EU deal and all that.

Nigel Farage predicted some time ago that many people would come here from Romania and Bulgaria on the heels of other eastern Europeans like Poles who have made their homes here.

However even he has acknowledged on Twitter that more people have come from these countries then even he predicted. He has attacked David Cameron's EU deal on putting a break on EU migrants claiming benefits as Cameron thinks this and general help from the EU will stop or at least put a break on the numbers of migrants coming here from eastern Europe.

Employment minister Priti Patel has also said the deal will not stop EU migrants because as long as the UK is in the EU Britain will never have control of its own borders. Patel along with Iain Duncan Smith, Chris Grayling, Michael Gove and current mayor of London Boris Johnson all support the out campaign.

Theresa May the Home Office minister appears to back Cameron's EU deal and the clause within the deal that will in theory at least put a break on the benefits Romanian and Bulgarian migrants will be able to claim.

According to figures released from the Office of National Statistics migration from these countries increased in a year from 3,000 to 323,000.

The figure is as has been said is a lot higher than Cameron predicted but he says he is confident that his deal and the EU will bring down these figures.

Lets propose that on 23 June the UK leaves the EU and presumably at some point Europeans from whatever nation will not be able to come to the UK as quickly as they could under EU rules. They would have to go down a different road to get into the UK but this is the argument of the out campaign that the UK would then be in control out of its immigration policy rather than the EU in Brussels. That would still leave people coming here from Commonwealth countries such as India, Pakistan, Jamaica etc all non - European people and many non - Christians which brings with it its own problems in cohesion with the native Britons.

There is another problem here the more migrants here wherever they come from is the fact it will be a strain on our welfare system, our jobs market, our NHS and other services and also for state housing and private housing. The UK is only an island and is already getting overcrowded with more cars on the roads thus adding to pollution which make people ill and in the worst scenario the fumes can kill people particularly those suffering with asthma or other lung illnesses.

Also because of the growth in population including the 20,000 Syrians the UK is taking in over a period of five years more land will have to be set aside to build swellings on as the current stock of council housing is not enough and in the private sector more greedy landlords offering second and third rate accommodation for prospective tenants.

The issue of immigration comes up time and again whenever ordinary Britons are asked about what bothers them in this country and this subject of immigrants, migrants, refugees call them what you will always probably be a concern for native Britons as they at the end of the day will be the people who have to live by or with and inter - act with these newcomers. Where as those people like the Royals, MPs, those in a position of power and authority will by and large be shielded from this.
