2.5 Million Unemployed, but 1 Million Illegal Immigrants and ‘Tens of Thousands’ to Avoid Annual Cap
Unemployment rose by 44,000 to nearly 2.5 million in the last three months of 2010, according to the latest report from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) — while other figures showed that there are now over one million illegal immigrants, and hundreds of thousands of “asylum seekers” in Britain.
To add insult to injury, the ConDem regime’s ‘immigration cap’ specifically excludes ‘tens of thousands’ of migrants, EU workers and a free trade deal with India will allow in thousands of Indian workers over and above any other immigration figures.
According to the ONS figures, one of the biggest increases was in youth unemployment, with one in five 16 to 24-year-olds now out of work. The overall unemployment rate has risen to 7.9 percent and the number of people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance also rose by 2,400 to 1.46 million in January.
In April 2010, a MigrationWatch UK report said that there are more than one million illegal immigrants in Britain and that the number of visa overstayers is increasing by at least 60,000 per year. This is because the last Tory government abolished all exit controls at British airports and ports.
The number of asylum seekers runs at anywhere between 30,000 and 60,000 per year, with more than 92 percent of them being allowed to stay even if their asylum applications are rejected.
Meanwhile, all foreigners earning more than £150,000 a year will be exempt from the ‘immigration cap’ hoax, it was announced this week.
The supposed cap, which is to come into force in April, will not affect any migrant worker already in the UK even if they change jobs or visas.
Companies will also still be able to bring in overseas staff who earn less than a planned salary cap so long as they rotate them each year.
Around 36,000 'skilled' workers arrived in the UK last year alone.
The total disregard for young British people in favour of outsiders has become a hallmark of the Westminster parties.
Other ONS figures released earlier this week showed that 20 percent of all new graduates in Britain have been unable to find work and have had to resort to dole money to live.
The figures also showed that 45 percent of 16 to 17-year-old school leavers ready for work, were also unable to find a job.
For new graduates, the unemployment rate has doubled since the start of the recession to 20 percent in the third quarter of last year. It is now at its highest for more than a decade.
The jobless rate among graduates has jumped by 6.3 percent compared with 5.3 percent for those without a degree.
Despite this, the Government has agreed to participate in a scheme to allow thousands of Indian IT and other workers free access to Britain’s job market in terms of an EU free trade deal with India.
This free trade agreement was piloted through all of its major stages by the previous Labour government in the form of Peter Mandelson, and has been endorsed by the Conservative/Lib-Dem coalition.
Once again, the establishment parties have all activley colluded to put the British people last.
