And not a word about the Muslim immigration -not of the EU. They have been trying to take a strong hold in Britian for years through intimidation, and violence against British citizens. Where is the government's concern?

An interesting article about a very controversial issue that appears to effect us all! There's so much religious bigotry, as well as contempt for "foreigners", people other than one self, making it a dilemma for every nation!

Britain would do better to exclude muslims than their European brothers.They do not advocate sharia law;they do not have demonstrations demanding dearh to those who insult allah;they do no mutilate female genitals;they do not blow up trains;they do no murder off duty soldiers in the street;they do not turn your cities into ghettos of filth and crime.

The UK is a very small country and is already heavily populated with foreign nationals who come here unable to speak the language and are unskilled workers who mainly work on the land that is if they can find employment at all.Many of these people are in fact economic tourists who come here to milk the benefit system and the free health care which they have to pay for in there own countries.I see nothing wrong in charging immigrants for their health care after all is it not a common practice in the US not only to charge foreigners but also their own citizens for this care ?In the case regarding of Allan Yorkowitz and the Muslims this is a contentious issue in the UK the trouble is that the UK is a signature to the Human Rights act and in past attempts to deport people who are in the UK have been prevented from deporting them back to their own countries to face charges of terrorism have been prevented from doing so because the accused would not receive a fair trial or face torture if deported.We have the celebrated case of a Jordanian citizen who was wanted in his home country of Jordan for terrorist activities which resulted in several deaths The UK tried to deport him to his homeland under an extradition warrant from Jordan but was prevented from doing so on the grounds which I have already explained.It took the UK government 13 years to get him deported back to Jordan where he is on trial at the moment.This misuse of the Human Rights act has brought it into disrepute there is now a groundswell opinion backed by many of our MP's to leave the Human Rights act and bring this act back to our own shores and it's one I am all for.

The question that has never been answered in how does the free movement and people correlate to the welfare state. And yes, the pressure on housing has been impacted by immigrants (hell, I am one).

Regardless of what race someone is its time Britain closed the doors For a country that is just an island there are far to many people and are draining the resources of the NHS, housing and benefit systems On top of this we have weak leaders and governments who for some obscure reason think its ok to have muslims in with their own Sharia laws changing our culture so we dont upset them If they carry on as they are i can only see bloodshed in the years ahead It does not help that the British people either are not protesting more and everyone seems to be frightened of being called a rascist or losing their benefits or say its too late so they keep quiet and they have let this situation get as bad as it is What the answer is i dont know but it does not lie with any of the main political parties here at the present because they are like 3 arms off the same body some worse than others
