Boris Johnson leads his obedient new Cabinet in a recital of their policies as they give the green light to an Australian-style points-based immigration system from January 2021 and GUARANTEE lower immigration.
- Prime Minister Boris Johnson met with his new Cabinet in Number 10 this morning after his savage reshuffle
- Mr Johnson conducted a brutal shake-up of his top team yesterday as he promoted numerous loyal Tory MPs
- But the PM’s reshuffle was totally overshadowed by the bombshell resignation of Sajid Javid as Chancellor
- He quit rather than accept order from Dominic Cummings to sack his aides as Rishi Sunak became Chancellor
- New-look Cabinet today agreed to the introduction of a points-based immigration system at the start of 2021
Boris Johnson’s new-look Cabinet today agreed to the Prime Minister’s plans to introduce an Australian-style points-based immigration system at the start of 2021.
The PM’s freshly reshuffled top team met for the first time in Downing Street this morning and rubber-stamped the proposed post-Brexit border control system which the government has guaranteed will result in immigration going down.
However, Number 10 was unable to say exactly when overall immigration numbers will start to fall under the new rules.
A spokesman for the Prime Minister said: ‘Following discussion, Cabinet agreed the implementation of a points-based immigration system from January 1, 2021.
‘The system will be simpler and fairer and will not discriminate between countries and would return democratic control of immigration to the British people.
‘The PM stressed that we must demonstrate that the UK is open and welcoming to talent from across the world but the new system would end reliance on importing cheap, low-skilled labour – bringing down immigration numbers overall.’
