Immigration debate will get 'very nasty', Labour MP warns

Labour MP and immigration expert, Frank Field, has told a few home truths to the BBC.
'Frank Field, a labour MP, said that immigrants are contributing 'a lot less' than people think to the economy

The immigration debate will get "very nasty" if politicians continue to ignore the pressure the foreigners are placing on Britain's public services, a Labour MP has warned.

Frank Field, a former employment minister, said that immigration is causing Britain's population to increase by the size of the city of Birmingham every two years.

He said that while immigrants make a positive contribution to the economy, it is "a lot less than people think".

He said that the levels of immigration must be questioned at a time when public spending is facing huge cuts.

He told the Today programme on BBC Radio 4: ""If you look at now the rate of increase in population then every two and a half years with people coming in for the first time and with the children of people who have arrived here for the immigrant community, we are actually increasing our population faster than the whole size of Birmingham.'

More here in The Telegraph but not to be repeated on the BBC who prefer to brainwash the British public that all immigration is for the good and that it's racist to question these benefits.
