"What this study doesn't do is to show what wealth our own people could have generated if they weren't subjected to wage-reducing, employment-displacing mass immigration from the EU. Nor does it truly take into account the opportunity costs to the UK of substituting large sections of Britain's workforce with migrant labour. If successive governments had spent as much time developing policies which reduced the growth of the UK's economic underclass as they did kowtowing to Europe, immigration would not be the number one issue on today's political agenda.
"I am also alarmed how the methodology of the report pits migrants from the EU against immigrants from the wider world. I fundamentally disagree with the discrimination of our current system which favours Europeans at the expense of people from the Commonwealth and the rest of the globe. It shouldn't matter which country you are from when applying for a visa. A fair and ethical immigration policy should be based on merit and need.
"Perhaps the UCL team can turn to this area of policy as the topic of their next academic study. This, together with how the Prime Minister can prevent uncontrolled mass migration from continuing to make Britain's working people poorer, whilst Britain remains a member of the European Union is one of the burning questions of our time!"
