Common sense immigration

The Barclay Brother Beano has turned its attention to comments about immigration, in relation to the UK’s economic needs, made by the former chief executive of Autonomy, Mike Lynch.

It is one of those pieces where a journalist has given a platform to a statement of the bloody obvious. Well, obvious to intelligent people outside of our pisspoor excuse for a government in Westminster, led by our supreme government in Brussels.

Setting aside the issues Lynch’s comments raise about the state of education and training in this country, the logic in his comments is clear and unarguable, identifying what is good for our economic and competitive prospects.  However, the reality of our condition sees that the government has clamped down on the opportunities to live and work in the UK for exactly the kind of highly skilled migrants Lynch correctly identifies as being beneficial to our economy and society.

Meanwhile, unskilled labour or marginal value floods here from across the European Union.  Poorly educated – often uneducated – family members of British citizens of south Asian origin are brought here under marriage and family criteria, despite lacking English language ability and frequently having no intention of developing any or integrating into our society and culture, adding little or no value to this country due to the limited scope of what they can do.  And economic migrants posing as asylum seekers among the hundreds of thousands who have arrived here, by-passing safe havens en route, seep into the black economy in low skill, low paid work outside of tax and National Insurance, being exploited by unscrupulous gang masters while making full use of public services paid for by the rest of us, allowed to stay here after publicly funded legal support in appeals.

The government’s approach to dealing with migration is irrational and defies reason.  The tough line being taken with exactly the sort of people this country would benefit from welcoming and hosting is what should be taken with those who are currently being soft soaped and coddled, instead of being shown the door.  It is little wonder our competitiveness is declining while the welfare budget continues to expand, impoverishing this country and wasting the contribution made by the productive workers and wealth creators.

The adoption of the European-style social model is unravelling the fabric of this nation, sowing discord and discontent among the less well off who suffer most from the consequences of the state’s wrong headed approach and saddling this country with liabilities that cannot possibly be funded – eroding the services and provisions millions expected to be able to draw upon after working hard and contributing to the system all their lives.

Until a government grasps the nettle on this subject immigration will remain a devisive issue.  The unfounded resentment of those foreigners who do add value to this country will continue to grow, fuelled by behaviour of those who come here to be net recipients rather than producers.

    Your blog is very good at describing how uneducated people come to britain & are taken advantage of in low paid work. But they are not paid for by any of us when it comes to a helping hand. Because taxpayers do not pay for any benifits. They are paid for by Gov’t out of created funding.Very much like a Bank does when it Creates a loan.

    Wrong. The supposedly ‘created funding’ is not free and the debts have to be serviced/repaid and that money is taken from taxation. In the final analysis we pick up the tab.

    Like Robin Macfarlane you seem sold on the ideas of Warren Mosler, which are a theory that has never been tested. But it is worth noting that where fiat money has been abused by wholesale printing of currency to fund government spending, it has resulted in damaging inflation that impoverishes the less well off. His corrupted form of Keynesianism deliberately glosses over the consequences of flooding the money supply in this way.

    I suggest you look back at the history of the welfare state and how it began with pensions to the elderly and note how they were funded. Describing what fiat money is doesn’t account for the consequences of abusing it.

    Government’s running the presses to run off a few zillion more here and there at will is no solution. Witness fairly recent history in Zimbabwe. Manufacturing more money backed by nothing is a road to ruin, and will have consequences for us, our children and for generations.
    There is no such thing as “government money”. Only what it can extract from citizens, or borrow and repay later by further extraction.
    The only solution to the present problem is to bring spending into line with a sensible level of taxation, and a readjustment of expectations as to what activities a government should undertake

    “They are paid for by Gov’t out of created funding”
    You can’t create funding without consequence. The only money that the government has and can ever have is what is taken from us.
    Even quantitative easing is the same, if you print/create new money you devalue what you already have.

    Following Prometheus1938’s comment I have written to that nice Mr Cameron asking for some of the free money the government is, apparently, able to create. Do you think I shall have to wait long?

