So how are you going to do that then?

Well it’s squeaky bottom time again for the Home Secretary when it’s announced that the UK is powerless to prevent another wave of immigrants from the EU heading for our benefits rich shore. Unfortunately unlike the indigenous people living here she can’t just have the police arrest them all on suspicion that they ‘might’ commit a crime according to some dodgy intelligence.

Express.

MINISTERS are powerless to stop tens of thousands more Eastern European migrants heading to Britain in a new European Union borders shake-up next year, Theresa May admitted yesterday.
The Home Secretary warned the Government is legally unable to block Romanian and Bulgarian citizens from coming to the UK under an expansion of EU “freedom of movement”.
Instead, she vowed to curb access to benefits and NHS treatment for EU immigrants in an attempt at making Britain a less attractive destination for new arrivals.
Five-year-old quotas known as “transitional controls” are due to expire at the end of December 2013 as part of the enlargement of the EU’s single market.
It will give 29 million Bulgarians and Romanians the unrestricted right to live and work in the UK.

God alone knows how she thinks she can stop them using the NHS or getting benefits, they’ve already tried that in the past and had their knuckles rapped by human rights judges. Most of the time the NHS doesn’t ask for details on treatment, it simply goes ahead and does it anyway, hence the accumulation of health tourism cases.

Of course there’s one solution, though sadly the government is incapable of implementing it and that is simply to leave and throw out any non contributing immigrants from the EU. Not that the coagulation will actually do that, they’d rather wring their hands and whimper deary, deary me what shall we do. That unfortunately is the problem with having a bunch of EUphiles running the country some of them with their hands in the EU slush fund. They’d rather tell us they can’t legally do anything rather than implement a permanent solution and take control over our borders again rather than have them overrun by the EU.

Not that I can blame the Romanians or Bulgarians who want to come here, after all previous administrations here have shamelessly made it a virtual benefits goldmine for them and now jeer from the sidelines about how the current administration isn’t coping knowing full well they caused it.

Can we just leave? Please?

    Actually, there IS a way out of the problem.
    Imitate Norway & Switzerland … join Shengen & leave the EU.
    Problem solved.

      Agree with the general sentiment but I’m not sure that joining Shengen is going to help much.

      Given our HRA interpretations, this is still going to open our NHS and benefits to an enormous number of people even if EU law no longer applies, but I’m open to argument.

    Oh for the old days when the benefits office used to run out of application forms and promise to post one out instead…

    They are not just EUphiles, they are inexperienced babes who need Brussels to tell them how to run the country.
