The UK is in the drivers seat, the more they act like it, the better for them, and yes, for the rest of us still stuck in the quagmire of the Brussels monstrosity.
WE’RE OUT: Government says NO to EU migrant quota demands as bloc struggles to cope
Mrs May had previously said she did not want the UK to be part of the Dublin IV arrangements
THE HOME office has confirmed Britain will not opt in to the EU scheme to relocate displaced migrants around the bloc.
The scheme concocted in Brussels would see host countries fined up to £210,000 per migrant if they fail to dole out enough residence permits to third party nationals.
But while the Prime Minister had previously said she did not want the UK to be part of the Dublin IV arrangements, Government officials have since confirmed the nation will not be involved.
In a statement Home Office minister Robert Goodwill confirmed Whitehall would not opt into the EU agency for asylum which will oversee the scheme, claiming the “functioning of the asylum system is a sovereign matter”.
Mr Goodwill said: “The Government’s view is that decisions on asylum systems were best taken at national level.
