Last quote by Jonathan Portes

We've got a process – the permanent residence process – which clearly isn't capable of dealing with more than a few thousand people, let alone 3 million. So that process will have to be replaced, it will have to be streamlined. Everybody in government knows it – but we're still letting people apply for this, and then rejecting a third of them for stupid bureaucratic reasons. And of course the result has been ... that we're spreading uncertainty and confusion.

Most recently, Jonathan Portes said, “There is no significance to any particular numerical threshold for the UK population, it all depends on how we live and where we live. Some parts of the UK are densely populated and some aren't. You don't see the 70 million, you see your own neighbourhood. They depend on all sorts of factors which the ONS does not pretend to be able to forecast or model. My view is that I think EU migration will fall very significantly over the next couple of years, and migration overall will fall. Therefore the population increase may be significantly slower than the ONS says.”.
