I'm disgusted with labour they reckon to be for British workers rights when all they want is more people in the country pushing wages down. Then have the cheek to say as many people go abroad to work or emigrate they forget that if we move abroad we have to have the where with all to live, or your not welcome, the ones coming here come with nothing, work for next to nothing so undercutting our people. All the politicians want to stay in Europe for is when they are kicked out of office here they can go and get a job in the EU parliament unelected. Well I'm here to tell you the British public are not silly and they will vote to leave because we all love our country. I believe in us.

25 year old Romanian man with his wife and 1 child works a 35 hour week on minimum wage of £7.20 per hour. What will he get for a years work in the UK? £13104 pay (paying tax above £11000 and NI).All figures taken from the Directgov tax credit website. £3328 in Child tax credit,£2041 in Working tax credit, £1076 in Child benefit with free Prescriptions/Dental care for all the family. 1000's of these workers coming to our shore. I'm not sure how these workers are paying for our Hospitals and Schools as is claimed.

Thousands of ex council houses rented out as multiple occupancy dormitory accommodation to low paid foreign workers. Their rent goes to landlords abroad who avoid paying tax in this country. Neighbourhoods collapse.
Somebody thinks this is great I suppose?

Policy makers favour immigration to tackle shortage of skilled Labour and low indigenous birth rates, have to fix that problem first before you can tackle the immigration one.

Who was it who sold off the council houses? Conservatives and they're doing it again. Who set up Tax Credits? Labour and I wouldn't have survived the last ten years without it! I don't think it is just the skills which are missing, it's the will to work from UK nationals which partly drives immigration. If they're willing to work, why not? Surely there are plenty of Brits in other EU countries doing the same. My cousin went to live in Paris many moons ago and when she was made redundant the French Government kept her in the style she had grown accustomed to - not bad. Wages here need to be better with less need for supplementing with Tax Credits. I know this is a complex problem but I don't think it is all due to the immigrants. Mind you, I wasn't best pleased when I heard that the highest number of immigrant prisoners were Polish & Romanian. That stinks!

President Erdogan gave all women something to think about during the fast. Addressing Turkey’s Women and Democracy Association in Istanbul he said a woman who rejects motherhood is ‘deficient’ and ‘incomplete’. By working, she ‘is denying her femininity’.
Do remainers serisouly want to be in a political union with this mysogynistic fascist pig and have an open border with this country?

Personally I think the level of service in shops, bars, restaurants and pretty much anywhere else you find an EC national has improved beyond recognition in recent years. Surly, chippy Brits just can't bring themselves to do it properly

Following on from my post on Tuesday - if we had a policy such as the one in Sweden whereby maternity leave is over a year at 80% of full pay families have more children. Then you don't have to plug the gaps in your workforce with immigration.

So... where would you prefer the highest number of immigrant prisoners came from?
