Many EU countries are suffering very high levels of unemployment and debt, the wages of the self-interested mercantilism of Germany and France. The people of Europe are crying out for solid measures, in short order, to tackle migration and the inability of the EU to deal with this adequately is indicative of the bankruptcy of the EU “project”.
At last the leaders of the EU are beginning to recognise, too late and too little, that economic migration is not a legitimate reason to allow the movement of people unless it is to the advantage of the host nation, does not place excessive demands on taxpayers and public services and takes place in numbers that can be integrated. Any other sort of economic migration used to be called invasion.
