...we'd have no legal or financial obligations towards all the immigrants attempting to get to Europe across the Mediterranean and they'd be Spain/Italy/Greece's problem, not ours. Discuss.

I think we would allow in a few hundred out of moral duty.

However, the point is, we would decide, not some foreign politicians.

You don't know much about the EU, do you?

EU should have a zero tolerance policy for these illegal immigrants coming into Europe... but then again the EU is ruled by unelected spineless liberals.

We would still have a humanist obligation to provide sanctuary to those fleeing for their lives, but yeah, we could tell people we didn't trust to take a hike.

Women and children and Christian/religious minority demographics could be given priority. As it stands Asylum seekers can actually sue the UK for not being blind when processing asylum applications, even though I think priority should be given to demographics who are soon to be completely ethnically cleansed from the Middle East.

Which is why we have boatloads of young Muslim men arriving at our shores, a recipe for disaster.

Even Farage wants to allow some of them in to the UK.

Why do you not agree with Farage? Is he a spineless liberal in your books?

Also - when you say "unelected spineless liberals", who exactly are you referring to?

Only if those fleeing for their lives were Irish, French, Dutch, Belgian or Norwegian.

If UK leaves EU, some UK citizens surely will suffer financially.
And other consequences are unpredictable. People should think about it thoroughly.

Well the Irish did, a couple of times. made a pretty good job of contributing where they went. Not ideal, but a shlt side better than the current demographic. Soon we will be seeing Europeans flee from their homelands in my opinion.

Pretty sure one, or two, or all, of the above have done the migration thing at on point. It is nothing compared to what's going on at the moment. The scale alone, this is the largest migration of peoples ever heard of outside of invasions......... in any other time period, that's what this would be considered.

Behave yourself son. The structure of the EU is more democratic than that of the UK.

We should install a turret and napalm defense system in the Mediterranean sea. Any migrants who cross the border into Italian waters will be decimated. It is necessary and will be a less costly and social issue for European governments. By eliminating the invaders we are actually showing a greater moral duty since a problem for the world is a problem and by removing the problem, you help millions.

1) who mistakes "loose" for "lose"?
2) how would we lose money if we save £40 billion a year?
3) how would we lose money if we would continue to trade with EU member states like iceland does?

I wouldn't say that, but I'd argue it's more democratic than the US. The only thing hindering the EU's democratic credentials is lack of public interest in what it does rather than their inability to have their voice heard.
