Border Control Pretence Now Gone

Recommended Posts

The passing of the Fajon report shows that the UK does not control its own borders or immigration policy - all pretence is now gone, says UKIP's Gerard Batten.

Responding to the passing in the European Parliament of the Fajon Report, which gives EU entry visas to people from Bosnia and Herzegovina.

UKIP's Civil Liberties spokesman said: "The passing of this report shows that the UK does not control its own borders or immigration policy - all pretence is now gone.

"It is now third party states like Bosnia and Herzegovina which decide who can and cannot come to the UK on an EU Visa."

This proposal would extend the list of countries whose nationals do not require Visas for entry into the EU to Bosnia & Herzegovina and Albania.

It would therefore act as yet another step in the collapse of control of national borders since once they are in the EU and acquire rights of residence/work they will inevitably be able to enter any member state.

"Given that Bosnian President Izetbegovic gave a general amnesty to Al Qaeda terrorists in the 1990s, this report also increases the danger of Islamic terrorists gaining easy access to Britian. This is a very bad deal for British citizens," Mr Batten warned.

The report states that "the European Union is a strong supporter of the abolishment of the visa regime for all the countries of the Western Balkans. Every effort should now be made to deliver visa-free travel for Bosnia and Herzegovina and Albania as soon as possible.

The European Soviet Socialist State have finally got their way, Dave can`t do nothing except blow wind. ;)

The European Soviet Socialist State have finally got their way, Dave can`t do nothing except blow wind. ;)

Sorry but Batten is talking absolute twaddle.

The Fajon report could only recommend the inclusion of these two states in the 'white list' (i.e. for visa-free entry) of the Schengen Area which covers most of Europe but NOT the UK.

Not once does the linked article mention Schengen!

Even once nationals of those states have entered the Schengen Area - NOT the EU - they will still need visas to come to the UK, just as they do at present.

Of course you can argue that if they can get to Calais without bureaucratic problems, that makes it relatively easy to smuggle themselves in over the final hurdle - but Batten says nothing about that.

He also mistakenly suggests that once non-EU nationals have residence permits for one EU state they can travel to any other EU state without a visa. That too is false - even if they have a permanent, lifelong residence for the EU state where they live!

For someone who was presumably present at Thursday's vote at the Euro-parliament - and presumably was one of the small minority of 47 who voted against - you've got to wonder how well-grounded in facts his No vote was - as well as how well informed the other 46 naysayers were.

PS in future remember CTT to attach the link to articles you quote!

But like I say, it's just not worth reading - sounds like the worst kind of DE/DM distortion.

Funny these statements within articles are never challenged in the EP or by the Europhiles and Politicians here, don`t respond and nobody will notice is the motto. ;)

Did not Blair say that immigration from the new expanded EU would lead to around 20,000 new EU migrants a year, well we now know the rest is history. :rolleyes:
