Net migration to UK rises to 260,000 in year to June

The Conservative Party have completely failed to keep their promise to cut migration:

“Net migration to the UK rose to 260,000 in the year to June – an increase of 78,000 on the previous year”.

Net migration peaked at 320,000 in 2005. It fell to a low of 154,000 in the year ending September 2012

Clearly the UK has lots of pull factors for EU migrants in particular at the moment. Think about the consequences of this influx.
