Much as I don’t rate the quality of Sir James Dyson‘s products, I must agree with him that Theresa May‘s ideas are flacky. This Telegraph article is a must-read. Check it out!

via Sir James Dyson: Theresa May risks ‘long-term economic decline’ over foreign students – Telegraph.

What truly amazes me is that many Tories consider Theresa May as a serious candidate to take over from David Cameron. Theresa May’s Home Office have lost control of UK immigration – this includes not being able to count accurately the number of visitors to the UK.

No doubt politicians, right across the political spectrum, will make errors between now and the election in May. Already the negative campaigning has started.

Why can’t the media focus on the hard evidence and the policy alternatives?

Thoughts?

One response

  1. Quite apart from the fact that most of our universities would not be viable without foreign students paying many times the amount that British students pay,Sir James makes a valid point.

    In addition many of our Universities have set up shop in China and Singapore so if Theresa May has her way the students that come from abroad to this country will simply go there taking their money with them.

    As Dr Alf knows the problem around immigration to the UK has multiple causes:

    1)EU rules on the free movement of people

    2)A lazy and unproductive indigenous workforce which UK employers wish to replace with more productive and hardworking foreign workers

    3)A disfunctional Home Office led by a disfunctional and stupid woman(Theresa May) who allows 250,000 illegal immigrants into the country each year,does not know how many people are in the country,takes measures designed to discourage Chinese tourism rather than increase it.

    In any company that was properly run this vain and vexatious woman would be dismissed without compensation but is seriously being considered as Prime Ministerial material.

    Already we have Cameron a man Sir Bernard Ingham describes as “Promising too much and delivering too little”.

    In Theresa May we have someone who is incapable of controlling illegal immigration,incapable of compelling our inefficient and useless Chief Constables to agree to force mergers or do their jobs and incapable of understanding that until the issue of productivity is faced up to we either have to have immigration or use robots to do the work that the indigenous population is unwilling or incapable of doing.
