Too little too late

One of the ways many illegal immigrants gained access to this country was by getting an education visa and simply just vanishing into the system once they got here. Lot of scam courses from a lot of scam colleges were allowed to be set up by the previous government and a lot of people got very wealthy because of it..

A CRACKDOWN on abuse of the student visa system should cut overall immigration by more then 200,000 over the next four years, it was revealed by the Government last night.
Officials estimate the new policies being introduced gradually will mean 260,000 fewer student visas are granted between now and 2015, and 100,000 fewer awarded to students’ dependants.
It should lead to a 230,000 reduction in net migration. Today ministers are expected to set out latest details of the timescale for their continuing reform of the system which has become a major route for would-be immigrants to get into the country.
The issue has caused some controversy, with Lib Dem Business Secretary Vince Cable concerned that immigration curbs will hit university quality and revenue.
But the Home Office insists its aim is to tackle abuse and establish controls which command confidence while encouraging the best and brightest young people to come here on genuine courses.
 Yes 260,000 over 4 years sounds good, but it's still only a drop in the ocean as some 586,000 people arrived to live in Britain and 344,000 emigrated just last September and student visa were already 30% up in that time anyway.
The problem is further exacerbated by the fact that anyone who can make it to the EU and pick up an EU passport can come here anyway. and we're stupid enough to pay them benefits when they do.
Now it would be great if the people arriving had skills we could use, except in a majority of cases they aren't, they're here to take up cheap labour jobs that our homegrown people wont do because our benefits system makes it not worth their while doing. So they come here, work, live far too many to a house and send money home, as our minimum wage is a lot more than what they can earn for doing similar stuff back home.
The only way to stop this is to leave the EU, reform the benefits system root and branch and kick out any and all illegals regardless. Once we leave the EU, we'll have control of our borders back, control of our laws and a sovereign parliament that will do the right thing for the country rather than the EU and its odious bureaucracy.
Can't come too soon.
Nor should we ever forget Labours role in this farce.

Re your last para: Bring it on, Bro but don't forget the role lamp posts have to play in all this, will you?
