Immigration irritation

March 26, 2015

The UK wants to attract the best talent, but now, thanks to its disgusting immigration policy, this country is losing a fine academic (“Visa refusal is ‘pure madness’”, News, 19 March). I am ashamed to be a British citizen. I am losing a dear friend thanks to nasty, vindictive and petty “policies” that are aimed only at winning votes from Ukip and making cheap political postures of looking “tough” on immigration.
