And that's just who were counted we can but guess to the true figure , the Office for National Statistics has said that in 2014 13% of people living in the UK were born abroad.
With the influx into Europe of tens of thousands of economic migrants the figure will no doubt rise year on year for the foreseeable future , this small island and the services it provides for it's citizens are already being stretched to breaking point yet the cuts being implemented by the government will only serve to exasperate the situation.


Immigration Minister James Brokenshire said it was "deeply disappointing".
It is the fifth consecutive quarterly rise in the net migration figure, which the ONS says is caused by an increase in the number of EU citizens migrating to the UK.
Net migration of EU citizens was 183,000, up 53,000 from the year end to March 2014.
The number of those arriving from countries outside the EU was still larger, with net migration measured at 196,000. But the year-on-year increase was smaller at 39,000.

So glad the Tories have control of the situation.

This is a topic that I can see there's no end to - I certainly don't have any answers as to how to resolve the situation other than rather draconian methodology.

Lot's of feeling in this thread too:

Why are you pointing at the Tories? The high figures are from people who are from other EU countries - without leaving the EU then no political party would be able to kick people from other EU countries out or resist their entry..... blaming the Tories for that isn't really the answer. Sorry, not sticking up for them for any other reason than this is an EU wide issue around free movement, not specific to one political party (unless you mean UKIP).

I was against the Channel Tunnel when they started building it , the way I see it it turned us from an island into a promontory of Europe.
The channel served us well through the centuries but now has be undermined ... literally.

This video is from back in March 2015.

Looks like David Cameron is saying that "immigration from outside the EU is down", but "immigration from inside, is up" and then he blames the opposition for making the benefits system so appealing.

Miliband hammers away at "broken promises."

I have a question.

Is "immigration" too vague a term. Does immigration = non-European? What is the indigenous birthrate in the UK anyway.

Is there stats on historical averages and how this number is any different comparatively? Because if not, it doesnt mean anything out of context.

Even if it shows a large surge, it still only tells have the story.

Because since 2010 David Cameron has pledged to reduce immigration , immigration into this country is now higher than when he took office.
You can't slash and burn department budgets and expect them to perform as they did before , the border agency is no different , Cameron thinks all he need do is make tough sounding statements and all will be well but the figures say different.
It has happened on his watch so I blame his government.

Have you not worked it out yet?

This is a thing all controlling parties in government have done for years and years. I think they do it to make the economy bigger and it sure helps the real estate market.

I am glad we are in Europe. If we can take it then migration is fine by me.

It still surprises me why they want to come to a country filled with Bigots, Racists and Fascists in the firsts place.

One of the issues that is never discussed or even thought of in these threads is the effect it has the country they are fleeing. I don't mean the immediate effect but the long term effect. The first ones who leave are the ones who have the means to leave. This leaves the ones who cannot get out and they are usually made up of the most disadvantaged, uneducated poor people. If and when they begin to rebuild who is going to undertake this task as the brain drain to the west now includes doctors, tradesmen, businessmen, etc.
This leads me to another point. We in the western world are putting a lot more into the welfare of refugees than we are putting into our indigenous populations. This is dangerous because we face the same problem in the future if they all decide to go home and rebuild. This is a very likely situation because if another crash comes as expected then they will be in the same boat as us and it will become more financially viable to go home.

Immigration has only been a positive thing for me, but then I don't really live in an area with a lot of immigrants. I'm not too fussed the gene pool needs expanding around here. Too many inbreds


If you know what I mean

without leaving the EU



Leaving The EU would send our employment rights through the floor.

We would be working under " Dickensian " conditions.

Immigration to this country has risen year on year , this is the largest rise since records have been kept.
If the figures only tell half the story you need to live in this country to see the other half of the story , some Brits are beginning to feel like foreigners in their own country and I feel there is an anger ready to boil over here.