    Stop worrying…….it’s far, far too late.

    They all do it though – even the Swiss.

    Organize Not Agonize…

    Few random points to consider –

    “The impossibility to substitute the baby boomers with a new generation of debt slaves worked perfectly well for the Marxist movement, which had just the ‘right’ solution for the lack of workers: inundate the country with illegal immigrants […]
    What’s the problem with Latinos or North Africans taking over? Well, most of these people –both in the U.S. and Europe– come from places where they are taught to hate whites and where whites are blamed for the inequality they’ve lived in for generations. They are coming to take what they think is theirs. The minds of the new wave of immigrants are filled with what Karl Marx used to believe:
    There are two classes: The workers, who have no control over anything, and the wealthy, who own it all.”

    Governments are bankrupt and their only capital is their slave populations.

    1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
    2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
    3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
    4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
    5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them; and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

    The will to any system is lack of essential integrity. [Jung]
    The bigger the system the more corruption is inevitable. [Jung]

    Count Richard N. Coudenhove-Kalergi [Jesuit “Black Pope”] wrote’ a book in 1923 calling for a United States of Europe. This book contains the following words: “The future man will be a mongrel. As for a Pan-Europe, I wish to see a Eurasian Negroid mixture with great variation in [dysfunctional] personality types… The Jews shall take the leading positions, since Providence has given Europe a spiritually superior race of nobility called the Jews.”

    This explains why ‘Multiculture,’ ‘mass immigration,’ ‘diversity’ ‘one world government’ – is essentially an anti-White concentration of narcissist fuelled, mutually antagonistic, closed loop complex of psychopathological klepto-parasitic inferiority syndromes
    And why it means the Ethnic Cleansing of the White Western World – It is planned Genocide!

    Supporting mass immigration means supporting Genocide – A serious criminal offence punishable by death by hanging – why is it part of anyone’s ‘social charter’?

    Surely any falsely perceived benefits or any actual progress are, in reality, vastly outweighed by the offence, punishable by hanging, of advocating or otherwise supporting the significant criminal act of Genocide…?

    The UN Convention on Genocide defines genocide as “any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group”.

    Whites have no protection under UN or human rights legislation. White people are not recognised as being indigenous, however long their ancestors resided in their lands. The Suomi reindeer herders and third world have more rights to British Isles than an actual direct descendent of over 6,000 years constant habitation.

    Thanks to traitorous anti-White Western ‘elite’s’ White’s have been specifically excluded from the:
    United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

    Yet –

    Article 82. States shall provide effective mechanisms for prevention of, and redress for:
    (a) Any action which has the aim or effect of depriving them of their integrity as distinct peoples, or of their cultural values or ethnic identities;

    (b) Any action which has the aim or effect of dispossessing them of their lands, territories or resources;

    (c) Any form of forced population transfer which has the aim or effect of violating or undermining any of their rights;

    (d) Any form of forced assimilation or integration;

    (e) Any form of propaganda designed to promote or incite racial or ethnic discrimination directed against them

    Traitorous anti-White Western ‘elite’ psychopaths, who thrive on chaos and who hope to remain hidden by the chaos they cause, import and coddle Third World thieves, rapists, and murderers, facilitating both the ‘Multiculturalism’ that inflicts robbery, rape, violence on native Europeans, and the ‘Multiculturalism’ that guarantees the fiscal and long term destruction of any nation, knowing that; a singular racial cohesion is almost a positive guarantee to a country having stability and prosperous growth. It’s is a UTTER LIE that we need immigrants to sustain the economy.

    Remember Emma West!

    The poison pill in the multiculturalism meme is the conflict between fundamental operating assumptions and demands of differing societies. Multiculturalism imagines and asserts that enclaves of such societies can exist side-by-side, in enforced economic (e.g.) interaction without overwhelming any benefits from diversity. There are such cases, but there are very serious contrary examples, too.
