UK: “Non-EU” Immigrants on Welfare

Of the 650,000 “immigrants” who entered Britain in the first six months of 2016, at least 289,000 came from outside Europe—and only 284,000 from inside the European Union, new data from the U.K.’s Office for National Statistics (ONS) has shown.

The data also showed that the vast majority of “non-EU nationals” are not working, but are living off welfare.


According to the new ONS data, of the “EU nationals” coming to the U.K., Romania was the most common country of last residence, making up 10 percent of all immigrants. Most of these are Gypsies.

The data also showed that coming to work in the U.K. remained the most common reason for long-term immigration, with 311,000 (the highest estimate recorded), compared with 294,000 in the year ended June 2015.

Of this number, 182,000 had a definite job to go to and 130,000 arrived looking for work (a statistically significant increase from 107,000 the previous year).

At the same time, there were 629,000 National Insurance number (NINo) registrations by EU nationals and 195,000 by non-EU nationals in the year ended September 2016.

NINo are the U.K.’s partial equivalent of a U.S. Social Security Number, which means that people applying for a NINo will either be working or intend to seek work.

The ONS data sheet went on to state that employment statistics from the “Labour Force Survey” showed there was an increase of 454,000 in the employed U.K. labor force in July to September 2016, compared with the same quarter for the previous year.

Of this number, only 47 percent can be accounted for by growth in employment for British nationals, 49 percent by growth in employment for EU nationals, with the remaining 4 percent accounted for by non-EU nationals.

These employment figures and NINo registration rates show conclusively that although non-EU immigration is the single largest source of incomers into the U.K., these non-Europeans are overwhelmingly not going into employment once they arrive in Britain.

The ONS data did not say how these non-EU nationals are “earning a living,” but it is obvious that they are going onto welfare in order to survive.


According to figures released earlier by the U.K.’s Department of Welfare and Pensions, the proportion of people who live in low-income households is: 20 percent for whites, 30 percent for Indians and Black Caribbeans, 50 percent for Africans, 60 percent for Pakistanis, and 70 percent for Bangladeshis.

In addition, the ONS figures showed that there were 41,280 asylum applications (including dependents) in the year ended September 2016, the sixth successive annual increase.

This figure has remained almost constant each year since the 2002 high when 103,081 invaders pretending to be asylum seekers arrived in Britain.

Some 4,162 fake refugees were granted humanitarian protection under the “Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme” in the year ended September 2016, with a total of 4,414 having been “resettled” in the U.K. since the scheme began in January 2014.

Finally, some 49,000 British citizens permanently left the U.K. in the first six months of 2016.

  1. If all of the UK’s labour needs – and more – can be met from within the EU, then why is non EU immigration still occurring?

  2. Why is an advanced over crowded country like England letting in 650,000 mostly third world invaders? No western nation needs immigrants for any reason. Especially ones like they are getting now. Europe cannot withstand this assault.

  3. Les we r ruled by muppets they r trying to make us agree with their polices which we will never agree too we want OUT we voted out so much is being hidden from us but if u do ur research it’s there for all too c White feather Tim Fallon what a joke he has the cheek to stand at the centotaph YOU FALLON INSULT OUR NATION

  4. The people who have executive power in Britian are running the country not as if it’s a sovereign nation with a unique identity, but as a corporation, people and nations are commodities. That is ultimately the goal of every EU buercrat…

  5. Off topic, but can anyone give me a link to the Mail story about 463 thousand foreign new public housing tenants in the last ten years?


    Tried the ONS.

  6. Ted Heath (Pro-EU) and Harold Wilson (Pro-Harold Wllson’s Retirement Fund) did not divulge to the nation the outcome of what ‘Joining the Common Market’ would be, they hammered the word TRADE. So before 1979 election, the UK needed an IMF bail out, suffered a Trade Union orchestrated ‘Winter of Discontent’ because it was well known that 3 million unemployed was going to happen, and Labour did not want to be in power when that happened. John Major (the poorest excuse of a PM for the Conservatives) gave away parts of our sovereignty, without any discussion. He was followed by Teflon Tony Blair (most corrupt human being in political life) continued to sell this country out to the unelected fat cats in the hope he would become President of the EU, and opened the doors for all and sundry in 2004, mainly to get more Labour voters, left office in order to enhance his capitalist ideology, and managed to shred his expenses at the same time. Having said that, the people of the UK were expected to welcome all the immigrants, knowing full well that it was common knowledge that there were those from certain countries that would never intergrate let alone look for work. The Christian country I was born and brought up in was demolished by those named above and all their crowd, irrespective of political party. Democracy no longer exists in the UK and hasn’t done so since 1975..

  7. Can anyone confirm or deny that the German army is 60% German born muslims ? . Now the new European Army (((denied byCamoran & Cleg)))will have a huge recruitment pool from the invasion of the past two years.

  8. Why worry, we can further decrease spending on NHS and let more seniors die during the winter, lots of dosh. After all, we are known around the world as Treasure Island. Cannot upset the invaders by denying them what they DEMAND.
