Hung Parliament: both Brown and Cameron woo Lib Dems

Conservative leader David Cameron has reached out to the Liberal Democrats in an effort to form a government – after yesterday’s UK general election resulted in the first hung parliament since 1974.

UK to have a hung parliament – Liberals could influence immigration policy

With most seats declared in the UK General Election, it looks certain that the leading party, David Cameron’s Conservatives, will not win enough seats to gain an overall majority and form a government.

There is a business case for UK amnesty, says London Parliamentary candidate

Gene Alcantara, Independent Parliamentary Candidate for Hampstead and Kilburn, believes there is a real business case for a form of amnesty or regularisation programme for the estimated 750,000 illegal immigrants currently in the UK.

Conservative policy on immigration – what can we expect from the election favourites?

Although some of the polls are predicting an outright overall majority, when the British people cast their vote on 6 May, it is probably David Cameron’s Conservative party which will form the next Government. So what can we expect from David Cameron on immigration?

Parties clash over immigration in UK Election battle

Immigration continues to play a key role in the UK election debate as the main parties try to ‘out tough’ each other to win votes. But many of the services which we take for granted would grind to a halt without migrant workers.

Sorting out the UK immigration issues

The Times reports the economic hot topics in the general election have been the budget deficit and immigration. What are the economics of immigration? Britain has large inflows and outflows of people each year, and inflows have exceeded those leaving for some time. Thus the population is rising, with net immigration, rather than births and deaths, being the reason. This looks set to continue.

    I am student in uk. Sometime in january this year(2010) My college issued me with a Visa letter to enable me extend My ‘Leave to Remain’ under the new immigration rules. On the Visa letter, the College made a mistake by putting a phrase that ‘ a place has been reserved’ me while i was actually in the college.

    The ukba refused my application basing their on the above phrase. The ukba sent my application back with a refusal letter together with an appeal forms. I sent back the appeal forms dully completed together with a freshly issued Visa letter. The forms were received by the ukba on the 6th April but since then i have not heard from ukba.

    When i called the tribunal body they said they have not received my appeal forms. I called ukba they and they said i should check with Tribunal body. What should i do. This is a very staight forward and simple issue to resolve but it appears the ukba is ford of blowing minor issues out of proportion. And i think people should try not to be narrow minded and try to think further.
    I was meant to travel back home to see my Family but could not because of this ‘red tape’. Do i have to hire a Solicitor to take up the matter. Why should i be made to incur legal cost because of a very minor issue. This a developed country and those people in position should behave as such. I cauld some how understand if i was in the so called ‘third world’.
    Suppose i was to make an urgent travel?
    Why should a very simple and a very staight forward issue go for hearing? Do people see the waste of ressources and time.

    I think it’s the high time people behave likr ‘right thinking’ human beings.
