David Cameron’s Promise to the British People

This is the vow the then Leader of the Opposition made to voters in 2010:

“If we take the steps set out today, if we deal with all the different avenues of migration, legal and illegal, levels of immigration can return to where the were in the 1980s and 1990s, when immigration was not a front rank political issue. And I believe that that will mean net migration to this country will be in the order of tens of thousands each year, not the hundreds of thousands every year that we’ve seen over the last decade… With us, our borders will be under control, and immigration will be at levels our country can manage. No ifs, no buts. This is a promise we made to the British people and a promise we are keeping.”

And this is the election literature the Tories don’t want you to see: “David Cameron’s contract with you“, promising to “reduce immigration… if we don’t deliver, kick us out“.

Guido always said that even if he really wanted to cut immigration – and there are sound economic arguments against doing that – this could never be achieved inside the EU as it stands. Net migration is now three times Cameron’s limit…

Jeremy Corbyn on Big Ben Bong Ban

“… if we have to miss Big Ben in reality for a while so that work can be done, well, that’s something we have to go through. It’s not a national disaster or catastrophe.”
