More than six million Eastern Europeans have travelled to Britain since since the EU’s borders were thrown open to them, new figures have shown.
The figure is ten times higher than official estimates of the numbers of Poles and migrants from neighbouring countries who are thought to have settled here in the past three years.
It suggests the real number of migrants from Eastern Europe who have stayed to live and work in Britain could be much higher than the 600,000 estimate that has been acknowledged by ministers.
Last year alone nearly 2.8 million visitors arrived from the eight countries that joined Europe in 2004, the figures showed.
The fast-rising level of travel to Britain is the latest indicator of the growing scale of Eastern European migration. There were more than four times as many visitors from Eastern Europe last year than in 2003, the year before labour markets were thrown open to workers from the East.

“I think the country wants a boss like that, you know? A little bit of fascism there. Just a little bit. Just a pinch of it.”
On the February 7 edition of MSNBC’s Imus in the Morning, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews heaped praise on GOP presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani, calling the former New York mayor “the kind of gutsy, street-corner politician we all grew up with” who “stood on the corner during the fire and told us what was going on.” Matthews said that he would like “[a] guy who wasn’t on the ranch during Katrina — who was out on the street corner answering questions,” adding: “I’m so sick of southern guys with ranches running this country. I want a guy to run for president who doesn’t have a fucking — I’m sorry — a ranch. Wouldn’t that be good?”
Matthews again touted the progress Giuliani made in improving olfactory conditions in New York City, asserting that “subways didn’t smell like pee anymore” and that “[e]ven the phone booths in New York have always smelled like pee.” Matthews made similar claims on the February 5 editions of MSNBC Live and Hardball, both noted by Media Matters for America. Matthews also claimed that Giuliani “made you feel like you had a right to walk the street safely” and added, “I think the country wants a boss like that, you know? A little bit of fascism there. Just a little bit. Just a pinch of it.”
As Media Matters has noted, Matthews has previously made the similar claim that Giuliani “is a front-runner because the voters like this guy because during 9-11 he was the one guy there on the street corner, not hiding like all the other pols did.”

BRUSSELS will today launch a controversial power grab — by pushing for a series of EU-wide “green crimes”.
It wants jail terms and hefty fines for offences from PICKING WILD FLOWERS to pollution and illegally dumping waste.
But critics say the move is a clear attempt by the European Commission to trample over national sovereignty.
EU countries have had the historic right to decide what constitutes a crime and how it should be punished.
But Brussels has seized on a European Court decision in 2005 which ruled that environmental matters should be dealt with at EU level.
Neil O’Brien, of campaign group Open Europe, said support for the plan would be a “watershed in EU politics”.
And Tory MEP Timothy Kirkhope called it an “alarming precedent”.
He added: “This is a significant transfer of power to the Commission. It’s a worrying erosion of British sovereignty — a blow to Britain’s ability to decide things for ourselves.”

A Senate committee Thursday debated legislation that would prevent state government from forcing the implantation of a microchip in humans.
SB 47, by Sen. Brian Crain, R-Tulsa, prohibits the forced implantation of a microchip in humans and authorizes the Department of Health to impose a maximum fine of $10,000 against violators. Each day of continued violation would constitute a separate offense. Members of the Senate Health and Human Resources Committee gave the bill a “Do Pass” recommendation, sending the measure on to the full Senate.
The 6-2 vote in support of the bill came after some lively debate, which included a reference to George Orwell. Crain said the measure, a constituent request, was about preventing the forced implantation of microchips in humans, an attempt to put Oklahoma’s state government ahead of developments in similar technology being utilized today. He said forced implantation by the state of individuals would an intrusion of personal liberty. The bill makes it a violation of public policy, Crain said.
“I think this is a novel bill about addressing technological issues,” he said.
Sen. Constance Johnson, D-Oklahoma City, said she had some concerns about issues related to “Big Brother” and wanted to get on the books a state law protecting individual rights passed.

Robert Pastor and the Rockefeller Council on Foreign Relations are seeking to overthrow the US Constitution. The CFR was established in the 1920s by the Rockefellers and other elites who wanted a centralized world government to control and enslave the entire world. The NAU is just one more plank in their platform toward that goal.
Please explain to everyone you meet the true significance of this. Please support Republican presidential candidate Rep Ron Paul who is the only one who has the courage to oppose the CFR. I also urge you to see “Freedom To Fascism” by Aaron Russo available on You Tube and Google Video. Get informed, inform your neighbors and defend your country now!
