    Default The cost of immigration.

    I thought we were told immigration was a benefit.

    Today's report - based on figures from the official Labour Force Survey...

    17bn, the true cost of immigration to the UK every year: Figure calculated as gap between amount migrants pay in taxes and consume in public services

    The campaign group Migrationwatch compared the amount paid in income tax, national insurance, VAT and other taxes by migrants with the cost of providing them with health, education, policing, roads and other services.

    The research found the gap between the contributions made by migrants from the EEA – which is the EU, plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway – and the amount consumed by its citizens was 1.2billion last year, or over 3million a day.

    For migrants from outside the EEA, the bill was 15.6billion. Experts explain the gap by the fact that the non-EEA migrants will include people who arrived here as asylum seekers, who are less likely to go on to get well-paid jobs.

    Lord Green of Deddington, the chairman of Migration Watch, said: 'This report shows that EU migration, taken as a whole, is not making the positive fiscal contribution that has so often been claimed.


    I think those figures are probably correct, even if they are in the Daily Wail.
    I do not agree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

    You mind your pees and queues.
    The European Union is Nazism under a new banner.
    Perrin is right about Cameron, on everything else he is wrong.

    Except it's NOT "today's report". It was a bit of nonsense from 2016, before the referendum, to stir people up to vote Brexit.

    The key thing in here was this paragraph:

    "For migrants from outside the EEA, the bill was 15.6billion. Experts explain the gap by the fact that the non-EEA migrants will include people who arrived here as asylum seekers, who are less likely to go on to get well-paid jobs."

    As we've always had control over non-EU migration, the story had fuck-all to do with the EU, despite the headlines. It was just misleading propaganda.

    Especially if it is in the Daily Mail and involves a controversal issue such as immigration. So I looked for another newslink:

    Nevertheless any member of BC forums who believes something that Fork Me disagrees with, will be classed as an 'idiot'.
