KATE MIDDLETON HAS PROVED HERSELF IN ADVERSITY IMMIGRATION CRACKDOWN NEEDED FOR GOOD OF THE COUNTRY
A NEW report points to the dire state of many NHS hospitals - overcrowded, unable to cope, a danger to anyone admitted at the weekend because senior medical staff aren't there.
Can this be the same NHS whose saintly merits were trumpeted at the Olympic opening ceremony and is advertised as a model for the rest of the world? Anyone who suggests reforms to this sacred institution is immediately shouted down and it would be wrong to make drastic changes without absolute certainty that they would work. One measure, however, would make a significant improvement and that is curbing the flood of immigration into this country.
How can hospitals and schools cope when every year the equivalent of a major city swells the population?
Governments talk big about crackdowns and controls but nothing happens. The flotsam of the world continues to be admitted, with 99 per cent becoming an instant burden on the state. Everyone knows it's insane so for all our sakes, shut that door. THOUSANDS OF POLISH WORKERS FLOCK BACK TO BRITAIN TO FIND JOBS
IMMIGRATION from Poland is soaring again despite the recession, figures revealed last night.
The number of Poles living in Britain rose by 45,000 last year, the first annual increase since the financial crisis began in 2008.
A total of 625,000 immigrants are now living in the UK, according to Poland's Central Statistics Office.
The surge in arrivals last night cast doubt on the Coalition's drive to cut annual net immigration and triggered new calls for ministers to look again at EU freedom-of-movement laws.
Tory MP David Nuttall said: "As long as Britain remains a member of the European Union we won't be able to fully control immigration.
"The Government is supposed to be committed to reducing immigration from the hundreds of thousands to the tens of thousands every year. But if it cannot reduce immigration from other EU countries, overall immigration will keep increasing."
Ukip leader Nigel Farage said: "Polish immigration to Britain ebbs and flows but at all times the movement is basically in one direction. There is nothing we can do about this because of our EU membership." MASS IMMIGRATION HAS BEEN A TOTAL DISASTER FOR THE UK
ED MILIBAND'S claim to be a “One Nation” leader is an exercise in spectacularly cynical deceit. In recent British history no one ever did more to undermine our nationhood than the last Labour government, of which Miliband was a key member.
Through its attachment to the twin ideologies of mass immigration and cultural diversity, the Labour party tore apart the bonds of solidarity that once held our country together.
For too long, the Tories have been insufficiently robust in challenging the disastrous social revolution that Labour inflicted on Britain.
Eager to parade their own progressive credentials, senior Conservatives have tried to avoid talking about immigration, despite opinion polls which show that it is one of the British public’s biggest concerns.
But at last one senior minister has had the guts to make an unequivocal denunciation of Labour’s catastrophic policy.
This week, at the Tory Conference, the Home Secretary Theresa May used clear, unapologetic language to highlight the damage caused by years of uncontrolled immigration, from the breakdown in social cohesion to the strain on the public infrastructure.
It might seem ironic to see May taking up the cause of stronger migration controls, given that she has long been regarded as a keen Tory modernizer rather than a traditionalist.
For many, she is still notorious for her 2002 speech at the Bournemouth Conference where she declared that the Conservatives were seen as “the nasty party,” a label that stuck for much of the decade.
BUT in truth there is nothing remotely extreme or radical in seeking to cut immigration. PM: We need cut in EU migrants
Cameron wants Brussels to rewrite worker rules
BRITAIN will demand a crackdown on the free movement of workers across the EU, David Cameron said yesterday.
The PM wants Brussels to rewrite the rules that allow Europeans to take jobs in Britain.
He spoke out after Home Secretary Theresa May revealed immigration will be part of a Whitehall review of Britain’s relations with Brussels.
Mr Cameron told the BBC: “I believe in the single market, I believe in free movement. But you know two weeks ago, I visited two factories in a week, and I asked the question, ‘How many people do you employ from other EU countries, what’s the balance?’ In one, it was 60 per cent; in the other it was 50 per cent. Now, heaven’s above, we have got so many unemployed people in our country that we want to train and educate and give apprentices to and get back into work.”
Ministers are particularly worried about immigration from Romania and Bulgaria. Limits on the numbers of workers coming here from both countries run out at the end of 2013. But the immigration review will not be finished until the end of 2014.
Tory MP Douglas Carswell welcomed the plans, saying: “If this is a genuine attempt to get more control on immigration then that would be brilliant.”
But backbencher Peter Bone warned: “I would support the plan but I fear it will ultimately fail. The only way we can get back control of our borders is by pulling out of the EU and renegotiating a new relationship.”
Mr Cameron also came under fire for fudging questions about a Europe referendum.
He agreed “fresh consent” was needed but ruled out quitting the EU.
He said: “I don’t think it would be right to leave right now because we would be basically coming out of the single market which our businesses badly need.” Voters want a cut in migrants
Growing calls for curbs on foreigners
INCREASING numbers of voters want a cut in immigrants and less welfare spending, a major survey found.
The report, published today, shows ordinary people’s views are hardening as the country tries to battle out of recession.
Only 28 per cent of Brits want more welfare spending, down from 35 per cent in 2008.
The British Social Attitudes report also found that 75 per cent want to see immigration levels reduced, compared to 63 per cent in 1995.
The survey of more than 3,300 people was carried out by NatCen Social Research.
Its chief executive Penny Young said it showed the Coalition faces “tough challenges”, adding: “Less than halfway through the Parliament there is already concern about cuts and their effect on public services.
