Consequences Of Brexit [Part 9] Read First Post Before Posting

Vaati

Let me make this perfectly clear - any personal attacks will get you a suspension. The moderating team is not going to continually issue warnings. If you cannot remain civil and post within forum rules then do not bother to contribute.

 

In addition to remoaner we are also not going to allow the use of libdums or liebore - if you cannot behave like adults and post without recourse to these childish insults then please refrain from posting. If you have a problem with this then you all know where the helpdesk is.

Michel Barnier has suggested a halt on EU immigration for up to five years, as immigration is not 'functioning effectively' and said that links between immigration and terrorism do exist.

Isn't this the 'taking control of our borders'  rhetoric that got anyone on the Leave side who suggested it immediately branded a xenophobe?

I was speaking to a Belgian citizen yesterday who is working in the UK.  He thinks the UK did the right thing in leaving the EU and made comments about the negative impact of immigration on his own country due to freedom of movement.

I hope you directed him to the nearest port! Brexit means brexit!

Meh, one of the Chief reasons I voted remain 5 years last Thursday ago was because unlike a LOT of leave voters (IMO) I don't have an axe to grind against immigrants.

 

I just can't do Business with Foreign call centres because they don't understand my strong local accent.

But surely there's never been unlimited immigration for non EU citizens to either pre or post Schengen area.

Doesn't seem to be a concern for the vast majority of Belgians, overwhelmingly positive views of the EU, EU membership and the Euro...

 

...one of the 9%? :hihi:

As it was Russia Today...

 

Barnier was talking about  NON EU immigration into France.

He's believed to be seeking to run for President  in the 2022 elections

Plenty of selfie ops with Disney characters! And I have a good camera with a 32 Gig memory card.

Some Brexiters are fond of saying 'If you want to live in the EU so much why don't you move there?'. Perhaps some of the 93% said to him 'If you want to live in a country outside the EU so much why don't you move there?'

Clearly they're not that stupid, only working in the UK ;)
