Now Can We Have a Sane Debate on Immigration?

I never understood why David Cameron promised to cut net migration to tens of thousands. It was never deliverable - and his failure helped spark the fall in trust, that provoked many to vote to leave. So if there is one thing we can salvage from this sorry story, let's try to make it sanity in the immigration debate. It is surely time to end, the way this touchstone issue poisons our national politics.

The real immigration problem is not migration from the EU but from outside the EU, over which the UK has had complete control all along, but which has soared out of control nevertheless. How did this come about? And how can the problem be solved?

Public Need Answers on Migration From Both EU Remain and Leave Camps

Phoebe Griffith | Posted 29.05.2016 | UK Politics

With net EU migration accounting for more than half of the net long-term migration figure at 184,000 and short-term EU migration running at sustained high levels, there's no doubt that free movement within the EU is driving a large part of recent migration to the UK. This poses big challenges for both Remain and Leave.

Foreigners for sure bring change. But things, and people, need to be on the move for history to happen. As in many other cases, going into retreat is not an option and won't benefit anybody in the long-run...

The EU Referendum Debate Is Dominated by the Right-Wing Agenda on Immigration and Feeds Into Far Right Politics

Hsiao-Hung Pai

The growing violence of far right groups is no accident. With their ideas endorsed by mainstream political discourse, neo-fascists know that their actions wouldn't be condemned by society - and they're not. The racism and prejudice that we have witnessed in the current debate will make things a lot worse for communities - and threaten our safety and well-being.

Tuesday marked the end of what I like to call my "pity month": a month spent in Olbia, my home town, my no man's land as I waited to move from one life to the next. I'm a 23-year-old Italian who chose to study and work in London. Now, nearly five years later, I have just touched down in Sydney to start again. I have officially become a double expat.

Schengen in on life support and West African manufacturers should pay close attention. They are already convinced they won't be able to compete with the cheaper, better quality imports, which will be the inevitable result of a forthcoming EU/Africa free trade agreement. For most, exporting to Europe is a distant dream anyway. Increased border restrictions will make it even more unlikely.

A Second Inconvenient Truth

Governments cannot pretend that they never knew this was coming, or that it wasn't worth doing anything about. Now, we have an opportunity; soon, we will have a burden. The difference between those two terms--politically, economically and morally--is worth a great deal.