“More encouragingly for ministers, there is clear support for welfare and immigration reform — two areas we are seeing emerge as key battlegrounds for the next election.”
Surprisingly, the proportion of people who want total public spending to go UP — even if it means higher taxes — has risen. More than a third (36 per cent) wanted more spending in 2011, compared to 31 per the year before.
About 55 per cent want it to stay at its current level, meaning just nine per cent back cuts. In a major blow for Government health reforms, satisfaction with the NHS has fallen for the first time in a decade, from 70 per cent in 2010 to 58 per cent.
Sir Alp Mehmet, vice-chairman of campaign group MigrationWatch UK, said he was not surprised that support for immigration was falling.
He said: “The speed at which it’s happening is not in anyone’s interests.”
A Government spokeswoman said: “We are making sure borders are secure with a fall of 36,000 in net migration in the year to December 2011.”
She defended the Government’s spending cuts, adding: “There is nothing fair about running huge budget deficits and burdening future generations with our debts.” Border cap rap: Immigration limit ‘damaging economy’
MOVES to limit immigration are damaging Britain’s economy, a Government report warned yesterday.
UK Trade and Investment — which seeks to attract foreign companies to Britain — said the policy was making the agency’s job harder by putting off potential investors.
The Government has pledged to reduce net immigration to “the tens of thousands”, although the latest figures show it is running at around 250,000 per year.
The UKTI report says Government immigration policy is the biggest concern cited by companies thinking about doing business in Britain. It ranks ahead of taxation, red tape and planning rules.
A spokesman said: “The ability to attract high value foreign direct investment is central to the potential for growth in the UK.” But Sir Andrew Green, of the campaign group Migration Watch, claimed UKTI’s concerns were “absurd”.
He said: “Only half of available work permits have been taken up. In any case, mass immigration must be tackled. Employers must train British workers.”
Home Secretary Theresa May is believed to be under pressure from Cabinet colleagues to soften her immigration crackdown and relax the rules for foreign workers looking to take up jobs in the UK.
She is also being urged to exclude foreign students from the immigration cap as it cuts revenues for universities and colleges.
But any U-turns will be opposed by Tory backbenchers, who see a tough anti-immigration stance as a vote-winner.
Migration confusion is costing Britain dear
The debate is frequently anxious or distorted and needs better research
Government defends secrecy over 'high-risk' immigration blacklist
Foreign Office warns of diplomatic retaliation over UK bias against migrants from 'shamed' nations
UK net migration hits record high
Office for National Statistics figures show increase despite government targets to bring net migration down below 100,000 that the net migration figures were encouraging because they showed a fall "from the recent peak in September 2010".
He said new curbs would help bring net migration down to "tens of thousands over the course of this parliament".
Detailed net figures show that, at 336,000 people, emigration from Britain in the 12 months to March 2011 was at its lowest level since 2001.
The ONS said that 174,000 people left Britain to work abroad in the 12 months to March 2011 – the lowest number for five years, and down from the 203,000 in the 12 months to March 2010.
Australia, France, Spain and the US were the most popular destinations for British citizens going to live abroad, while Poland proved the most frequent destination for non-British citizens returning home.
Taking the 12 months to December 2010, immigration stood at 582,000, similar to 2004 levels. But within this total, ONS data confirmed that studying was the most common reason for migration to Britain; students overtook those coming to work.
The rise in overseas student numbers includes an increase of 15,000, or 54%, in those coming to study from China.
The figures for overseas student numbers in 2011 do show a small fall as the government's new curbs have begun to bite. Issued student visas fell from 271,000 in the year ending June 2011, to 255,000 in the year ending September 2011.
Matt Cavanagh, of the Institute of Public Policy Research, said: "The figures remind us that it was a mistake for the Conservatives to choose 'net immigration' for their overall political target.
"The figures confirm that net immigration in 2010 was the highest on record. Not because immigration is rising – as the ONS makes clear, it has been stable since 2004 – but because emigration is falling.
"The government cannot control emigration, just like it cannot control immigration from the EU, so it ends up trying to clamp down even harder on those areas of immigration it can control. But these are the areas most valuable to our economy, like overseas students and skilled workers from outside the EU."
Labour's immigration spokesman, Chris Bryant, said the fall in the number of illegal entrants – those stopped at British ports this summer – shed light on the home secretary's view that her limited pilot scheme, involving relaxed passport controls, had been a success: "Far from improving the number of detections of people with criminal records or not wanted in this country for other reasons, these figures suggest fewer of those people were stopped," he said.
Sir Andrew Green, of Migrationwatch UK, which campaigns for "zero net migration", said: "At over a quarter of a million in 2010, net migration was the highest it has ever been. It was more than five times the level of 1997 when Labour came to power. It is absolutely vital to get this down to less than 40,000 if we are to keep our population below 70 million." General Info Immigration is an issue steeped in prejudice, traditionally too easily exploited by groups on both the right and left.
We should remember those words when we resume our frequently anxious debate about immigration.
A discussion is much needed on the many issues that arise from immigration.
However, that discussion is again and again sabotaged because immigration provides politicians with levers that are at times too carelessly pulled,
Any reasonable response requires that we understand better the benefits and true costs of immigration and that means more credible research
At the very least, too, the government needs to exempt non-EU students from the visa cap and desist from ramping up the rhetoric; does not impress with his assertions that change was underway; The government's attempts to reduce net migration to Britain to "tens of thousands" have suffered a fresh blow; However, that discussion is again and again sabotaged because immigration provides politicians with levers that are at times too carelessly pulled; he result is often highly negative;
