THE Sun has long campaigned for Britain to control immigration while welcoming those whose skills we need. The new Cabinet yesterday agreed how to make it happen.
A points system will assess each migrant’s talents. If they meet the threshold and have a job offer paying over an estimated £25,600, they will be let in.
Low-skilled immigration will be slashed.
Total numbers will fall.
This is what Britain voted for.
Even the promise of it has calmed anxiety over immigration since the referendum.
So it is incredible to see Labour still champion free movement, even outside the EU.
Even more so to hear immigration control branded “racist”.
It is literally the opposite.
We will no longer block skilled staff from India or Africa while admitting anyone from the EU.
Boris Johnson now has a Cabinet focused, as one, on forging our new path as an independent nation.
Unity of purpose seems to win elections.
It’s the best way to get results too.
Pay up, Harry
WHEN will Harry and Meghan settle their debt to Britain, give up their handouts and fund their own security?
They have sacked their UK staff, are closing their office and clearly have no intention of returning. They have potentially already begun adding to their millions by lecturing rich bankers.
Fine. But let’s stop paying them through the Duchy of Cornwall too.
It morally belongs to the nation.
Let’s see our refund for the Frogmore House refit.
The Sussexes cut their ties here. We should cut them loose too.
TOUCHED as we are by the House of Lords’ concern over journalism’s future, we do wonder if they have ANY self-awareness.
“Public trust in journalists has fallen,” says one peer. “The profession is not representative of the population.”
Excuse us? A Press read by millions is supposedly out of touch.
But not unelected peers who, after failing to thwart a democratic vote, consoled themselves with an inflation-busting pay rise.
Is there an institution more reviled or disconnected than the Lords itself?
The little Berc
MAYBE “Short Man Syndrome” was John Bercow’s problem all along.
A study shows that smaller footie refs dish out more yellow cards.
Bercow’s not a ref. Merely the author of a spiteful book shortly to be found unsold in charity shops.
But the portly little Napoleon was forever issuing yellow cards from his Speaker’s perch.
Now his nemesis Boris is top of the Premier league. And Bercow is relegated to the stands, alone with his grudges.
