Tories will keep their immigration target because it distracts us while they starve us

Theresa May, speaking before an invited audience, pretends to strangle an immigrant who has outstayed his (or her) welcome.

Who does Theresa May think she’s conning now?

We all know why the Tories want to keep their silly net migration target – don’t we?

It distracts us from the fact that they are rationing public services for the poor, in order to provide huge tax giveaways for the rich.

And it fuels bigotry, which is part of the Tory divide-and-rule agenda – of course.

On the subject of reduced immigration, here’s what Theresa May has managed to achieve, in government:

And here it is in sentences:

Finally, here is rare footage showing what it would be like if Theresa May were asked to explain her policy to a voter:

Theresa May has indicated that the Conservatives will again promise to cut net migration to the “tens of thousands” in their election manifesto.

Speaking in Harrow, she said migration levels were having an impact on public services and low-paid workers.

Asked if this meant the target – missed repeatedly since 2010 – could be hit, she said it was important to continue to aim for “sustainable” levels.

Other parties said the target was “artificial” and should be dropped.

    Jeez a lying Party with no integrity whatsoever. So everyone, well those with common sense, knows this is the first guaranteed Con lie that will never happen.
    May knows because nothing has happened in the past with this resident election promise, with such a vast gulf between lies and truth, undelivered for so many years she knows full well nothing will ever happen against the Cons….the sheeople will still vote for her despite this disgraceful failure ……practically all on her watch as Home Secretary. Good advert for her strong and stable mantra unfortunately not on her past performance…. she is going to be another totally useless non.delivery.

    Lies, Lies and yet more lies, but still people vote for them and against their own interests.
