Immigration – Cameron’s ridiculous response.

30 Nov

So, at last David Cameron announces the Government’s plans to deal with immigration. What do we get? We get a headline grabbing piece of misdirection that looks good but is practically useless – a weak and pusillanimous response to the problem that gets nowhere near the real issues and fears of the man in the street.

He plans to persuade the EU, by Treaty change, no less, that EU immigrants should not be eligible for State handouts within 4 years of their arrival. There are 260,000 new people coming into the country every year and this is the best he can come up with.

It is ridiculous at so many levels.

Firstly it will take 10 years to negotiate. Inevitably it will be watered down to something like 1 year. In the meantime we have to create the equivalent of a new large town every year.

Secondly, most EU immigrants do not come here for State handouts. They come here to find work and for the most part, they succeed. So the financial savings are small and will make little impact on EU immigration. And of course, EU immigration is not controllable. The treaties already signed decide that.

Thirdly, when the public say that they want immigration numbers to drop, they are not really talking about the EU at all. They are talking about the flood of asylum seekers who are given money, housing and all sorts of other help in priority over the indigenous population.

They are scared to talk about it but they are thinking of the vast number of people coming in from the Indian sub-continent, particularly the Muslim community.

These people have cultural values completely at odds with British values and they have no inclination to change. They talk peace but by their fruits we know them. They screech,”Discrimination” at every opportunity. They demand special rights and treatments. They are subject to a continuous stream of vitriol about Western values from their teachers. And they are a breeding ground for terrorists who bomb our streets and behead people on the streets of London. And their long term ambition is for the United Kingdom to be subject to the primitive and scary Sharia Law.

Come on David, get a grip on the real issues.
