Around 500 Britons a day are now leaving the country to live abroad, not surprising really. Most of them are heading for Australia, Spain and France. However the number of immigrants coming into this country far exceeds the number of people leaving. Britain’s soft touch welfare system makes it a magnet for immigrants.

I heard quite an interesting interview recently on a breakfast tv station here between an immigrant and a reporter. The reporter asked the man why he had chosen to come to Britain, to which he replied that it was a really easy country to get into. The man was also asked what he was going to do here and if he was going to get a job. The reply came back, “No I came to Britain for an easy life. I want a house". It’s no wonder the benefits system and the National Health Service here is in such a terrible state.
