The proposals on new immigration rules being made by the Migration Advisory Committee are partial, partisan, wrongheaded and almost racist, claim UKIP."Trumpeting a possible cut of 5,000 skilled non EU workers is an insult to our intelligence," said Nigel Farage, the party's leader.
"When we suggested that we introduce a points-based visa scheme a few years ago we were denounced as racist", he said.
"Now the government have introduced the system they have of course got it wrong.
"Discriminating against non-EU skilled migrants is crazy. This includes Australia, New Zealand, India – where does the NHS think it is going to get it doctors from? – and America among others. Instead we must accept those from across the continent of Europe.
"If the Government was serious about dealing with the immigration issue facing this country we would not be cracking down on skilled workers who largely come from our cultural and real allies, both in the old dominions and across the world, but on the hundreds of thousands of unskilled immigrants from EU countries as well.
"It is no surprise that one of the results of these plans would be to cut down on highly-skilled coloured immigration. High skill jobs create jobs, whereas low and non-skilled migrants are the problem which due to our abdication over immigration policy to the European Union we are unable to deal with."

In the UK as well as the world, we live in interesting times. The global economy is in tatters, there is war all over the place and not content with killing and maiming each other, we're also destroying the environment we live in. In the UK we have a failing government and one could go far enough to say a failing political system. There is a lot going on that makes the blood boil. News Rage is a state of angry mind coupled with the actual venting of that anger which manifests itself in the publication of interesting and hopefully entertaining but highly critical articles about something that has been reported in the news within the last 24 hours.
