Concerns about immigration?

We’re forever told that it’s unfair to be vocal about the strong xenophobic messages from some people in favour of Brexit.

I do accept that not all 17.4M who voted Brexit did so out of xenophobia or paranoia. But you can’t have it both ways. You can’t claim that the strong xenophobic message is a fringe voice amongst those advocating Brexit vote one minute and then claim that authoritarian measures against foreigners are fine because “it’s what people voted for.”

Because the vote was “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?” not “Do you have a problem with foreigners?”
