/ What is the british obsession with Polish workers
Where are they getting the money from, when asylum seekers actually receive a pittance? Unless the rules have changed (and I doubt they have!) - they were getting 70% of whatever JSA is equal to nowadays.
Well that is 70% more than I am eligible to recieve and I am British! something wrong there don't you think, that "asylum seekers", and I use that term loosely, comes before a british citizen.
They're also prohibited from working (one reason why many of them end up turning to crime - what choice do you have if you get 40 pounds a week?!) - so just where is this 'embezzled' cash coming from?
The choice that they have is to stay in their own country, instead of fleeing because of persecution, how is this really going to change the circumstances in their country if they choose to quit, and run from the problem. Some of these rings are highly organised, strange how they are not able to establish and carry out these highly organised rings in their own country!.
I have no problem with polish people, they are not asylum seekers, the majority work hard and integrate very well. we are europeans after all.
The problem I have is with asylum seekers and illegal immigrants as they are a drain on resources, you have already said yourself that they are prohibited from working, what exactly do they contribute to the economy? apart from their "sob stories" which may increase the sales of some down market tabloid.
