Bad immigration policy doesn’t spring from bad stats

It’s not our immigration data – or perceived lack of – that’s the problem, in fact we know far more than we did a decade ago.

“Disney World can keep better track of its visitors than Britain” was the Mail on Sunday’s summary of the public administration committee’s report on migration statistics. That’s probably true. But it’s hardly surprising; Disney World’s task is, for obvious reasons, rather easier. In particular, Disney doesn’t have to deal with the fact that well over 500 million people are free to come to the UK whenever they like, and stay for as long as they want.
