Has David Cameron been misleading over immigration?

Labour Party

Before the weekend (Friday 10th Jan, 6:30pm) I appeared on Channel 5 News to discuss suggestions that David Cameron is playing politics with the Europe Question. The item followed accusations from Viviane Reding, among others, that UK politicians are guilty of adopting populist stances which distort the debate, in order to win votes. As always it was good to be on the programme, and I thought an interesting discussion was had between myself and Syed Kamall MEP. With the European Elections approaching this is an issue which is not going to go away, but I hope that as people begin to look at the Europe debate in more detail it will start to take on a more measured tone. You can read my views on the subject more fully in yesterday’s Round-Up.
