The latest ONS figures show an increase in net immigration of 109,000 per annum to 318,000.
Today’s government announcement on illegal migration is a smoke screen to mask today’s appalling immigration statistics. In almost every area, net migration, overall UK immigration, EU immigration, non-EU immigration, sham marriages, bogus students, overstayers; the government has failed catastrophically.
Never has the case for an Australian -style points system been clearer - a high population density country like the UK needs migration quality control.
UKIP's positive and ethical migration policy is NOT about pulling up the drawbridge but controlling who comes over it.
