I’ve got to page 25. The ‘evidence’ appears to have been produced by VIs.

Then, On page 25, they quote research papers, most of which are very dated, especially give the rate of change. Many are ten years old, or older.  For example, there is this from the guardian 

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/oct/11/number-of-romanians-and-bulgarians-in-uk-rises-413000

last year the official figures (so those will be vastly underestimated) were half a million Romanians and Bulgarians in the U.K.  they were only allowed access in 2014. So in less than three years, half a million (official figures remember) has made their way here. 

Dont tell me that those numbers have not had a detrimental impact. Just on infrastructure and services, never mind the downward pressure on wages. 

So, half way in and it is clear that it is a pile of bollox.

All smoke and mirrors. Basically immigrants from the "old" EU countries (Germany, Holland, France etc) generally pay in more tax than they take out in benefits. The newer EU migrants from Eastern Europe take out more in benefits/NHS/schooling etc than they pay in tax and NI.

Old EU is probably balanced/neutral - but most would have arrived before tax credits, so would have been earning.

Mrs spy is probably neutral if you could her popping 2 kids in the UK v. what shes' paid. They were my kids too, so we, as a unit, are one the very few paying net tax whilst kids are at school.

Id guess the average EE on tax credit is costing ~50k/family/year. In cash.

Rather simplistic I know, but,

As far as I'm concerned the only thing that matters is if an immigrant's presence means more money flows into the UK than out of it, otherwise we should use our homegrown first and foremost and develop their skills in the areas we need them. Then, when we are awash with cash, we can decide whether to be more charitable.

This is just smoke & mirrors using averages.

Even if the 'average*' person is fine, that doesn't mean you should ignore those that aren't fine.

[* I don't believe this -- or, at least, the income distribution won't be normal, so you shouldn't be using the arithmetic mean.]

I get the feeling the elites are really going to use Brexit against us in the future. We'll be importing low-IQ populations that by the hundreds of thousands, and whenever it is opposed they will counter it with "but this is what you voted for in 2016" etc.

Maybe that was the plan all along. The claim will be that immigration just is and has to be, and you've cut off the European route, so you cant complain about getting a load of Bangladeshis, or whatever.

Highest rated comment:

'If we require skilled people from overseas after Brexit
I welcome them in.

What we don’t need is an influx of unskilled migrants that
further stretches our resources.

Contributing very little to society, if choosing to work,
often in low paid unskilled jobs.
Propped up by the tax payer. '

Oh dear.

Peopl thinkign for themselves, not listenigng to the highly trained academics whove just produced al oad of BS.

 

Again, simple solution:

EUer, under 30, no dependencies? No problem - 2  or 5 year work permit.

No right to claim any benefits bar JSA and then leave after 6 months unemployed.

EUer over 30, with dependents? No minmium age but must self support. Again no benefits and charge 8k NHS / year plus schooling at cost for each kid.

Same rules applies  - 56 months JSA then out if no job.

Outside of EU? The same - this would allow students to stay 2 years after graduating.

Over 30, outside of EU? Minimum wage of 50k. Same rules of any dependent.

Anyone wanting to recruit some who does not make the salary could offer less - say 30k - but  must offer a guarantor on benefit and the person leaving.

 

 

SO, there you  - 6 simple lines on post Becit migration that 80% of Brits will be happy with.

No mutli-page report with a disclaimer saying 'We dont have the full data, so well make it up.

And, by setting a income, no fucker has to decide which jobs are in demand or not.

 

 

 

Top post spy. I fail to understand, as it’s so simple, why and how the establishment cannot come up with something similar and as simple. 

Perhaps it’s because they don’t want to. It’s the only plausible explanation. 

As a side issue, a mate of mine whilst a student, did her third year of a four year degree working in America and studying at an American university. All fine and dandy on a student visa. 

Then, on graduating, the American firm wanted her back.  The hoops to get a temporary work permit. Anyhow, she did but at the end of it, when the firm wanted her to continue, America say no and that was the end of it. 

See, it’s not that difficult. Perhaps trump could send someone to explain it.

The more they do this, the more people will realise that they are being lied to by the establishment. On the whole then, I’m ok with it. :)

The problem is people like my strident SJW Corbynista niece swallow it hook line and sinker then shout it back at anyone who doesnt immediately toe the party line.

These people cannot be reasoned with and they absolutely will not stop until they have destroyed our country.

Said this in relation to NHS but same for any benefit, simple one line solution. 

Minimum 10 years continuous residency in the UK before you can claim any benefit whatsoever. Children born here will have accumulated enough credit by 16, up until that point any claims needed for their welfare are done so via their parents (assuming they have the 10 year residency requirement).

---- 

As for the report, all I know is life in the UK is considerably worse than it was in the past, not all, but much of it is due to increased pressure on services due to immigration. We are getting less for our tax input (pot holes, longer wait times in NHS, transport services over capacity and so on), even if it were true that they are net in regards to tax in to the system and benefits drawn down on an individual basis that's a very poor measure of how much they cost the UK.
