MIGRANT workers could be barred from entering Britain if they have criminal records, are in poor health or do not have a job arranged. Tory MP Stewart Jackson is tabling a bill tomorrow to challenge an EU directive that gives Europeans the right to live here regardless of backgrounds or ability.Whilst I'm not too sure about wanting middle east skilled workers as some islamics bring far more trouble than they are worth, I have no real objection to allowing people to settle here if they have a skill set we desperately need, though only as a short term measure until we train up enough of our own, assuming that's cost effective. What we clearly don't need are sick people, unskilled people (we have enough of our own thanks) and we don't need criminals either (again we have enough of our own) Unfortunately the EU decided we shouldn't be able to control our own borders and anyone from the EU was welcome to come here and dip into our benefits system, even people straight off the ferry in Greece were simply given a passport on condition they didn't stay there.
Under the Peterborough MP’s bill, migrants would also be prevented from claiming benefits for 18 months after arriving in the UK.
Mr Jackson said: “At the moment we have a crazy system where we are turning away highly qualified people from the Middle East but have to let in anyone from Europe regardless. It is right that the British Parliament dictates which foreign people live and work in the UK.
“We want hard-working, highly skilled people and, above all, we want to take back control of our borders.”
The 2004 directive led to an influx of migrants, putting strain on health services and schools and pricing Britons out of jobs.
That is one of the real reasons we need to get out of the EU, we need to be in control of our own destiny once more. We then need to be removing those who should not be here by means of removing all benefits too them.
Multiculturalism and mass immigration failed and have been shown to be of no benefit to those who live here, it's time and passed time it was ended.
