Positive net migration may affect house prices and rents.

Presuming that positive net migration means that more people are coming into the country than leaving I have another question. Is the migration between the UK and other EU countries positive or negative? How many older couples leave their over large houses for a place in the sun while how many workers from the UK take up more than a shared house or flat? Immigrants driving up house prices and reducing wages may be good soundbites but need to be looked at more carefully. I quote once more

The (UN) High Commissioner noted that "while migration and refugee issues are completely valid topics for public debate, it is imperative that migration policy decisions that affect people's lives and fundamental human rights should be made on the basis of fact -- not fiction, exaggeration or blatant xenophobia. History has shown us time and again the dangers of demonizing foreigners and minorities, and it is extraordinary and deeply shameful to see these types of tactics being used in a variety of countries, simply because racism and xenophobia are so easy to arouse in order to win votes or sell newspapers."
