UK braces for immigration boom if euro collapses

Britain’s Home Office is drawing up contingency plans to restrict the number of economic migrants from Greece and other European Union nations in case the euro collapses.

­EU rules allow citizens to work anywhere in any country in the single market, including the UK, with the exception of new members Romania and Bulgaria. People looking for work abroad may see Britain as an attractive option as it is a non-eurozone country.

Home Secretary Theresa May told the Daily Telegraph that “work is on-going” to restrict European immigration in the event of financial collapse.

May didn’t go into detail, but the British government has some room for manoeuvre, as rules are in place to restrict immigration in extreme situations.

May said there was no evidence that immigration was on the rise, and that it is difficult to say how the situation is going to develop in the coming weeks.

Her statement appeared to contradict official figures this week showing that net migration to the UK in the 12 months to last September stood at 252,000, more than double the government’s target of fewer than 100,000 people a year.

At the same time, the number of people emigrating from Britain to work abroad has plunged in the wake of the credit crunch.

With unemployment rates running at over 8 per cent, immigration is seen as putting huge pressure on an already-saturated job market.

The number of people unemployed for more than a year is also at its highest level since the Conservatives were last in power in 1996.

Britain’s limping economy will find it tough to withstand a deteriorating situation in Europe, as figures show that output shrank by 0.3 per cent in the first quarter of 2012.

But the country’s Migration Advisory Committee said EU migration had little or no impact on the native employment rate.

The number of asylum seekers entering the UK also rose in 2011, with a marked increase in applications from Libya and Syria, and the number of illegal immigrants is estimated at up 1 million.

Mrs. May said that work was underway to deny illegal immigrants access to work, housing and even bank accounts.

“The aim is to create here in Britain a really hostile environment for illegal immigration,” she said.

European governments have been preparing secret action plans if Greece descends further into crisis, which could be precipitated if there are no clear winners in next month’s election.

If Greece does leave the eurozone, economists say it’s likely to make matters much worse for other debt-troubled members such as Portugal, Spain and Ireland.

British Prime Minister David Cameron appeared to cast doubt on the future of the euro in comments last week. He told MPs, “It [the eurozone] either has to make-up or it is looking at a potential break-up.”

    If they try to enter the UK, the Brits should shoot them, simple as that, no niggers or non-whites in the UK.

    • Nexus789

      Er….bit late for that. A lot of non white people contribute significantly to life in the UK. There are good and bad wherever you look.

  • Nexus789

    Both political parties have failed to stop migration in the past either as a deliberate policy or incompetence. They have no chance.

  • Vlad the Impaler

    why she is not worried about the millions of non-whites already in the country and sucking ££££ billions in benefits??
    why to take the piss out of fellow white europeans??

  • Jack Longchamp

    This is just populist politico bullshit and media hype.
    They are doing “their job” – best to shoot the politicios,
    then the journalists.

    We don’t WANT any more immigrants. Tell them we’re full up.

    While politicians export our jobs to India and our manufacturing industries to China, they’re simultaneously flooding our country with unwanted, unassimilable immigrants, too many of whom don’t know how to behave in (what used to be) a civilised society.

    Lying politicians pretend these immigrants do the jobs we Brits “won’t” do. That’s just BS. Who do they suppose did those jobs before the immigrants arrived to PREVENT us getting those jobs?

    An indigenous population of around 50 million CAN’T absorb a sudden influx of something like 20 million foreigners, which is what we’ve had to put up with over the past few decades.

    Immigrant crime is out of control, and the immigrants know our laws won’t be used against them, while those few courageous White People who dare to speak the truth in public end up in prison and vilified by the press.

    This country was built BY White People FOR White People. The immigrants contributed NOTHING, but now they rush to benefit from OUR hard work.

    I’ve got nothing against foreigners as individuals, and some of my friends are immigrants, but this country has been taken over by communists and their pets from other countries, many of whom belong in zoos until they learn to behave like real human beings.

    I suspect that the White-hating ziocommunist “British” government is deliberately importing known criminals from other countries to further disenfranchise the people this country rightfully belongs to.

    I don’t blame the immigrants for flocking here to collect the “freebies” on offer. That’s just human nature. It’s the ziocommunist England-hating politicians we need to get rid of, and NOT by voting for more of the same under a different “party” banner. They ALL have to go. The present system of exploitation has to end.

    Once WE control our country, the immigrant problem will very quickly cease to BE a problem.

    Same thing in what was once the USA .
    The claim that immigrants do the work americans don’t want to do is complete BS.

    What Europe and the US need to do is throw out the global banker scum and create a monetary system based on production.
    First, of course these countries need to take back the jobs that have been outsourced to third world dungholes.
    The elites profit handsomely by selling us out and as we head to the unemployment line our countries are flooded with parasite scum who live off of social service programs, for the most part and very few are actually doing the “jobs we wont do” because those jobs are gone.
    The idea of nations surviving off of the service industry is a jewish pipe dream and the high tech jobs go to third world visa holders.

    Rightful citizens are encouraged to further their education for what? To move back in with their parents?

    Wake up folks, your children and grandchildren are depending on it.

    Removing the banking scum, globalist shysters and the puppets that occupy government will not be easy but it can be done if people stood up for what is right.

    Ignore all the little names they have for people who know what’s right.

    Being called a racist, anti-semite or nazi should be considered a compliment as those funny little words mean only that your paying attention and have genuine concerns for the future.
