Do you have any idea how many brits I've met who are milking out tax credits? Give me a fucking break (since you like this kind of language)!
It's nice to know the Brits have such low faith to their systems and laws.
That's kind of my point Nikolas, there are already so many people doing it in this country we don't need to import them too.
I don't think it is a stupid way of looking at things, could you elaborate on why you think so a little more? Also dude, there was no need to be so rude.
Boyd, (legal) immigrants are entitled to nothing at all until their first two years of a working history in the UK, by which point they have paid taxes and contributed towards their own benefit allowance (should they ever need it).
Bla bla bla....
First off, not trying to be rude with the bla bla bla, just you said a lot of other stuff and I don't really need to quote the entire post.
Second off, I'm not entirely sure that this is true of those migrant workers who become pregnant, there has actually been a baby boom amongst the immigrants in my town of late. Including one woman who lives near me who seems to have suddenly acquired a baby, seemingly without ever being pregnant.
And yeh, I know a lot of british people do that too, but in most cases they wait until retirement age to do it, and you do ofcourse have these british celebrities who claim to love the country but decide to keep their millions in offshore accounts or just not live here at all, so that the tax man doesn't get his cut. I am kind of divided on that one though, one one hand it's money they've earned fairly so why should the government take a big chunk of it? And on the other hand they earned that money really easily and with their accumulated millions they can afford to pay 40% tax.
Also, LimpingFish brings up a valid point; the discussion does seem to have wandered a bit off of the original topic. But these are the reasons that people are turning away from the main political parties to those such as BNP and UKIP. And although it may be true that immigrants don't really do much harm other than make us feel uncomfortable (after all, when an animal pisses all over it's home it's not too happy when some other animal comes along - and we really have pissed all over our country here) but can anyone really argue that it does any good when because of them the BNP gets more seats and supporters? And also gets us all blaming them instead of actually trying to sort the country out?
My dad has worked alongside a lot of immigrants - including one Lithuanian woman who by her own admission hated the english, asians and any other eastern european - and the vast majority of them really do miss their homes, which makes me think they would really be better off trying to fix the problems with their own countries instead of running all across the EU. And although you could argue that because a lot of them do seem to send money across to their families that it is helping their own economy get stronger it isn't really that affective.
