The British government are reportedly on the verge of handing to the EU “concessions on immigration” during the next phase of Brexit negotiations with the EU.
Looking at a report in The Spectator by James Forsyth: “Unfortunately, the European Union is about to take a wrecking ball to this carefully constructed compromise. The EU doesn’t much like its deal with Switzerland and is currently trying to pressure the Swiss into accepting changes. The idea of handing that kind of arrangement to the UK, and without free movement. Won’t appeal.
“The UK has at least held some things back for the negotiations. I understand that one paper circulated to senior Cabinet Ministers in recent weeks suggested that if the EU doesn’t bite on May’s proposals, Britain could offer concessions on immigration in an attempt to make them more palatable.”
It was clear that the British public unanimously voted to end Freedom of Movement after the UK had fully withdrawn from the EU, anything less is an absolute betrayal to 17.4 million people that voted for Brexit.
Brexit is looking more and more like it’s going to be in name only. The British people want mass-migration ended in a post Brexit-era, this is not up for negotiation.
