Migration Statistics - Feb 2015

More pathetic behaviour from the coalition. They STILL have not dealt with the problem.

Hopefully these figures will encourage a lot more people to vote UKIP.

What happened to CMDs tens of thousands then?

I wonder how UK industry and the CBI managed to cope in the years before we added 300,000 workers to the labour pool every year?

Scales tipped even further in capitals favour vs labour.

This must be what the Tories meant when they said they were going to rebalance the economy.

I see Osborne dressing this up as a success story for the country. Some friends were talking the other day about how well the Conservatives have done. They seemed shocked with some of the figures I mentioned. I am genuinely terrified that these clowns will get in again.

Nope. It's deliberate, if the restricted immigration then the country would be in a statistical recession.

If net migrarion continues with expected Eurozone weakness relative to UK I am unclear where the BOE expected wage growth comes from?

Productivity growth or the measurement of it also looks weak.

Downing Street denied that the Jimmy Savile reports were being published today to distract attention from the immigration figures. As Rowena Mason reports, when the prime minister’s spokeswoman was asked this if this was the case at the lobby briefing, she replied: “It’s clear that both issues are getting prominent coverage.”

Are UKIP going to build 1m new houses or confiscate passports for the clever emigrants or something?

No they are going to stop paying people to come here - that should make housing less expensive

Extra houses for what, the masses of unemployed that we have and growing, more and more people are working part time due to not being able to get jobs..

I consider myself left-leaning politically, and I've never been able to understand why Labour (or any other party on the left) hasn't been strongly against the sort of immigration we are seeing now. Despite what the Mail would have you believe, high immigration overwhelmingly favours the rich in this country at the expense of the working poor; their jobs are much less affected by the competition and wages for the the average worker are suppressed, not to mention the competition for other resources such as the NHS has more effect on the poor as well.

Also the migration figures are even worse than they look - net British migration is -55k, overwhelming made up of more educated Brits to boot. So that's over 350k new non-Brits in a year.

But where will the Friends of Boris Johnson find a twenty-four hour plumber without them? The last English chap demanded a fortune for even the simplest of repairs...

The economy must expand year upon year...since all the politicians are just corrupt college boys who fill a managerial position for a few years now, they dont care.

Come to think of it, since I am part of those statistics, I dont care.

Net long-term migration to the UK was estimated to be 298,000 in the year ending September 2014.

Immigration is a little above the ten year range. Emigration is at the bottom of the ten year range.

So net migration is almost as much about the lack of emigration as it is about the scale of immigration.

I wonder why emigration is running at such a low level? Surprising when a frequent comment by posters on this forum is that they're just about to pack their bags and go.

Totally agree. But where you might be left leaning, New labour are not.

Blue labour had to ditch being for the common man and instead favour the ideology of the forever HPI loving bourgeoisie Thatcherite.

What was it Blair said "we are all middle class now" ( that our homes earn more than us)

Anyway I'm sure a major reason for throwing open the doors was due to the state pension ponzi and NHS health care costs blowing public spending budgets into pieces when the grey army start retiring, which is now.

The bar has been set much higher now in Australia, Canada and North America. *9 out of 10 people who emigrated to these places in the last fifteen years just wouldn't make the grade. The 1 in 10 (bright as fook) are probably doing alright where they are.

I've seen some real pond life back from my school days succeed in getting to Australia. One is an estate agent and another a recruitment consultant. Go figure.

No they no longer pack their bags and go....they are keeping a foot in two camps, just like many immigrants do.......hedging their bets. ;)

Yep. I wouldn't qualify to move to Canada any more. With the number of people applying, they can afford to raise the bar, and, with the price of oil sinking, they don't want immigrants taking jobs Canadians would do. And, being an actual sovereign nation, they can decide who they want to let in, unlike the UK.

Needless to say the net migration figure and the immigration figure are both now the highest ever under the Conservative/Libdem coalition (bar one NuLabour net migration quarter in 2005) - the very opposite of what was "promised".

So this administrative branch of the LibLabCon union is leaving with a final "up yours" dose of extra congestion for Britain.

From the above chart it's clear how emigration out of the UK shot up after the economic collapse but it's also (apparently) been relatively low since the middle of 2012. It can't be because people actually believe the recovery theme.
