|Brits leaving the UK
||I was wondering what your view was on the latest figuars just releasted of all the brits packing up and leaving the UK for good.
I know alot of people are fed up with the way this countrys is run and the way the average jo has no rights at all now-a-days. the TAxing is out of this world, and we dont get to see anything back for it. I can see in many years to come, the UK wont be full of brits any more, they will have all moved out.
Anyway just wondered what your thoughts where on this, as im sure it must worry the goverment surely???

Dear Mr Harris
Many thanks for the email.
People leave the UK for a number of reasons – climate, to be near their family, ownership of second homes; taxation may well be one reason.
My Party has made it clear that, while the top priority must be to look after the public finances, we hope to return to our tax cutting agenda when it is prudent to do so.
So far as the figures for people coming into the country are concerned, we believe there should be tighter border controls, and swifter deportation of those who have no entitlement to be here.
Best wishes, George Young
