Tories shoot for the sewer on migration

Tories shoot for the sewer on migration

Stand up to Racism co-convener Sabby Dhalu said: "The Tories look set to make employers pay more to hire migrant workers, while making migrants pay more to use the NHS".

The British prime minister set out plans to further tighten rules for skilled workers from outside the European Union (EU), which involves anyone employing a non-EU worker to be expected to pay 2,000 pounds for each worker every year.

Net migration - the difference between the number of people moving to Britain and those leaving - was 273,000 in the year to September 2016, and has not been below 100,000 in 20 years.

The blueprint also says spending on defense will be increased by at least 0.5 percent more than inflation every year, with a commitment to meet the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation target of spending at least 2 percent of GDP on defense.

"We will expect students to leave the country at the end of their course, unless they meet new, higher requirements that allow them to work in Britain after their studies have concluded". "We want to increase the Skills Charge because that money can then be put into training people here to be able to take those jobs while we still have a system that brings in the brightest and best into the country", May said, in response to questions after her manifesto speech at Halifax in the West Yorkshire region of England today.

Mrs May also sought to appeal to UKIP voters - she hopes their support will take her to victory in dozens of Labour held seats across the United Kingdom - with tough talk on immigration as she reiterated her commitment to getting immigration down to the tens of thousands.

Steve Webb, director of policy at Royal London, said: "If these changes are implemented, more families will be at risk of seeing a large part of the value of their home wiped out by care costs later in life".

Free school lunches for infants in England will be scrapped, but there will be free breakfasts across the primary aged pupils.

On top of that the Tory manifesto boasts "Britain is one of the world's most successful multi-racial, multi-cultural, multi-religious societies" before acknowledging "we have communities that are divided, often along racial or religious lines".

Instead, the much-anticipated Conservative Party manifesto for the 2017 General Election contains a general pledge to work with worldwide organisations to protect endangered species and the marine environment. There are promises to strengthen regulators and cap energy prices to ensure consumers aren't ripped off by utility firms.

- Ending the pensions "triple lock" which guarantees the weekly state pension rises each year by more than inflation, average earnings or 2.5 percent - whichever is highest.

The money saved by means-testing the winter fuel payment will go directly to fund health and social care.

Under the new plan, no one would be forced to reduce their assets below £100,000 to pay for social care, or be forced to sell their home to pay their care bill while they were alive or their partner lived there.

Workers will also be given the right to request up to a year's unpaid leave to care for a relative.

Pro-Europe Tory MPs would find it harder to join fellow Europhiles in the Labour Party, Liberal Democrats and Scottish National Party (SNP) to form cross-party, anti-Brexit coalitions.
