There’s no doubt that immigration is a big issue in the Brexit debate, and I realise that I am not on the same side as many Brexiteers. I want Britain to be in control of her own borders and to be able to frame her own immigration policy, but that doesn’t mean that I want to pull up the drawbridge.

Sam Bowman of the Adam Smith Institute has written a very interesting piece on free markets and free movement/immigration, so do read him on the subject HERE.

Sam’s position tends towards the more radical end of free market economics, but he makes important points, backed up with evidence. Immigration is an emotive subject and one upon which voters often feel ignored — voters in Brent may have a very different experience of immigration than voters in, say, Burnley or Boston.

I’ll be posting more on this topic soon.
