It is little wonder that the Migrant Integration Policy Index has found Britain to have the least family friendly immigration rules in the developed world when we have a government that says “breastfeeding is a lifestyle choice” to justify the deportation of the Filipino mum of a British baby or their claim that at the ages of two and three, children are young enough to readjust to life without the parent the government wants to keep out.
