This news was sneaked out by immigration minister, Caroline Noakes, in a Written Ministerial Statement to Parliament on Monday. Two weeks ago, the Brexit Secretary, David Davis, visited Croatia and held a meeting with Prime Minster Andrej Plenkovic. He asked for free movement of his people and Mr Davis duly granted it.
At the February Strasbourg session of the European Parliament, Mr Plenkovic, addressed the European Parliament, damning the 17.4m people who voted for Brexit, saying: “The UK’s exit is a result of populism and a campaign of disinformation”.
He insults the British people’s intelligence but he’ll be very welcome in the corridors of Brussels, by surrendering his country’s hard won sovereignty, and insulting the British. He’s just paid his first club fee. Perhaps he doesn’t remember communism? He’s just joined the biggest undemocratic racket since communism.
In the European elections in May 2019 he will find more people to insult because the populists will return to Parliament with more MEPs, more Euroscepticism, from the right and left, some of whom also want to leave the sclerotic club.
Why did David Davis agree to Croatia’s free movement? This announcement was sneaked out during the Brexit secretary’s capitulation to Barnier while the foreign secretary is running around embarrassing our country by likening Russia’s World Cup to Hitler’s 1936 Olympic Games.
We did not vote to open our borders to another 4.28m foreigners. May’s government are truly a sham and dishonest negotiators.
