Unskilled, Indeed

If you trust Theresa May on immigration, or on any of her other "tough" issues, then you were not paying attention during her very long period as Home Secretary. For that, you can have only yourself to blame.

Moreover, May's and Sajid Javid's definition of everyone on less than £50,000 per annum as "unskilled" is grossly offensive to the huge majority of British workers. 

In view of the data breach at the Conservative Party Conference, their definition of everyone on that figure or above as "skilled" is downright laughable.

And anyway, you only have to look at the areas that swung the referendum to see that the victory of Leave was in fact a rejection of the vision of Nigel Farage or, as he would have us believe, Boris Johnson.

We had already endured it for 39 years and under all three parties, since the Callaghan Government's turn to monetarism in 1977. Against that, we voted Leave. Had we not done so, then Remain would have won.
