The Daily Telegraph and the Daily Express both led with the news that the number of people living in Britain who were born overseas is set to reach 8 million on their front pages on Wednesday morning.
While we've come to expect migration alarmism from the Express, the use of the word "foreigners" and dehumanising rhetoric that follows in the copy comes as something of a surprise from a usually considered, if very conservative, broadsheet.
The article, which reflects the imminent release of new figures from the Migration Observatory, and says the new benchmark is "bad news" for ministers, goes on to talk of Syrian refugees "streaming in" to Europe, with others "massing outside the port of Calais".
While the Telegraph has used the figures to feed into its wider calls for stricter controls on immigration, many have pointed out a bit of an obvious problem with the story.
Mayor of London, Conservative MP and very well-paid Telegraph columnist Boris Johnson is, um, a "foreigner" by their definition. He was born in New York.
In fact, all of these brilliant Britons were born overseas too:
Ashes-winning cricketer. Born in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Actress, campaigner, model. Born in Paris, France.
Olympic gold medallist, world champion long-distance runner. Born in Mogadishu, Somalia.
Actress, comedian, model, campaigner. Born in Srinagar, India.
Cricketer, former England captain, former number one batsman in the world. Born in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.
Duke of Edinburgh, husband to the Queen. Born in Corfu, Greece.
Cyclist, first Briton to win the Tour de France, Olympic gold medallist. Born in Ghent, Belgium.
Richard E Grant
Actor, director, screenwriter. Born in Mbabane, Swaziland.
Cyclist, two-time winner of the Tour de France. Born in Nairobi, Kenya.
Actress, star of Game of Thrones, Emmy awards nominee for outstanding supporting actress. Born in Hamilton, Bermuda.
Etc and so on
And that's not to mention the millions of brilliant, hard-working Britons who were born overseas and don't happen to be famous.
Maybe having so many "foreigners" in the UK isn't such a bad thing after all...?
