Migrationwatch Comment On Today’s Immigration Statistics

The ONS press release headlines record emigration without mentioning record immigration. In fact, their figures also show record foreign immigration of over half a million in 2006 with less than one fifth coming from the new Eastern European members of the EU. British emigration is also a record at 126,000, having doubled since 1997. Commenting, […]

The Observer: Your Letters

In ‘The truth Migration Watch doesn’t want you to know’ (Opinion, last week), Jasper Gerard completely misrepresents our position. We, too, favour integration. Indeed, we regard it as essential to the future harmony of our society. We just don’t believe it is possible at present rates of immigration. The government’s own figures show that foreign […]

Sunday Times: Letters

FITTING TOGETHER: Trevor Phillips stated that "people like Andrew Green at Migrationwatch are saying these new arrivals can’t fit in. I believe that shows contempt for the tolerance of the British people". In fact, I have never said anything of the kind.

Why One Size Does Not Fit All

Eurobabble is the only word to describe yesterday’s speech on immigration by Franco Frattini.

There is just one problem with that. England’s population […]

Latest Immigration Figures ‘not Credible’

Figures out today from the Office of National Statistics regarding the numbers of East Europeans coming to the UK are ‘simply not credible’ says think-tank Migrationwatch. They show, say the ONS, that in the period mid 2005 to mid 2006 there was a fall of 17,000 to 57,000, which amounts to only 1 in 5 […]

Migrationwatch Comment On Green Paper On Housing

The Government’s Green Paper, published on July 23, on the supply of housing is notable for one major omission – it ignores the fact that of the three million homes the Prime Minister says are to be built by 2020, one million will be needed for new immigrants. Even that estimate assumes that immigration will […]
