Overpopulation: Labour Gave British Citizenship to 203,865 People Last YearLooking at the latest figures from the Office of National Statistics (ONS), immigration for last year alone has now reached half a million. So much for Labour’s electioneering-inspired claim that it is being reduced.
The point is that we must not let the people forget that former Labour adviser Andrew Leather has revealed what the BNP always suspected. The Labour Government in 2001 decided to purposely open up Britain’s borders as a “driving political purpose”.
That purpose, he admitted, was that mass immigration was the way the Government was going to make Britain “truly multicultural”. The grateful immigrants would also vote overwhelmingly for Labour, thus keeping them in power.
Neither must we forget that at this election the “multiracial Tory Party” is only committed to “bringing in more controls over immigration”, The Lib Dems seem happy with the status quo.
UKIP has supported a view put forward by some individual Tories that we should allow into the country the same number of people that depart these shores. With complete disregard for the higher birth rate among the immigrant population – and Muslims in particular – this still means that the indigenous Britons will become a minority within 30 years.
However, back to the latest immigration figures. The ONS figures show that in 2009 203,865 people were granted British citizenship, which was 58 per cent more than the previous year.
Additionally, more than 190,000 were given the right to settle.
Also, the non-EU “student” visa numbers again increased to a total of 250,000. It has been widely reported in the media, including by David Metcalf, chairman of the Migration Advisory Committee, that the student visa system is frequently abused, with up to 600 lower tier colleges either offering “Mickey Mouse” degrees or none at all. Apart from the one in eight “students” who were completely bogus, the Government has allowed those who have gained their degrees to stay on in employment.
Labour has repeatedly told us that many East European workers are now going home. An investigative report by Tom Whitehead in the Daily Telegraph (17/02/10) said, however, that officials in some towns and cities insist migrants are still arriving. This is certainly the case in Boston, Lincs, Peterborough and Slough, which have all seen a large recent influx of migrants.
Officials in Boston claim there are 75,000 people living in the town, compared with an official estimate of 62,000; Peterborough’s officials say they have 184,000 people, not 164,000; and officials in Slough claim it has up to 140,000 people, rather than the official 124,000.
Carol Clare, head of Boston’s Park Community primary school, said about half her pupils were from overseas and this would rise to 60 per cent.
