2,000 migrants a day given right to live in UK

By James Kirkup, Political Correspondent and Sophie Borland

Last Updated: 2:07am GMT 21/03/2008

Almost 2,000 immigrants are being granted the right to live and work in Britain every day, official figures have disclosed.

More than 710,000 foreigners received National Insurance numbers last year, an increase of eight per cent from 2005-06, according to figures published yesterday.

The statistics also show that migrants make up 10 per cent of the workforce in some areas. Local authorities with particularly high numbers of registrations included Newham, in London, with over 16,000, Brent with 15,600, and Birmingham with 14,550.

The figures were obtained by the Conservatives, who last night said they showed the Government had lost control of the immigration system.

Chris Grayling, the shadow secretary for work and pensions, said: "It seems ministers have little idea of what's going on."

The Local Government Association (LGA) said the figures provided more evidence that central government funding for council services was not keeping pace with population changes.

Sir Simon Milton, the LGA's chairman, said: "The speed and scale of migration combined with the shortcomings of official population figures is placing pressure on funding for services like children's services and housing.

"This can even lead to unnecessary tension and conflict. Improving alternative sources of information such as GP registrations and National Insurance numbers as part of a new package of measurements would allow the Government to gain a much clearer picture of migrant movements.

The NHS isn't coping now, the roads are at a stand still, not enough houses for those already here, this government has got to be removed or the country is going to collapse.

So topple your goverment. Protest. Do something if this is a problem. Don't idle, don't think that your "good" political factions will get your concerns out, its the people themselves that have to make a point, not some puppets in goverment.

Its too late they have everyone either reliant on their handouts or in so much debt they are afraid to rock the boat. Thats 2000 new Labour voters a day and with the polls showing a 14 point Tory lead expect the floodgates to open wider.

Sheesh guys, stop being so negative. Try and focus a little on the benefits that this Enrichment of our Diversity brings;

Drug-resistant TB case confirmed

Doctors in Glasgow are treating Scotland's first diagnosed case of the drug-resistant XDR tuberculosis strain.

The man who has the XDR-TB strain is reported to have come to the UK from Somalia. He is now in isolation at the Gartnavel General Hospital.

story continues at taxpayers expense.

See ? It's not ALL doom and gloom :)

Meow Purr.

Been there, done that. It's about as effective as pi***ng on a house fire. The politicians in this country talk big, but are ultimately weak. They always cave to the PC brigade and the white-hat sycophants that infest Whitehall's corridors of funding. Nothing will change until it all blows up on the streets and then all that will happen is they'll all sit there and point the accusing finger at everybody else.
