Immigration

In the light of the Conservatives pushing immigration up the agenda, this is worth reading.

People were asked, "How many East European immigrants to the UK last year are on benefits?" The public though "between 50,000 and 70,000" - the true figure is just 23. A majority of those surveyed thought that the number of asylum seekers coming to Britain over the last 2 years had doubled. The truth is it has actually fallen by 65%.
