A welcome ‘Reality Check’ in the migrant debate

In the lead up to the 1st January changes for Romanian and Bulgarian workers, we have seen a range of politicians and media spouting a load of nonsense about the possible impacts, and some vile attempts by reactionary right wing groups to incite hatred against these workers.

In the face of that, the South West TUC has produced a new guide – “Truth, Lies and Migrants” which exposes many of the myths and looks at the reality.

The North East of England has a fraction of the number of migrants coming to this country of the South West, so it really is safe to say that if there isn’t a problem there then there certainly isn’t one here, despite what the hate mongers try and tell you.

The guide is highly recommended reading and can be found at the link below:
