Just a couple of days after Britain voted to leave the European Union, and politicians are already taking back their promises on immigration.
Daniel Hannan, a Conservative politician who campaigned for Britain to leave, said on BBC Newsnight, that when Britain leaves the EU, “it means free movement of labour,“ into the country.
A BBC Newsnight interviewer then asked him: “Why didn’t you say this in the campaign? Why didn’t you say in the campaign that you were wanting a scheme where we have free movement of labour? Come on, that’s completely at odds with what the public think they have just voted for.”
Hannan then replied: “We never said there was going to be some radical decline … we want a measure of control.”
It’s true. He never said there was going to be this or that, but he certainly implied that’s what was going to happen.
Just take a look at a few of his Tweets.
Let me put this in plain English: this was never about letting the people control immigration, it was about letting the government control it.
This is how politics works; left-wing politicians increase immigration, and “respectable” mainstream conservatives say they’ll reduce it, but just never quite “manage” to, for some reason.
Left-wingers want to “diversify” your horrible and bland White neighborhood into a hand-holding, rainbow ghetto of multi-racial, pan-gendered people, all singing “kumbaya”.
Mainstream conservatives are simply too cowardly to do anything about it.
