Net migration to UK falls by 49,000 after Brexit vote
Or expressed another way net migration into the UK was 329,000. That is a net 165,000 from the EU and a net 164,000 from non EU nations. Simple maths gives you the total figure of 329,000. The Guardian’s headline figure of a 49,000 fall calls to mind misleading price drop announcements at the supermarket. Harsh words until you consider the actual figures are never in the article. When the media make their pronouncements about fake news, all they need to do is examine their own headlines and compare them to the facts.
