I have stated many times before that politicians are only ever interested in getting elected enough times to get their pension. That means that they will do whatever it needs to win the vote of the electorate. While we have a vested interest in immigration outcomes, never think everyone thinks the same way, the current mood of the electorate towards migration is ambivalent at best, if not outright hostile towards migration. A lot of electors(tax payers), know nothing about immigration, they couldn't care if the visa process cost $100,000 and took 10 years to process. It is a sad fact of life that there are just not enough votes in supporting positive changes in migration.
