When Cameron went to the eec to "renegotiate" certain conditions, I was prepared to vote in if he came back with a result. Basically the others just laughed in his face. The prime minister of Poland has already said that the UK pay their welfare bill. It is all just too one sided. I see the net amount of money that goes the other way, would go a long way to pay for decent roads here, more money for the NHS, schools etc.
800, 000 immigrants , last year, mean at an average of 5 to a house, another
160, 000 houses needed.... and again next year, and the year after. Uncontrolled immigration means more pressure on schools, the health service, and housing.
from The Telegraph...
The number of immigrants who came to work in Britain last year reached a record high of more than 800,000 as the number of Romanians coming here tripled in just 12 months.
Previously-unpublished data obtained by The Telegraph shows the massive overall increase was powered by huge rises in arrivals from the rest of the European Union.
More than 152,000 Romanians registered for National Insurance (NI) numbers in 2014/15 - a key indicator of immigration levels - compared with just 47,000 in 2013.
The total for all nationalities was up by more than a third year-on-year to 824,000, including 629,000 from the EU, 100,000 from Asia and 79,000 from the rest of the world.
European new arrivals are being driven by job-hunters coming here to work, attracted by the stronger economic recovery here and high unemployment in their home countries.
