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.

"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."
