    Migration figures: Record number of EU citizens emigrate from UK.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 16 Jul 2018, 11:56 am

    The number of EU citizens who emigrated from the UK last year is the highest on record, the Office for National Statistics has said.

    A total of 139,000 left the country in 2017. The only other year when the EU emigration figures came close was in 2008, when the figure was 134,000.

    Net long-term migration to the UK from the EU was 101,000 last year, the lowest estimate in five years.

    The ONS data is for the first full calendar year since the Brexit vote.

    The Brexit problems are certainly creating instability with the normal emigration and immigration movement to and from the EU.

    What will happen to this movement after Brexit is complete is anybody's guess.

    Of course the immigration figures will be skewed while the Brexit negotiations are going on and that is another reason why it should be sorted out one way or another ASAP.

    I was reading yesterday about soft fruit farmers having to let their fruit rot in the fields as they cannot get enough pickers to do the job.

    This job has historically been done by Eastern European people, but they are just not coming any more.

    We in Scotland know how valuable the Eastern European workers are to our economy and that is one god reason for staying in the EU. After all that is what WE voted for in the referendum.

    Yes, the majority of scots that took part in the referendum voted to stay in.

    Strangely, they seem to need as many immigrants as they can get to help with their economy.

    Maybe the ones not wanted in the South could move up North with a bit of government help.

    That is actually a very good idea Angie, as I am sure that we could employ many more immigrants in Scotland than we do at present.

    The great trouble with much of the work that immigrants do in Scotland is that it is seasonal work and there is just not as much work available at that level during our winters.

    I think the Government is shooting itself in the foot by not addressing the matter of immigrant workers properly.

    I have new neighbours; a very nice young Polish family. Hard working folks.

    They certainly are hard working folks, and that is not just the Poles.

    For a long time the Eastern European immigrants have been happy to do many jobs that the Brits considered to be demeaning.

    The blind hatred for immigrants was behind the majority wanting to stop them coming.
