‘Migrant law has affected UK life’

People across the UK have noticed how extensive immigration over the past decade has affected the ability of public service organisations to keep us safe, healthy and educated.

Competition for jobs has kept wages down while the cost of living has consistently increased.

Labour ministers decided that they would have no transition controls on immigration from Eastern European states which joined the EU in 2004 because they didn’t think that many people would make the journey. They were proved wrong on a massive scale.

When it was established that bogus colleges and ‘universities’ were being used to circumvent immigration law to allow thousands of non-skilled migrants to come to this country from outside the EU, it was Labour politicians who said that to confront this breaking of UK law would amount to ‘racism’.

That word has often been a slur on anyone who dares to suggest that the numbers of immigrants coming to these shores needs to be controlled.

You may wonder if they have really changed their mind on this thorny problem? The answer comes in the form of comments made recently by Diane Abbott, MP for the diverse London constituency of Hackney.

Labour, she says, should be making the case for more immigration. More unskilled workers from around the world should be invited to come to the UK.

She says that she knows Ed Miliband’s heart is ‘in the right place’, but that he is swayed ‘by polling’ showing the vast majority of people in the UK think we have had more than enough immigration for now.

Labour may say they’re remorseful about the damage they have done but they will do it all over again given the chance.
