In a chilling and perhaps portentous reminder, Home Secretary James Cleverly announced a 5 point plan to form a "protective ring" around immigrant health and care workers.
On announcing the measures he told the press conference that he would like cut annual immigration figures by 300,000 and stepping closer to the microphone said, "by any means necessary".
The measures are detailed as:
Ban health and care workers bringing family dependants, personal affects, memories, clothes, medical needs, aspirations to citizenship and shifty looks to the UK.
End companies being able to pay workers 20% less than the going rate for jobs on a shortage occupation list and insist they pay them 80% less and make them sleep onsite in what Mr Cleverly calls "Houses of Work". They will not be able to leave these houses until they have paid into the national coffers for 17 years.
Increase the annual charge foreign workers pay to use the NHS from £624 to £100,035 with a 60% surcharge going to national interests (The Conservative Party).
Raise the minimum income for family visas to £382,700 from £26,200, from next spring, all applicants will be assigned a cabinet member to work with on VIP, no question asked Government supply deals.
Ask the government's migration adviser to review the graduate visa route to "prevent foreigners learning too much".
Mr Cleverly has vowed to "do what is required of me by The Telegraph and The Mail" to bring down net migration and to fan the flames of the culture war.
Opposition leader, Sir Keir Starmer, has declined to comment until he hears what most people are saying.
Despite not quite getting off the fence his arse is apparently embedded on, Keir Starmer has irked the professionally furious by suggesting that the Government go after criminal smuggling gangs more than the small boats they put refugees in.
Tory tabloid cheerleader Clementine Carruthers – whose email signature includes the phrase "Keir Starmer: WOKE lefty lawyer, ENEMY of the people" – salivated 'How DARE he suggest the government goes after criminal gangs? Why target small business owners who are just trying to make a profit from human misery?'
'Unseaworthy small boats actually make for a better business model. Then the refugees need rescuing and it’s easier to deport them. That in turn generates the possibility of repeat trafficking business - and we Tories are pro-business, plus we need the non-existent boogeyman to whip up a racist frenzy come election time.'
People smuggler Gary Grimthwaite added 'Death, famine, war and conquest are all up, so business is good. Now, I do understand that it's important for Rishi Sunak to be seen to be doing something. However, we'd far rather he picked on the leaky dinghies we lease to our customers and not us. So, speaking as someone who literally trades in amorality and the desperation of those seeking a better life, I'll be donating to the Tories. Probably best they don't declare exactly where this money came from, eh lads?'
