/ I have concerns over the British immigration policy so I wrote to my MP.
Why have you not posted your alleged letter on this forum?,
If you are not coming from the "bloody foreigners angle", who should be aloud in to "your country" and who should decide on what criteria?
what do you do with the people who are already there and do not fit into your management of these people?
I didn't post the letter on here as not everyone is going to want to read it, however, I offered to send it via PM to anyone who wanted to read it. About half or dozen or so people asked to see it.
Would you like to read it ?
The letter itself was posted last Monday, so it should have been read by now.
The criteria for foreigners to have the right to live and work here should be based on the skills they have and the skills we need. They should be also able to support themselves financially, have proof of an offer of employment, be able to speak English to a reasonable level and have a place to stay. I understand that anyone who goes to Poland to work should have enough cash on them to support themselves to the tune of approx £50 a day. Something like that makes perfect sense.
They shouldn't be entitled to register for council housing and if they want treatment on the NHS or give birth to a child here, they should pay for it. If they bring their kids with them and want them to go to school, they should pay for private education. Once they've paid into the system for five years and want to make the UK their home, then that's different and then they can start using things like the NHS that the rest of us have been paying into for years and years.
This should apply to ANYONE looking to move here from ANYWHERE. If I moved to another country, I would expect a similar process.
I was meaning more that the UK Government have handed out all the freedom (of movement), but don't want to take responsibility for any negative impact that it has.
The last thing I want to see is "No Polish Need Apply" signs or anything like that. Nor to I want to hear on the news how things become violent as a result of resentment between communities.
Any managing of migration has to be a control on the freedom of movement. Look at an atlas and see what a tiny place the UK is. It's just not going to work to have so many people coming here.
Yes Europe has changed, but the majority of British people do not see themselves as European however much the Government wished we do.
The British Government has put its fingers in its ears and ignored the problem hoping it would go away.
