Putting repatriation into practice is fairly straightforward. We get out of Europe and stop the open door policy adopted by the previous Labour Government... they have destroyed the balance and trust the population had with regards to immigration and have even admitted so themselves.
The page you linked to has some interesting stats.... Showing that the tax havens of Luxembourg and Switzerland have the highest percentage of foreign residents so maybe skews the figures somewhat because there would be little other reason to move there other than to protect your money from being taxed at the higher rates of other countries.
the UK carries over 4 million foreign citizens... third in the list and that most foreign residents are younger on average than the resident population; economic migrants in other words.... with the larger and more propsperous countries taking the larger proportions of what are probably people from the poorer countries which in turn will affect the job prospects of the resident populous. The figures bear this out as the Eastern block countries have the smaller intake of fellow European residents which means that sort of negates your argument in your previous post about the amount of people from the UK travelling to Poland to live and work.
Amazing what statistics can be made to show!
I have said before on numerous occasions that I don't have a problem with your 20mph limits provided that they are "useful and necessary".... spending hundreds of thousands of pounds to achieve such pitiful reductions in average speeds is quite frankly a total waste of money and is largely based on scare stories and nonsense to convince people that they are a wonderful thing when in reality, the overall benefits in many cases are negilible and the financial costs are ridiculous.
With regards to my "predujices" towards cyclists; I have an issue with those cyclists who insist on using the roads when there are clearly marked and expensive cycle lanes in place using the excuses as they do about having to keep stopping and that it is faster to use the roads etc., just as you would have an issue with a car driver who decided to use the pavement because it was easier than using the roads. I cycle myself (albeit occasionally) and always manage to use the facilities that have been provided. It just appears to me that it is usually always the "serious" cyclists that flout the rules and insist on doing things their way rather than just conforming and staying safe; preferring instead to confront drivers for not allowing enough room etc. when there are perfectly good cycle lanes they can use.
Finally, Gdansk is hardly a comparrison with the UK when it comes to traffic volumes. Riding a bike in Poland is much easier because car ownership is a lot less as many cannot afford to run cars.... (You just have to see the standards of most Polish cars on the roads around here to judge that)
Right, I'm going to get my dinner... fingers are hurting.... but I did notice you never commented on the part about foreign types coming over here and setting up rival businesses.... that rarely happens in practice, it is the labour type of work they come for, so our labourers, manual workers etc. are the ones at risk.... just look at how many Poles etc. worked on the Olympic sites... but very few if any would have owned the companies they were working for
