Sir, Theresa May laments mass immigration for weakening social cohesion. She overlooks the fact we’ve seen record net migration on her watch after five years as Home Secretary. In 2010 one of her first decisions was to scrap the Migration Impacts Fund to help relieve pressure on public services. This is a decision she should now reverse.
In the ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech, Enoch Powell said students ‘are not, and have been, immigrants’. When a Home Secretary shifts to the right of Powell, something has gone very wrong. It was not unnoticed that David Cameron missed the speech, but arrived for Boris Johnson. A change from one to the other beckons?
