Immigration, facts not fiction – Adam Smith Institute, @ASI

The Adam Smith Institute’s Executive Director, Sam Bowman, summarises the facts on UK immigration in this useful post.

It is a response to an article that misquotes the ASI’s position, but Bowman’s point-by-point tear down makes for a useful reference in its own right.

It troubles me that the UK is where it is because of misinformation, miss-selling and misunderstanding. Generations of politicians (on left and right) have failed to make the case for immigration, just as the right has failed to make the case for free markets.

This chart is particularly telling: the lower our net migration, the higher our national debt.
