Er, they don't have the same rights to benefits. In fact a Pole who has worked in the UK for two years and paid NI during that time has less rights to benefits than a Brit who has never worked a day in his life (or one who has never worked a legal day in his life).
Wrong, a friend of mine who has been back here for only 3 months is claiming child allowance (put his claim form in the first week he got back) - been back here for 2 minutes and is back claiming something...As for the Brit who has never worked...well, he's a Brit, let us worry about our own...I hate them as much as the next hard working person.
Would you prefer that those family members came to the UK and so became an expense for the NHS and whatever is left of the British education system? If anything, child benefit payments should be higher for people who keep their children outside the UK!
LOL...Do you know how stupid that sounded??? Why SHOULD we do anything? I actually like the system they have in place in Dubia, 'foreingers' pay NO tax but you pay for health care and schooling is private...let's see how attractive the UK would be then! Look how the Indians are treated in construction and the service industry over there? Getting the picture Harry?
