UK: 3,000 jobless European migrants arrive each year to claim benefits

Sounds like an excellent policy.



New figures show extent of benefits tourism by unemployed European migrants as Iain Duncan Smith tightens the rules to stamp out abuse

Thousands of European migrants are living off benefits after moving to Britain without a job, costing taxpayers £10 million a year in subsidised rent, new figures disclose.

An estimated 3,000 unemployed immigrants arrive from Europe each year to claim Housing Benefit of about £100 a week, government analysis suggests.

More than half continue to claim state support for housing costs for at least six months, while almost one-third have been receiving the hand-out for more than a year without working.

The figures from the Department for Work and Pensions represent the first time the government has published an official estimate of the scale of so-called European “benefit tourism”.

In this case, the analysis focuses on one part of the welfare system, housing benefit, in an attempt to show how many European immigrants claim taxpayer-funded help without paying tax or National Insurance themselves.

Not if you're a hardworking Briton whose taxes are paying for these foreigners' benefits. There are even cases of Poles claiming child benefit in Britain for their children who are still living over in Poland.

It's time to kick them all out, stop immigration completely, and get out of the EU.

Not good news for the Europhiles.

The Conservatives could be pushed into third place at the European elections after the party’s poll ratings plunged in the wake of the Maria Miller expenses scandal.

A poll has put the Tories on 23 per cent, behind Labour (31 per cent) and Ukip (28 per cent) just days after the Culture Secretary was forced to resign in an expenses row.

The pro-EU Liberal Democrats were on a dismal 9 per cent, according to analysis of recent polling by Professor Curtice of Strathclyde University.

At next month's EUSSR elections, Ukip are the strong favourites to win in the UK as a whole (I will be voting for them in the North West of England EUSSR constituency).

And polls shows that Ukip leader Nigel Farage is the most popular party leader in the UK.

But it's not just the British who are fighting back against the Europhile left. The whole of the EUSSR as a whole is seeing a huge upsurge of anti-EUSSR feeling.

Britian will lead the way by voting to leave the EUSSR in the 2017 referendum and become a free, self-governing nation state once again without meddling EUSSR interference and economic straitjacketing. Once independent of the EUSSR other countries will then follow Britain's lead. The EUSSR will no longer exist 15 years from now.

It's not just Britain

Huge poll boost for UKIP as a fifth of voters say they will back anti-Europe party in wake of Maria Miller and 'Sexminster' scandals


Poll shows Labour lead up to six points as Tories lose ground
Ukip support up to 20 per cent, an all-time high for the party
62 per cent say Cameron showed lack of leadership over Miller
Lib Dem support hits an all-time low on just 7 per cent

Support for Ukip is at an all-time high after a week of sleaze in Westminster which saw Maria Miller quit over expenses and MPs accused of sexually assaulting Parliamentary aides

The Conservatives could be pushed into third place at the European elections after the party’s poll ratings plunged in the wake of the Maria Miller expenses scandal.

A poll has put the Tories on 23 per cent, behind Labour (31 per cent) and Ukip (28 per cent) just days after the Culture Secretary was forced to resign in an expenses row.

The Liberal Democrats were on a dismal 9 per cent, according to analysis of recent polling by Professor Curtice of Strathclyde University.

Levels of support for Ukip are now at a record high as they were the only party to gain popularity in a week of sleaze in Westminster, including allegations of sexual assault against young parliamentary aides.

In a Comres poll for the Sunday Mirror and Independent on Sunday, Labour remained steady on 35 per cent, opening up a six point lead over the Tories, while the Lib Dems reached an all-time low of just 7 per cent.

The survey comes at the end of a bad week for David Cameron, as 62 per cent thought he showed a lack of leadership over his handling of the Maria Miller expenses claims.

The Basingstoke MP stepped down from her role as Culture Secretary on Wednesday after being forced to repay £5,800 in mortgage payments and apologise to the House of Commons.

Mr Farage's performances in the head-to-head clashes with Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg over Britain's future in Europe appear to have paid off, giving him a seven-point bounce in his personal ratings since last month, taking him to 27 per cent.

The Deputy Prime Minister is down one point to 12 per cent, while Prime Minister David Cameron has dropped 4 points to 27 per cent and Labour leader Ed Miliband is down 2 points to 20 per cent.




Maria Miller is pictured leaving Downing Street this week after leaving her post as Culture Secretary, as 62 per cent of voters say Cameron showed a lack of leadership over the issue

Cameron admitted on Wednesday that he had underestimated the 'raw' public anger that still exists over expenses, and this week has seen a petition launched on change.org demanding that MPs stop policing their own expenses claims.

In her petition, first-time voter Uzma Chaudhry says there isn't much 'to vote for' in modern politics, and blames expenses scandals which have 'destroyed young people's faith in politics'.
The petition has attracted almost 100,000 signatories and is one of the most popular on the website.

ON A HIGH: UKIP SURGE STEALS SUPPORT FROM TORIES


Ed Miliband's Labour party now holds a six-point lead over the Tories

How would you vote if there was a general election tomorrow?
  • Labour 35% (0)
  • Conservative 29% (-3)
  • UKIP 20% (+4)
  • Lib Dem 7% (-2)
Do you have a favourable view of these leaders?
  • David Cameron 27% (-4)
  • Nigel Farage 27% (+7)
  • Ed Miliband 20% (-2)
  • Nick Clegg 12% (-1)
David Cameron showed a serious lack of leadership over his handling of Maria Miller's expenses:

Agree 62%
Disagree 15%
Don't know 23%

If you don't want British immigrants to go to Canada then stop advertising for them.

And British immigrants to Canada go there to work. They don't claim child benefit and then send it back to their children in Britain.

There are 600,000 Poles living in Britain. 6,500 is nothing. There are as many Poles living in Britain as there are Britons living in the United States, with its huge population.

3000 others is nothing compared to 6500 UK leeches every year. At least the 6900 Americans that move here can speak English or at least ebonic English.

Canadians telling the British - who invented the lingo - that they can't speak English.

That's hilarious.
