    I see your plan; limit things to GB and when Ireland finds it has an influx of migrants they can all be sent to camp in the 'six counties'.

    I see in your profile that you are a vice mistress.

    Actually no, the Treaty is very much still the law (and was added to as recently as 2011 to allow the carrying of firearms). Yes it does cover ferries - the channel tunnel operations are covered by the Sangatte Protocol (signed 1991).

    Not my plan(?) - I am in favour of remaining in the EU...

    But if you are in NI, and the UK voted to leave, you're going to be in trouble...

    You do have to be careful with terminology Frank :rolleyes:

    These are the consequences of throwing open the borders to one and all, and then deciding it wasn't such a good idea after all...


    2.5 expected to enter the EU over the next four years. Really? So few? Yesterday it was 1 million, and I thought that was a bit of a conservative estimate. I'd say about 5 million.

    We need to take lessons from these countries! Once you let people in, it's very difficult to get them out again. They have to be removed by force! Oh, the inhumanity!


    I can't help feeling that, if the UK had used such tactics, we'd come under far more fire for use of force. Just look how nasty there EU countries are!

    I asked that a month or two back, he used to be to the tolerant, liberal side of me- now he's moved to the far reactionary right?

    The problem is that you're looking for a good one, there's loads of them that aspire to be mediocre.

    Not just the right of me but of the dear departed Sir H

    He wouldn't want it- according to a sign I saw on the side of a bus today, it's fallen.

    How about 'migrants with benefits'?

    This is what happens to decent people when they are forced to tolerate the intolerable. They snap! Look at Germany in the 1930's and the fallout from WWI and the Treaty of Versailles. Along comes a funny, little man with a comedy tache and promises the desperate people things will change. And he delivers. I wonder how many decent people became what they later looked back and regretted? People will only put up with so much. Decency turns to anger, hatred abounds and blood gets spilled. It appears many of our leaders have either learned nothing from history, or they choose to ignore it - at their peril! A lot of people in this country do not want mass immigration, and if it is forced on them, they will change. It's human nature/animal nature.

    I could ask a lot of you why you oukd be so crazy as to want the country overrun with migrants when you can plainly see what it is doing to other countries in Europe. Just don't be surprised when the elastic snaps. That would be jejune, after all. ;)

    Wanting out of the EU has little or nowt to do with your political bent.

    You align yourself with call me Dave and bum chum Osborne. I guess that makes you far right and reactionary BP.

    Yes the treaty is bipartite and it is agreed in an EU context, ie: that both states are EU partners.

    The Socialist government is deeply unpopular. The conservative Republicans now control the large Picardie-Nord-Pas de Calais region. The Republicans are the biggest opposition group and many Republicans and certainly the FN want the British to have their immigration controls on British soil not French soil.

    Have you ever read said "treaty" @silvaran (cc @FrankWolley )
    Feel free to look it up (though you'll have to know its official name first).
    When you do you might want to point out (or even quote) any mention of the EU.

    Much is made of this treaty and few seem to know its terms

    I've already explained the link to the EU.

    Clearly it went over your head...

    Not at all
    I just disagree with you.
    But feel free to answer the points raised in #56 when you can...... :p

    Apologies for reproducing a clip I have already posted on the Referendum thread, but it is so apposite.

    You might want to do the same with the relevant Protocols as well Frank
    Start with the Sangatte one
