In CityAm today Matthew Sinclair points out that although Cameron did the right thing after Merkel triggered the migrant crisis, there is a massive down side for Remain.European leaders are now desperately trying to reverse course and adopt the kind of approach Cameron was castigated for. It will be much more difficult now. They are relying on a deal with Turkey which rewards its government with cash and other concessions. The deal could require European border forces (or maybe militaries) to undertake the ugly task of evicting large numbers of refugees who thought they had made it to the promised land.
Cameron has been vindicated for his stance over migrants at that time, but he has destroyed his claim that Remain will maintain the status quo. Staying in the EU means a far bigger amount of EU integration and now EU Law supercedes British Law. We would be helpless whatever they impose on us, with democracy gone.
CityAm concludes: It would be quite reasonable to instead conclude that we are going to be increasingly uncomfortable with the changes made to address the Schengen and Eurozone crises, which we have been fortunate enough to avoid. We might be better off leaving and providing what help we can from outside.
Update: The Daily Telegraph reports that the Government has concealed the true scale of immigration. It is believed to be twice what the Government are pretending it is. The figure might be 2.25 million.
