In her speech at the CBI annual conference today, Theresa May will push ahead with her unpopular draft Brexit agreement and is expected to focus on the importance of immigration to the public, arguing that her deal will give control back to the UK. According to The Guardian, May will claim that: "Getting back full control of our borders is an issue of great importance to the British people”. While immigration was indeed a key issue during the Brexit referendum debate, a recent survey from Ipsos suggests that the prime minister might be overestimating the extent to which it is at the front of people's minds.
When asked to choose their top three worries, 25 percent of respondents in the UK included 'immigration control', making it only the fifth most common answer. being fretted over by a larger share of people is healthcare (38 percent), crime and violence (32 percent), poverty (32 percent) and terrorism (26 percent).
