ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS COSTING THE TAXPAYER NEARLY 4 BILLION A YEAR – The bill for illegal immigrants is now costing the taxpayer close to £4 billion a year and the question of whether this will continue to rise is an unequivocal ‘yes’.
Remember that little idea the Government came up with about putting vans on the streets asking illegal immigrants to go home? Whilst it caused a little controversy, due to some feeling it was bigoted and or racist; the result was that just 11 people ended up leaving.
If you think the cost of nearly £4 billion is high then you’d do well to sit down for this figure only reflects the cost to the taxpayer for health and education.
Yes, our overstretched education system is being further stretched and as for the NHS; well it’s little surprising that’s on its knees waiting for some kind soul to come along and put it out of its misery – if it’s not the vast amount of civil servants abusing the NHS then its foreigners.
Still think the Human Rights Act and our membership in the European Convention of Human Rights is still a good idea?
Consider this… you can’t get into education without revealing personal information and this is the same for receiving health care.
It could be argued that most of the illegal immigrants simply lie on the forms but where are the civil servants checking this information? Who among the 500,000 civil servants in this country are actually doing anything to curb the abuse to the taxpayer?
According to the Treasury illegal immigrants cost the taxpayer approximately £4,250 per annum, per person, in just these services alone and that the Home Office thinks the number of illegal immigrants could top 900,000.
Yes, they only think – but that’s not exactly their strong suit; nor apparently is taking any positive action, for the truth is these figures are ‘conservative’ estimates.
I’ve said this before and I will say it again because this is such an interesting fact and clearly shows just how incompetent this and previous Governments have been.
Go back in time when the British ruled a quarter of the globe – back then Britain had an army of 4,000 civil servants managing the entire operation and with great efficiency.
Now look at the figure above – 500,000. It’s clear that Government has become more incompetent over time and indeed lazier. They simply do not care and why would they? The EU, it could be argued, was merely set up to give failed politicians a job at our expense.
If you want to see just how incompetent civil servants are, how they are treated once they fail to do their jobs and are finally relieved of their position then read the article below – this is the case of Baby P where the head of Children’s services failed to do her job.
The incompetence cost the life of Baby P and our courts then awarded Sharon Shoesmith, the head of Children’s services, with a £700,000 compensation package for unfair dismissal.
Yes, something is clearly wrong with this picture and yet Government fails to address the issue; it almost appears that Government and civil servants are conspiring to ruin Britain once and for all.
Of course I strongly suspect that civil servants, whilst a complete and utter waste of tax money, are often used by Ministers and MPs as escape goats when things really do go wrong.
I for one fully understand that some of these illegal immigrants have fled conflicts in their own countries and are just seeking sanctuary. Unfortunately these conflicts are mostly of their own making and the people simply do not take positive measures to make change in their own countries and we are expected to pick up the bill.
It’s fine to take the humanitarian approach, but who is going to bail out Britain when it finally goes bust; the IMF or the EU?
I’m afraid the EU is already bankrupt; that was made clear at the end of September of this year when they asked EU member states to cough up another £3.5 billion so that it could meet its own legal obligations.
Again there are 500,000 civil servants in Britain, so that’s a surplus of at least 495,000 so why not put them to work in dealing with illegal immigrants; after all they’ll only have to deal with approximately 2 people each – surely such a task can’t be that difficult.
You might think, considering the damage that illegal immigrants are doing to our economy that David Cameron would start to take the issue seriously.
Mr. Cameron appears all too ready to admonish people like Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower, due to leaked information compromising national security and allowing terrorists to infiltrate Britain.
You might think that saving Britain from bankruptcy would be high on the agenda and put some of our intelligence services to work in tracking down illegal immigrants; hanging around schools and hospitals would appear a good place to start.
Unfortunately Mr. Cameron and his Minister’s actually thought a few vans with poster on them would do the trick – I wonder if anyone could be any more deluded or indeed indifferent to the plight of the British taxpayer.
Considering the estimated number being nearly 900,000 illegal immigrants, the question many are asking now and far too late is, ‘how will this figure rise when the Right of Free Movement is imposed?’
Once January 2014 hits in less than 2 months, we could effectively sack every border official for their jobs will become obsolete as Britain will no longer have the right to refuse anyone entry.
If you honestly think things are bad now then think again. The truth is Britain simply cannot afford to continue supporting the rest of the world and it’s time the Government took positive measures to seek out and deport all illegal immigrants – whilst they are at it the scraping of the Human Rights Act and pulling out of the EU would also give Britain a chance to stave off bankruptcy.
