I'm right, you know …

I Didn’t Think Things Were Getting That Bad …

Again via the InformationIsBeautiful site, I came upon Good Magazine and their wealth of “transparencies”, including this one: an analysis of immigration into the USA.

So far, so mildly interesting – until you look at the more detailed figures around the main graphic. It seems that, of the 16,189 people who moved to the US from the UK last year, 64 were doing so as refugees or asylum seekers.

So, should I finish this post with the words “I say, that’s a bit much!” or …

“What, only 64?”

    Or how about “let’s hope that the UK will provide a safe haven to 64 people and nurture them to become good citizens”?
