A top peer and celebrated entrepreneur has blasted Theresa May’s immigration target as “economically illiterate” as he spoke of the “appalling” racism he has received following the “wretched” Brexit referendum.
Lord Karan Bilimoria, founder of Cobra beers, said “anti-immigration sentiment is like never before”, and revealed he has been told to “go back to India” since the vote.
The cross-bench peer’s withering criticism came as the Prime Minister was due touch down in India for a three-day trade mission.
Lord Bilimoria, who is President of the UK Council for International Student Affairs, took aim at May wanting to cut net migration from more than 300,000 to 100,000, and warned of her previous “very negative messages” towards migrants when she was Home Secretary.
