James Brokenshire’s first big speech as immigration minister went well then. First he landed the PM in it by accusing the “wealthy metropolitan elite” of encouraging mass immigration by employing cheap foreign nannies. Just like Dave did.
Now business leaders have piled in, Institute of Directors boss Simon Walker says of Brokenshire’s speech:
“It is feeble and pathetic to hear yet more divisive language from politicians on immigration.”
So Brokenshire has managed to alienate his boss and get business to turn on the Tories in one move. Slow clap.
