More polling from YouGov shows that there is big public support for the Conservatives and Labour to put in place a more strict migration policy, something that will be possible once Britain exits the European Union and ends open borders.
When asked about the Conservative government’s migration stance, 44% of Brits say the Tory stance isn’t strict enough. That includes a majority, 51%, of working class voters and 70% of Leave voters.
Interestingly among young voters aged 18 – 24, around the same number say they want a stricter Tory migration policy (23%) as say they think the Tories are too strict (26%).
When it comes to Labour, a huge 48% of Brits don’t think they would strict enough on migration, while a pitiful 3% think they would be too strict and just 24% say they would get the balance right.
It follows on from other YouGov polling that shows a clear majority, 63%, say levels of migration into the UK are too high.
Across the board, the British public want a tougher stance from politicians when it comes to bringing down immigration to sensible levels. Post-Brexit, there are no excuses.
