“Leave Means Leave” brings out the pitchforks

The Guardian reports that a group happy to see the United Kingdom leave the European Union wants fewer immigrants entering the country.

The plan by the Leave Means Leave group was criticised by MPs who support a softer EU exit, with backers of the Open Britain group saying it would badly damage the economy and harm the NHS.

The proposal from Leave Means Leave – whose Tory backers include Owen Paterson, Dominic Raab, John Whittingdale and Gerald Howarth – follows a series of comments from ministers indicating Brexit might not significantly cut immigration.

I believe the term “hard right” is applicable here, no?
