I'm blaming Labour's open-door policy. Under Labour, the UK was one of only three EU nations - the other two being the sparsely-populated Republic of Ireland and Sweden - which allowed free access to workers from 2004 EU accession countries. All the other Member States had limits put in place.
It should come as no surprise then that, in 2009, the UK made up ONE THIRD of the entire EU's population growth.
