Letter 125: It's transparent this government has an immigration problem it wants to hide

"Dear Dave,
I'm going to ask you a question (no, not about domestic help). If you could choose, which would you say is the more embarrassing; that immigration has little effect on unemployment, or that Downing Street has been blocking the civil servant report showing this

Tricky choice though it is, I'd say the latter. Now we know immigration has little effect on unemployment, some good can come form the knowledge.

The misinformation can stop, if only for a little while.

As a voter, I'd say blocking the report concerns me most. You yourself said that trust in politicians is important and I share your belief. So when searching a little deeper, I was dismayed to find six more reports that the Huffington Post say you've suppressed, here:
Transparently, you have a problem.

Yours, etc"
