UK must say no to European immigrants, British PM says

daily alternative | alternative news - UK must say no to European immigrants, British PM says

Britain should say “no” to immigrants from Eastern European countries who want to take jobs in the UK, British Prime Minister David Cameron has said.

During his visit to the MINI Plant in Oxford, Cameron said “as a country what we ought to be saying is no” to immigrants who are taking local jobs.

“You go round factories in our country and half the people in the factory have come from Poland or Lithuania or Latvia,” Cameron said, adding, “Let’s have sensible controls on immigration, particularly from outside the EU where we can cap the number of people who come.”

He also noted that the educational system should do more to ensure Britons leave school with enough skills and qualifications once they enter the job market.

Earlier in July, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) revealed that native Britons are less likely to have higher levels of education and employment than immigrants.

According to the ONS figures, 21 percent of foreign nationals were employed in banking, finance and insurance, compared with 17 percent of British nationals.

Moreover, nearly 40 percent of foreign nationals gained qualifications at degree standard or higher, compared with 29 percent of native Britons.

This comes as Britain Home Office’s backlog of half a million unresolved immigration and asylum cases will take almost four decades to clear.

Police Will Be Able To Read Everyone’s Internet Search History Under New Plan

UK Police are asking the government for new surveillance powers to be able to view the Internet search history of every single person in the country.

Richard Berry, the National Police Chiefs’ Council spokesman told The Guardian that “We want to police by consent, and we want to ensure that privacy safeguards are in place. But we need to balance this with the needs of the vulnerable and the victims. We essentially need the ‘who, where, when and what’ of any communication – who initiated it, where were they and when did it happened. And a little bit of the ‘what’, were they on Facebook, or a banking site, or an illegal child-abuse image-sharing website?”

“Five years ago, [a suspect] could have physically walked into a bank and carried out a transaction. We could have put a surveillance team on that but now, most of it is done online. We just want to know about the visit,” he added.

It is likely that police are already looking at your online activity, but just want the power to do it legally. As we learned from whistleblower Edward Snowden, governments are very interested what their citizens are doing online, and they do have the technology to spy on every telephone call and Internet communication.

Police in the UK have been attempting to reach for these powers through legislation for years, but they have been blocked on multiple occasions. This new effort proves that they will not be giving up on getting legal permission for their spying programs.

MP David Davis told The Guardian “It’s extraordinary they’re asking for this again, they are overreaching and there is no proven need to retain such data for a year.”

Home Secretary Theresa May will announce the specifics of the plan during a meeting about the Government’s new surveillance bill in the House of Commons on Wednesday.

“I’ve said many times before that it is not possible to debate the balance between privacy and security, including the rights and wrongs of intrusive powers and the oversight arrangements that govern them without also considering the threats that we face as a country,” May said.

“They include not just terrorism from overseas and home-grown in the UK, but also industrial, military and state espionage.They include not just organized criminality, but also the proliferation of once physical crimes online, such as child sexual exploitation. And the technological challenges that that brings. In the face of such threats we have a duty to ensure that the agencies whose job it is to keep us safe have the powers they need to do the job,” she added.
