Unpublished letter to the Times #18


Sir, I’m disappointed to see Tim Montgomerie’s sorry attempt at promoting a vote for Leave by empty fearmongering. Claiming that net migration ‘could’ be ‘444,000 this year or 555,000 next’ is an exercise in wild speculation. If he’s truly concerned about controlling EU migration, he should revisit how countries like France and Germany do a better job than the UK at implementing existing EU rules. The more Brexit campaigners harp on about ‘free’ movement, the less convinced I am they know anything about its many caveats and restrictions.
