Cyrus Kabiru should have been in Edinburgh next week. He is one of 19 people to be given a TED global fellowship, marking recognition of his emergence as one of Africa's most inventive artists. But he has been barred from Britain. The organisers say such problems occur time and again with Britain. I hear similar complaints from musicians, angered at being prevented from performing here. They are among higher-profile victims of our official hostility to foreigners; a legacy of a stance on immigration devoid of common sense. And it is getting worse. This week, Labour is re-engaging with immigration. So yesterday we saw Shadow Home Secretary, Yvette Cooper, apologising for her party's failure to introduce tougher controls while in office. This is an important moment. Here is a party that had a Home Secretary who talked of Britain being "swamped" with migrants and a PM who borrowed the language of the British National Party. At the last election, it had the most hostile manifesto on the subject. Yet it feels compelled to say it has been too weak.
