Like others in the political world, wedded to EU membership, Alan Johnson continues to write and spout what can only be described as utter tosh on the subject of immigration.
"We don't have an open-door policy. It is misleading to say we have got one or that we have ever had one. We manage immigration."
The government well may 'manage immigration' from those outside the EU, but for anyone born in the EU this country does have an 'open-door' policy. From whatever country one arrives from to live and work here, they are still immigrants. Hence, yet again, we have an example of a politician being untruthful.
Rather than attempt to write words of wisdom, perhaps Alan Johnson should revert to his previous 'day-job' and dcliver them!
