    Pending Brexit, immigration has still not been addressed

    One, among many, reasons why people don't trust the establishment is the pack of lies they have been told about uncontrolled immigration, which has not benefited the economy and which has not slowed down. The people have a right to see their concerns addressed

    Low paid immigration is an expensive option

    The problem with more cheap labour carrying out tasks with insufficient training and investment to back up the staff is it also places many extra burdens on taxpayers. The costs of new schools and hospitals to cope with the sheer number of immigrants are rarely factored in to the equation, giving a fale impression of the true costs of low paid immigration

    Chaos and glaring contradiction from Brussels on immigration

    The EU is in a state of complete and utter chaos, disorganisation, and directionless ‘leadership’ over the refugee crisis. But when it comes to our own immigration policy Brussels is quite sure that we aren't allowed control over our borders. Who said, "Brexit"?

    The changing face of immigrant Europe

    The chaotic migrant problem in Europe has led to cities like Rome seeing historic sites taken over by gangs, making it both dangerous and unrecognisable. But now Brussels wants to off-load the new migrants to countries like Poland. They won't be happy, but will the EU give them a choice?

    Europe now has open-door immigration

    The Left’s dream of open-door immigration is now effectively being achieved by back-door mass migration across the Med under the moral guise of rescuing victims from unscrupulous traffickers

    "Bloody Foreigners"

    Britain has often benefited hugely from immigration. But: ‘Give me your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be freeloaders’? Not anymore. That's what Brits really want over the EU, and immigration policy generally

    EU and LibDems constrain Tory efforts on immigration

    The Conservatives are making some serious moves to address the immigration question. But they are held back by the Liberal Democrats and, of course, the European Union

    UKIP is not a racist party, but its economic policy is bunk

    The notion that UKIP is a racist party is fallacious and deeply unfair. Detractors should instead focus on UKIP's real flaws, of which there are many

    Britain's proxy debate on immigration

    Britain's political class is happy to debate immigration now that the emphasis has shifted to eastern Europeans. This is merely a carefully constructed substitute debate, which allows our politicians to ignore other concerns that long predate matters related to the EU

    Mass immigration must have depressed wages

    Over the last decade the UK has had an unprecedented expansion of its labour supply due to mass immigration under Labour which is part of the background to stagnant wages, says John Redwood MP

    Migration and identity

    The migration debate in the UK is a political and philosophical mess of cherry-picked, opportunistic sound-bites, says former British Ambassador Charles Crawford

    SKY below the belt with Farage over Enoch Powell

    The British media has got to drop the politically correct attacks on UKIP and play fair. UKIP leader Nigel Farage was hit below the belt by Sky News in a silly attempt to link him with Enoch Powell. Despite the tittering from his opponents, Farage wasn't thrown at all

    BBC immigration bias, but only against Europe

    We all sympathise with refugees but why do BBC journalists say it's solely our responsibility to take them in rather than, say Egypt's, or Russia's, or China's. Post-imperial guilt? Are they reporters or activists?

    Immigration: A denial of democracy

    On immigration, the British political class simply ignored public opinion. And the Pakistani working classes are just as upset as the traditional "white working classes. "What does this say about our 'democracy'?
