UK immgration statistics 2005: According to official UK government estimates, approximately 1,500 migrants arrived to live in the UK every day during 2005. The same figures suggest that 185,000 more people immigrated into the UK than emigrated to another country, yielding a net population gain of 500 per day. According to the figures released by the Office for National Statistics, the largest single group of immigrants were 121,000 arrivals from "new commonwealth" nations - principally, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka.Of the 1.42 million total number of immigrants who arrived in the UK since May 2004, 427,000 were people registering to work from the eight former Eastern Bloc countries which joined the EU in 2004, with the vast majority coming from Poland.
By most accounts, the majority of these people come to benefit from the UK's extremely generous helping of benefits including automatic free healthcare, subsidized housing, and unemployment benefits, to name just a few. They suck the nation's social piggy-bank dry, leaving nothing for pensioners who paid into the system all their lives, and necessitating increasingly ridiculous government taxing schemes to rob hard-working people to pay for the immigrating free-loaders. And let's not even talk about the hard-line muslims who want to impose radical islamic culture on Britain and spend their time trying to recruit British-born muslim teenagers to their sick cause... we have to ensure they have all the benefits they need so paid-work doesn't get in the way.
Finally, it seems, Britain has had enough. Today in the newspaper I saw (with much relief) the first evidence of a crackdown.
Well, thank goodness for that. His five-concert tour would really have driven a hole in the enonomy and posed a real danger to the security of our fine nation.
I can now rest easy at night knowing that my country is protected from rich African Americans who perform the unthinkinkable act of national treason: "talking" instead of singing to background music.
