Brussels on Wednesday threatened to stop Britain deporting migrants unless it agreed to accept “quotas” of migrants, something which could see the UK forced to admit 90,000 refugees.
If Britain refuses to accept the quota, the EU has said the UK will no longer be able to use the Dublin Regulation – the rule which states that migrants must seek asylum in the first European country they arrive – to deport foreigners illegally entering the country.
Yes, yes, we know it’s settled law, we also know that’s how international law works. But bugger that, shut up and do what we tell you.
I know we’re all supposed to be a bit more intellectual about this, meant to think things through, consider carefully the pros and cons of membership and so on. But seriously folks, fuck’em, sideways and the horse they rode in on. Let’s leave.
