"There’s an old joke: How do you know when a politician is lying? His lips are moving. So it is with this government’s supposed commitment to economic growth, and the ludicrous immigration cap that it intends to implement. The idea is so economically illiterate, so wilfully illogical, that it makes me wonder if the people proposing it understand that their policies will actually have an effect on people’s lives, or if they simply don’t care."
