Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No one has anything to say about the population being (according to the Independent) 20%-25% higher than the official figure?

The difference being made up, presumably, of an immigrant population principally of working age. Undocumented or at least slipping between the cracks of official head-counting. Unaccounted for by the census, the labour force survey, social support systems... Living how? Room-sharing? Most, presumably, working for low-paid black-market jobs.

12 to 15 million extra people, most fitting that description, and most of them in South-East England? Does that seem possible?
