The Business Visitor Scheme Under The Points Based System

Migrationwatch called yesterday for much tougher rules on business visitors. The new rules are far too lax and, in particular, permit unlimited secondment of foreign employees to Britain Commenting, the Chairman, Sir Andrew Green, said “The Government scrabbled to produce these rules only days before the system goes live. Far from being “tough” the rules […]

Toughening The Points Based System

With unemployment climbing fast, it is no longer acceptable that jobs which have never been advertised in Britain should be offered to economic migrants. Nor should migrants be admitted without a job to go to. The total of these categories is at least 75,000 jobs a year and probably a good deal more. These arrangements […]

New Poll Indicates Balanced Migration A Vote Winner – Labour And Bme Voters Want Much Lower Immigration

2.3 Million Immigrants Come To Uk In 16 Years

New Government figures have confirmed just how large has been the scale of immigration into the UK in recent years and show that that the vast majority who come to stay are from the third world. An analysis of the latest immigration statistics from the Office of National Statistics by think-tank Migrationwatch shows that in […]

New Points Based System Likely To Result In Higher Immigration

The Government’s claim that their new Points Based system will result in lower levels of immigration is pure spin. The scheme has no limits and, in fact, will probably result in even higher levels of immigration. It is so complex and bureaucratic, with potentially 26,000 job titles, that it is highly likely to lead to […]

The Lisbon Treaty: More Red-tape Round Our Border Controls?

The Lisbon Treaty could further weaken Britain’s ability to control her own borders, according to a report out today by Migrationwatch. The Treaty now sets the EU the specific aim of developing "common policies" for both asylum and immigration, including uniform standards for asylum. It also widens EU powers to define the rights of legal […]

Migrants Should Also ‘earn’ Their Vote
