I agree with you!
The statement I was replying to was that:
Imigration policy for nationals outside the EU is a matter for the UK government. If the electorate donít like the policy they have the opportunity to vote in a new government every 5 years.
Clearly the electorate do not feel sufficiently strongly about immigration for it to change their voting.
The fact remains that for whatever reason, successive governments have failed to tackle immigration from outside the EU, and Brexit will do nothing whatever to correct that problem.
