Brexit Teaching the UK that it Needs Immigrants
What was the reason behind the majority of inhabitants of the United Kingdom voting to leave the European Union?
For many, Brexit was all about getting back the universality of the house of senate. For others, it was about running away from a single market. For some other sectors also, it was an opportunity to treat George Osborne and David Cameron in the same harsh manner they had dealt with the UK public.
But above all of the reasons above, is the desire to greatly drop the level of migration into the country.
For many years, the European Union provided a platform for migrants as the government of the United Kingdom continuously failed to make the best of its chance to reduce greatly the effect of migration down to just a few thousands of persons. The unhindered movement of individuals possibly made this goal impossible at the time, as migration from countries outside the European Union outnumbered those from the continent itself. When then prime minister, David Cameron, was compelled to debate that the repercussion of leaving the European Union would be too great to bear in the long run, the mind of the public had already been made up.
Although the voters of Brexit promised to have the migration of persons under control, it was cautious in its bid to set a target.
As a lot of top officials already knew, dropping the total migration figure to just a few thousand annually would cost the country a lot more than she bargained for, as migrants contribute around £7bn annually in fiscal funds.
A study showed that with the migration down to near zero, the debt of the public sector would increase to around 14% of the total gross domestic product by the year 2062/2063, while with the increased total migration the debt would drop to around 73% of the GDP. For the United Kingdom, migration has since contributed a lot to its economic development as can be evidenced with its poor indigenous productivity and below par manufacturing sector. Those who were confident during the poll of their want to drop the number of migrants have been forced to rephrase their comments.
During an interview with the secretary of Brexit, he said:
“I cannot fathom that the laws will be anything that won’t favor the development of the country in the long run, and as such sometimes we would more migrants, and other times we would need fewer migrants.”
