IT IS now four years since David Cameron promised to reduce immigration into the UK from the hundreds of thousands to “tens of thousands” a year.
“No ifs, no buts”, was what the Prime Minister said.
But the latest official figures, out yesterday, show he is nowhere near to fulfilling that promise.
In fact in the last year immigration into our country reached record highs with net migration reaching a 10-year peak at 330,000 in the year up to March.
Thirteen per cent of people in this country now were born abroad.
This is a colossal and significant blow to the Prime Minister.
