the mythic invasion.. you know immigration and asylum is of particular interest to me - and this article in the Guardian, promoting an amnesty on asylum seekers who have outstayed seems eminently sensible. It goes on to say;

"Thanks to the drip, drip, drip of distorted tabloid reporting, the public became so bemused that an Amnesty poll found the British believed they were taking in 24% of the world's refugees when the whole of Europe was only absorbing 3%"

Relatively speaking then, not that many. The idea of the amnesty is that it saves the country money. Yes, that's it - saves us money.
