Sunak told to ignore ‘bourgeois liberals and greed-driven globalists’ on migration

At prime minister’s questions yesterday, Conservative MP Sir John Hayes – a close ally of the former home secretary Suella Braverman – called on Rishi Sunak to ignore the “guilt-ridden bourgeois liberals and greed-driven globalists” on migration.

Sir John asked: “Will he bring urgent measures forward to deal with legal migration? And in terms of the bill that he’s promised will ensure exactly in the form recommended by his own immigration minister?”.

Sunak responded: “I’m pleased to have the right honourable gentleman’s advice and support in all our measures to tackle both legal and illegal migration. As I said, … we’ll be bringing forward measures on top of the very significant restrictions that we’ve already announced on student dependents”.
