Newly released figures suggest that Eastern European migrants are taking a record number of jobs in the United Kingdom, with 2.37 million now employed.
The greatest factor behind the large increase is the increase in the number of Romanian and Bulgarian migrants living and working in England. As of June this year, over a third of a million migrants from these Eastern European countries were working in the UK.
This is in addition to the 997,000 migrants from the so-called “EUA8” countries (Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia).
A more concerning statistic perhaps is that 1 in 5 classified as unemployed in the UK are migrants, with the vast majority of these (219,000 of 317,000) coming from outside the European Union.
There are also nearly 100,000 EU nationals unemployed in the United Kingdom, all of whom are eligible for generous unemployment benefits the moment they step foot in the country.
The moral of the story? Migrants can take both your jobs and your benefits simultaneously, provided your treacherous government allows enough of them into the country.
This data comes against a backdrop of Brexit betrayal, whereby the powers that be have signalled their intent to keep the country’s borders wide open.
There will be no hard border with the Republic of Ireland, they’ve declared, signalling their intent to allow a backdoor to remain open for EU migrants who wish to pass freely through the Irish border.
