Theresa May's comments should be met with alarm. The Calais crisis continues for over a year, but she only manages to visit it last week. She claims she's worried about 'the largest movement of people since the Second World War' so plans to 'break the link' for students coming to learn and contribute as graduates. This will do nothing to deter desperate refugees seeking asylum. She applauds the £50m gained through the new health surcharge, but forgets it was meant to earn £200m per year so another target missed. May is out of touch and possibly out of her depth.
