I put the blame on immigrants

First published in Readers' Letters

IT would appear that whatever subject Richard Grant writes about, he always finds a space in his letters to have a knock at the UK Independence Party.

He appears concerned that there are apparently many unfinished building sites and houses in Spain and suggests that maybe our building companies could go there and finish the jobs. There appears to be no end to building in this country so why would they be looking for extra work abroad?

He also appears oblivious to the fact that Spanish building laws are vastly different to ours, as many ex-pats have discovered to their cost, so many of these apparently unfinished properties are probably awaiting demolition.

He goes on to suggest that some of our council tenants could be shipped out there to live, an idea which would suggest that even as a dedicated Lib Dem he is equally aware as we UKIP members are that we have a big problem with far too many people looking for accommodation in this country, obviously caused by immigration and our open border policy.

And what about the benefits many of these tenants are enjoying here? Surely he wouldn’t expect we taxpayers send them their benefits in Spain? It’s a sure bet the Spaniards won’t be paying.

Watch out UKIP, there's going to be a lot of heavy rain again tomorrow, probably not due to marriages of the same sex.

Only 3% of immigrants claim benefits. That's less than the general population by a long shot. Get a grip.

Whilst we have so many unemployed in the UK it seems stupid to allow lots more immigrants to come here, whether they are working or not. If of course we ever get dodgy's EU referendum it would be heartless to send them back home.

There are loonies in all the political parties, difference with UKIP is that it's not the guy in charge. Having been married three times this UKIP supporter believes it wrong that not all of the population have the chance to suffer.
