Bulgaria: British Government Under Fire for Withholding Immigration Report Photo by EPA/BGNES

The British government has come under fire for allegedly withholding a favourable report on the impact of immigration. 

The report was ordered by the government and done by civil servants and was supposed to confirm the claims from an earlier report that every additional 100 new immigrants displace from their jobs 23 Brits. 

The new analysis of the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC), however, turned out to be much less pessimistic and the government considered this as potentially incendiary, according to BBC. 

The new MAC report estimates that the cost to existing British workers of new arrivals is much lower.

Government officials, however, deny the allegations that the report was withheld on purpose and said it is not ready yet and will be published “in due course”.

That bastard Cameron gets recently what he deserves: the "big wave" of 15 million immigrants from Bulgaria and Romania is not coming and he looks like an idiot, the polls say that the Scottish independence referendum might be successful, Hollande shows him the cold shoulder and Merkel does the same in a bit more friendly words regarding the EC reform (that will not come), the economic forecast is everything than favorable, most banks and financial institutions say that in case that UK is leaving the EU they will move most of their operations to another European finance center, the flood in England after the heavy rainfalls is disastrous because of considerable cuts in the state budget reserved for flood prevention and now one of his closest advisors is arrested because of child pornography. Time to get rid of this incompetent obnoxious turd.
