  • UK Population Growth Out Of Control

    The OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) reported that almost 1 in 10 of the UK population is born overseas.

    This is being driven by record levels of immigration, most of it from outside the EU, which government is supposed to have control of.

Net immigration over the last 20 years has been 3.8 million from outside the EU and 1.4 million from the EU (that's over five cities the size of Birmingham).
