The four MPs are in favour of Britain voting to leave the EU on 23rd June, and suggested that post-Brexit our immigration system could be “much less bureaucratic…than the existing system.”
Explaining the system that they are in favour of, the four wrote: “To gain the right to work, economic migrants will have to be suitable for the job in question. For relevant jobs, we will be able to ensure that all those who come have the ability to speak good English.”
David Cameron has been quick to rubbish the proposal. “Australia has more migration per head than we do here in the UK, so I think it’s the wrong approach,” the Prime Minister said on BBC Radio 5 Live. George Osborne has called it “fantasy politics.”
So who’s right? A panel of experts including Chukka Umunna and Peter Singer share their views.
