I am confused by David Cameron’s latest migration gimmick. He slashed funding support for English learning in 2011 and 2015 by about £45m, but now offers £20m. There is less money since 2010 to help those with language difficulties and fewer people will have access to it. English tests at 2.5 years is still not as early as under Labour. Doing too little and often too late best summarises his government’s migration policies at home or abroad. This is but the latest example.
