UK Immigration

New page: UK: Immigration, Economics and Pensions. The conclusion reads:

"The UK is ageing, and we need more working-age people to fill the emptying hole in our demographic make-up. Otherwise, multiple industries and all pensions are at severe risk. Already, some industries and local economies depend on immigrants, especially as cheap labour to do work that not many others want to do but also we have serious shortages in some skilled trades, for example, nearly half the new doctors and nurses employed in the National Health Service have qualified abroad. We already have shortages of medical staff. Imagine the world without half the staff of the NHS, cheap labourers working in industries that our ageing population avoids, no pensions for increasing numbers of the elderly, and you imagine a UK without immigration. Despite this, some extremist, simpleton and short-sighted parties (such as the BNP and NF) campaign for a complete stop to immigration, and even promise to send home nationalized foreigners. With a population that is ageing, they will soon find that they have rather a lot of pensioners and not many workers."

well being native to the uk, i in general think immigration at its current level is bad thing. This country is small and overcrowded. Its becomeing ugly. And regardless of the short to mid team econoic effects, I'd advocat substatialy reducing population. the country will just ahev to 'cope' with fewer peopel its not the end of the world. At there current rate immigants are undermining our society's uniformity, making it less stable,and in the long tearm (i beleive) less economically viable, especially when theres economic melt down. at the end of the day i guess these things are oveten a quetion of personal preferance, which comes first, soceity or the economy.
