More people are migrating to Britain than ever before. After Brexit, the British government promised to severely limit immigration. But the exact opposite happened.
In order to understand how big the problem is that Rishi Sunak is now facing, you have to go back to 2016. At that time, a number caused a great deal of excitement: Shortly before the Brexit referendum, it was announced that the bottom line was a good 33o 000 people in immigrated to the UK for a year. The number was surprisingly high and fueled the Brexiteers’ demand to at least halve the influx. Now, almost seven years after the referendum on leaving the EU, the opposite is the case: last year about 60o 000 more people immigrated to Great Britain than left the country. As many as never before.
