Immigration Control Helps Cohesion

Former EU Brexit negotiator Michael Barnier announced this week that he thinks France should ‘possibly’ suspend immigration from outside the EU for the next five years. As columnist Stephen Glover wrote in the Daily Mail, this seems to suggest that the UK’s desire to reclaim border sovereignty may not have been so xenophobic and small minded after all.

Voters Still Care About Borders

There was further evidence of the perception gap on the issue of immigration between the public and the political establishment this week. The immigration-at-all-costs priorities of our leaders was reflected perfectly in the new trade deal with India, which will allow Indian nationals have even easier access to the UK for work and study.

Immigration Controls Weakened

Despite last week’s tough rhetoric over asylum abuse, the government’s overall immigration policy is scarily weak.

Previously, non-EU graduates (who make up […]

A Good Start Home Secretary!

The big news this week has of course been the Home Secretary’s presentation to Parliament of the (on the whole, welcome) consultation document for reforming the ‘broken’ asylum system and to deal with illegal immigration, especially by those arriving in dinghies and the backs of lorries from safe countries. We broadly welcomed it (see our press […]
