MPs are bottling war against immigration
STRAIGHT TALKING FROM UKIP’S DEPUTY LEADER
I THINK we can all agree that there is a general feeling immigration is out of control in this country.
It seems as if the politicians at Westminster have lost the nerve or the willpower to do something about it.
People like Cameron, Clegg, Miliband and most of the Establishment are not affected by uncontrolled immigration.
The people who ARE affected tend to be those in inner-cities. These people have had their communities turned upside down without ever being asked whether it is what they wanted.
It is the young people who can’t find work – the bricklayers who have been laid off or the plumbers earning only half a wage because they can’t work for the same rates as those from Eastern Europe.
Over the past couple of weeks a number of shocking reports have shown just how uncontrolled immigration has become in Britain.
The Office of National Statistics (ONS) last week stated that the amount of immigration from the European Union, which includes Poland, Slovakia and Czech Republic, has been underestimated by 500,000.
Think about it – that is half a million people. It is a city the size of Liverpool.
How on Earth can you miss a city the size of Liverpool?
This means that overall immigration into Britain during the early years of the 21st century has been around 4million – or a country the size of Ireland.
We have never before encountered such numbers of people coming to our shores.
This has undoubtedly caused chaos, as another report by the Home Affairs Select Committee proves.
It has come to light over the weekend that our chaotic border controls have created a backlog of 500,000 that will – at the current rate – take 37 years to clear.
To put that in perspective, it is like filling Wembley Stadium six times over with people who are living here indefinitely.
I must stress, it’s not the fault of the would-be immigrants – it’s the fault of our politicians who couldn’t organise a piss-up in a brewery.
It’s just not good enough. A Home Office report a few weeks ago confirmed what UKIP has being saying for years: that uncontrolled mass immigration is having a detrimental effect on our communities.
The report confirms that half of Britons are now living under the strain of mass immigration, which is impacting on health services, schools, transport and housing.
We need to regain control of our own borders. We gave away the ability to control European immigration to the EU in 2004 – we must take it back.
We should also be a bit more like the Aussies who have a points system which allows those with the skills needed to come and work on a visa.
Such moves would require the backbone to face down the right-on, pro-mass immigration, politically correct lobby who scream ‘racist’ at anyone who tries to change things.
I don’t think the politicians at Westminster have the bottle for the fight.
