Panic and Fear; European leaders want to abandon Greece due to the migrant crisis, the idea of creating an inner Schengen free travel area is an act of desperation, the situation can only be remedied by tough action, the political class need to say migrants will be deported back across the Med or Europe will be plunged into violence on its streets
Lots of people come up with lots of different ideas, the unfortunately thing is that an ‘idea’ that creates another problem to solve a set of circumstances isn’t really a good idea at all.
During the migrant crisis, I said that border controls and checks needed to be established right across the EU. It was fairly obvious early on that the Schengen agreement was to become unworkable, and would be effectively dead at some point. The situation across Europe has markedly deteriorated to such an extent that ordinary people, running businesses across the EU have decided to implement a policy of migrants not welcome.
In the entertainment sector such as clubs and bars, migrants have decided this is a place to sexually harass women, even to the extent of using ‘date-rape’ drugs on them. In Germany and Denmark, clubs and bars have started the process of banning migrants. What I wish to put across is that Europe is heading towards chaos and violence, the flare ups of incidents can be seen in the online media by alternative media, the mainstream media is still making a pled to emotion to ‘guilt trip’ people into following their agenda.
Paris attack, Cologne sex attacks, murder in Sweden and a huge list of incidents leave little room for understanding while nothing is done to address the situation.
I have said it before and I will say it again, German Chancellor Angela Merkel must go.
Some time ago, the idea was floated that there should be what some people called an ‘inner’ Schengen area within the EU involving about 6 or so countries. The idea is a bad idea because the problem of the migrant crisis has already travelled to these countries. It seems some of the political class want to throw Greece to the wolves as more migrants pour into Europe. To that end the rest of the continent to fortify its northern land borders with fences and troops; incidentally you will know I called for military action right at the start.
We need a naval presence in the Med to turn round migrant boats just outside territorial waters of Africa; ideally this should be done in conjunction with countries which border the Med.
Greece is a member of the EU, it is also a member of NATO; we cannot allow Greece to be sacrificed for a scheme which would be doomed to failure even before it gets off the ground. People talk about fences, what is needed is a permanent wall, fortified on both sides by troops. The desperate plan has been hatched by Belgium, Austria and Sweden, who which to lay blame on Greece of not doing enough to secure its sea border with neighbouring Turkey. Given the scale of the problem, Greece has been engulfed; to lay blame to Greece is nonsense. Where was the offer to have Belgium, Austrian and Swedish military support available to the Greek Government?
Austrian interior minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner said:
“If we cannot protect the external EU border, the Greek-Turkish border, then the Schengen external border will move towards central Europe. It is a myth that the Greek-Turkish border cannot be protected. The Greek navy has enough capacities to secure this border. It is one of the biggest navies in Europe.”
Navies run on money, and the military isn’t run on a shoestring budget, what is coming out of the mouths of some European leaders is panic fuelled hysteria because voters aren’t just turning against the migrants; they are also turning against the political class who have overstepped the mark. In an earlier post I commented on how Dutch politicians had to flee for their safety in a Dutch from an angry mob of town’s people.
Swedish interior minister Anders Ygeman said:
“We have seven countries with border controls. In the end, if a country doesn't live up to its obligations, we will have to restrict its connections to the Schengen area. If you don't have control of your borders, it will have consequences for the free movement.”
Jan Jambon, Belgium's interior minister, added his support for kicking Greece out of Schengen.
Schengen as it stands now, doesn’t exist; and ‘inner’ Schengen is a pipe dream, and a dangerous one at that, Isis already has placed terrorists in Europe, and these quacks want to give them the ability to travel about freely.
Does that make the slightest bit of sense to you?
All 28 member states should introduce border controls, even if they are not seen as front line states in the migrant crisis. We need a new EU border identification card scheme; migrants should be put into detention camps, those who have families should be strictly vetted to see if they can be placed into society. Anyone who breaches conditions for criminal activity should be returned to a detention camp, serious criminal activity should mean expulsion back to their home country.
As well as Belgium, Austria and Sweden, two other ‘hotspots’ are backing the idea of ‘inner’ Schengen, Germany and Denmark have climbed onboard this idea, which cannot work, this is the worst crisis since WW2, and the solutions put forward by some Europeans are risible.
5,000 migrants are pouring into Europe every day over the so-called Balkan migrant corridor of Greece, Serbia, Macedonia, Croatia and Slovenia, rather than allowing them to simply walk through; they should be stopped by the military. The quota system idea floated by Angela Merkel has like a ship ran aground very quickly with other countries, the Poles becoming the latest to take an increasingly tough stance on migration. The stance is similar to the line taken by Hungary which built a 110-mile fence to keep people out. France also is now in favour of tougher border security after it emerged that Islamic State terrorists posing as refugees to exploit free movement zone to travel to Paris.
Can you blame the French?
There is going to be more terrorist attacks in Europe, ‘inner’ Schengen helps to facilitate this activity, as I said previously, no migrant registered in an EU country should be legally allowed to travel within the EU. EU Governments should also not issue money to those already here, this issue needs addressed and discussion to take place.
Billionaire businessman George Soros who is known to dabble in politics warned that the EU is on the "verge of collapse". His taken is based on what he calls the muddled response to the migrant crisis by EU leaders.
So, we have a Billionaire businessman George Soros and at the other end of society George Laird coming to the same conclusion, but it should be noted Soros didn’t get there first.
I have laid out 5 measures to assist the EU in previous posts, more are needed, but with the EU leaders seeing the collapse of the European Union unfold in front of their eyes, their time and grip of power is also coming to an end.
They have overstepped the mark; ordinary people are turning away from them, as things worsen, I expect calls for the removal of Merkel inside Germany to increase significantly. Whether she goes because of an ‘event’ or series of ‘events’ remains to be seen, one thing is certain, there will be a trail of corpses prior to her exit.
What comes next in Europe….. well we will have to wait and see.
Today, I found this published on the BBC.
This is a Dutch plan to return migrants out of Greece back to Turkey, everyone should support this move, it is the only logical way to save the European Union.
Eventually everyone comes around to the George Laird view, it just takes them a bit longer.
