LETTERS: Services are what people care about

When will our political masters get it? Are they ever going to understand the concerns of the British people about the mass immigration into this country over recent years?

While reading a popular newspaper today, the Tory minister Anna Soubry has criticised David Cameron about his latest plan to announce new restrictions on benefit claims by immigrants

arriving without prospects of work.

The main reason people are so upset about the numbers arriving here is – get this – it’s the public institutions!

It’s the overcrowding in the hospitals, in the schools, on the roads, at the GPs surgeries, the shortage of housing, do I need to go on?

I always thought these people were intelligent. Why can’t, or won’t, they grasp what all the rest of us know?
