arrivals_luton203.jpgWe'll be going big on immigration tonight, as new Government figures (download the pdf document here) confirm that the number of migrants who've come from East European EU states since their accession has been around 600,000 - many times higher than they predicted. What should be done now?

•a. Nothing - the more the merrier, our economy needs more migrants

•b. impose quotas on immigrants from existing EU countries

•c. take urgent action to prevent another wave of immigrants coming from Romania and Bulgaria

And would your answer stay the same if Britain's economy starts to slow down? Let us know.
