Nick Jefferies complains he can't find enough engineers. The 50-year-old chief executive officer of Acal spent "months of trawling, months and months and months," to fill 40 positions he badly needed to continue morphing the former British logistics firm into a provider of advanced design to defense, aerospace and energy companies. David Cameron, the Conservative Party prime minister, is trying to cut immigration – ranked in most opinion polls as voters' No. 1 concern, and stoked by strident tabloid coverage – any way he can.As an EU state, the U.K. can't restrict inflows from any of the bloc's 27 other countries except the newest member, Croatia. In his attempt to renegotiate the U.K.'s membership in the EU, Cameron unsuccessfully sought the legal tools to do so. The routes to entering the U.K., even for foreigners with advanced degrees and job offers, have been narrowed since Cameron was first elected in 2010 . The U.K. has eliminated a visa that allowed graduates of British universities to stay and look for work, imposed an annual cap on entries by skilled workers and forced foreigners transferred into Britain by their companies to leave after five years, with no route to staying.
