Reader’s Comment of the Day: Pay migrant benefits at the same rate as their home country


In response to Mark Ellse: Cameron’s clampdown on benefits should apply to Brits as well as Europeans, Cynical Ex Academic wrote:

There were other options that could have been considered, such as paying benefits at the levels applicable in the migrants’ home country, and only for those things that are covered there. That would have had the additional benefit of increasing payments for Brits abroad! How could any good European be against that?

Another possibility might have been to consider these benefits to be a form of overseas aid, and therefore payable out of that budget, and yet another would be to offset these benefits again sums payable to the EU.
