    This article seems quite confused. It bemoans the restrictions on immigration from outside the EU, but are we for one moment to believe that the situation would improve if we left? Would we suddenly see the UK government opening our borders to Asia or Africa or the Americas while maintaining open borders with Europe? Hardly. Indeed, the only time the UK clashes with the EU over immigration is in its attempts to further restrict it or to allow it to deport people into situations where they risk torture.
    The answer is surely to seek to improve the policies mentioned while defending the underlying principle that has allowed the free movement of people across an ever expanding continent — not a small feat in itself!
