Denis_Cooper 5pts There seem to be at least three items missing from this article, perhaps you could supply them.1. Any estimate of the reduction in EU immigration due to these changes to benefits.2. Any estimate of the savings to the UK taxpayer due to these changes to benefits.For both of those calculations it would be necessary to take into account whatever knock on effects there may be, for example male immigrants deciding that they might as well bring their wives and children across as well, so transferring the costs for healthcare and education and so forth from the governments of their home countries to the government of the UK.

An explanation of why countries around the world can trade with EU countries without having to agree to the completely free movement of their respective citizens between their respective territories, but that does not apply to trade between the EU countries where there is an allegedly fundamental requirement for unfettered free movement of persons.
