“Cameron’s latest plea on immigration is the most disingenuous yet from a rattled Tory leader. With UKIP’s poll ratings back on the rise and the election only two weeks away to claim that the Tories can be trusted on immigration after 5 years of abject failure is taking the electorate for fools, and they are not fools” said Steven Woolfe MEP the UKIP Migration Spokesman.
“Instead of the 10’s of thousands that Cameron promised to restrict net immigration to we have seen over half a million net in the past two years alone, 210,000 in 2013, 298,000 in 2014.
“Cameron has failed and failed again, and yet he has the brass neck to think that people will believe him that he has a grip. The only thing he has a hold onto is the fantasy that he can do anything significant to control our borders.Continue reading...

He has just wanted to go out on some sort of high and hasn't been able to find that high.”
UKIP Leader Nigel Farage said: “Reports that senior Tory donors are suggesting that the Conservative Party campaign is in disarray are of no surprise to me.
"Mr Cameron has failed to capture the imagination of the electorate with his party’s empty promises, and he has focused almost entirely on negative, American-style campaigning.
"In fact, on the back of Mr Cameron begging for UKIP voters to vote for his party, what we are seeing is quite the opposite. Voters appear to be increasingly impressed with UKIP's costed manifesto, including independently audited proposals on controlling immigration, increased funding for our NHS, and bringing forward a free and fair referendum on European Union membership.
"As this election campaign draws to a close, I would be unsurprised to see UKIP's vote share increase, and I am increasingly bullish on the positive impact we can make on May 7th."Continue reading...
