And end to Freedom of Movement
Nov 21, 2018, 09:53
I realise there's a lot of UK folks have a deep-rooted problem with immigration (something Brexit really threw into sharp-relief).

But even those of you for whom that's the case, you must admit that Theresa May's constant (and clearly triumphalist) bragging about how she is "finally ending Freedom of Movement" and preventing EU citizens "jumping the queue" is just plain horrible.

I'm trying to imagine the reaction of the British media (and indeed the 52%) if Donald Tusk and Claude Juncker were to hold regular press-conferences in which, grinning, they delightedly assured the people of Europe than we can now relax having ended Freedom of Movement for the British on our continent. Imagine them sneering at British "queue-jumpers" retired in Spain (or just working hard in Germany).

The UK would *rightly* be appalled at that kind of attitude.
