The campaign feels better run, including online. People massively prefer Boris Johnson to Corbyn. The question is whether it is enough
“What we’ll do is make sure that the Government, and Parliament, has got control.”
The Home Office minister denies allegations that the Tories are setting arbitrary and unachievable targets with their promised points-based model.
The Leader of the Opposition stonewalls on the question of what his party’s plans are regarding freedom of movement post-Brexit.

After the conclusion of negotiations between the twenty-seven EU Member States and Boris Johnson’s government on the UK’s EU withdrawal agreement, Brexiteers seem to finally be on the verge of achieving their goal, writes Thierry Chopin (ESPOL/Bruges). But will Brexit succeed? Probably not, or else in its current form it will cause many losers, including those who voted to leave the EU […]
The ‘tens of thousands’ pledge has been ditched, replaced by something more vague.
After the Labour Party conference – something Corbyn views as the sovereign decision-making body of the party – voted for a ‘defend and extend free movement’ immigration policy, the BBC’s Today Programme was understandably inquisitive as to what this would mean for Labour’s immigration plans. Laura Pidcock failed to answer the question five consecutive times… Guido […]

The first piece of a series this week about what the Conservative Manifesto should look like.
Would they actually think that, now Brexit’s done and immigration back under control, that they can return to their natural home in the Labour Party?
Speech sets out what Boris Johnson wants his government to do.
Since Parliament is unlikely to consider many of the measures proposed today, they should be put to the people as soon as possible.
I’ve now been back in London just over a week since spending a prolonged time in the United States for the day job, though also the passion that made me put to bed my long-term ambition of standing for Parliament when I decided to take myself off the Conservative Party candidates list last Easter, as […]

Home Office minister Brandon Lewis said ‘existing immigration rules’ would be applied to EU citizens without settled status.
Despite being the legal default, the path to No Deal at the end of this month is difficult to see. The Benn Act passed by MPs is a tightly drafted piece of legislation. And the Government’s bold new proposals for a deal are likely to be rejected by the EU – not least because the […]

I worked for two years as a civil servant at the Department for Exiting the European Union. I cannot fault the staff I worked with, who represent the very best and brightest that the British Civil Service has to offer. DExEU felt more like a start-up business than a lumbering ministry of state: it was […]

Project lead Dr Michaela Benson participated in a roundtable event on ‘Brexit’s Effect on Citizens, Human Rights & Immigration’, organised by Dr Adrienne Yong at City, University of London in June 2019.
Despite what even the most plugged-in person may think, Labour’s conference is still ongoing – and they’ve just passed one of their most extreme motions to date: Labour’s next manifesto will effectively smash all border controls. Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to receive free healthcare… The motion just passed by […]

Former PM rips into successor and accuses Gove of disloyalty.

Yet when they learn about the EU’s “three-month rule”, two-thirds (64%) say it would provide “enough control” over EU immigration. And 67% say that they would support the introduction of ID cards if it meant the authorities could enforce restrictions applied in other EU […]
The UK has yet to call a snap election, as expected. But on social media, political groups are already highly active.
Almost half of the UK’s fastest-growing startups have at least one foreign-born founder – many of whom came to the UK to study, then stayed to work.
If it is seen as creating a back-door for low-skilled immigration it risks eroding the very public trust which has given the Government political space to liberalise the rules.
The system was never designed to cut migration — just the opposite.
Brexit has taught us many things as a country. One of the harsher lessons is that mainstream politicians, along with the media and policy communities, can no longer be trusted to provide an accurate and comprehensive account of why important political events happen. The Leave result delivered back in June 2016 has greeted by a […]
