Missing The Point

The Labour areas that swung the EU referendum for Leave were often, as across the North East, areas of barely any immigration.

Many of the others were centres of significant Asian population.

As near to immediately as would ever have been possible, the referendum result has led to the abandonment of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, affecting 50 per cent of the global economy.

But the only thing that we know about Theresa May's approach to immigration is what she is not going to do about it, namely the thing that was promised by the right wing of the Leave campaign.

A campaign of which, in all fairness, she was never part, so that no such promise was ever made by her.


  1. We roared and the world heard us, even the Tories replaced Cameron with Ed Miliband in drag. The anti-EU right has squandered whatever it could have had out of this, Davis was absolutely woeful today.

    1. He was born to be a great campaigning backbencher. He is simply not cut out to be a Minister.

      And, of course, "It is rather like sending your opening batsmen to the crease only for them to find, the moment the first balls are bowled, that their bats have been broken before the game by the team captain."
