Reader’s Comment of the Day: Official net migration stats tell only half the story


In response to, “Nick Wood: Miliband’s duplicity over immigration is transparent”, realfish wrote:

Miliband is the man who famously forgot’ about the deficit when he delivered his keynote conference speech…Let’s not forget that he also ‘forgot’ to mention immigration (perhaps he’d read and  taken notice of the recommendations of that leaked Labour strategy document).

But that ‘bewildering speed’ of change is ignored, dismissed, misrepresented by the other conspiracy; that of presenting the pace of immigration as ‘net migration’. The social and ethnic make-up of cities, towns and suburbs has changed at a pace twice as fast as that our politicians and the BBC would like you to believe.
