Immigration could be even higher than official figures show – because migrants arriving at night aren’t being counted

Post by Tommy Monk on Tue Apr 11, 2017 6:19 pm

Currently, official migration statistics are based on random samples of passengers arriving into Britain between 6am and 10pm.

This sample is then ‘weighted’ to try and give a representative figure for the entire day.

But the ONS yesterday revealed it would run new checks outside of the regular hours to see if it was missing high numbers of students – particularly during the summer.

Where I live we have had a sudden influx of hundreds of Chinese. Like coach loads everywhere. They just popped up over a few weeks.

Suspect

Your guvm'nt probably sold Britain to China when nobody was looking...

Can't trust those shifty Tories as far as you could throw them..
They'd sell their own grandmothers for a quick buck  !
