Net migration at 323,000 prompts EU referendum row

Source: The BBC

In a recent BBC article, they have announced that ”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.”

What’s your view of this?

Do you feel that the government remains committed towards making the average net migration decrease, to the 100,000’s area by the next election in 2020 as promised? How much will the topics of emigration, migration and immigration of EU members and afar, influence the peoples vote upon an EU stay or exit?

  1. It is economically and environmentally unsustainable, regardless of the nationality or ethnicity of the immigrants. Still, they provide a cheap disposable (and tax-credit dependent) labour force; and plenty of tenants on housing benefit for slumlords.
