Shengen cracks start to show

There is no prospect of the Shengen arrangements being changed, despite the hopeful headline in the Mail this morning. Sarkozy's warning is designed to achieve two things; to move his platform to the right for the forthcoming Presidential run-off, and to put further pressure on the 'front line' states  - Greece, Spain, Italy, Malta - to contain immigration from sub-Saharan Africa, the Mahgreb and across the Adriatic from the east.

That the greatest immediate enforcement costs fall on the EU nations least able to afford them, and the greatest long-term threat is to the wealthy economies of the north, must lead inexorably to a sharing or widening of border enforcement measures. But Shengen isn't just the EU; both Norway and Switzerland are Shengen signatories. Nevertheless, watch out for proposals for an EU border control force operating without restriction across the Union.

"EU border control force". The excuses used by the EU to create military and controlling police forces is to be admired. As we so very slowly reach the plebs dense outer layer of ignorance and nurture an awareness of what's happening and planned for the terrible future of the world's peoples,so the NWO quietly place their defences in order.

European gendarmerie here we come.

Shengen? Back to default [interim/get out] - show them how to reach British shores, encourage and wave them through on their way north.

Actually we should, like Norway & Switzerland, be IN Shengen, and OUT of the EU .......

Sarkozy's warning is designed to achieve one thing only: his re-election.

As far as the Kommissars are concerned, the solution to any and every problem Europe faces is 'more EU/more centralised control' so of course this will be the response.

The sad fact is that populations who are angry at mass immigration and the failure to tackle it, will gratefully accept this 'solution.'

The UK should leave the EU because once someone gets an EU passport, it's immediate entry to the UK.

As usual, national governments are passing the buck over immigration, while not mentioning the EU.

Two things come to mind

1. This always happens just prior to an election. Once the election is over, its all forgotten, and its business as usual.

2. Immigration of alien cultures into Europe is a deliberate policy to break up any cohesion based on ethnicity or faith, and thus pose a cohesive threat against the EUSSR.


This is all sound and fury - the policy to dismantle Europe as a historic and cultural entity, is well into the last phase. I fear a civil war.

Unfortunately, I believe you're right, Raedwald.

If the US is anything to go by, these border patrols will be equipped with body scanners, will conduct body searches without "probable cause" and will move further and further inland.

The effect will be an enlargement of virtual martial law areas, where even free speech (or what remains of it) will be banned. Taking videos of these patrols will constitute an arrestable offence.

Blimey Raewald, where are you? Are you OK?

Dear Mr Raedwald

Our beloved UKBA has been split into a Border Force (not UK Border Force it seems) and who knows what, with effect from 1 March 2012.

Nothing 2 Declare have been trying to find this elusive 'Border Force' since that date, latest on 8 March.

Is this the UK arm of the EU Border Force?

Just askin'
