Truths and Myths about Asylum Seekers

Fact Finding Mission

Asylum seekers are NOT entitled to most UK benefits and they are NOT allowed to work in the United Kingdom until their asylum claim is accepted. If lucky, they might get £36.62 a week provided by the UKBA.

We don’t like slogans and misinformation. We like facts and we can only start moving forward if we learn to live with facts rather than myths.

We do need to start separating the grain from the straw. Otherwise, statements based on myths can only damage our reputation as an organisation.

Uncontrolled immigration is a serious issue and most political organisations do not deny that it is a serious issue, but let's talk with knowledge of the facts instead of inventing things as we go along.

Every time people get carried away and repeat inexactitudes based on ignorance, the reputation of the political organisation is damaged.

Immigration is a very complex issue. We might never be able to get all the facts but at least let's make an effort to find out what is really going on without demonising anybody.
