The Daily Express splashed a front page story on Thursday revealing the shocking consequences of immigration to the UK.
Only there was one thing a little bit wrong with the assertion....
For a decade,1 in 4 UK babies has been born to a immigrant mum (my 3 kids included). Daily Express catching up now... pic.twitter.com/vejd6YK06E— Fraser Nelson (@FraserNelson) July 16, 2015
(Oh, and there was also this little bit of irony...)
@FraserNelson Rather wonderfully, the children born to the woman in the front cover pic had an immigrant father.— Don Brown (@DonBrownEsq) July 16, 2015
Officially, the figures have indeed increased over the last few years.
@jdportes I've been writing 'a quarter' since (from memory) 2007; was just under then, just over now. But story has been true for 8 years.— Fraser Nelson (@FraserNelson) July 16, 2015
Unperturbed, Daily Express readers unleashed a tirade of anti-immigrant sentiment.
