EU citizens maybe. They are trying to cross the English chanel in inflatables in the middle of winter as the EU treats them so bad.
There is also more British people leaving the UK than returning so both the British and EU citizens feel its probably best to GTFO.
British citizens with high education and skills have always been in demand. You still haven't answered the question. Why are the migrants and refugees lining up along the English channel.
They are lining up in most countries. The UK is by no means "Unique" in this regard. Also its a good time to leave the UK now since if you immigrate to the EU you will get a chance to retain EU citizenship which is why many Brits are currently buying houses in Ireland and France.
Brits have always emigrated usually returning with money. Ireland and Spain are major destinations for British pensioners to emigrate to. You can't track how many Brits emigrate to Ireland because about one 1/4 -1/3 of Ireland's population are born British citizens. Irish have always emigrated to Britain. The British aristocracy and buisness owners own a large proportion of Ireland even yet, for instance the mineral rights still belong to thd traditional aristocratic land owners still living in Britain.Ireland which is in the EU have a huge number of their youth emigrating to Canada, Australia, new Zealand and the US never to return.But why would these immigrants who are already in the "land of milk and honey" risk their lives hiding in trucks, trying to walk across the channel tunnel and trying to paddle across the English channel?
Usually when you are intending to return with the money you are not elderly and buying your retirement home on the French countryside. Also we can easily track how many people immigrate/emigrate. Its actually a critical part of how the government knows who should pay what in taxes.As for why many refugees tries to get to the UK from France its mostly because France is doing a terrible job and there are plenty of job opportunities in the UK (hence why many EU immigrants are there just to work). Refugees are obviously also not up to date on current politics and Brexit.
You can't track it because 3 million British citizens are Irish citizens and EU citizens by birth.
... You have no idea how much information the government is keeping on you do you?
The same goverment who doesn't know how many legal immigrants are in the UK lol.The UK boarder with the the rep if Ireland is porous even before the EU.
Actually we have a pretty good grasp on how many illegal immigrants there are.
Maybe in Sweden. The UK government doesn't know how many EU migrants there are let alone ilegal ones.
Complete nonsense. Finding unknown values is a basic function of math.
But if they are unknown how do you confirm them?
MATH! Things like election polls do you think they just pull them out of thin air?
A lot of the time they do.
No they dont.
There was a big scandal about it a few years ago.
I am not saying it does not happen but if it does happen its the exception that proves the rule.
It happened for years.
And we do things like polls on a daily basis. Even if one group lied about it its just a small percentage of all the polls that are done correctly.
I'm talking about how the British government had no clue about how many immigrants were in the country.
If they have no clue that means they have not looked. Its easy to figure out and they could be done in like a week to a month.
Sounds like someone needs to retake high school then.
That's eatonians for you.
