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.
