Presently all workers coming from outside the EU for 'high-skill' jobs must be able to speak English. According to the Telegraph Gordon Brown is considering imposing this rule on all non-EU migrants.
This is nothing new. Over a year ago Brown intimated that he is in favour of such a move.
What do you think? Is this a smart move by Brown to outflank the Tories and move Labour policy toward the middle ground or mere gesture politics?
