More Than 400,000 Poles Enter Uk In 3 Months

Ext. - More than 400,000 Poles enter UK in three months

16:05pm 16th August 2006

More than 400,000 Poles entered the UK in a three-month surge earlier this year.

The influx, revealed by the Office for National Statistics, is keeping a lid on wage inflation and indirectly preventing the Bank of England from lifting borrowing costs further, analysts said after another relatively subdued labour market report.

According to the figures, the number of economically active was up 133,000 in the second quarter from the first and 482,000 higher, or 1.6 pct, on a year-on-year basis.

One consequence of a higher labour force has also been to increase the number unemployed, which is also indirectly helping to hold down inflation, analysts said.

The UK was one of only three EU countries in 2004 to give all the new EU citizens work rights, but seriously under-estimated the amount likely to use the right.
Instead of the expected 13,000 arrivals, around 600,000 have gone to the UK.

Gordon is a canny Scot that is for sure. Supress wages and keep IR low--the desperate measures to keep his HPI-MEW Miracle alive for awhile longer. But is it contributing to the good of the majority of people in this country? Are low wages a positive with skyrocketing bills and energy costs?

Where are 400k Poles going to live given that they cannot afford rents or houses? 10 to a room I suppose. :(

This is incredible

GB is having to attack borrowing/spending from two angles - wage supression (through mass immigration) and raised IR now (resisted for a while)

He's running out of options (and time if wants to be PM) if inflation still climbs after this heroic effort to keep people down....

I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that this and the knock on jobs displaced / wage hit to a large proportion of the prole class (for that is what they are seen as by the govt) will be the undoing of the debt bubble. The BOE do not have the guts or the political inclination to do what is necessary, the govt certainly want this to continue as long as possible - especially Gordon to get his feet under the table next door. Unemployment in some regions is nothing short of rocketing, London may be able to bimble on regardless on a wave of HMO redevelopment and mega-geared financial market activity but even that has its its limits, especially if world markets take a turn.

As much as I like Polish people [i used to live in Poland], and quite wish we could somehow swap them for arsey sharia-loving Mulsims, 600,000 imigrants in 2 years is f*cking ridiculous!

I assume after much heart-bleeding in the cabinet and talk of "robust action" and "consulation", they will in the end allow free access to Romanians [along with god know how many Roma who are essentially lazy scroungers] and Bulgarians!! :blink:

Expect racist attacks to rise from jobless British!

The hardest hit will be the existing naturalised immigrant population. It is this group that as a proportion are over-represented in casual labour, seasonal work, temps and part-time lower skilled work. It will ripple through to trades and semi-professional too in certain sectors. The real problem is this though - no jobs buffer and those on higher wages that lose their job will find a jobs market where not only can they not find an equivalent paying job quickly they may not even be able to find a poorly paid job. With high debt and high outgoings I don;t need to spell out the conseqeunces.

Jobless Total Jumps To Highest Level For Six Years

UK only W economy with rising unemployment - Miracle over?

Blair is forcing wages down but at least the poles are good people unlike much many of the parasites we have been getting for the past 40 years.

what gives MP's the right to sell us down the road and let everyone into our home land

I watched a worrying TV interview yesterday featuring on the spot street interviews of young Muslims. One with radically long hair and beard was ranting about the evil west and how Muslims are starting to assert themselves more and wearing full Muslim dress with women in Burpas. They clearly did not indentify with this country and are no longer willing to tolerate having perceived second class status. It seems that many employers are unwilling to risk hiring young Muslim men and they are becoming increasingly maginalised in the same way that African-American black males were in the US until very recently. Community efforts will clearly be needed.

Poles, on the other hand, are "western" and not perceived to be any threat at all on racial grounds. The problem is that the sheer numbers will undoubtedly cause a backlash when unemployment moves beyond its current 5.7% and dropping level. Once the jobs have gone the next wave of immigration from Romania and Bulgaria may simply put more stress on social services and the dole.

Surely it is only a matter of time that Labour actually for real bankrupt this Country :o

Im not old enough to remember the time that the UK had to go cap in hand to the IMF for a bailout loan but I have read about it. Is it possible that it could happen again or maybe they will just phone Ocean Finance this time :rolleyes:

As for the Poles. You can't bactually blaim them. They are taking advantage of Europe. There are leaving their country for a better paid life in the the UK.

However, the traditional working class labour voter will get screwed over as the Poles depress their wages. All thanks to the Labour party, the one party which should be looking out for them. :angry:

Didn't the traditional working class labour voter vote Tory a long time ago?

Yes and as both parties have betrayed them guess who they are going to turn to, when the economy starts to crumble. It is quite easy to blame the foreigner living next door for your troubles and lack of job. Now were going to see those mindless BNP thugs giving it the big I am in the not to distant present. Thanks Tony and Gorden for totally shagging my country up.

A less alarmist way of putting it is that 400,000 Poles came to Britian and probably most of them went back to Poland because the figure includes tourists and all other travellers. There are a lot more Poles here than there used to be so this could be the relatives of Poles living here coming for a visit.

12 million Britons a year enter France, but Britian isn't going to be empty in 5 years because most of them come back.

I believe 400,000 is the number that actually registered for the work scheme. This number does not include those that didn't bother registering, obviously, so is likely to underestimate the number who at least initially came over with the intenion of working.

No there are 230,000 working here, the 431,000 are trips here of all kinds, maybe they'd be migration, but mostly not, very inacurate all in all.

A different headline to the one used could be "Improving Polish economy causes British tourism boom, wage growth 5.6% year on year"

Actually the BNP aren't like that at all and right now are the best bet to stop this immigration madness. To disparage them so is to not understand their policies and who is voting for them these days. Such comments actually increase their support such is the present distaste for the PC left in the UK. A vote for them (BNP) will suceed in forcing the big 3 parties to address the immigration issue. I live in a wealthy suburb of London and lots of people (degreed high earners) would vote BNP if they actually ran in our area such is the fury with the PC brigade.

As for the poles at least they are coming here to work and not change our culture which is more than can be said for some other countries immigrants. I understand that EU immigration is becoming a problem but at least its legal and the biggest problems (crime, terrorism, disease) we are facing is from non EU immigrants. These issues are more important than unemployment and need to be fixed first.

Miracle Economics 101

1) Import goods and services from third world countries without any restrictions;

2) Import labor to do what is not possible from above;

3) Keep baby boomers happy by increasing their wealth via HPI.

1 + 2 + 3 = Lots of wealthy people around flush with cash and a lid on raises.

Here we have our miracle economy.

But, wait a minute:

What has happened to all our factories that used to make all the stuff in #1?

Where are the people in #2 going to get live, go the school, go to hospital, and park their cars?

What is going to happen to all baby boomers in #3 who did not bother saving any money (or paying stamps if self employed) for their retirements?

This economy, like all anglo economies, have been growing via self consuming debt - not exports.

The question is how it has managed to go on for so long, and the real miracle is how long can we keep it going for!

Why are we blaming the govt, Great British industry wants these people here,

and they are happy for us to foment racism so that one group of

poor is set against another - takes the heat off them.

Once we realise that the world is run by multinationals, for multinationals,

we might have a chance of regaining our freedom.

Part of the reason we have / need a governement is to stop the rich minority owners of British Industry screwing over the workers. Remember it was British Industry that instigated the global slavery trade. Bringing in cheap foreign labour is just a new more politically correct way!!!
