What is the breakdown of that figure. Seems suggested a good percentage is down to foreign students returning after lockdown etc. I haven't looked, but surely the breakdown will either confirm or quell your concerns.
You know what....I really don't know as I haven't had time to go through the figures. It seems high, but I suspect they now include groups like students that weren't included before.

Why? Because you appear to have no real opinion on anything. Apart from thinking it's a good idea to have a frequent dig at the Tories/Farage. For no apparent reason, evidently.

Ok, let's try some more questions. Do you support FoM or not? If it's that bad, would you scrap the points system if you were PM? If so, what would you replace it with?
I have a "Dig" at the Tories because they're in power and have been for the last 12 years and imo lied and screwed us over as a nation while trying to demonise vunerable people, If any other party were the same Id do the same, Also why can't i have a dig at them, I've not voted for them, I don't like their politics and as for Farage, He's a one policy person who nows spends his time with his binoculars down at Dover counting, He like the Tories try to convince they are "Men of the people" or "Anti-Establishment" when in fact they are the epitomy of the establishment. As for the other question, I do not pretend, Unlike you to know all about these things but i do know when i feel something is wrong.

Sorry if its not good enough but the above is my answer. Don't think anyone is waiting.
And there we have it: DB9, the man with no real view on anything, apart from the right is bad.

That's ok. You're not at all alone.

But this sums up the problem to a degree. Take the headline figure, portray it as end of the world style. Check the figures and see if the breakdown quells or confirms you concerns.

Students have always been included in immigration figures.

You can be relaxed about high levels of inward migration and still view the dinghy crossings as an absolute p1ss take DB.
How sustainable do you think it is for the nation to be bringing in a similar number of people to the city of Leeds annually?

Says the man who routinely responds he can’t be arsed when faced with a tricky delivery. Rank hypocrisy.
