WHAT do you think the voters want more of, of all the things on the policy card? You guessed it – more immigration. Up and down this country you can hear them now, all chanting with their placards: what do we want? More immigration? When do we want it? Now!!
If this is your wish, then vote for Sajid Javid, who has called for a ‘flexible, sensible attitude to immigration.’ This is opposed to what? Your idiotic attitude you have in pointing out that current immigrations numbers are not sustainable. That will teach you, dear reader.
The Home Secretary again: “I want to see more international students come to our country,” Javid told an event in London organised by the think-tank British Future in reference to international students. If they’re coming here, studying in our great universities, if they want to work afterwards we should make it easier for them to stay and work, and not say, you’ve got to go back home, just for the sake of it. We need a more positive attitude to this. I think the country would welcome this.”
There you go folks: is this something you would welcome? This week it was revealed that there are more Singapore students studying in Oxford than those from North England. So not only are British students going to give up their places to international students at university, they should give up their graduate jobs also, because the graduate job market is not tight enough as it is.
The immigration policy run by the Labour and Conservative government has gutted much of the working class in this country – now they want to gut the rising middle class also. And this policy float comes at the same time as Ministers are forever banging on about social mobility of poorer British students.
Well you cannot have it both ways, if you view social mobility as a zero-sum game then for poor kid to go up in the ladder, a middle-class kids must come down. That is fair enough between citizens within in the country, but if we are now saying international students who come here are to go up the ladder, then it immediately means that middle-class students go down. It also means those working-class students don’t get a look in.
Sajid Javid thinks this is something middle-class parents should welcome, these same middle-class parents who have paid the taxes to keep these Universities a float in the first place.
To which I say: What do you take us for? Complete idiots? Why would we welcome this?
I also don’t believe that it is very moral to steal the most talented students from other countries least able to spare them just so we can paper over the cracks of our education system which is in many areas not up to scratch.
And if that wasn’t enough, “At the British Future event, Javid reiterated his intention to scrap the Conservatives’ long-standing – and never met – official target to limit annual net migration into the UK to the tens of thousands.”
Say it again people: What do we want: more immigration, a cut in pay and more pressure on public services and universities. What else do we want? For my adult child to be squeezed out of the job market? When do we want it? Now!
If this is what you want vote Javid and vote often.
