Forget the f-bombs, the Tories can’t even win the argument on immigration with themselves

“If they don’t like barges then they should f*** off back to France.”

If you hang around near right-wing politics, you’ll hear this sort of thing all too often. I’ve been at the “immigration panel” at the Ukip conference when men in the crowd have stood up and shouted “Send them back! Send them back!”

I once went door knocking with Jacob Rees-Mogg when a man in the street bounded up to him with a copy of The Sun tucked under his arm. On its front page was the latest misery from the Mediterranean migrant crisis of 2015 and the man told him, “I probably shouldn’t say this but I’m glad they’re drowning. Better that than them coming here.”
