The Daily Telegraph on Friday reported that some of its international readers have questioned whether the UK is “doing enough” to stop people from taking advantage of a loophole in the laws which allows foreign visitors to stay in the UK for as long as five years.
In a post on its blog, The Daily Mail, which has been criticised by some for its tabloid approach, said it wanted to “help out” the UK and offered a “thank you” for the support.
Its article prompted a number of comments on the blog, with one user suggesting the Telegraph’s “prudence” had gone too far.
“You may think the UK should not be allowing tourists to stay longer than they need to in order to keep up with the global demand for accommodation,” the user wrote.
“But that is exactly what is happening and it is wrong.
The problem is that the UK Government is not doing enough to stop this.”
The British people need to be encouraged to do more and stop the foolishness of the UK allowing tourists longer than necessary to stay and work in the country,” he added.”
They have a right to stay for five years, not the 10.
“In a follow-up article, The Mail said that while it did not think the loophole was “very good”, the “lack of awareness of the issue is very worrying”.
It also said the UK was “not doing enough” in its “policies and policies around foreigners staying longer than needed to support the economy”.”
A few months ago the government introduced a new immigration policy and the government wants to make sure it is being enforced.””
The UK is not able to control immigration in the way that other countries can and therefore the number of foreigners entering the country is high.”
A few months ago the government introduced a new immigration policy and the government wants to make sure it is being enforced.
“If the policy of letting foreign nationals stay longer, then it is reasonable to think that foreigners will use it to their advantage, for instance by paying rent or buying property.”
It is a policy which the government is keen to try and enforce, but it is not the only option, and we want to see the policy enforced in other ways.
