Nigel Lawson on immigration: Bankers yes, fruit-pickers no.

Former Conservative chancellor Nigel Lawson has suggested that Britain’s post-Brexit immigration policy should favour ‘highly skilled’ financial sector workers, over ‘Romanian fruit pickers that we don’t need’

These comments have not gone down well with Lib Dem leader Tim Farron, who criticised Mr.Lawson’s ‘incredible naivety’, as well as his failure to ‘understand the need for high-skilled and low-skilled labour across the country’

Mr Lawson’s remarks come after Deutsche Bank announced the possible relocation to Europe of 4000 UK-based staff, which they say is as a result of the Brexit vote.

Critics might wonder how the industry which brought the global economy to the edge of collapse, could ever be called ‘highly skilled’.
