Come in, the water’s fine!
Thanks to Gaia for the following report from EU Referendum, concerning the “great passport giveaway” going on in some countries of the EU. In the European Union, there’s no such thing as a secure border, or even a stable one, it’s more like a welcome mat with with “Walmart style greeters” hand out passports. KGS
EU REFERENDUM: Something which is finally going to blow apart the vile construct that is the European Union is just beginning to emerge.
This is the news, offered fairly low-key at the moment, that EU member states are exploiting passport loopholes that potentially give nearly five million outsiders, mostly from Europe’s poorest countries, the coveted right to live and work in the EU.
And, of course, once they are inside the EU borders, they have freedom of movement and, eventually, unrestricted freedom of establishment. This means they can come over here and sponge off the over-generous welfare system which seems to favour immigrants above all else.
Now this is being given the Daily Mail treatment, and it is obvious that The Boy can do absolutely nothing about it, for all the bleating about immigration, the brown sticky stuff will be flying off the rotating air movement device in industrial quantities.
At the heart of this scam, which is making a complete mockery of our immigration policy – more so than it already has – are two countries, Romania and Bulgaria. They are handing out passports to ethnically linked groups or minorities outside their borders. Now Hungary plans to do the same, as of January.
The main beneficiaries are citizens of Moldova, Macedonia, Serbia, Ukraine and Turkey – about 4.7 million people with living standards at a fraction of the EU average. All are eligible for EU citizenship under passport giveaway programs.
And it gets worse. Others outside Europe, looking to escape hardship at home, are also lining up. Spain enacted legislation in January 2009 giving even the grandchildren of Spaniards whose ancestors left due to political or economic hardship caused by the Civil War the right to obtain passports from Madrid – and the response has been huge.
