A tougher test is to be introduced for migrants looking to claim benefits amid fears of an influx of Romanians and Bulgarians.



Migrants who cannot speak English well enough to get a job face being denied benefits under a new tougher test, the Work and Pensions Secretary has said.

The upgraded test for migrants who want to claim income-related benefits will be rolled out across Jobcentres this week.

Those applying will have to answer more individually tailored questions, provide more detailed answers and submit more evidence before they can claim.

For the first time migrants will be quizzed about whether their English language skills will be a barrier to them finding employment and about what efforts they had made to find work before coming to the UK.

Officials will have 200 questions to choose from when assessing claimants - 100 more than previously.

Iain Duncan Smith said: "It is vitally important that we have strict rules in place to protect the integrity of our benefits system.

"The British public are rightly concerned that migrants should contribute to this country and not be drawn here by the attractiveness of our benefits system.

"And we are taking action to ensure that that is the case.

To be perfectly honest, I personally would have expected this to have been a requirement a long time ago. I hate IDS and all he stands for, and see that this is him trying to get a few brownie points, as his armed guards want Christmas Day off :villagers: :uzi: :uzi:

makes perfect sense to me, if I went to live in France I'd expect to have to learn French!

It is interesting though, how we are told english people are lazy, useless, good for-nothings, which is why so many East Europeans have to be employed. And now it seems speaking english is more important. Truth is them above hate everybody, and are able to come up with stories why each group of people should be suppressed.
Truth is nothing is going to be done about immigration/emigration because the agenda is to disenfranchise people from the ground they live on. So they make living in one place so bad people have to move, then disrupt another area with those people.

We notice it's for claiming benefits. Given people will come from somewhere even more fucked than here and quite understandably will put up with all kinds of bullshit employment because they just want to get by like everyone else,;that's great because they set a great example to the 'lazy' Brits they should slave all day for shit money and be grateful for it. Plenty of people already do work here who can't speak English with any kind of competency. You don't need English to perform the sort of menial tasks most of these guys will be performing. But if you lose your bullshit job or don't get one sharpish, then fuck off.

And if the as yet insufficiently enslaved Brits are not happy about it, blame the immigrants themselves. So you can then get 'tough on immigration' by giving foreigners some more hoops to jump through. It's an automatic win.

Why do you need to speak English to claim benefits? Many English people struggle to negotiate the fucking forms so they've no chance anyway. You'd think they'd let them sign on so the jobcentre staff can easily trip them up week one and enhance their sanctions targets score.
"The British public are rightly concerned that migrants should contribute to this country and not be drawn here by the attractiveness of our benefits system.

My God. How does he keep a straight face? Our benefits system is currently about as "attractive" as the prospect of rimming Thatcher's corpse. From the man who boasted he could live on £53 a week, bottled it when 500,000 people called his bluff and instead claimed a £40 breakfast on expenses.
We apparently can't afford something over a billion in benefits, but we can afford 35 billion worth of tax dodging by the rich.
It beggars belief how these clowns get away with coming out with the bullshit they do.

Chuck , it is entirely meaningless words, like the crack down on the numbers of imigrants allowed into the country, It was announced with great hoo har, and then quietly dropped.
Social security is not about looking after people, but keeping them quiet. It is set at a level of manageable displeasure. Should people star making a fuss they will get more, and if the government feel they can get away with paying less they will, and if they can get away with blaming all the money they take from us and give to the rich on a group of us or people they import they will.

I agree Jon. And the thing is it's contingent on the fuss being made to sufficient proportions. The delusion persists that politicians are in some way concerned with the public interest or at least that they won't totally shaft you unless you persistently fight to stop that happening. Or that some noble knight on a shining charger will somehow ride in and save the day without you having to get off your sofa. Some crazy people even believe voting Labour somehow means shit. There is currently a reliance on those actually being beaten with the shitty stick being too dazed and weak to do a great deal while those suffering only from a faint whiff of excrement are either too apathetic or buying all that bullshit about how poverty is due to people's personal failings. There is no cast iron law as to where it stops. Things will get as bad as we let them.

If you look at a graph of the potential threat to the British ruling class, and place it on a graph of how much wealth gets to the average British person and you find an exact fit.
French Revolution average people get better off.
Waterloo Britain in dominant position mass unemployment.
1920/30s no threat and people are poor
50s/60s cold war and wealth
Berlin wall falls; living standards start to drop.
