As Merkel refuses to set upper limit to migration, Britain panics about influx

The German chancellor has rejected calls from her coalition partner, the CSU, to limit the number of migrants entering into Germany, while in Britain panic is rising over the continuing flood of migrants after a report revealed staggering numbers.

    Angela Merkel refused to place an upper limit on migrants that the country accepts, speaking in an annual interview broadcast on Sunday.

    Merkel who leads the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), distanced herself from the conservative Bavarian party, the Christian Social Union (CSU), claiming that a limit on migrants was not the way forward, Deutsche Welle reported.

    “As far as an upper limit is concerned, my position is clear: I will not accept it,” she said, a position which opposes that of CSU leader Horst Seehofer who threatened not to enter into coalition without an annual upper limit for migrants.

    Meanwhile a new study by Migration Watch revealed that 1.2 million migrants are set to enter Britain over the next 10 years if the UK does not leave the EU.

    If open borders and free movement continue to apply to Britain, net migration will soar to around 125 000-a-year in the medium term. Migration Watch estimates the population will rise by 10 million in the next 20 years.

    The report paints a bleak outlook for the long term future if Britain stays under EU control, saying: “In effect, a failure to control EU immigration would result in the Office for National Statistics high migration scenario under which the population rises at half a million each year; 75 percent of that increase would be the result of the direct and indirect effects of immigration.”

    That’s the equivalent of a city the size of Birmingham landing in the UK every two years. The current population of Birmingham is just over one million.

    Philip Hollobone MP noted: “The biggest single reason for Brexit was to get control of migration. If we stay in the single market effectively nothing would have changed. As a country we simply would not be able to cope with continued levels of migration on this scale.”

    Some 15 hardline pro-EU Tory MPs are currently scheming with Labour to try to keep Britain in the single market and under Brussels rule with former premier Tony Blair acting as their spokesperson.

    Figures show Britain’s population has seen its sharpest increase in nearly 70 years, largely as a result of mass immigration.
