Running from disintegration not integration, scandalous appeasement of radical Islam by the British government, media, and the Church of England. But frankly we can't run from the wholesale collapse of western values and national identity ..............
This is London May 20 2008
The number of migrants granted UK citizenship reached an all-time record last year as separate figures revealed more than 200,000 Britons moving abroad. A raft of statistics released by Whitehall revealed 164,635 foreign nationals were granted UK passports in 2007 - the equivalent of one every three minutes.
The figure is up seven per cent on the previous year and takes the total since Labour came to power to almost 1.2m.
Citizenship pledge: More than 160,000 foreign nationals became British while more than 200,000 Britons emigrated during 2006
But, while increasing numbers of foreign nationals opt to make a new life in Britain and naturalise their status here, UK citizens are heading abroad in record numbers.
More than 200,000 British citizens left the country in 2006 as emigration hit record levels.
Among 400,000 emigrants in 2006, the Office for National Statistics said 207,000 were British citizens.
Nearly one in three went to live in Australia or New Zealand. A quarter went to Spain or France, and around one in 12 went to the United States.
The rising rate of emigration meant that nearly 1.6 million Britons left the country to live abroad between 1997 and 2006.
