossed the land border with Italy this year although the policy is to move as many as possible on to other destinations such as the UK, asap.

Half the people have a lower than median understanding of statistical measures.

£9k a year now isn't it? With graduate numbers well above historical norms.

Hasn't increasing the number of graduates just lowered the salary for graduate jobs through basic supply and demand? In my lifetime our education system has developed to cost more and be worth less (in terms of remuneration for graduates).
