Labour excused all immigration, any immigration, on the grounds that it added to GDP; on the face of it, this is true. If our broke nation has to borrow an extra £100bn to pay for housing and health care for sick and unproductive immigrants, the nation's GDP increases by that amount and more, as the multiplier effect kicks in. Per capita GDP in contrast falls - everyone in the nation generates less GDP as we have to bear the burden of the unproductive immigrants. And that is Labour's great con, their massive fraud; there is no direct link between per capita GDP and median earnings but the impact of the cost of living that Miliband is basing his campaign upon is Labour's own doing; we are all paying for Labour's immigrants.
The housewife paying the same at the checkout for a trolley only two-thirds as full as last year, the pensioner who doesn't dare to turn the heating on as Autumn chills cut the air, the young couple relying on hand-me-downs to clothe and shoe their kids - all are paying the cost of maintaining Labour's uncontrolled immigration. In this part of South London it's West Africans; there are an estimated 1m illegal Africans in the UK, crowding the maternity wards, filling the schools, blocking the buses with pushchairs. Elsewhere it's 600,000 inactive EU migrants, or 500,000 chronically sick and elderly Pakistani dependents. And they're the reason we're all feeling the squeeze. But don't blame the immigrants; it's not their fault but the fault of the treasonous morons who held the door open - the Labour Party.
