How many times in how many newspapers have there been stories about people invading our borders, coming into this country and putting an untold strain on the economy. I agree whole heartedly in all that the papers say apart from the facts.
I do not believe it is the few drops in the ocean of suffering that the Government is letting through, it is not those people who are fleeing for their lives that pose a threat in any way to this country.
Far from it in fact, I believe that those few who are allowed into this country will do as those in the past have done on so many occasions and add their own distinctive individuality and make our culture weaker.
I think that the problem lies wit those from foreign shores who come into this country, set up their businesses and try to force us to conform to their way of life, then refuse to pay their fair share of taxes.
Think about all the big American companies up and down our high streets forcing their own American Ideal on us. Finding any loophole in the law to get away from paying what any other business in this country does.
If we could collect the tax that is owed, not just the American giants but by all the companies we could re-fund the NHS, we could rebuild so much of this country that has been left to slide away. Social housing springs to mind, over the last 40 years almost all of the Council houses have been sold off never to be replaced. Just walk up and down any major high street to see the end result of that move.
Let the Government seek to rebalance the national books by going after the people who owe billions rather than trying to scrape the savings from those who have little or nothing.
