Number Of Immigrants Living In The UK Long-Term SOARS By 20%

Thanks again, Gordon, you cunt.......           
  • Net immigration rises by 33,000 to 196,000 in one year
  • Country has highest population of EU countries  
  • 25% of babies born to foreign mothers 
The number of immigrants choosing to live in the UK long-term soared by more than 20 per cent last year, official figures today show. Net migration increased by 33,000 to 196,000, from 163,000 in 2008, putting increasing pressure on the country's infrastructure. And although four per cent fewer people arrived in the UK last year - 567,000 compared with 590,000 in 2008 - the number leaving fell by 13 per cent, according to the Office for National Statistics. Figures also revealed a quarter of births in the UK last year were to mothers born outside the UK.
The statistics were released on the day it was revealed that England is now the most overcrowded country of the 27 in the European Union
It has more people per square mile than the Low Countries, which has long been the most densely populated region of the continent, MPs have been told.  
Only tiny Malta, an island city state with a population no bigger than that of Bristol, has greater population pressure in Europe.
Today's ONS statistics show a 37 per cent rise in immigrants granted settlement in the UK between June 2009 and June 2010, and the number of visas issued to students increased 35 per cent to more than 362,000.
