`Will new government policies be good for migrants?’

14th May 2010: The new coalition government in its recently released policy statement has asserted the Conservatives and the Lib-Dem have agreed that there should be an annual limit on the number of non-EU economic migrants admitted into the UK to live and work.

With this, it is clear that Labour’s much hyped ‘points-based’ system for immigrants will go

Lib-Dem election manifesto, illegal immigrants become British citizens, if they speak English, have a clean record and want to live here long-term, too has been left out.

Of course, the new stand of the government is in accordance with the party policies formulated over the years after taking into consideration so many studies and researches.

But we want to know from you whether you think the new government policies will be good for the migrants?

We want your opinion to reach the corridors of power. And that’s why we are asking you to participate in an online “A poser a month” poll. Every week, we will ask you to reply in “yes”, “no”, “maybe” or “I don’t know” to a simple question. We will then tabulate the data and place before you the results of the research.

We will continue with the process, so that voice of people helps the government in formulating its policies. We hope to receive a healthy response from you.

This month’s question is: “Will new goverment policies be good for migrants?”
