An essay is presented which examines the impact of immigration in the 2010 general election in Great Britain. The New Labour government reportedly opened immigration channels for students and certain workers, restricted asylum seekers and reduced undesirable flows. It states that immigration was important to voters but did not affect the election's results, although it undermined support for Labour and the Liberal Democrats. It also notes that older, more economically insecure, white working class voters voiced the most concerns on immigration.
