Labour’s embarrassing immigration secrets revealed
Reports kept under wraps by Labour showing that immigrants who came to Britain from Romania and Bulgaria had low education levels and were more likely to claim out-of-work benefits are to be released for the first time by ministers.
ALL THE REST ARE IN THE GENIOUS CLASS- STOP PULLING MY PLONKER- MOST ARE UNEDUCATED THIRD WORLDERS.

The figures are contained in five separate controversial studies commissioned by the last Labour government but never published – amid claims the party wanted to avoid a damaging row about its record before last year’s general election.
Ministers accused Labour of a “disturbing cover up” and promised to publish the reports – which cost the taxpayer a total of £165,000 and have now been seen by The Sunday Telegraph – in full within days.
The documents also contain revelations that immigrants from all countries into Britain are more likely to be out of work than the native population – and are less likely to engage in any form of “civic participation.”
More than one third of London’s population, moreover, has now been born outside the UK.
AND THE REST!!
The release will turn the spotlight once again on the party’s controversial record on immigration. Yvette Cooper, the shadow home secretary, used a weekend interview to admit the party had “got things wrong” on the issue.

David Cameron: Immigration cap will not prevent businesses hiring skills they need

Record numbers given settlement in Labour’s last year

Up until 2008 the Labour government was criticised for effectively operating an “open door” policy which saw a massive rise in the number of visas, work permits and extended residency being granted.
Gordon Brown’s government then introduced a new “points based” system which was designed to make it harder for non-skilled people to come to Britain from outside the European Union.
However, particular controversy surrounded the rules governing immigration from countries which joined the EU during the first decade of this century – which included Bulgaria and Romania (which joined in 2007) and Poland (2004).
Labour ministers repeatedly promised that restrictions would be placed on those coming in from Eastern Europe in order to “manage” numbers and protect jobs for British workers.
However, the secret reports show that 27 per cent of people coming from Bulgaria and Romania had “low education levels” while as of 2009 more than 15 per cent of them were claiming out-of-work benefits.
The documents, commissioned by the Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) reveal that immigrants from the two countries are more likely to claim unemployment-related benefits than either non-immigrants or other migrant groups in Britain.
A report said that despite the implementation of a “cap” on numbers, the migration rate into Britain from Romania and Bulgaria increased significantly after the countries joined the EU in 2007.
Meanwhile, migrants from the two countries were shown to be more likely to have four children or more than people coming to Britain from elsewhere – placing a significant strain on the education system, particularly in London where over half the Bulgarians and Romanians who came settled.
More than three in every 100 migrants from Bulgaria and Romania had five children or more.
One of the five reports, Identifying Social and Economic Push and Pull Factors for Migration to the UK by Bulgarian and Romanian Nationals, showed that while Bulgaria’s and Romania’s population declined between 2004 and 2010, Britain’s increased considerably.
During that period the two countries’ unemployment rate fell, while the UK’s rose.
Another report on overall immigration, The Socio-Economic Integration of Migrants, claimed: “Immigrants in the UK exhibit lower employment rates than natives….Immigrants are on average less likely than natives to engage in any form civic participation.”
A further document, Drivers of International Migration, stated: “The increase in immigration into the UK since the mid 1990s is entirely explained by a rise in the number of foreign-born people migrating to the UK from abroad, rather than by returning UK-born people.”
At the start of the 1980s the key annual “net immigration” figure for the UK was minus 42,000 – meaning tens of thousands more people left Britain every year than came here.
By 1992-95 this figure had gone up to plus 9,200 – while by the period between 2004 and 2007 it had mushroomed to plus 178,000 a year.
Britain’s population was slated to increase by more than four million to 65.6 million between 2008 and 2018, while by 2008 over one third of London’s population (34 per cent) was born outside Britain.
Grant Shapps, the Housing Minister, said: “This is another disturbing cover-up by a Labour Party that failed on immigration and then tried to bury the truth.
“‘This Government is bringing immigration under control to restore public confidence in the system left broken by Labour.”
The Coalition’s policy of putting an overall cap on immigrant numbers from outside the EU is designed to reduce net migration to Britain significantly.
David Cameron said in a speech in April that it should be “in the order of tens of thousands each year, not the hundreds of thousands every year that we have seen over the last decade.”
Damian Green, the Immigration Minister, said: “We have cut down on sham marriages, we have brought in a variety of policies which curb the number of people coming into the country and then overstay.
IGNORED THOSE ENTERING VIA SCOTLAND!!
And we will continue to look at how we can further improve the balance between the people who at value coming into the country and those who do not.”
Labour’s record on immigration sparked bitter debates before last year’s election, exemplified by unguarded “bigoted woman” comments during the campaign by Mr Brown, on an open microphone, about Gillian Duffy, a Rochdale grandmother, when she questioned the former prime minister on it.
In an interview this weekend Ms Cooper admitted: “We did get things wrong on immigration.
“We should have had the transitional controls on migration from Eastern Europe. We should have introduced the points-based system much earlier.”
A SYSTEM AS USEFUL AS A CHOCOLATE FRYING PAN!

