Parliament Passes Immigration Control as Brexit Becomes Irreversible

Last night the government’s flagship points-based immigration bill cleared the final parliamentary hurdle to become law – by a majority of 104 – ensuring free movement will cease when the Transition Period comes to an end. Naturally, not a single Labour MP voted for it…

It’s now more crucial than ever for Parliament to expedite putting in place all necessary legislation for post-Brexit Britain, as yesterday also marked the last possible opportunity for Britain to request an extension to the transition period. As promised by the Government, yesterday’s deadline under Article 132 of the Withdrawal Agreement came and went without such a request, meaning Britain is now committed by international treaty to become fully independent on 31st December 2020.

If he wasn’t having to deal with a deadly global pandemic, this year would be going pretty well for Boris…

French Navy Escorting Migrant Dinghies into British Waters

This shocking video reveals that the illegal migration trade, which is a multi-million €uro criminal enterprise, is being facilitated by the French Navy. Nigel Farage yesterday videoed evidence of a dangerously over-burdened dinghy being escorted by a French Naval vessel across the English channel until it was out of French waters, where in British waters it was met by what he reports to be a UK border force vessel. This is not a “search and rescue mission”, this is a handover aiding an abetting criminal in the commission of a crime.

What is going on?

  • Is the Home Secretary Priti Patel aware of what the border force is doing?
  • Has this collaboration been given Ministerial approval?
  • Is the French Navy not in breach of EU directives and/or law?
  • Is this the official or unofficial policy of the French government?

Nigel Farage tells Guido there will be more dynamite footage. The good weather means this is peak time for illegal cross channel migration. Surely an MP should be granted an urgent question to the Home Secretary today?

SNP Campaigned for “Unforgivable” Immigration Policy

The SNP denounced the passage of the new points-based immigration system last night, decrying it as “reckless”, “draconian”, and “unforgivable.” The same SNP that in 2014 campaigned for an independent Scotland to implement an Australian-style points-based system…

The SNP’s 2014 ‘Scotland’s Future’ manifesto for a separated Scotland promised that the newly independent government would deliver:

“a controlled points-based system to support the migration of skilled workers for the benefit of Scotland’s economy”

Judging by this Tweet from Ian Blackford last night, it seems the SNP’s current immigration policy is just telling foreigners to “f**k off”…

Post-Referendum UK Experiences Biggest Fall on Record in Hostility Towards Immigration

From 2016 to today, Britain has seen the biggest fall in hostility towards immigration since records began. Elections analyst Patrick English compiled data from across the British Election Study, the British Social Attitudes survey, the European Social Survey, European Values Study, and World Values Study. Pretty comprehensive…

Far from media narrative, hostility peaked under the Labour government, where concern grew over the first decade of the century. It has been falling ever since, with the most dramatic decline coming during and in the wake of the 2016 referendum. It appears as if UK attitudes have now surpassed their last least hostile point, at the end of 18 years of Tory government in the 1990s. It looks as if voters were always more worried about a lack of control than net immigration figures…

The BBC’s Nick Robinson was quick to argue that the fall in concern had been taking place before the referendum, which, whilst true, ignores the point that the decline turns into a collapse – 2016.

At least he’s acknowledging that concern has fallen. Guido doubts these facts will get in the way of prevalent media narrative…

Pidcock Refuses Five Times to Say What Labour’s Immigration Policy Is

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 has compiled a handy reminder for Labour Shadow Cabinet members of what conference committed party policy to do:

  • Oppose the current immigration legislation and any curbing of rights
  • Campaign for free movement, equality and rights for migrants
  • Reject any immigration system based on incomes, migrants’ utility to business, and number caps/targets
  • Close all detention centres
  • Ensure unconditional right to family reunion
  • Maintain and extend free movement rights
  • End “no recourse to public funds” policies
  • Scrap all Hostile Environment measures… and restrictions on migrants’ NHS access
  • Extend equal rights to vote to all UK residents regardless of nationality

Hopefully this will help Pidcock or any other Labour figure answer the question next time…

Labour Votes to Smash Border Controls

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 delegates pledges to:

  • Oppose the current immigration legislation and any curbing of rights
  • Campaign for free movement, equality and rights for migrants
  • Reject any immigration system based on incomes, migrants’ utility to business, and number caps/targets
  • Close all detention centres
  • Ensure unconditional right to family reunion
  • Maintain and extend free movement rights
  • End “no recourse to public funds” policies
  • Scrap all Hostile Environment measures… and restrictions on migrants’ NHS access
  • Extend equal rights to vote to all UK residents regardless of nationality

Uncontrolled immigration, free access to the NHS for the whole world, release all detainees, votes for anyone, from anywhere, with welfare benefits for everyone who makes it across the channel. This open border policy will drive traditional Labour voters straight into Nigel Farage’s open arms…

UPDATE: Migration Watch UK has responded to Labour’s new story, saying “If these reckless policies ever reach the statute book, we will all rue the day, especially the most vulnerable in our society”. Nigel Farage is typically blunt, “Labour now officially the party of open door mass migration without control. Old Labour voters will be appalled by this.” Labour are taking their voters for mugs…
