A boy with a ploy rather than a man with a plan

Link title & comments on the article says it all really.

Did like one comment based on his "Call me Dave": -

"Call me useless" :-)

Ehm no, it has always been within the UK's power to deport EU migrants that come to the UK just for the welfare.

Why that has happened is not the EU's fault.

Free movement does not mean you automatically get the right to reside in another European country. Technically if you don't have a job or sufficient financial resources to make it in the country you want to move too, that country has the right to return you to your original country. The European rules are clear, its just that the UK chooses not to kick these people out.

You made a comment about this in the past but regarding Germany. Any idea as to why they didn't apply the laws & only now kicking up a stink?

No idea really. In this case its up to the countries themselves to decide how relaxed their policies are towards European immigrants.

Nope. If countries want to make it easier for people from other EU countries to come and live there the EU welcomes it.

Osborne: leaving the EU is "no longer unthinkable"

Up to 100 tory MP's set to defy "Call me Dave"

You mean like this...

Avoid Calais, truckers told

French reply: -
"Calais’ mayor Natacha Bouchart has called on the French minister to scrap British immigration controls based in France – a move that would open the floodgates to the UK – even if it ‘causes a diplomatic incident’." So no thought of treating a fellow EU member decently then?

Hmm, methinks time to return to doing some continental runs...

...I mainly hitch up to refrigerated units.

Haha, so the Conservatives are going to destabilize companies and corporations that are in favor of staying in the EU? Heh, sounds like a great plan to kill your own economy. Follow the party line or else....

I agree, it does sound like something Don Corleone would orchestrate.

Unfortunately, Camoron (yes, deliberate spelling) is anything but funny, unless one has a really weird sense of humour. Lets face it, the idiot has done more 'U-turns' than a 'learner' driver trying to find their way into and around London, with or without a Sat-Nav! The man is the epitome of a clueless 'toff' that doesn't know where his 'allowance' comes from (crooks, dressed as businessmen), or doesn't care! He has given new meaning to the phrase, Con Party!!! If I were him, I'd look for another job, PDQ!

It's going to be a close call for that BAFTA Award

Just wondering what other B/S do we have to endure before the General Election next year?