10 minutes agoLord Haw Haw was hanged for treason for broadcasting propaganda over the radio from Germany during the Second World War. The architects of the unrestrained approach towards immigration in the Labour government have caused significantly more damage to this country. We don’t have the death penalty in this country. Tony Blair and Gordon Brown should get a minimum of five years in jail. That would be fair.

The majority of the electorate of England made it clear at the general election in 2005 that they wanted the levels of immigration reduced in a significant way. Their voice was ignored. Hundreds of thousands of immigrants flooded into the country against their wishes. It is important to hold those responsible in the Labour government to account through the courts. The people of England deserve a fair and proportionate measure of justice. If we do not do this, it will mean that our notions of democracy and the rule of law will not mean anything.

24 minutes This isn’t really news, just more evidence that our politicians have lied to us about immigration, citing (demonstrably spurious) economic reasons for the huge demographic change that we have undergone.
In reality the purpose of immigration is, in my opinion, to break down national and racial identities and further the globalist agenda. Of course Eastern European labour has also suppressed wages, benefitting big businesses, too. Report Recommend

One of the problems is that we’ve had a sequence of PMs who’ve been too keen to play at ‘statesmen’ on the world stage while conveniently forgetting that our nation’s status has changed. They waltz-around making grand-gestures at our expense. Gestures which don’t affect them but sh*t on the rest of us big time.
The politicians of more sensible nations must be laughing out loud at the pretence.

