Nicholas Soames was questioned on the new Tory immigration policy on Radio 4's Any Questions programme. He revealed that the new limits on asylum applications would be flexible and that 'were there to be a great disaster... we would take in people'
This really shows that the new policy - for which he admitted that the details have yet to be worked out - is about cheap political gains.
Ironically, Tory Trouble reveals a story in the Evening Standard that the Conservatives imported election 'supremo' Lynton Crosby would not qualify for a visa under the Australian system. What - there's nobody in the country to take on the task of getting the Tories into government, so they have to use immigrant labour? It could just be that nobody else wanted that particular poisoned chalice.
