British Prime Minister, Theresa May set to pander to left-wing appeasers in her own party in an attempt to distort the real UK immigration statistics.
Leading left-wing or leftist appeasing Conservatives have been desperately attempting to appeal to the Prime Minister to remove the student’s from the nation’s immigration figures, removing this data helps the government to pretend they are reducing the numbers of people coming to the UK down to the tens-of thousands which has long been their goal.
This foolish stratagem is a blatant attempt to trick people that want tighter immigration controls and Brexiteer’s by making the figures look more acceptable and make their arguments less valid.
The last few decades immigration has reached record breaking heights in the UK, creating a very dangerous strain on the nations infrastructure, obviously the NHS, Schools in the UK , Police Service and integration.
Maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that the Scottish Conservatives MP’s are behind this move led by Ruth Davidson, and that’s along with Amber Rudd the apparently now lefty Home Secretary they want to remove 75,000 people a year to aide their deceit from the British public.
A source from the UK government told the Daily Mail just this week: “It is inevitable that someone will bring forward an amendment on this, and it is very difficult to see how we could defeat it.”
The report also included this info:
Aout 438,000 foreign students are currently studying here. Removing them from the statistics could make a significant difference to headline immigration figures.
Mrs May resisted the move for years as home secretary, warning that it would be seen by voters as an attempt to ‘fiddle the figures’. She said keeping foreign students in the statistics would maintain pressure on universities to root out bogus students.
Mrs May also cited research suggesting up to 100,000 foreign students a year failed to return home after graduating. But supporters of the change argue that exit checks show the vast majority of foreign students do not overstay
Just in March Financial Times went through the argument of favouring the student numbers being kept in the figures.
George Freeman former science minister & head of Mrs May’s policy board told Sky News: “I think it is very important that we signal we are open to Britain as an education beacon of the world. It is one of our great industries. I want to bring more students here,” he said.
Net migration plummeted 100,000in the year to June following the referendum but is still well off that Conservative target [of 100,000] at 230,000. The number of students coming to the UK fell by 23,000 to 141,000 over the same period.
Brexiteer & former MP of Aldershot, Sir Gerald Howarth had this to say last month: “The numbers are still far too high and this must be addressed as soon as Britain leaves the EU in March 2019. The Government should adopt a British work permit system to cut net migration to sustainable levels last seen in the mid 1990s.”
