Share via Email Border control at the immigration desk at Heathrow airport. Duped by our secular faith in universalism and equality, immigration lawyers — and, allegedly, our counterparts in the civil service — are foolishly working to undermine the social democratic state that we hold dear.
We care "more about people in Burundi than Birmingham".
We are widening the scope of human rights law to the detriment of the country. We naively believe borders should be abolished.
We have no economic analysis of the situation though we are supposed to be of the leftindeed, it "must seem like a crime" that more money is spent on the NHS than overseas development.
The upshot is that a truly progressive attitude would be one that limits migration into the UK, in order to preserve social cohesion here while stopping the brain-drain of productive persons from developing nations, to the detriment of their home country.
We have, he claims, lost sight of our obligations to our immediate citizen neighbours in our clamour to help foreigners, to whom we properly owe much less. This is based on a very selective reading of government policy on immigration under New Labour, which was in fact based on a broadly utilitarian approach to "managed migration" as a source of labour and short-term economic growth.
The government deliberately did not take a rights-based approach to migration, which is where Goodhart has confused matters. Growing numbers of people flowing over borders, legally endorsed by government, does not actually equate to "opening the doors".
The opposite is the case, in the sense that as the immigration system expanded, the need for stronger and more restrictive approaches to those deemed to be here illegally grew alongside it. This is perhaps where the true motivations of idealistic young lawyers come in, and where the picture becomes more complex than Goodhart assumes.
For example, those who are at risk of persecution in their home country properly have a right to seek protection, a point that Goodhart does not seem to deny. That refugee law exists is not a causal factor in the economic immigration policy of the government, and the two things should not be conflated for political purposes.
Similarly, it is important that British families have the right not to be broken up by deportation law.
Then there is the unlawful use of immigration detention, often imposed on the mentally ill or vulnerable with devastating psychological effect.
Having said that, I do believe that there is an economic analysis of the ethics of fighting for migrant rights. Put simply, economic migration, legal or illegal, is now a permanent feature of the world in general.
The rise of mass migration has happened in the context of "globalisation" — or, more accurately, neoliberalism. Globalisation does not describe a particular worldview, it is rather the context of contemporary economic life.
The IMF has systematically imposed neoliberal economic policies in countries around the world, forcing privatisation and liberalising domestic markets. In economic terms, there is no clear evidence that immigration into Britain is a threat to the welfare state, as Goodhart fears. There is, however, substantial evidence that the greater threat comes from the forced imposition of market fundamentalism by ruling elites, a policy that is alive and well in our present government.
What we are experiencing at home, in the destruction of the welfare state and the mass privatisation of what public assets remain, is exactly the same economic shock treatment previously imposed on developing countries around the world.
It is now our turn to "pay our debts". This is the real crisis, of which mass migration is a symptom, not a cause. The solution is not going to be found by turning against the victims.N-back is a kind of mental training intended to expand your working memory (WM), and hopefully your intelligence (IQ 1)..

The Levy Economics Institute of Bard College is a non-profit, nonpartisan, public policy think tank. The thesis of this article is that Goodhart’s theory of ratio decidendiwas a response to two major intellectual trends that were in full bloom in the first part of the twenti- eth century, and which threatened the intelligibility of the concept of ratio decidendi.

I’d not seen Goodhart talk in person before, but his thesis — that immigration and multiculturalism lies behind the collapse in social trust, community identity and faith in institutions.
