Nigel Farage: Immigration will be the defining issue of this EU referendum campaign

The results of Ipsos-MORI’s new poll are astounding – yet unsurprising. They describe the real concern that the majority of British people have for uncontrolled immigration: half of the respondents rank it as one of their biggest worries, compared with just over a quarter who said their greatest fear was the economy.

It is particularly interesting that this concern transcends political ideologies: both Labour and Conservative supporters admitted it was their number one issue, demonstrating the disconnect between the old parties’ base support and their elected representatives.

    Gosh, I am surprised.

    Funny how an influx of Romanian beggars, African economic “refugees” and French tax evaders will focus the minds of the population.

        That makes no sense whatsoever, Skippy. WTF are you talking about? Oh, right. It was another stupid comment from the Keeper Of The Well Of Stupid Comments.

      Yes, that is most peculiar.
