Factcheck: What's behind the fall in net migration?



The British history new citizens must learn: no radicals, no homosexuals, no Holocaust.

In its citizenship lessons, just as in schools, how the British government tells our national story is an intensely political affair.

What kinds of immigrants come or stay? Illegality and UK tabloid portrayal of immigrants.


The UK press, particularly its tabloid and broadsheet newspapers, plays an important role in the political dynamics of life in Britain. By generating and transmitting perspectives on a range of issues like migration, newspapers have the potential to link with public policies as well as influence public opinion via readers—although causal evidence on both of these relationships is scarce (Threadgold, 2009). The Migration Observatory at COMPAS is in the process of conducting a study examining how UK newspapers portray migrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers. In this blog post, I would like to share some emergent findings that I hope will raise discussion about migration in the media. Specifically, I will use several corpus linguistic techniques to show how tabloids selectively use the adjective ILLEGAL to describe immigrants who come and stay in Britain.
