Reacting to David Cameron's long awaited speech on immigration UKIP Leader Nigel Farage has said: "Here is the Prime Minister using this word 'control' and totally deceiving the British people yet again. Because one thing is true: he has absolutely zero control over the situation. He cannot control immigration from the EU and has revealingly dropped his suggestions of a cap or an emergency brake on numbers coming in.
"He talks only about in work benefits and job seekers which will create a bone of contention for other EU member states or trades unions who may well decide to take the UK to the European Court of Justice. It's a cynical attempt to kick the issue into the long grass until after the election.
"I don't think a single person in Britain has bought into any part of what he has said today.
"If this was supposed to be the speech that turned the tide of Cameron's fortunes he may well wish he had never made it."
