Rishi Sunak, who is battling with Liz Truss to win the backing of the Conservative grassroots in his attempt to replace Boris Johnson, has announced plans for an annual cap on the number of refugees the UK accepts.
*yawns* Why should we believe you? Why hasn't such a cap been implemented already?
Meanwhile, other countries have woken up:
Denmark is to start demolishing parts of migrant ghettos and moving people elsewhere in a bid to put an end to ‘parallel societies’ that have led to high crime and social dislocation. The areas targeted by the policy are specifically where there are demographic concentrations of people with non-western backgrounds who are more prone to criminality and joblessness.
Too little, too late? Maybe. But they aren't stopping there:
Citizens from outside the EU, EEA or Switzerland will also be denied municipal housing support as will those with a criminal record.
Maybe the Tories could look to Denmark rather than the US for ideas, for a change?
