This story over at the BBC caught my eye:
Many economic migrants from central and eastern Europe who came to work in the UK are returning home because of the recession, a report suggests.
That doesn't sound like the kind of immigration story you see very often in the newspapers. But it's even got a quote from (Anti)MigrationWatch big cheese Sir Andrew Green, who says:
Sir Andrew Green of Migrationwatch said migrants from the A8 countries were "only a small part of the picture which, at least for the time being, is getting smaller".
Come again? That's Sir Andrew Green saying that immigration is decreasing from the former A8 European Union countries. Decreasing!
Unfortunately, I couldn't find this new immigration story on the Mail or Express website today. Perhaps they're not as quick off the mark as the BBC as far as these things go? I don't know. Funny though, because they're usually so keen to run stories about immigration. You know the kind of thing:
Or even this, which was yesterday's front page at the Express:
Foam! Roar! Slaver! Costing us millions!
It's a familiar story
the "baby boom" from those despicable foreign reprobates; and of course this one is going to cost 'us' ("We" are not immigrants, after all) a billion pounds. The "boom" stories came about last week when the headlines on immigration weren't quite what the screamsheets wanted, as detailed by Five Chinese Crackers - so perhaps we can expect similar ignoring of the decline in immigration in tomorrow's papers? Well, we'll have to wait and see.
