Nigel Farage: What is UKIP's Policy on Immigration?

The fundamental question that must be raised is: what is really UKIP's Policy on Immigration?

Some in the mass classified UKIP as a Far Right political party something that really puzzles me.

In less than two weeks, we have been assaulted by serious doubts about what is UKIP's real approach on Immigration.

We have heard all kinds of versions:

1) We need to get out of Europe to control our borders.

2) We need a balanced approach to equal the numbers of those coming in and those going out because Britain is full.

3) We need to take in Syrian refugees because it is the humane thing to do. (Something that without proper controls would allow thousands of people closely related to AQaeda to settle down in Britain.

4) I never said that Britain was full.

5) I prefer to have less immigrants even if we are poorer because of it.

6) UKIP does not have a Policy on Immigration.

So, if UKIP does not have a Policy on Immigration, does UKIP have a policy regarding being or not being in the European Union.

If feels a bit like a train that has hit the buffers and has nowhere else to go but backwards.

These are some of the bullet points mentioned on their official website:

  • Only by leaving the EU can we fully regain control of our borders and control migration.
  • Those wishing to permanently settle in the UK must financially support themselves and their dependents for 5 years. This means private health insurance (except emergency medical care), private education and housing.  You pay into the pot before you take out of the pot.
  • Bring in a points based visa system and time limited work permits.
  • Tourists and new migrants to the UK must provide proof of private health insurance cover as a condition of entry to the UK.
