Are they waking up? UK Home Secretary making sense

LONDON (AP) — Britain will never “in a thousand years” agree to a common European immigration policy to deal with the surging number of refugees fleeing to the continent, a top government official declared Tuesday.

Home Secretary Theresa May, the U.K.’s interior minister, told an audience at the Conservative Party conference that Britain should tighten control of its borders, admitting vulnerable refugees but keeping out those who simply want a better life.

She said other European countries should also toughen up their border controls, arguing that in the last few years more people had applied for asylum in the EU from Balkan countries – which have not seen war for years – than from war-torn Syria.

She said Europe’s immigration crisis “can only be resolved by nation states taking responsibility themselves – and protecting their own national borders.”

Common sense?

  1. Maybe they are satisfied with the Rot Uk model and don’t want to rock the boat. Tim Larkin got banned from air travel to the UK because he was teaching people self defense over there.

    Since Britain works on a parliamentary system, their seats or profiles are divided up between the ruling members of the party. The thing is, even if the top level MPs want to do something about this, if they have lost control of the bottom up hierarchies and cities, then all they can do is talk, unless they want to move the military to occupy the cities like the Irish Time of Troubles.
