    Filippino nurses tend to be highly regarded in the NHS for their work ethic.

    It is totally acceptable since those countries don't offer their own nurses good enough conditions to stay - won't take long until UK nurses start leaving soon

    Yes, but they won't be called immigrants in stats - just nurses.

    Using the Trump playbook... make the nation such an undesirable, unfriendly place for foreigners they don't want to come here. (This genuinely happened with Mexican immigration)

    I've always wondered why the UK never implemented European Directive 2004/38 which basically states that since 2004, it has allowed governments to control movements of EU citizens as follows: allow EU citizens to freely circulate only for three months and then require them (should they want to stay longer) to show they are working (employed or self-employed), a registered student or have sufficient resources to support them self and comprehensive sickness insurance.

    Article 7

    Right of residence for more than three months. All Union citizens shall have the right of residence on the territory of another Member State fora period of longer than three months if they:
    (a) are workers or self-employed persons in the host Member State; or
    (b) have sufficient resources for themselves and their family members not to become a burden onthe social assistance system of the host Member State during their period of residence and have comprehensive sickness insurance cover in the host Member State; or
    (c) – are enrolled at a private or public establishment, accredited or financed by the host Member State on the basis of its legislation or administrative practice, for the principal purpose of following a course of study, including vocational training; and– have comprehensive sickness insurance cover in the host Member State and assure the relevant national authority, by means of a declaration or by such equivalent means as they may choose, that they have sufficient resources for themselves and their family members not to become a burden on the social assistance system of the host Member State during their period of residence.
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    also you could curb immigration in half just by banning people from outside of europe. Just like that, without upsetting 27 neighbours

    But to do that would require the government to do something, when it's a lot easier just to blame others.
