Note: the image above is a mistake.  The word ‘No’ should be inserted after ‘UK’ and before ‘Border’. So, last year saw the addition of about one Coventry’s worth of new citizens to the population of the UK; some 318,000 people.

This post is the first of two consecutive posts. The second post will address the question, ‘What’s a young person […]
