Vince Cable is not discerning enough when it comes to migration and "pats everyone on the head", warned a migration expert.
Migration Watch's Alp Mehmet dismissed the Business Secretary's criticism of the EU migrant worker cap and suggested he was out of touch with ordinary voters.
The Vice Chairman of the migration think tank was critical of a relaxed attitude towards foreign workers and stood behind the cap.
"It is possible that we will need to do that [migration cap]...even putting a cap still means a hell of a lot of immigration."
