Workers from eastern Europe
November 11, 2004
The Government have announced that 91,000 Eastern Europeans have registered since May, nearly half of them new arrivals. This is a very large number. At an annual rate it is 7 times the governments maximum prediction of 13,000.
The Government have shown a complete lack of foresight. In recent years, they have quadrupled work permits from the rest of the world to 175,000 a year. They must now make a sharp cut in work permits to accommodate these East Europeans who since May have had an automatic right to come here to work.
Britain simply cannot accept massive levels of immigration from all corners of the world.
