A furtheR increase in net migration to the UK – 78,000 – is putting unacceptable strain on our struggling essential hospital, education and social services. The UK simply cannot absorb continuing migration on this scale with apparently no control under the current EC rules.
Our government is failing miserably to meet targets and is clueless about how to tackle the problem. The stark reality is that this will mean longer waiting lists at our hospitals and doctors’ surgeries and our schools bursting at the seams.
