You can still see it

The first story on Monday's Newsnight was about the Government's intention to cap non-EU immigration. It remains on iPlayer till 11.19 pm on Monday, July 5. You can watch the whole programme here. Lord Pearson's contribution starts here.


  1. Many thanks for the link - very interesting interview. Lord P. pointed out the salient point - we cannot control our borders while remaining in the EU. This will only become an urgent issue when our jobless take to the streets. This could only happen if benefits become less generous.

  2. One can't help feeling that if the jobless were the kind that took to the streets they might have been the kind that got jobs.

  3. You have a very good point. How much will it take to overcome apathy?
