    Post Britain to Sue EU to Stop 'Benefit Tourists' Flooding into Britain

    The Government will take unprecedented legal action against the EU to prevent ‘benefit tourists’ from the Ukraine and north African countries coming to Britain to collect benefits without working.
    Employment minister Chris Grayling said he planned to sue the European Commission to block millions of people who could arrive on UK shores to claim state pensions and benefits.
    He said he believed EU officials were trying to create a system where people from either inside the EU or from countries bordering it, were able to come into Britain and start claiming benefits.
    In a newspaper interview, the minister said the EU had launched a ‘land grab’ and ‘pre-emptive action to stop this’ was now necessary.
    He said: ‘We are concerned about benefit tourism, we want tighter rules. We want the rules changed and they are just not listening
    This is something that is catching up with us very fast. I have decided that we have to take legal action over this because what’s happening step by step is we are being forced into a situation.
    ‘We have got to go to the European Court and argue they don’t have the right to do this.’
    The EU is currently agreeing reciprocal benefit arrangements with other countries.
    Initially, this involved nations such as Switzerland and Norway which weren’t thought to prove too costly for Britain.
    But now ministers have learnt negotiations have begun with other poorer nations beyond the EU’s borders and the ‘point of principle’ must be challenged.
    Mr Grayling fears Britain could be flooded with people coming from poorer countries with much lower benefits and pensions.
    He added:‘In recent times, I don’t think as a department we have sued them before. We have decided to take pre-emptive action to stop this and take them to court.
    ‘We are not going to be rolled over on this, it’s a hugely sensitive issue.’

    In September, it emerged that the EU was threatening Britain with legal action following the refusal to pay some benefits to other European citizens who have not worked or lived here.
    Britain has been given a two month deadline to reverse the decision but will refuse and is braced for court action. If the Commission gets its way. Britain could be hit with an extra £2.5 billion in welfare payments, making the battle to shrink the deficit even harder.
    Mr Grayling said he was sympathetic to the calls from back-bench Conservative MPs for a referendum on Britain’s EU membership and that ‘renegotiation’ of the relationship was now necessary.
    The action is the first sign Conservative ministers are determined to act on David Cameron’s pledge to begin renegotiating Britain’s relationship with Europe.

    and so the red warning lights finally begin to flash..but too little too late.
    “unless they know, mystically, that beneath the concrete lies the earth which has nourished their race for a thousand years and ... that it is their own earth from which their blood is shed and renewed, then they are a lost people, and easy prey for those who have lacked roots for many centuries"

    I wish all EU countries would start protecting themselves in the same way, and start closing their borders. The EU is a monster that tries to eradicate traditional European national identity and culture in Europe, everything that makes our countries unique and shapes us as peoples they want destroyed.

    The current policy is downright suicidal. Europe is intentionally being destroyed demographically, the local ethnicities are being wiped out forever and replaced, and we even have to pay for our own ethnic genocide by being forced to financially support economic opportunists who come here from all over the world.

    Crazy stuff.

    Here is a story broken today

    THESE crooks thought they were running the perfect con after persuading dozens of women to come to Britain to falsely claim benefits.

    But Darina Balogova, 31, her husband Marek Balog, 34, and her brother Jaroslav Bado, 32, were jailed yesterday after scamming an estimated £1.2million.

    The Slovakians convinced women from their home country to live in Britain then ordered them to pose as mums and claim child and working tax benefits in the largest welfare fraud of its kind. Balogova and her family pocketed the proceeds and lived the high life.

    Judge Michael Carroll called the crime “abhorrent”.

    Fraud and error in the welfare system in 2009/2010 cost taxpayers £5.2billion, with the tax credit system accounting for almost £2billion of that total.

    Balogova has not worked a single day since arriving here seven years ago. But she and Balog gambled thousands of their ill-gotten cash in fancy casinos. The trio also went on spending sprees at *jewellers, buying gold and diamonds.

    They ran the racket from a terraced house in a leafy street in the hope that authorities would not get on their trail.

    The fraudsters, from Presov, kept the passports, national insurance cards and birth certificates of the women who had been persuaded to come here from Slovakia.
    'Mums' imported in £1.2million benefits scam by Slovakian gang

    Thanks to being a member of the wonderful EU, Britain can look forward to further enrichment from such migrants...

    The sooner we are out of the EU the better. We traded with our european neighbours before the EU came along and we shall trade with them after it falls. We dont need to pay for it like we are now.
    Give us our country back its ours not some EU beaurocrats.

    It is no surprise that EU is treating the UK over this. Since it part of the civic rights of all those who live in the EU to enjoin whatever benefits the state they live offer. Without any other preconditions. I think they knew from the beginning that it would lead to a total mess. And that is probably what they want in order to propose the solution of letting the EU handle benefits and welfare and the raising of funds for it. It would not surprise me at all that in a few years they will come with something along those lines.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    What's even worse is the way that the European court of justice acts as the interpreter of the law, just as any other supreme court, and discovers praxis in the texts which wasn't thought of at the time of its inception. They can sow together an argument about the freedom of movement and the equality of the individual and decide that every EU "citizen" has the right of access to the member states and their respective wellfare systems, since it's right there in the law, freedom of movement and equal treatment.

    Social benefit payouts in the UK are among the highest in the EU. Why ?
    Because the UK is also amongst the most expensive places to live inside the EU. Immigrants on welfare tourism usually don't see the basic prices, they probably just notice the handouts in absolute numbers and that is:
    UK= High welfare payouts.
