Seven in ten people want an Australian-style cap on work visas issued to migrants after Brexit

SEVEN in ten people want an Australian-style cap on the number of work visas issued to migrants after Brexit, a poll revealed last night (MON).

Boris Johnson has promised an Australian-style points-based immigration system to apply to all arrivals if he wins the election but the plans do not include an overall cap on work permits.

Laying bare the pressure on the PM to toughen up his proposals, 71 per cent of the public want a cap and this rises to a huge 86 per cent of Tory voters, according to a Deltapoll survey for Migration Watch UK.

Three quarters of those sampled in Conservative-held marginal constituencies were also in favour.

The campaign group said the survey exposed the public’s overwhelming support for a much tighter immigration system after Brexit to bring numbers down.

And it comes a week after official figures revealed the number of work visas issued to non-EU migrants soared to 190,000 this year.

It is the highest annual total since the points-based system was introduced for them in 2008.

Migration Watch chief Alp Mehmet said: “As usual, the sensible British public, in this case more than 30 million of them, are way ahead of the politicians.

“Without any cap on work permits, the inflow would be essentially uncontrolled, and risks being uncontrollable.”

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics. If our political elite were more than just yes men weighed down by the chains of political correctness, they would see that the people of Britain have had enough. 
Ever increasing taxation to try and fix their mistakes?

Has the Supreme Court handed Boris Johnson a Brexit escape route?

The Supreme Court’s judgment is the latest constitutional perversion after the Benn act. But ironically it may assist the Government in achieving its objective of Britain leaving the EU by 31 October, without having to seek an extension to the Article 50 process.
In paragraph 34, the Supreme Court states that its ‘proper function’ under our constitution is to give effect to the separation of powers (which justifies court intervention in relation to prorogation). Then, in what appears to be an innocuous sentence in paragraph 55, it says that it is to be “remember[ed] always that the actual task of governing is for the executive and not for Parliament or the courts.”
Yet the Benn Act manifestly contradicts this principle. It dictates how the Government must conduct negotiations with a foreign body, the EU, to the extent of obliging the Prime Minister to write specifically worded letters and accept whatever extension it offers when certain conditions are not met. In the situation when t…
