Sir John Major praises immigrants for 'guts and drive'

Sir John Major has praised immigrants for having what he called "the very Conservative instinct" of wanting to improve their lives.

His tone is in contrast to that used by present Conservative PM David Cameron.

Sir John was speaking in an interview with the historian Peter Hennessy for the BBC Radio 4 programme, Reflections, which will be broadcast at 09:00 BST on Wednesday 13 August.
