    Leader of the Britain First far-right political party Paul Golding said that massive immigration will continue to surrender British sovereignty to the European Union.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik), Alexander Mosesov — Despite the promises made by the re-elected UK Prime Minister David Cameron on cutting immigration to the country, the situation will only get worse, leader of the Britain First far-right political party Paul Golding told Sputnik on Friday.

    The Conservatives have made a promise to cut annual migration to tens of thousands, identical to the one given ahead of the 2010 UK election. However, net migration to Britain reached about 300,000 in the year leading up to September 2014.

    "I think it will get worse. Massive immigration will continue to surrender our sovereignty to the European Union. Nothing will change," Golding said.

    The party leader added that no matter who — the Conservatives or the Labour party — won the 2015 elections, "the things would carry on with business as usual."

    The Cameron's Conservative party won the country's general election, held on May 7, with an absolute majority of 331 out of 650 seats in the parliament.

    Conservatives' immigration policy will also include tightening the student visa system, retaining a 20,700 yearly cap on the number of skilled migrants from outside the European Union and barring EU migrants from receiving tax credits and child benefits until they have worked in the country for four years.
