Boris concerned over drying-up of cheap labour
"Today, Johnson played down his rift with the coalition over its planned cap on non-EU immigration, saying he was merely lobbying for limits to be "thought through" so businesses such as law firms and film companies were not prevented from importing the best talent". I've always found this argument to be disingenuous at best. I wonder how many rocket scientists (the Govt's proposed cap) this will adversely affect as opposed to, say, NMW domestic staff? I don't think for a minute that Boris actually believes this rhetoric.
