Net migration from Eastern Europe to Britain slows to a trickle after Brexit

Post by Thorin on Thu May 25, 2017 3:20 pm

Net migration from Eastern Europe has slowed to a trickle with as few as 5,000 people arriving in the UK from the countries last year. Official figures show that net immigration from the eight eastern European countries that joined the European Union after 2004 was at a record low in 2016. Overall net migration to the UK in 2016 was estimated to be 248,000, the lowest level for almost three years, and a drop of 25 per cent on 2015.

However the total is still far more than the target set by Theresa May’s government, to bring net migration down to below 100,000 a year.

Do you have evidence that any are Nicko from Eastern Europe?

Or why they would need to?

1, I don't have evidence that they do, but have you evidence that they don't?
2, they come for better wages and living standards, witch they have been doing for years.

Well we have many Eastern Europeans and now many are leaving, when they still can come here.

Why would they come in under he radar, when it would go against them?
