"Damian Green said Labour’s open door policies meant it became too easy for businesses to recruit migrant workers as a first option over British recruits." http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/immigration/8430001/Britain-is-addicted-to-immigration-warns-minister.html "To often over the past ten years it has been the first resort. Britain became addicted to immigration as a solution to a number of problems and we have to wean ourselves off that addiction. “It will be better for us all as a society if we do look first to the many skilled people who are employed in this country. “It was a policy driven by the previous Government that did allow everyone to have an easy option and allow both government and employers to do less training than we need.” amania - who said I was British?
