Responding to the migration figures today released by the University of Oxford's Migration Observatory which show that migrant population in England is estimated to have increased by more than half a million in three years UKIP Leader Nigel Farage said:
"Once again UKIP has been proved right. In 2010 people said this wasn't an issue. In 2014 I was told I was all wrong on the increase in the migrant population, and the Deputy Prime Minister even thought he'd beat me in debate over it.

UKIP’s Defence spokesman, Mike Hookem MEP, has today branded David Cameron as “irresponsible” in dismissing the head of the US Army’s concerns over the impact of cuts to the UK’s armed forces.Continue reading...
Mike said, “We have a commitment to our NATO partners to spend at least 2% of GDP on defence. In light of a deteriorating world security situation, we need to stick to this as closely as possible if we are to meet both present and future challenges to UK security. The fact is that due to the Cameron’s cuts, Britain’s armed forces are currently stretched to breaking point. Not to recognise this is simply irresponsible.”
