U.K. Immigration Reaches Record Level

Now you know why Mohammed is the most popular boys name in England and Wales.

This is want the Brit's got in return for allowing them into the country.


LONDON—Immigration flows to the U.K. reached a record level during the year ended in March, amid a surge in new arrivals from other European countries as well as from further afield. 

The number of people arriving in Britain exceeded the number leaving by 330,000 for the 12 months through March, according to official data released Thursday. The majority of those arriving came to work or study.

The figures come at a time of heightened unease over immigration in Britain and the wider European Union, which is struggling to cope with one of the largest waves of migration in decades. Hundreds of thousands of people have fled conflict in countries, such as Iraq and Syria, to seek refuge in Europe, and thousands more have arrived from the Middle East, Africa and further afield seeking work and a better life.

A "better life" translates into destroying the lives of the people who live in the European countries they immigrate to. The guise is migration... the goal is colonization.

The U.K. has seen an increase in the numbers of those seeking asylum. The figures released Thursday showed a 10% increase in the number of asylum applications for the year ended in June to 25,771. Still, that level remains well below the peak Britain saw in 2002 of more than 80,000.

The latest figures show a large increase in net migration by other EU citizens to the U.K., up 53,000 to 183,000 for the year ended in March.

Those figures are likely to fan debate in Britain about its continued membership of the EU.

U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron <> has made immigration a central part of a pledge to reshape the U.K.’s ties with the EU. He and his governing Conservative Party were elected for a second term in office in May on a platform that included a promise to renegotiate Britain’s relationship with the EU and hold a referendum by the end of 2017 on whether the U.K. should exit.

The prime minister has said he wants Britain to stay in the EU, the largest market for British goods and services, but only under new terms. Among his demands is limiting the numbers of European citizens moving to Britain, but that has prompted some in Europe to warn Mr. Cameron that the principle of free movement of people and labor within the EU is nonnegotiable.

Mr. Cameron has long promised to reduce migration flows to the U.K. to below 100,000, a pledge he has acknowledged he has failed to meet.
