The European Commission on the plight of ‘migrants’:
Britain is not obliged to participate in any quota system as it has an exemption from matters concerning immigration and asylum, but the Commission delivered a withering put-down of the Home Secretary’s position.
Oooh, I bet that stung!
Its vice-president, Frans Timmermans, said: “I have the highest regard for British intelligence but I am not sure Theresa May had already read all the plans we have made, so I’ll wait for the British government to have time to appraise our plans. I wonder how anyone could maintain that this could make the situation worse. First of all, what will make the situation worse is doing nothing, maintaining the present system. If we then do nothing, we make the situation worse for people in trouble and lose credibility in the eyes of our citizens who have demanded we do something.”
And by ‘do something’, I suspect Frans means ‘Resettle them in the EU’, of course. Because that’ll be what the voices of the ‘citizens’ (as told by open border advocates) say, as far as the Commission is concerned.
The real citizens on the streets – the man on the omnibus/metro/tram etc – say something quite different to the activist mouthpieces.
As Labour found out in the recent election.
