Cornwall’s in-migration rate 50% higher than Britain

Brexiteers and remainers have been working themselves up into a lather over the latest immigration statistics. So let’s compare the record immigration into Britain announced this week with the most recent in-migration to Cornwall. (Incidentally, the latter was not a record by any means.)

Annual net-migration to Britain = 0.53% of the population. Cue headline news, panicking politicians and tabloid hysteria.

Annual net-migration to Cornwall = 0.82% of the population. Cue media silence, politicians ramping up housing target and developers just rampaging .
