At Least Some People Have Memory of What Was In The 2010 Tory Manifesto.



Well done Housing Minister Kris Hopkins for saying that Tory MPs have a "democratic right" to call on the Government not to lift border controls in January and well done also to Nigel Mills and the fifty Tory rebels for backing a recent amendment to the Immigration Bill.

It's good to see that at least some people have a memory of what was said in the 2010 Conservative Manifesto.

Unless I am mistaken it said that immigration was "too high" and promised to "reduce net migration" to "tens of thousands" a year.

It also promised "an annual limit on immigration", "new curbs on unskilled workers", and “transitional controls” on new European Union members.

Surely, if he wants an outright victory at the next election then now is the time for David Cameron to listen.

Whilst such rhetoric may well be an easy soundbite when in opposition, as is now so frequently proven by Yvette Cooper's change of stance, it is not so easy to deliver on when in Government as we are seeing with Mr Cameron's change of heart.

The fact of the matter is that only UKIP's policy can realistically get immigration under control which is having a sensible limit on the numbers of those who can come to the UK from all countries, not just those from outside the EU.
