UK Immigration Reaches Record High

August 27th, 2015

Episode 473 of 1091 episodes

Europe is on the move. 330,000 more people came to live in the UK than left in the year to March. That's an all time high and means 13% of the UK population were born abroad. We talk to Fraser Nelson, editor of the Spectator Magazine in the UK, and ask Kent Ekeroth from the Sweden Democrats party what effect immigration has had on his country. India's economy is growing faster than China -- but are its people seeing the benefits? Our business editor Kamal Ahmed reports from Delhi. (Picture: A passport being stamped Credit: BBC)
