Not for the first time, Conservatives promise to cut immigration

Despite failing in 2010, and 2015, the Conservatives will once again promise to reduce net migration to Britain. David Cameron first pledged to reduce immigration to the ‘tens of thousands’ in 2010, but failed. This promise was repeated in the 2015 manifesto, and  failed again.  Theresa May now plans to include this target in the upcoming 2017 manifesto, hoping to succeed at the third time of asking.

Many people will struggle to believe Mrs. May, as during her time as Home Secretary, immigration continued to be in the hundreds of thousands, although she was ultimately working for Mr. Cameron, and therefore can’t take all the responsibility.

Whether this target is achievable or not will most likely depend on a Brexit deal which puts an end to EU free movement, something which will probably be opposed by Labour and the Liberal Democrats, who believe a ‘hard’ Brexit will be extremely damaging to the economy.
