Government report confirms ONS has been covering up more than 50% of immigration

We've been saying for some time that the Office of National Statistics' EU immigration figures are wrong and today the British government released a report that confirms it.

The ONS said that net EU immigration last year was 257,000 people. They said that in 2014 it was 223,000 people. Actually, it was more like 474,000 people. That's not slightly out, they under-reported EU immigration by more than half and they did it deliberately.

The true EU immigration figures were known but to cover them up the ONS left out the people who moved here for less than 12 months. Whether they live here for 6 months or 60 years, their children still go to school, they need medical care, they use the roads, etc. They count no matter how long they're living here for.

EU immigration is out of control and the number is increasing year on year. Not only are the number of EU immigrants increasing, the number out of work and claiming benefits is also increasing. While we're in the EU we can't control immigration, the safe option is to vote to leave.
