[QUOTE=Hopple;41683175][QUOTE=Free.Help;41682917]Why are so many people aganist immigrants/refugees/asylum seekers in this country?: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...n-Britain.html
They are obviously vital for our economy
This is true, but we need to find a way of supporting our pensioners without having to continually increase the population - to do so is unsustainable.
Swap kebab shop for fish and chip shop, and you'll find those jobs were taken up by natives for ages.
This might sound harsh, but why then are they coming here? Unless they've been given a free plane ticket here, they could have flown/sailed/driven to a closer peacetime neighbour for much cheaper - until Ireland or France have a civil war, there's no reason we should help apart from perhaps helping to overthrow the tyrant.
Compare us to the rest of the EU, since it is the EU that has taken away control of our borders. It makes sense to look at laws which affect us in different ways to the rest of the EU and decide whether or not it's fair.
There shouldn't be any abusers, and there are a significant number, even if not a majority. Plus you've got the legitimate argument of an immigrant doing a job pushing a native onto the dole. Say there's 10 jobs going, and 10 natives unemployed capable of doing them, you'd end up with 10 people in work. But if you throw in 10 immigrants capable of doing the jobs, even if those who didn't find work returned home, you'd have 5 immigrants in work, 5 natives in work, and 5 natives unemployed.
Yes, I mean fats food jobs are taken up by many natives, but most immigrants go into two kinds of work-either lower paid or doctors/lawyers. Every takeaway shop where I live is owned by a past immigrant. So they open buisness' and pay their taxes etc.
But it's a human right to help those living in war torn countries. How can anyone be okay with thousands of people and children dying through wars, persucuation (can't spell lol), government regimes etc.? Would you really be okay with millons of people dying? The UK is far from 'full up' like many say, so it doesn't harm our economy.
And most go to Sweden/Swit./Germany. Not that many come to Britan. And like I said, 98% go to nieghbouring countries in the East, how can we deny such a small number coming here?
Although Britan doesn't do enough, it still better human rights than many Europeon countries, so we shouldn't close our borders like many others do.
There shouldn't be any benefit frauds. Should we take away all benefits to ensure no one cheats, just becuase some do?
Most people don't employ immigrants, I mean of course some do like factories etc. And they abuse their human rights, but other companies, say retail or pub, or whatever, becuase many can't speak English well, don't have English qualifications they don't want them.
It's crazy hard to find any job for a citizen in this country. Can you imagine how hard it is for an immigrant who refuses to work for slave labour? Almost impossible.
