If migrants are taking all the jobs and reducing salaries, then presumably there will be an increase in indigenous unemployment. Surely the anti-immigration groups would have been very quick to point that out had it been the case.
It's not really as simple as that. Many of the jobs people come to the UK to do would be filled by apprentices and newly trained staff. Whether it's brickies, welders or nurses there are not enough apprenticeships or training schemes as it's easier to just employ foreign workers than train up people from scratch.
It isn't just about jobs either, it is simply about high levels of population and the fact it's so unsustainable which has an adverse effect on so many areas of life. Restricting our high levels of immigration is the quickest and most sensible way of stopping this before it costs us in terms of money and living standards. Many countries around the world get this and do just that.
Also, where is the evidence that salaries have reduced due to migrant workers?
Go to any building site and ask about rates, see why many labour suppliers in a host of industries can advertise a job at low rates and get a flood of applicants. As said earlier it's just supply & demand.
Sorry we are all listening and we heard the message "Leave!" . Because David C decided to make an advisory referendum decisive, the opportunity to say "Don't be daft!" was missed,
When you say Cameron should not have given us the right to vote on EU membership you are effectively saying the majority that chose leave should not have been allowed a say in the first place. I think this sums up the attitude of many remainers quite well.
So yes we are listening and doing what we can, but no-one has yet convinced us that there is any greater merit in Brexit than Remain,
This really does need to stop. It is obvious to all that we cannot know the outcome of Brexit until we leave and have had a real go at making it work. It should not be down to the majority vote to convince the minority in order to even begin. Likewise we should not be letting people who have been against Brexit from the start and only want to thwart the whole idea have control.
We have had years of EU membership, we know what that looks like. Lets now try and make a real go of life outside the UK and then in years to come who knows, we might see another referendum. At least if we do both sides will have real data and know what life in & out is like.
