Brit exodus: Last one out, turn out the lights
The Telegraph is reporting on new figures coming out of the UK’s Office for National Statistics (ONS). The headline figure is a new estimate that 2 Million British citizens have emigrated in the last 10 years. Over the same period, the figures show 1.58 million foreign nationals left the UK. In 2006, it is estimated 200,000 Brits left. Although there is some argument over the statistics, this level of emigration is historically high and highlights that moving country has become a reality for an increasingly significant percentage of Britons.
