YOU ask whether we think Malcolm Moss is right in his: "Warnings on influx of workers".
I think he is totally wrong. The figures for immigration bandied about by right-wing tabloids and 'think-tanks' such as Migration Watch do not take into account the number of people leaving the country, nor the numbers of foreign workers who stay here for just a couple of years before going elsewhere to work.
The problem lies mainly with the neo-liberal economy and the labour 'market' which forces workers to compete with each other for jobs. Ever since
Thatcher, governments have slavishly followed this philosophy which has led to many jobs being sent abroad.

He mentions people being priced out of the housing market. Again, the problem here is not with the migrant workers, but with greedy landlords, many of whom have bought property under 'buy-to-let' schemes which force both rents and house prices up.
Before pandering to the agenda of the far right, the whole situation should be analysed properly.
