E.U Borders.
« on: Mar 16, 2020, 05:00:22 PM »
it'll be interesting that the E.U is about to close its borders as a result of the coronavirus,  that means that illegal immigrants trying to cross the channel trying to reach the U.K will be greatly reduced,

its amazing that a virus has more effect than any deterrent we here in the u.k can use,

It is a sad way for those of us who were appalled at the whole concept of the Schengen Agreement to be proved right

I don't know what got into those politicians that agreed to Schengen, it is obviously so stupid.
Any surviving remainers have the rest of the transition period in 2020 to become rejoiners

Perhaps we should round up these illegal immigrants, put them in camps, and use them for testing an antidote to the virus. They should be made to do something useful.
No unjust system was ever broken or corrupt society changed by time servers and yes men who obeyed the orders of “legitimate authority”.

And even more infuriating for those of us who tried to get the UK out of the EU in 1975.

My husband heard on one news programme that Isis or whatever they call themselves now we're telling their terrorist people not to come to Europe!

The ones who are here under the radar will struggle if rationing is introduced. Perhaps the government will at last make some form of ID compulsory.

I do Crabby. i'm happy to produce my passport, driving licence or bus pass when required. I think a biometric ID card would be a big help to lots of people who get targeted as 'illegals' even though they aren't. ID cards would then be mandatory in getting a job, claiming benefits, using the NHS etc.  I struggle to understand the argument against.

Crabby, I also struggle to understand the labelling of anyone not white as illegals, asylum seekers etc.  I was with my friend when she was asked, quite aggressively, where she was from.  In her best Sheffield accent she told him! A woman who is ethnically 50% English, and culturally 100% Yorkshire!  She'd be happy with an ID card too.

She's a classy lady, well dressed, well educated, yet some low life, hard of thinking types think its ok to abuse her and others simply because they see brown = foreign.
