Migrant rush means no time to waste for Brexit

HOW worrying that for every extra day it takes to complete Brexit hundreds more EU immigrants will be moving into Britain.

illustrates starkly that all those who are delaying or trying to derail are actually working against the national interest.

Whether it’s those taking action in the Supreme Court or those in Parliament who wrongly believe that they know best what’s good for the future of our country, they are all making matters worse.

Although some, especially the misguided leader of the Labour Party, would argue perversely that unfettered immigration is good for Britain.

However tricky the planning, however sapping the negotiations, however painful the realisation that we might just have to walk away with no deal at all, Theresa May must not hesitate to do what the majority voted for.

As Shakespeare put it in Macbeth: “If it were done when ’tis done, then ’twere well it were done quickly.”

.

She has seen already how quickly he is acting, so she should take a leaf out of his book and let nothing – absolutely nothing – stand in her way.

With Ukip leader Paul Nuttall fighting Labour in the Stoke-on-Trent by-election she will see Corbyn’s party sinking to new lows.

And if she needs to call a general election in April or May to get an even stronger mandate for Brexit then she should not hesitate. Every day counts.
