THE wealthy industrialists who fund the Conservative Party have reminded Theresa May that they are in charge of Britain’s immigration policy.
As the Tory leader unveiled a manifesto pledge to limit Eastern European immigration, bosses in the food, hospitality and construction industries, laughed and pointed out the link between cheap labour, profits and ‘donations to political parties’.
Sir Denys Finch-Hatton, who owns 25,000 acres of farmland, a building company and a chain of mid-priced hotels, said: “Like 9,000 Polish people, Mrs May works for me.
“I understand that she has to appease those who voted for Brexit in the belief that all the immigrants would be sent home, but I live in the real world where I’m in charge.
“I like a bit of ‘creative marketing’, but not as much as I like enormous amounts of money.”
A Tory spokesman said: “Will this be in the Daily Mail?”
