A new record for immigration

IMMIGRANTS are being handed British passports at a rate of one every three minutes.

More than 164,000 were granted citizenship last year – a new record, and more than four times the number in the year Labour came to power.

Almost 1.2million foreigners have been told they can stay permanently since 1997, and now it is easier than ever to become British.

Is it any wonder that this country is falling apart? Schools in some parts of the country are forking out thousands just to pay for interpreters for children who do not speak English. Some police forces also have to spend money paying for interpreters to investigate crime by immigrants. It could mean that police are spending £76,300 a day on interpreters in one part of the country.
