New Points Based System Likely To Result In Higher Immigration

The Government’s claim that their new Points Based system will result in lower levels of immigration is pure spin. The scheme has no limits and, in fact, will probably result in even higher levels of immigration. It is so complex and bureaucratic, with potentially 26,000 job titles, that it is highly likely to lead to […]

The Lisbon Treaty: More Red-tape Round Our Border Controls?

By Sir Andrew Green, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, in The Sunday Times, 4 November, 2007 Just occasionally a series of events crystallises public opinion and transforms the political landscape.
