Another 650,000 come to settle in the UK

So in the last 12 months another 650,000 migrants, which is the population of Glasgow, arrive in the UK looking for the good life.

No doubt they will be signing up for a doctor, expect NHS hospital care when needed. A place for their children in the local school and a roof over their head thus increasing the housing shortage. Oh and as they have come here to work they they will be competing with the locals for work and will be prepared to under cut existing wage levels.

OK, so we need some migration but another 650,000 in just 12 months is taking the p!ss

Well the lefties and the media will tell you they are all doctors, nurses and scientists. Further more they are all fit and healthy so no need to use NHS. They will immediately start paying taxes and are required to look after our ageing population.

Not one of them will claim any benefits and will not add to the housing crisis or traffic and transport congestion.

We are lucky to have these people here and they are all escaping war torn countries even if coming from Greece.

Net migration was 335,000. That means 315,000 decided it was time to get the hell out.

I'm sure the quality of those arriving and departing balanced out!

I know I'll be long gone so it won't impact on me, but the frightening thing is that the EU itself reckons that the UK's population is going to increase more than any other EU country over the next 50 years - by almost 20 million and by which time the UK will be the most populous country in the EU, while Germany's population is forecast to decrease by around 15 million.

Those who label UK citizens who want a halt to immigration as racist should take note - and as I said, these are the EU's own forecasts, not UKIP style propaganda - and perhaps explain how and where the UK is going to create a new city the size of Liverpool every three years or so.

Welll hopefully we will restore order once free.

Population will increase and so willl immigration. Reducing the rate of the increase is best we can hope for.

Well done to the 17.4m. We should be proud.

Not going to make this another Brexit thread so one and only post here

Firstly read the thing in full! The vast majority of that was pre referendum data When the pound sterling was at 1.45 against the Euro meaning EU immigrants were getting a lot of Euros with the money they were making here.

Half of those were NON EU immigrants and Illegals where we have around 1 million give or take some to keep DC from the other thread happy

To my friend Meatballs We didn't do a very good job with the EX EU and illegals before Brexit so why will Brexit make things better?

Over and out

Actually the proper lefties will tell that borders are a fascist construct and that we are all one people who should be free to move everywhere whenever we want without retrictions - they're the really dangerous ones

I actually have some sympathy with that view, but only if there are strict limits on what the state provides. Unfortunately not only is our public sector a complete free for all, but mass immigration is being used as a tool by the metropolitan left to destroy British working class culture

Would that be the Angle immigrants? Or the Saxon immigrants?

They've been gradually chipping away at our roots for over a thousand years. Do they assimilate into our culture?

If you think these figures are high take a look at the ONS predictions for numbers coming by 2024, over 4 million with more than half of those coming from the EU.

Most of us are immigrants or of immigrant stock.

In the UK our Head of State is German. Most of her antecedants, going back half a dozen generations, are German. Most of the Scottish contingent of the Royal clutch are actually French. William the Bastard was originally Norwegian. And so it goes on.

Africans and Asians, mostly.
You know, the ones that according to the huggy fluffies agit-prop come from war-torn countries (which most of the time they aren't) and start demanding money, housing and same rights like us as soon as they set foot ashore.

Not in the least.
When we go to their countries they expect us to respect their laws and traditions, when they come to our countries they could care less about returning the favour.
Any further question?

Very intelligent reply, I'm impressed!
Wasn't this you, in the other thread:
Denying reality doesn't actually alter reality, GF. No amount of lipstick on a pig can alter the fact that the pig is a pig.
Who's in denial now?
By the way, did the Native Americans welcome the Europeans with open arms? I forgot.

Stop it! She is not and never has been German. Her place of birth is London and here mum & dad were also born in the UK.Germany, as a nation, is only 55 years older than her. (Just thought I would mention it!)

The area of most concern is that hardly a single one of these immigrants has the intestinal fortitude to stand up and fight the troublemakers in their country. They prefer to flee and abandon their country, as they have no will to fight.

If another war looms on the horizon for the U.K., I wonder where these imigrants will then flee to? I seriously doubt they have any desire to fight for Britain, as they had no stomach to fight for their own country.

If ever civil war, started by terrorists, commenced in Australia - or Australia was invaded - I can tell you this much. I wouldn't be fleeing anywhere, and I'd become 100% involved as a fight-to-the-death guerrilla fighter, to preserve our countrys democracy, peace, and stability, as much as my aging body would enable me.

I was listening to an item on this subject at lunchtime. Some farmers, and particularly those in horticulture who need seasonal fruit and veg pickers are getting seriously worried about next year, as the agencies who recruit for them are saying that there is a big drop in the numbers who want to come next year. This is entirely due to the drop in the pound. These people are now more likely to be looking for work in Germany and Scandinavia next year for purely financial reasons, as the s they earn here are going to translate to fewer euros to send home.

No point in thinking these jobs are going to be taken up by indigenous Brits. I had a Lithuanian friend who was working for a local farming contractor here in West Cornwall. I asked him how many locals his boss employed. His reply "just the boss and his son - all the rest Lithuanians and Poles. The boss won't employ locals - they don't work hard enough" Having seen a programme about this where locals in Boston moaned about Polish workers, but when offered jobs as fruit pickers didn't last two days, I can see why these farmers are worried about next year.

Onetrack - the vast majority of the immigrants being discussed do not come from areas of conflict in the Middle East. Top of the list is Rumania, followed by China. The vast majority of Chinese immigrants arent here to open yet another takeaway, but are students who pay top whack in fees to get a valued British degree, which they can use to their advantage when they go back home.

Basil, the problem with your solution (pick fruit or no dole) - is that no orchard farmer in their right mind would employ these people.
They are not unemployed, they are unemployable.

Discussed this many times with farmer associates and farmer clients - and the general opinion was - "If they turned up to work here, you'd pay the useless bastards to piss off, before they stole something, or broke some item of equipment so they could avoid work!"
