Thousands of young people could be blocked from claiming tax credits and housing benefit so the Tories don’t have to pay them to EU immigrants. The Government wants to put an end to people coming to the United Kingdom claiming welfare until they’ve lived in the country for four years.
However, EU regulations stop governments from discriminating against immigrants, so ministers are considering expanding the restrictions to British workers between 18 and 22.
It’s thought as many as 50,000 British workers will be affected, many of them young parents.
Labour forewarned the majority of people would find the restrictions unacceptable.
Shadow work and pensions minister Stephen Timms stated the Government should think about adopting the Opposition’s plan to limit access to benefits for new immigrants for two years rather than four years.
He said this would have an effect on fewer people if a lack of treaty alters throughout the renegotiation of the United Kingdom’s EU membership meant the restrictions also had to apply to Britons.
Without a treaty change, which British officials have formerly established may not be in place by the time of the in/out referendum, which they have pledged will be by the end of 2017. The Government has had to think about idea’s which would increase the embargo to Britons to stop direct discrimination.
The residency test plan would apply from the age of 18, and will not take into consideration if somebody has lived in the United Kingdom all their life.
It sounds like the discussions are not going well, and ministers are stirring from their sleep, and realising that they won’t be able to bring about the renegotiation vowed they would do.
The view has been that there is a good case for limiting benefits to new immigrants from somewhere else in the European Union. The policy statement insisted on a two year limitation, but the government has been proposing a four year constraint.
The larger part of people would take the view that it would not be reasonable for ordinary UK residents to be badly hit because the Government’s renegotiation attempts have not attained a favourable outcome.
Nevertheless, the outcome of such will clearly have such an unacceptable outcome for the people of the United Kingdom. We already have a social division that has dominated over our society, however, by clamping down on migrant benefits, it will also have an effect on most of the UK’s claimants, the government will then have full autonomy for everyone.
Our society has no independence, and it’s really sad that this is the way it has to be, or does it?
The problem is everyone appears to be perplexed by everything that’s going on, however, if there’s uncertainty in a person’s mind about what’s going on with the government, then clearly something is wrong, however, the response should be, what are we going to do about it?
It’s not about migrants being here, or the fact that our society is prejudice against them because they’re from another country, or a contrasting colour, or religion, it’s simply because we don’t have the headroom for them in the United Kingdom.
David Cameron is right, we shouldn’t take anymore refugees from war torn Middle East, we just don’t have the room, and it’s not because we’re uncaring racists.
It’s dreadful that this kind of thing is occurring, however, there is only so much that we can do, and as stated by our government we don’t have enough finances to keep our heads above water.
The government keeps bleating on about how much debt we’re in, and that the taxpayer has to put his hand in his pocket to lend a helping hand with the deficit, does that mean by bringing migrants to our country we have to put our hands in our pockets even more to help them as well?
We’re not accountable for everyone else, we’re a really small country that has hardly enough to sustain itself, let alone enough headroom to put these people, and there are numerous other larger nations that could take them in, but in all probability wouldn’t because they’re too occupied taking care of their own populace.
There’s nothing that can be achieved by taking more and more displaced people, and it’s tragic what’s happening, however, if we join the European wide settlement programme for refugees, then the United Kingdom would become involved in a larger scale scheme, acting as an attraction for other migrants, and it would be impossible to differentiate economic migrants from refugees.
