If you read this you will see that the Independent article ignores certain facts.
Migrants are cheaper then locals because they weren't born and educated at the expense UK tax payers - they come ready made. Secondly they are young and fit and so do not require so much help as older natives. Thirdly the increase in population resulting partly from migrants means we need to provide more health, housing and education services which has to be paid for and I don't see any mention of this. Furthermore, many migrants transmit some of their earnings home, which is surely a loss to our economy. Also, although I'm not sure what the exact rules are, if they pay National Insurance are they not entitled to some sort of pension when they retire, wherever they will be living?
