Another immigration facepalm...

This is so dumb: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-24469584

So, if we make it impossible for immigrants to get bank accounts, rent homes and get drivers licences they're just going to leave? No, they're just going to keep cash in a jar, sleep rough and drive without insurance. Worse, we force already vulnerable people out of society and further into the hands of criminal gangs and people traffickers, especially if we force them to be dependant on those people for food and shelter.

This is blatant xenophobic pandering to the fascist UKIP vote, nothing more.

Plus, how do they propose people prove their identity and citizenship for every government service? I'm willing to bet ID cards are going to be forced back onto the table...
