Where is Lynton Crosby when you need him?

Amazing what the Vote Leave campaign is being let away with. Boris Johnson in 2013 (via The National) --

"There are so many people from the UAE in the Knightsbridge and Mayfair areas that over the summer I have the honour to be the mayor of the eighth emirate," he said in a speech before the British Business Group.

That's what immigration means to Boris -- city states which can admit whoever they want, and by any modality (not least, "guest" worker).

Put another way, the Vote Leave pitch on immigration is that we must admit fewer of the 500 million people living near to the UK so that "we" (never specified who that is) can selectively admit more of the remaining 7 billion people in the rest of the world -- and that will result in less immigration than at present!
