So Tories are supporting Labour's point based system.

Only new thing they want to bring the cap on non-EU migrants.

TBH, Labour is still immigrants friendly.

At least we have a good vision of what Labour will do for immigrations.

Tories can suddenly say HSMP/ILR holders no longer eligible for free NHS/schools etc.

I would say all parties will have to limit immigration, this island is just too small and too desirable, rightly or wrongly as a destination for immigrants.

Either that or a HUGE amount will need to be invested in infrastructure to support a 100m population in the next 30 years...

As per news in Daily Mail today, Tories aim to allow only 50,000 migrants to settle in UK each year!

So that means not all people qualified for ILR will be able to settle.

Think you'll find this is for new applications outside of the UK.
The Liberals intend to limit the areas geographically in the UK that future immigrants entering on Tier 2 will be able to work.

Do these 50,000 include EU migrants?

If so I wonder how would they work out number of EU migrants settling in? Don't think many EU folks bother applying for Permanent Residence card as it's just a confirmation of their status. Their non-EU family members will certainly apply.

Nah, EU folks have complete freedom of movement - we are all EU citizens. Except some countries have raised employment restrictions ie UK with Bulgarians and Romanians.

They are a bunch of clowns and their planned national insurance rise is going to cost a great many jobs and will no doubt fold many small companies .

Brown and his gang are clueless . The damage they have done will not be fixed instantly though , i think it will take 10 years or so (that is if Conservatives win the election) . If Labour get 4 more years i really do fear for the future .
Conversely, the public spending cuts that are advocated by the Conservatives could do further damage to the fragile economy and affect public services.

Leading economists have come out in support of Brown's economic policies.

If you have ILR, you're already settled. That's what I understand from that stamp in my passport anyway.
