Apologise if this has been covered already

The EU changing it regulations so immigrants can sponge off our system quicker,

"from April 2011, immigrants from Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Hungary, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia and the Czech Republic – where income levels are 40 per cent of the European average – will be allowed to claim Jobseekers’ Allowance and other benefits after just three months".

We're going to need a fleet. We'll have to raise taxes and cut cut spending. Like I said, we're going to need that fleet.

Oh you think its acceptable that we are almost bankrupt but can magically afford to import unemployed foreign types?

Please enlighten us as to why you think OUR taxes should be stolen in this manner??

Most former Soviet bloc countries pay lower unemployment benefits than Britain. In Latvia, the monthly unemployment allowance is £57.20 compared with the UK’s £200-£256.
Fine, the EU want us to step in line with the rest of Europe, so let's bring our benefits down to the level of the rest of them, should make life easier and provide some more home grown scroungers with the chance to actually earn some money, cos I can't see £57 going far in this country.

£200-£256 is misleading in the extreme. Unemployment benefits also include council tax benefit, housing benefit (for example, this lady who claims £6,400 a month) along with countless additional benefits like free (to the fat, lazy recipient) gym memberships and cash incentives for losing weight. A huge number are also on disability for 'stress' or back problems that play up once in a while.

Point taken DD, but my point was made to reduce the amount given so these freeloaders realise that the UK benefits system is in no way better than the one they get at home, you might find that a lot of our own benefit scum off their arrses as their cushy little life would fall apart if they were only recieving a quarter of what they were. Plus, if the benefits in those countries are so low, how the hell do they mange to get a family of God knows how many here in the first place?

Interesting. Was looking at going abroad to another EU country for a few months or so lately, and in all the literature about needing a Residency Permit after 6 months, there was nothing about claiming benefits. In fact it said you must have enough cash to live, work, and not be a drain on that states welfare system. Seems reasonable.

So what are the odds that us extending this to other countries won't be returned by other countries to our nationals over there?

It's a one way door, Voltigeur, they can come here and claim, but we can't go there and claim, Europe is for the Europeans, not the British.

And once in the UK system and nearing pension age they no doubt get minimum UK state pension?

Just think about it, Pick fruit for one summer, [aged 64] sign on the dole, sit back and get round a hundred quid a week for the rest of your life ........... probably even going back to your original country ...... It seemed to work for Polish children even if they had not set foot in the UK but a parent had worked.

Rant over but bus fare in hand!
