The British Government — our government — always lies about immigration. This, and its reasons, should be compulsory study for all students of politics, especially those who think that agreement between the two front benches is a good sign
Labour has lied for years and years because it views each new immigrant as a potential, or even a guaranteed, Labour voter. Ah, the secret of eternal political power!
The Tories have a long and notorious history of lying reaching as far back as the 1950s and 1960s.
