"His attempt to cap benefits for EU citizens for up to 4 years is unrealistic. His attempt remove in-work benefits is illegal under EU law. Strict EU rules outline very clearly that it is illegal to discriminate from one EU worker to another, making Cameron’s benefit cap impossible to implement for as long as Britain is a member of the European Union. To implement Cameron’s benefit cap, a treaty change within the EU is required which requires unanimity from all member states.
"The fact remains that as a country we cannot control the quantity and quality of migration into the UK, whilst we remain a borderless country inside of the EU. Figures released yesterday showing net migration levels increasing to 260,000 prove this.
“Cameron has been forced to make this speech today because of UKIP’s recent parliamentary success in Clacton and Rochester. However, with Labour and the Conservatives announcing new immigration policies in an attempt to con the British people that they have solutions to the mass immigration allowed by European treaties that they have signed is exposed for all to see. It is now more evident than ever that UKIP is the only party driving a positive debate on migration, and presenting a realistic, fair and ethical policy as a solution.”
