UK Immigration Plan Stifles Development, Claims Study

There seems to be no end to the mounting criticisms directed at UK immigration rule what with a fresh report suggesting the UK immigration rule has become a somewhat frightening experience for firms/business enterprises even as it is stifling and checking development & growth while offering almost nil political advantages for the lawmakers/legislators.

The study in question hints that the administration would do well to end its policy of decreasing net migration to 10s of 1000s with the reason being the goal is not possible to fulfill even while it makes it rather difficult for the companies to have the most qualified aliens on their pay-rolls.

According to concerned persons behind the study–by making the subject one of quantity, instead of quality–the regime has changed the whole immigration subject into a figures game. They stressed that success or collapse is duly examined by the inputs (of persons), and not results, and that the Home Office rule is at odds with the rule of the administration.

Remarkably, political stress around immigration have deepened lately as early net cuts have almost petered-off, in the process, making it growingly doubtful and uncertain that the in-office British home secretary will manage to fulfill the Conservatives’ promise to cut-down yearly net overseas movement to the UK to less than 100,000, prior to the coming election.

Fresh authorized statistics reveal that while the secretary’s latest curbs on the non-European Union (EU) employees & students are leading to the desired effects–and decreasing the total figures–an increase of employees from the crisis-plagued nations of the southern Europe is reportedly boosting the numbers once more. The same led to heated discussions as to how the nation may eventually become less appealing to the EU visitors, leading to fresh curbs on the alleged benefit visitors, which will reportedly come into force from January 1.

In a related development, a fresh study from a new research centre hints that the long-term influence of the Tories’ net migration strategy would be to decrease the gross domestic product (GDP) per capita appreciably, and to eat into the public finances. While–thanks to the decrease in the number of the workers—gross wages would become better–to a certain extent, due to the ensuing swell in taxes–to manage the lost receipts, would denote that post-tax salaries actually decrease.

A decrease in net migration to 100,000 would lead to a drop of 11% in the overall GDP during the course of the coming 50 years even as by the year 2060, the GDP per person would too be 2.7% lower, vis-à-vis with where it would eventually be, minus the said migration reduction, or so it is claimed.
