The research paper might be valid, it might be a pack of lies

The Today programme discussed the new research paper, published by the Centre for Research and Analysis of Migration (CReAM) at University College London which attempted to prove that immigration was beneficial to the United Kingdom.

Unfortunately one cannot believe anything that a public body says about immigration.

Under the Public Sector Equality Duty public bodies such as universities have a statutory obligation to propagate a positive view of immigration.

Whatever the research carried out by Christian Dustmann and Tommaso Frattini they MUST conclude that immigration is positive - to do otherwise would be breaking the law.

Therefore the research paper might be valid, it might be a pack of lies.

There is no way of telling.

PS both the authors of the report receive funding from Norface, which appears to be a pro-immigration lobby group http://www.norface-migration.org/people.php
