“Politik er at ville”, sagde Olof Palme. Cameron gjorde det til en prioritet at nedbringe indvandringen, og så eksploderede den. Politik er snarere at administrere alt det, som ikke kan lade sig gøre.
Net migration into Britain hit a record high last year, official figures revealed this morning. In the 12 months to March, 330,000 more people arrived in the UK than left – smashing the previous record of 320,000 at the height of the Eastern European immigration boom under Tony Blair in 2005.
The revelation is a huge blow to David Cameron who gave a ‘no ifs no buts’ guarantee that he would slash net migration to below 100,000 a year. Compared to the previous year, net migration has soared by 94,000, with 636,000 migrants moving to Britain and just 307,000 people leaving, the Office for National Statistics said.
