Not vital statistics
What a lot of rubbish that bunch of statistics are (13% of town’s residents were not born in the UK, KE, September 3). My father was Welsh, from Pembrokeshire, and my mother English, from Gloucestershire. I was born in 1953 in Hong Kong when my parents were working for the government on a two-year contract. My brother was born in Borneo three years later, when my parents were stationed there. My sister was born in Gillingham two years before.
Many children of our armed forces were born and continue to be born abroad.
These statistics have been produced just at the time when the migrant crisis is boiling away to fuel an argument.
Use these statistics with care. Mike Stephens Tenterden
