Camer-moron’s promise is in tatters like the rest of his other promises as well. The price of voting in a statist political hack.
Net immigration soars to record high of 330,000 as Cameron’s pledge to cap numbers arriving in UK is left in tatters
Despite giving a ‘no ifs no buts guarantee’ that net immigration would fall on his watch, David Cameron has overseen a huge increase since 2012
- 330,00 more people arrived in the UK than left in the 12 months to March
- Some 636,000 migrants arrived in Britain, with 307,000 leaving the country
- Net migration from the EU has soared by 53,000 to 183,000, ONS said
- Prime Minister gave a ‘no ifs no buts’ pledge that he would slash migration
Net migration into Britain hit a record high last year, official figures revealed this morning.
In the 12 months to March, 330,000 more people arrived in the UK than left – smashing the previous record of 320,000 at the height of the Eastern European immigration boom under Tony Blair.
The revelation is a huge blow to David Cameron who gave a ‘no ifs no buts’ guarantee that he would slash net migration to below 100,000 a year.
Compared to the previous year, net migration has soared by 94,000, with 636,000 migrants moving to Britain and just 307,000 people leaving, the Office for National Statistics said.
