1.2 million migrants are set to enter Britain over the next 10 years if we don’t leave the EU, that’s according to a new study by Migration Watch.

If free movement rules continue to apply to Britain, net migration will soar to around 125,000-a-year in the medium term, and Migration Watch estimates the population will rise by 10 million in the next 20 years.
The report also paints a bleak outlook for the long term future if Britain stays under EU control, saying: “In effect, a failure to control EU immigration would result in the ONS high migration scenario under which the population rises at half a million each year; 75% of that increase would be the result of the direct and indirect effects of immigration.”
That’s the equivalent of a city the size of Birmingham landing on our shores every two years.
Philip Hollobone MP, who asked Boris if the EU could “whistle” for their Brexit divorce bill cash, said: “The biggest single reason for Brexit was to get control of migration.
“If we stay in the single market effectively nothing would have changed. As a country we simply would not be able to cope with continued levels of migration on this scale.”
Proof, if proof were needed, that Britain is better off out of the EU. They’re sleepwalking towards disaster on the continent, we should have total control over our borders.
