397,000 reasons to leave

I'm not opposed to immigration (on my terms) nor am I opposed to the free movement of labour, what I am opposed to is the economic migration of immigrants to gain access to the UK's benefits system which under EU law we have to provide to EU citizens in exactly the same manner that we provide our own unemployed.
THE growing popularity of Britain as a haven for economic migrants has been exposed in figures showing the lives of almost 400,000 foreign-born residents are funded by the taxpayer.
New Home Office statistics reveal that 397,000 non-UK nationals received handouts in February 2013 – a rise of nearly 110,000 from 288,720 in the five years since 2008.
But the true number could be even greater as the details are not yet available for the past 12 months.
Ukip spokesman Tim Aker said: “This shows the Government has virtually no control over our borders.
“It shows how broken our migration system is – and the longer this is allowed to go on the more chaotic the situation will get.
“We need to be outside the EU in order to have full control over our borders so we know who is in the UK and who is deserving of benefits.”
It was revealed that net UK migration rose to 212,000 in the year to September 2013, pushing it further away from Prime Minister David Cameron’s target of below 100,000 by 2015.
The government aided and abetted by the previous government  has no control whatsoever over immigration, just look at their pathetic attempts to remove illegal immigrant criminals. The floodgates were opened under Labour in an attempt to rub the 'rights' nose in multiculturalism the socialist wet dream that has proven to be a nightmare as taxpayers are becoming increasingly angry about paying for those who come here and do not work, indeed have no intentions of working. Every day it seems some bloody twat of a politician comes on the MSM declaring something has to be done about immigration knowing fine bloody well that owing to our EU membership there's absolutely sod all they can do without it. They talk the talk as opinion polls tell them it's a voter concern, but they cannot walk the walk as the leadership of their party are EUphiles to the bloody core.
Yes I know Ukip are not everyone's cup of tea and they do have a hell of a lot of oddballs who appear at times not to know how the EU actually works... or indeed real life.
But if not Ukip, then who?
There is no chance the Tories, Labour or especially the Lib Dems will ever allow us to leave the EU.
Vote for them and you vote to perpetuate the nightmare they've created for us...

I totally agree with your post. And it is good that you highlight the fact that politicians can no longer do anything regarding EU derived immigration. However, they can still do something about non-EU immigration which, by-enlarge, is not as good for the UK.

If we had a points based system for non-EU immigrants, I think the UK would be a better place in this regard. We could attract the best and the brightest and filter out most of the dross. But the political class in this country simply do not want to lead. They are much happier to be lead and just appear in from of the camera and maintain the illusion that we are still a Sovereign country.

I am not a UKIP member, and all political parties have their 'nutters' etc. You only have to look at say the Lib Dems recently to know see this. But is UKIP are to really hit home and do the mainstream parties some serious damage, they need to get their act together and fast. As with every passing day, the scum floating at the top are giving away more and more powers, and we are being dragged further in.

Can't wait for the Clegg Farage debates. Clegg is so bloody desperate to hang on by the fingernails that he'll grasp any straw. Farage will make mincemeat out of him on this issue.

I'm still betting that the Limp Dumps will get wiped out in the Euro elections and that Clegg will be shafted and replaced before the 2015 election. Good riddance.
