Post Election agenda of both parties in UK oppose immigration

So finally the Brits got a taste of unfettered immigration of people of 'special' countries and have now decided to oppose immigration.

Quote:
Curbs on immigration top Labour, Tory priority lists

LONDON: The general election manifestos of the two principal political parties in Britain — Labour and Conservative —to be released this week will include tough, new restrictions on immigration as well as more vigilance in respect of student visas, TOI has learned from reliable party political sources.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown is scheduled to launch Labour party's manifesto in Birmingham on Monday. This document will "recognise (the British) people's legitimate concerns" and "not more immigration". It will also promise that by the end of this year "electronic border controls will count people in and out of the country".

The Labour government is already introducing an Australian-style points system for residence and citizenship, in which competence in English will become a prerequisite.

David Cameron, leader of the Conservatives, will unveil his manifesto on Tuesday. This is going to be even more categorical on intake of foreigners. It will promise "an annual limit on the numbers of non-EU (European Union) economic migrants allowed to work here, taking into consideration the effects a rising population has on our public services and local communities".

As a member state, Britain cannot prevent a free movement of people within the EU. But outside this bloc, as for instance from a country like India, it can reduce entry, if it so wishes.

Re: Election agenda of both parties in UK oppose immigration

chutiya bana raile sab public ko (what more can you expect anyway from politicians)... If they cannot prevent/curb movement within EU, rest of the measures are pretty much drop in a lake.
I also saw in a TV programme a couple of days ago that quite a lot of immigration happens within UK ex-pats. UK has more people out of the country than EU has in UK. These people coming back is more of a burden than EU immigrants. No EU immigrants - statistically - are not as big a problem as EU immigrants and reverse immigrants in terms of tackling population problems.
That aside, the strictness of procedures has already started getting felt. People are getting their VISAs rejected for any stupid reason. I know of a couple of friends whose work Visas have come through but their dependant's visas have been rejected...
