huh.gif Our local paper every week has a section of days goneby, i suppose lots of locals do this they generally give press reports of the time about things in the area, this week the report from 1914, set out a warning against as they put it Aliens immigrating to G.B, the thought being that we were a soft touch and this increasing trend of paople coming here would lead to problems , Sounds familiar

Don't tell me they were coming here at a time when there no benefits being handed out. How silly of them!

Britain has always been a safe haven for people from abroad escaping religious and political oppression.Huguenots and Jewish people are good examples of people who have came here and made good.

The more people who come here as a result of lying their way into the country then the less people who will get here who are in real danger. Time to sort the wheat from the chaff so that we can help those in real need and not those who want a cushy life on benefits at our expense!!

Todays Govt. figures show EU immigrants have produced a net 5 billion contribution to Britain .

An excellent return from 20 billion gross !.

5 billion for Britain from EU immigrants and even if you believe the figure they dont take in social or health or education or.... etc etc etc!!

And the figure is nothing compared to the 120 billion that we have paid for immigrants who come from outside the EU!!

mass immigration creates more competition in the workforce and as a result more UK citizens may be out of work, did the analysis take into account more benefits paid out for higher 'indigenous' unemployment?
Did it take into account the schools problems in dealing with kids with no knowledge of English, or the costs to the NHS when interpreters would be hired for patients who couldn't speak English?

I dont think anyone could argue that educated professionals dont contribute towards the tax coffers, but the problems are the numbers of low skilled workers who came over. With more people applying for jobs employers can get away with offering less money or conditions, never a good thing for whoever gets the job.

These figures are simply an " accounting " statement.

No shades of grey,

They prove EU Immigrants pay their way.

They generate 20 billion

They cost the state 15 billion

They contribute 5 billion net.

Now you and the other critics will have to find other reasons to vilify them ?

British people living in EU have same status as EU people living in Britain !.

I have no problem with people who leave their country to find a better life for their kids, as i said in another thread one of my kids had 4 polish children join their class, they became close friends and still are today, i've always found them and their family to be very pleasant and would have them here over some of the scumbags walking the streets today

Now getting that out of the way people like yourself will always jump on anything that fall within their political view while they have their blinkers on, to say they are a net benefit is simplifying it to the nth degree. There are negatives which i've already pointed out, you just disregard this simply because you cant see anything past your line of sight.
Its not all about the money, something i'm quite confused about when it comes from a so called socialist. If as you say they pay their way then the dismantling of Scotlands industrial base was good common sense because it was not making money, closing post offices that while serving the community loses money is also the right thing to do.. The negatives around these decisions dont matter because getting rid of them makes good financial sense, in the short term anyway.

When a Tesco opens up in a town the close minded just ignore the negative impact in the main street shops closing, they turn a blind eye to the vacant plots being took over by takeaways, betting and charity shops. Well the new Tesco is making a profit so everything is good isn't it, anyone who disagrees is obviously a closet Tescoist rolleyes.gif