..Yvette Cooper, the shadow home secretary, used a weekend interview to admit the party had “got things wrong” on the issue.’
Does that make her a bigot?
“Yvette Cooper, the shadow home secretary, used a
weekend interview to admit the party had “got things wrong” on the issue”
If you believe that, you will believe anything. It was Labour’s agenda to bus into the country as many migrants as possible, bribe them with benefits and thereby create future Labour voters when they become British citizens. In Labour’s eyes, the only education these migrants, or anyone needs, is to have enough nous to put a cross against the Labour candidates name.
Blair and Brown should be put in leg-irons and thrown in the tower where traitors belong.
“Yvette Cooper, the shadow home secretary, used a weekend interview to admit the party had “got things wrong” on the issue. ”
Labour deceptive speech for, “We got it exactly how we wanted too. The damage we were after has been done and now we will claim we did not mean to do it.”
And is anyone surprised about any of this? The labour government for the last thirteen years have been the most anti English government in history. Everything had been designed to remove England and the English from any form of nationhood and they look like they have succeeded.
LESSON WAS LOOK AT AMERIKA- WHO DID THAT?
The question now is what is the current government going to do about it? France seems to have no difficulty sending hundreds of Roma back to Romania. I thought that even for EU citizens there was a rule that if no permanent work had been found within three months, these uninvited guests could be sent home. Never mind the wimpy LibDumbs, Cameron, just get on with it!
Damnit, I didn’t know there was a rule like that! Scandalous that it’s not been implemented – and this is supposed to be a ‘Tory’ govt!
*Is* it an EU rule?
Can anybody quote us chapter and verse – assuming it’s not too tedious and full of bollo*k-speak?
Hav’nt noticed the numbers dropping under the current bankster puppet junta.
YOU WOULDN’T, BECAUSE THEY HAVEN’T!
Labour let people in because despite the low level of education they anticipated getting their votes.
This was to ensure that labour got in at subsequent elections.
What they forgot was that whilst they could make a mark many couldn’t read!
How about the immigrants get the same level of benefits they would get back home. Which for the Bulgarians would be approx £84 a month…..
Our lot get rent, bus passes, £200 a month & everything else.
I can guarantee they would leg it back home within weeks – the cost of living over here in comparison with their income from the dole would be unsustainable
WELL WORTH THE TRIP OVER…GET REGISTERED FOR JA….GO HOME LAUGHING.
What a FIRST CLASS idea – that’s one of the best solutions I’ve read – Excellent.
On top of which how about charging the immigrant’s country for ALL the benefits we hand over; and add on separate charges for health, housing, schooling, transport….. they’d soon be leaving the UK.
Ahhh… wait a minute – can’t – the Oiks at the Animal Farm stipulate every migrant must be treated the same as the citizens of the host country – THAT’S the problem.
Solution – Leave the b—–y Animal Farm; get out of this slurry pit created by the Oiks in the city of the Mannikin Piss – vote UKIP.
The solution is simple. Firstly, fix the language we use to label immigrants, as the current terminology was invented by the liberal left:
Asylum Seeker = Refugee
Immigrant = Economic migrant
Many immigrants in Scotland, for instance, are labelled asylum seekers. Yet they are not refugees fleeing war zones or similar catastrophes. Therefore, they are economic migrants.
It is then easier to convince people of the real solution – withdraw any benefits to non-British people. If you don’t have a passport, you get nothing. If you cannot find work, you must go home.
No vote in the uk untill you have lived here for atleast 10 years
what the labour partys immigration policy was is no better than buying votes
The British may be a soft touch, but the English, Welsh and Scots and Irish aren’t!
THE BRITISH- AH- 1947/8 PASSPORT HOLDERS.LABOUR AGAIN…
Labour allowed massive immigration because they thought it would increase the Labour vote! Even then they couldn’t win the election so where would Labour be if they had properly secured our borders?
WHOSE COVERING UP FOR WHOM?
American Jewess Bitch: Europeans must accept Jewish domination and national annihilation or die
The American Zionist Jewess bitch Barbara Lerner Spectre, of the Swedish taxpayer-funded, fake-Greek-named Jew outfit “Paideia“:
“Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we [Jews] are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies [sic] that they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the centre of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode, and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role, and without that transformation, Europe will not survive.”
Official “Paideia” biographical note:
Barbara Lerner Spectre is the Founding Director of Paideia, the European Institute of Jewish Studies in Sweden, an academic institute established in 2001 through a grant of the Swedish Government that serves as a resource and stimulus for the renewal of European Jewish culture. She was formerly on the faculty of the Shalom Hartman Institute of Jerusalem, where she taught Jewish Thought, the Melton Center of the Hebrew University, and Yellin College of Education. Her area of research is Models of Response to the Holocaust in Christian and Jewish Theology. Her publications include: “A Theology of Doubt” (Hebrew) and, together with Noam Zion of the Hartman Institute, the two volume: “A Different Light: The Hanukkah Book of Celebration”. She is the recipient of the 2007 Max Fisher Prize for Jewish Education in the Diaspora, and the ICRF “2008 Women in Action” award.
This foul bitch was born Barbara Lerner, in 1941 or 1942, and married Philip P. Specter in 1962.
“Paideia” was started off with an approximately $5,000,000 grant from Swedish taxpayers, who are 99.99% Non-Jews.
It is connected with and partly funded by the EJF (European Jewish Fund), an outfit that operates from the Zionist Entity in Occupied Palestine, which has “Russian” oligarch Mikhail Friedman, of Alfa, as a governor. He also co-founded the Russian Jewish Congress. He is reported to be the third richest man in Russia. The board-members (or “Activists” as they call themselves) are a real pack of shady characters — besides the fact that they are Jews.
From the EJF website:
“The Fund is…focused on addressing such serious threats to Jewish life in Europe as assimilation, anti-Semitism and racism. Assimilation is without a doubt an existential threat to European Jewry that is becoming ever graver. The threat must be addressed in a serious manner with programs that are aimed at reconnecting people with Jewish life.”

