EU Immigrants

Based on a recent survey, it was reported that half of the EU Immigrants who came to the UK since 1997 have left. They have sighted a few factors :

(1) The value of pound have dropped 25% against the Euro;

(2) Better job prospect back home as their country is booming;

(3) Living cost in the UK is more expensive by the day but salary or wages are insufficient to counteract it; and

(4) Being at home is much better than living in a foreign country where you do not have much friends and you do lose out;

All these while the government is banging on the fact that immigrants benefits the local economy but there were independent reports suggesting that immigrants are bad for the economy. Well, we do see that many immigrants have left. Now, can they make anymore complains?
