Daniel Hannan has always been a squish for Islam, though a great orator on individual liberty, freedom, he still doesn’t get it about Islam, his full throated support for Turkish entry into the EU was a warning sign to me, now he’s going squishy on free movement.
Note: I’m all for free movement as well, but these idiots are for open borders, two different,in my book.
What part of ‘Leave’ don’t these MPs understand? RICHARD LITTLEJOHN says Remain’s refusal to accept the referendum result shows contempt for democracy

The defeated Remain campaign were always going to be sore losers. They must not be allowed to get away with overturning the result of the referendum.
In refusing to accept the outcome, they have shown their innate contempt for democracy and aim to frustrate the clear will of the majority of the electorate.
They have become so used to getting their own way that their petulance is no great surprise. We should tell them to go forth and multiply. The people have spoken and our decision must be respected and implemented in full.
But while the graceless arrogance and temper tantrums of the Remain brigade were only to be expected, there are worrying indications that some leaders of the victorious Leave camp are starting to back-pedal, too.
Tory Brexiteer Daniel Hannan, one of the most consistently impressive anti-EU voices, showed the first signs of going wobbly during an interview on BBC2’s Newsnight.
He said the vote to leave and regain control of our borders did not necessarily mean that the numbers of immigrants coming to Britain would be reduced. Hannan suggested any new deal to retain access to the single market could also involve having to accept freedom of movement.
That would entail the Brexit campaign reneging on its promise to cut immigration to the tens of thousands. Challenged by presenter Evan Davis, Hannan tried to pretend that Leave had never said there would be a ‘radical decline’ in the headline figures.
