The main political parties have set out their stalls for education ahead of the General Election, but there’s one point they’re all missing, according to Nigel Farage.
Both Labour and the Lib Dems have promised to spend significantly more on education, while the Conservatives say they’re already spending a record amount.
However, speaking on his nightly LBC show, Nigel looked to Britain’s immigration numbers and asked why politicians continued to “ignore” the link between open borders and the pressures being put on our public services.
He said: “The sheer number of people coming into this country every year, the age of people coming into this country every year means that we have got more and more births per annum.
“By the time we get to five years old there is massive pressure particularly on our primary school system.”
