Immigration and the European Union
A reader living overseas recently wrote in asking about the influx of foreign immigration.
Replying on behalf of Nick Griffin MEP, his Constituency outreach office responded:
Thank you for your email regarding immigration and the European Union. As a British National Party MEP, Nick Griffin believes that it is essential that Britain closes its doors to any further immigration. Wave upon wave of immigrants from the far corners of the world has poured into our tiny island since the 1950s. Britain, above all other European countries, offers the warmest welcome and most generous benefit packages to newcomers, so it is not surprising that thousands continue to make the journey to our shores in their search for a better way of life.
Notwithstanding the rhetoric of our elected politicians who wax lyrical about the "enrichment" that immigration has bestowed upon Britain and the British people, the British public are painfully aware of the negative reality of enforced multiculturalism. Faced with growing unemployment and the impending collapse of our health, social and educational services in direct consequence of the excessive demand caused by unrestricted immigration, it is not surprising that the British people are beginning to reach the conclusion that "enough is enough".
The British public are also beginning to realise the folly of our membership of the European Union. Britain is bound inextricably by EU policies and, as a consequence of this subservience, decisions made in the House of Commons can be undermined, contradicted or rendered irrelevant. Indeed, our national parliament is so restricted by EU rules and regulations that there is hardly an area of policy where it remains entirely sovereign. The cost of this suffocating relationship is, moreover, exorbitant - £billions of public money (collected from the beleaguered British taxpayer in ever-increasing sums) is gifted annually to the European Union in return for the imposition of unnecessary and over burdensome bureaucracy.
Mr Griffin and the British National Party believe that decisions on policy matters in economic, social and political spheres should be made by the British Government, with reference primarily to the best interests of Britain and the British people. In order to maintain our national sovereignty and protect our right to determine our own destiny, Britain must leave the European Union as soon as possible. To achieve this end, Nick Griffin MEP launched a campaign in June 2011 calling for a referendum on leaving the EU. Further details of the campaign and the on-line petition are available HERE.
