pi3141 Posted June 30, 2022 Share Posted June 30, 2022 There's a huge new migrant issue unfolding. So why isn't there any real debate about THIS one? By STEPHEN GLOVER FOR THE DAILY MAIL PUBLISHED: 01:13, 30 June 2022 Some extraordinary figures about population growth were published on Tuesday by the Office for National Statistics, though they attracted very little comment from the BBC or much of the mainstream media. snip Should we be surprised by the dire shortage of houses when, according to the excellent MigrationWatch whose forensic analysis is unparalleled, at least half the demand for new homes is accounted for by immigration? snip What strikes me as odd is that there has been almost no public discussion about apparently soaring levels of legal immigration, given that before the EU referendum in 2016 there was so much agonising over the issue.

The 'Buy to Let' Landlords are making a fortune out of this at the expense of normal families ability to afford housing. I've been saying for years we are due a crash but it just isn't happening - yet. Possibly they are waiting for us all to be over-leveraged and holding unsustainable debts before they crash the system again. I don't know, there should have been a House price crash years ago to level it up but the BofE and Govt frigged the system to prevent it - I think they made it worse. Now I wonder if it was planned to get us all into huge debt so we become debt slaves after the next crash or rather bankrupt Serfs. I guess we shall see. I do think they have used immigration as a weapon against us and I was appalled to See the Right Dishonourable Snake - Tony Blair import cheap foreign labour to undermine our workers when he was in power. (Foreign Nurses) At which point I stopped voting Labour, they sold out the common folk who put them in power. I'll never vote Labour again after Blair and Brown f*cked the country up. On top of that they went out of their way to increase immigration as much as they could Final salary pensions? Not anymore after G Brown messed up the Pension sector with his meddling - Booming stock markets in the 1990s led to even fatter pension fund surpluses and this proved an irresistible target for the Blairite government that came to power in 1997. The chancellor, Gordon Brown, abolished substantial tax relief on dividends that pension funds received on their investments. The financial effect of this tax snatch was colossal. It was estimated that the loss of this tax relief had extracted, in total, over £118 billion of income by 2014.

They've been making us poorer in many ways and using cheap foreign workers to undermine UK workers, all started by Blair. This influx of immigrants has fuelled a Buy to Let boom which has gone on to push up House prices beyond normal affordability. Its affecting our economy in a bad way. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
