The country is bankrupt , yet we continue to attract an endless tide of immigrants , by paying them our pvergenerous benefits , from the moment they step onto British soil. The recently-revealed payment of housing benefit ot £2000 a week to an immigrant in Kensington , was only the most outstanding example of a preposterous system. Citizens from abroad should make at least some contribution to the country's finances before they can enjoy its benefits. Furthermore, if their dependents live in another country , they should claim benefits there.
No immigrant , whether from the EU or not , should be able to claimBenefits including Legal Aid , untilhe or she has been resident in Great britain for at least two years. No benefits should ever be paid for family members not resident in Great Britain.
