The truth is that our borders are porous and the political class like it that way. Here is a little sunlight falling on the dark reality of immigration figured….
“Official UK migration figures are “little better than a best guess”, a group of influential MPs has said. The Public Administration Committee said the statistics were “not fit for purpose” and did not accurately assess how many non-UK residents were entering and leaving the country. The MPs recommended finding new ways to gather migration information.”
And in the meantime…???? Since we don’t know who comes in, or who goes out, with ANY degree of accuracy, we should just admit that we have no effective borders. Remarkable given we are an island.
