Is this another storm in a teacup?
This Blog has already published information from another blogger, showing that both British people are the EU’s biggest beneficiaries of the right to settle anywhere in the EU and migrants that come here from our European neighbours pay far more in tax than they take in services and benefits so they are a net benefit to our society.
There’s a question about the amount of space available in the UK, perhaps – but there are arguments to counter claims that we are overcrowded.
So this is a pointless argument. Isn’t it?
New figures showing net migration to the UK remains near record levels have sparked a row between the two sides in the EU referendum debate.
The difference between the number of people leaving and arriving was 323,000 in the year to September.
David Cameron said the figure was “still too high” but the government was taking action to bring it down.
UKIP leader Nigel Farage says the only way to get immigration under control is to leave the EU in June’s referendum.
