£1 Billion Migrant Bill:Remain Campaign Rattled As Welfare Spending Soars

David Cameron with Europe’s three Presidents (which should tell you all you need to know about how bloated EU bureaucracy is; ‘Gaulieter’ Martin Schultz, who says public opinion is irrelevant; Donald Tusk who says the European Council with veto and deal that benefits Britain; and bottom, Jean Claude Drunkard, President of the EU commission who has brandy for breakfast

The UK welfare system is expected to pay out more than £1 billion to unemployed European Union (EU) migrants, government data has revealed. The figure does not include spending on the estimated 1 million plus non-EU illegal immigrants in the country. The findings will come as a major blow for the campaign led by David Cameron and supported by most of the Labour party (and even Jeremy Corbyn a longtime opponent of the EU is supporting ‘In’ although in a very lukewarm way) to keep Britain in the EU. Supporters of the ‘Brexit’ campaigns have argued that they demonstrate what anti – EU campaigners have wanted for a long time, that there is an urgent need to reclaim control of our own borders.

This news will be particularly hurtful to the IN campaign because one of their main (though entirely dishonest) arguments is that being in the EU brings our economy net benefits.

In 2013/14, British taxpayers forked out a whopping £886million for unemployed EU migrants living in the UK, and a further £814 million for EU migrants in work, according to a government paper. Ironically, it was released in support of a dossier entitled The Best of Both Worlds, which aims to make the government’s case for Britain remaining within the EU.

In the foreword to the report, the Prime Minister David Cameron wrote: “Our special status gives us the best of both worlds. We will be in the parts of Europe that work for us – influencing the decisions that affect us, in the driving seat of the world’s biggest market and with the ability to take action to keep our people safe.”

But the government was not keen to release the report, and Mr Cameron’s own MPs have ridiculed him. Philip Davies, MP for Shipley told The Express: “It’s amazing we’ve got some figures at last, but one has to question how reliable they are. He’s right; with the supposedly politically neutral civil service having backed IN (bigger bureaucratic empires, bigger jollies for civil servants) the figure could well be deliberately understated, and the issue has been misreported by mainstream media and the ultra globalist BBC.

“It’s quite clear that immigration has gone up recently so the figures must be well over a billion pounds now, even by the Government’s own estimates.

“At last we are laying bare the huge cost of being a member of the EU. The changes the Prime Minister has negotiated are trifling – the only way to restrict benefits to EU migrants is to leave the EU.”

The eye-watering figures, and the failure to renegotiate a better deal have led to a number of pro-Brexit politicians warning that the only way to take control of immigration from the EU, and the welfare payments that come with it, is to leave the EU. It is also the only way to limit the flow of illegal immigrants into the country after they have illegally entered the EU through countries that cannot or choose not to enforce border controls.

  3. The increase in fat profits of construction, services & retail sector companies, due in large part to wage costs driven down by past & present mega EU immigration levels, must outweigh the welfare bill. (Of course they don’t give a flying f*k about the horrendous social impact cost that we’ve all seen is involved ) Otherwise why would they and affiliated politicians all be chomping at the IN bit? The “economic benefits” of staying in? They don’t say beneficial to who. Only 3 and a 1/2 months of EnnUi to go then :-O

    • Of course it’s about profit. while a lot of people scream ‘racism’ at any mention of controlling immigration, mass immigration and free movement were only ever about reducing labour costs. Not many people know that the way the EU minimum wage rules work, an employer only has to pay the minimum wage of the country in which the employers business is registered.
      So Wimpey, McAlpine, Barratt etc. sub out labour only contracts to companies registered in Romania (min wage €1.50 per hour), Bulgaria (€1.28), Slovakia (€2.33) etc. where the minimum wage is much lower than UK’s (Euro equivalent) €8.60 per hour)

      Being a capitalist in the corporate friendly, people hostile EU is nice work if you can get it, being a minimum wage worker from Romania or Latvia is not so good. If only the Islington screechers who want us in understo ….. what am I talking about, what they understand is if we came out they couldn’t keep their Romanian nannies employed for £1.20 an hour and a foldaway bed in the basement)
