Hardening stance of the Commons towards Brexit

The continuing pursuit of nationalism is damaging the future of immigration in the UK. The noises around the Houses of Commons reverberate with the sound of MP's wanting to commit to the "will of the people" by turning up the extremity of Britain's withdrawal from the European Union. Even in the face of growing evidence that immigration is good for the British economy, politicians desperate to ensure that their careers aren't lost in a sea of ultra-nationalism are clinging on to the idea that the referendum result means that all so-called "Brexiteer's" want a "hard-Brexit".

Polling ignored

The fact that studies are being ignored is one of the more worrying results of last year's referendum. Politicians that are afraid of bringing any common sense to the table are ignoring the elephant in the room, the potential that perhaps a "hard-Brexit" is not what people want at all. This notion has been played out in many respected opinion polls that suggest that feelings towards "Brexit" have softened with the general public, almost to the point that a "remain" vote would now be the likely result if the referendum was held again. The notion of a second vote was offered up as a manifesto pledge by the Liberal Democrats at the last general election and was roundly ignored by the other parties.

Economics ignored

The studies that show a net benefit of inward migration to the UK has also been shunned. The lack of willingness shows just how scared politicians are of facing the potential backlash against 52% of the public who voted for Brexit. The government, in particular, appears to be taking a curious approach considering how many government ministers are "remainers". Though this approach is likely to be more about securing their falling vote share than any actual concern as to what the public believe.

Inflammed language

The use of the word betrayal has become a by-word for the "brexiteer's" in Parliament. The use of this inflammatory language has been designed purely to dampen any ideas of softening the government's approach to Brexit negotiations. This language will not be pleasant to immigrants who are already here or are looking to come to the country in the near future.

These problems are likely to settle but the uncertainty around the issue of immigration is likely to rumble on and become a political football. In the meantime, it appears to not have affected actual immigration policy in the UK and the future is still bright for those looking to move to the UK.

"Anna Foley was the lawyer helping my partner obtain an EEA EFM visa. She was outstanding. Handling the case with constant correspondence over a lengthy, lockdown delayed 7-month application process. Her expert advice guided us successfully through some difficult times as a result of COVID-19. Some of the best service I have received for any service ever! Often replying to emails late at night, offering to send additional correspondence to the home office and going above and beyond in handling our case! Well done and thank you Reiss Edwards and thank you Anna!!".
