    'It's a sham': IDS says the chances of kicking out jobless migrants after six months were 'close to zero' – and claims Cameron KNOWS it

    A law the Prime Minister relies on to claim he can control EU immigration is a sham, says the former Cabinet minister who was in charge of implementing it.

    Government officials told Iain Duncan Smith the chances of removing an EU citizen from Britain if they do not get a job after six months are ‘close to zero’.

    David Cameron has repeatedly cited the rule in referendum debates as a reason why the public should not feel worried about voting Remain.

    But yesterday Mr Duncan Smith lifted the lid on how Whitehall knows the law – which has not removed a single jobless migrant so far – will never work.

    He said officials told him that migrants can easily circumvent the regulations. And, in any event, the Home Office admitted it did not have the staff or the ‘capacity’ to enforce it.
