EU ECONOMIC REFUGEES FLOCK TO BRITAIN – With all the gusto David Cameron has been putting into trying to convince Parliament, and failing, to engage in military strikes against Syria, it’s a pity he doesn’t concentrate on the important issues at home.
With the worsening financial crisis in Spain, Greece and Portugal the UK is now seeing tens of thousands of economic refugees flooding into Britain; this is besides those flocking in from Romania and Bulgaria.
According to official figures the number of Spanish, Portuguese and Greeks entering the UK to escape the financial crisis in their own countries has risen by 50% this year alone.
Despite Cameron’s pledge to reduce net migration; that is those arriving minus those leaving, there is clear evidence that like a runaway freight train without breaks our immigration situation is out of control.
With the EU Right of Free Movement Britain is exposed and Government officials are powerless to prevent anyone coming to Britain seeking work from other member EU states.
It is now crystal clear that not only is Britain liable to continuously bail out countries that refuse to implement austerity measures to control spending we are also liable for providing housing, welfare and work for the hordes of migrants that continuously invade Britain.
The latest report details that net migration rose last year from 153,000 to 176,000. Whilst this does remain considerably below the levels seen in the early 2000’s, under the Blair Government, at which migration hit an all time high of 225,000, the sudden rise is seen as a clear indication of things to come when the Right of Free Movement comes fully into effect January 2014.
Figures also show a slight downturn in migrants from Africa, India and Pakistan but as unemployment continue to rise in countries such as Greece, now currently at over 62%, it is likely Britain will have to brace itself and find more room as people attempt to escape the dire economic situation.
The number of unemployed in Spain also continues to rise; now standing at just over 54% whilst Italy’s unemployment rates have reached over 40%.
With Britain’s economy finally showing signs of recovery Britain will obviously be seen as the land of opportunity which will no doubt have a greater impact on migration figures and unless drastic action is taken Britain could quickly become overrun with foreign nationals; all seeking work or living off the backs of the taxpayer.
