No, I mean it.
"Overcrowded" is definitely not right word, so what I meant and that is fact that there are a lot of Africans, Asians and people from other continents that immigrated in EU lately (last few decades). Until recently I would say East Europeans too but they are now EU members. Even they are not welcomed to "immigrate" in western part of EU as we see.
Immigrants obviously were needed at the time but now when things are not rosy quite a few western Europeans would like to "send them home".
I do not know numbers (if anybody knows them) I tried to find it on internet but failed. Numbers may not look like much but still I believe that there was significant immigration to EU at least last decade (or longer).
As for Australia it's unbelievable but Brits that came here consider themselves like only real Australians...everybody else is immigrant for them except Aborigines who are not even mentioned in constitution...
