Immigration on Newsnight just now

Davd Goodhart very sensible when talking about immigration on Newsnight just now.

Jonathan Portes is mistaken in thinking that immigration is good for the economy.  He omits to consider the depressing influence immigration has on public morale.  If the majority is worried and fearful and experiences feelings of hopelessness and lack of control the "feel good factor" will be depressed and the economy will perform less well than it might.