THE WORLD’S WORST NEWSPAPER?
Brecqhou – Home of the Barclay Brothers, who own the UK’s Daily Telegraph.
Commenting on the Israeli attack on the Gaza flotilla, the UK’s Daily Telegraph decides to criticise Turkey (Turkey turns away):
“As the man responsible for Turkish security, Mr Erdogan knows that the government in Jerusalem has to vet goods brought into the Strip.
“A secular, non-Arab country, Turkey is in a unique position to mediate between Israel and the Palestinians.
“Its prime minister appears instead to have chosen a more biased role designed to appeal to his domestic Islamic constituency.”
The UK’s Daily Telegraph is the most pro-Israel of newspapers.
The Daily Telegraph, whose tax-exiled owners are David and Frederick Barclay, works for the bad guys.
It was the Daily Telegraph that, through the expenses scandal, helped a ‘loathed’ Jew, John Bercow, to become speaker of the House of Commons. (‘Loathed’ Jew must be sacked as speaker of UK’s discredited House of Commons.)
Certain Telegraph staff are reported to have links to the spooks.
Reportedly, Sir Colin Coote, a former Editor of the Daily Telegraph and a former officer in MI6, was responsible for introducing Jack Profumo’s friend Stephen Ward to Soviet spy Eugene Ivanov ‘at the behest of his old service’, (PROFUMO, John – Spy School Bios.)
The result of the Profumo affair was that Israel’s friend Harold Wilson became prime minister.
Allegedly, Dominic Lawson, who once edited the Sunday Telegraph, has links to MI6 and Princess Diana. (SPOOKY JOURNALISTS)
Con Coughlin is a journalist with close links to the security services.
“It was Coughlin who, with the help of unnamed intelligence sources, discovered that Saddam Hussein could launch weapons of mass destruction in 45 minutes.
“And it was Coughlin who revealed the link between the 9/11 hijacker, Mohammed Atta, and Iraqi intelligence.
“Both claims have, of course, been exposed as utter nonsense.” – (UK Indymedia – Pentagon Propaganda Occupies the Guardian’s Front Page:)
Now Con Coughlin is trying to spread stories about Iran.
The Telegraph newspaper had a story entitled ‘Iran has resumed A-bomb project, says West’ – By Con Coughlin, 07/07/2008
David Leigh wrote about ‘Britain’s security services and journalists: the secret story’ in the British Journalism ReviewVol. 11, No. 2, 2000, pages 21-26. (http://www.bjr.org.uk/data/2000/no2_leigh.htm)
According to Leigh:
“British journalists – and British journals – are being manipulated by the secret intelligence agencies.”
Leigh gave us an example from 1995 when the Sunday Telegraph published a story about the son of Col Gadafy of Libya and his alleged connection to a currency counterfeiting plan.
According to Leigh: “The story was written by Con Coughlin, the paper’s then chief foreign correspondent, and it was falsely attributed to a ‘British banking official’.
In fact, it had been given to him by officers of MI6, who, it transpired, had been supplying Coughlin with material for years.”
