Speaking to Politico, Von der Leyen added: “And then I must say, I keep telling my children, you have to fix it.

“We goofed it up. You have to fix it.

“So I think here, too, the direction of travel, my personal opinion is clear.”

Asked if Sunak agrees with von der Leyen, the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “No”.

He added: “It’s through our Brexit freedoms that we are, right now, considering how to further strengthen our migration system.
