UK Prime Minister Tells Citizens of European Union Countries: Don't Come to Britain if You Don't Have a Job!

MIGRANTS from the European Union hoping to come to Britain could be banned from doing so unless they have a job under new considerations proposed by Theresa May.

The Prime Minister is looking to bolster the work permit system to ensure EU migrants cannot come to British soil unless they are in some form of employment.

It comes as Mrs May looks to hit back at critics who blasted her for appearing to backtrack on plans to implement an Australian-style points-based immigration system.

But the Premier, speaking at the conclusion of the G20 Summit in China, was forced to concede she is likely to only get “some” or an “element” of control over the free movement of EU migrants into Britain.

The Prime Minister said she will instead balance controls on immigration with getting the "best deal possible for trade in goods and services with the EU".

She added: "What the British people voted for on the 23rd of June was to bring some control into the movement of people from the European Union to the UK. A points-based system does not give you that control."

Mrs May’s acknowledgement has concerned former Ukip leader Nigel Farage, who says he is “worried” by her remarks.

Mr Farage said: “The people were clear in wanting a points-based immigration system, which is why so many went out and voted to leave the European Union. Any watering down from that will lead to real anger.”

The promise to move towards a points-based immigration system was a central pillar of the Leave campaign and Tory Brexit-backing MPs are angry about Mrs May’s “back-sliding”.

Mrs May refused to commit to other key pledges from the EU referendum campaign, including ending Britain's EU contributions and using the money give the NHS an extra £100million a week.

She said: "In terms of immigration numbers as Home Secretary we did start putting the numbers down. They have subsequently risen.

"What we will not have an ability to do is when we come out of the EU have some control on the movement of people coming from the EU into the UK."

Yesterday Britain sent a warship, HMS Diamond, to join an EU fleet committed to preventing migrants from entering European territory.

With the migrant crisis growing, there is growing pressure on Mrs May to invoke Article 50 and commit to pre-Brexit freedom of movement pledges.
