I have always been a fan of the European Union, you can find countless articles on the blog which I stated my views on this, I know that the European Union isn’t perfect but then what is.
When the migrant crisis started, many people in politics were quick to jump on the #refugeeswelcome bandwagon, they had found a cause, people seemly in peril, the wish to do good deeds and it looked like a ‘win win’ situation.
I didn’t jump on the refuges welcome bandwagon; I stood back because the major issue which was ignored was national security. Angela Merkel’s open borders gaffe was the most damaging statement ever produced by an EU leader.
The mood in Germany has been changing as the stream of migrants just poured into the country like an invading army. The recent game changer was the sex attacks in Cologne, but that forced its way onto the pages on the mainstream media. But let’s not forget the Paris attacks, the rapes in Sweden by migrants, and the countless other incidents both big and small you can readily see online by doing a bit of digging.
Who would have thought that someone has senior as Donald Tusk would have said that migrants need to be put into detention camps? I adopted this as a position right from the start again, if you do the research on the blog, you will many of the ideas I floated have now come into mainstream thinking in Europe. Eventually people do come to the George Laird view, prior to getting there the situation gets worse and worse.
The European Union needs to totally close it borders to migrant traffic, the building of detention camps is now a priority, we cannot tolerate any longer the nonsense and inaction due to lack of political will to act.
I will spell it out, Angela Merkel has to go.
Now, Angela Merkel's own transport minister says Germany should close its borders to migrants, he added that the country can no longer show its "friendly face" if the number of refugees arriving doesn't fall soon. The wish for a fall off is naïve; the flow will not stop, unless action is taken to do so physically. The German civil authorities cannot cope, so what does that mean?
It means moblising the military, not just in Germany but right across the EU, in 28 member states, since we are all in NATO, a command structure already exists to co-ordinate such an operation. We have to remove these people from society until such time as they are vetted, it may mean that some migrants will not be let out of detention camps except to return to their own country.
Alexander Dobrindt wants the German chancellor to prepare to shut the country’s borders unless other European countries agreed to help reduce migrant numbers.
Quick question, how would you like to see the sex attacks of Cologne come to the streets of the UK?
Just because people are migrants doesn’t automatically mean they are nice people, the rapes in Germany and Sweden show what happens when commonsense and national security are overridden by people who seize the political agenda for their own ends.
Mr Dobrindt said:
“I urgently advise: we must prepare ourselves for not being able to avoid border closures. I would advise us all to prepare a plan B.”
Plan B is dumping the problem onto others, this isn’t a plan, and is entirely unacceptable to the leaders of other EU countries, Germany created their own problem, their solution is detention camps and deportation.
This is the only way to secure Europe.
To show how badly Merkel is doing, she has promised to reduce the number of arrivals this year, but has refused to impose an upper limit as she said it would be impossible to enforce without closing Germany's borders.
Worthless rhetoric, she has lost control of the situation, to attempt to force other European countries to take in quotas of migrants is wrong, and will alienate her position further, she isn’t working with people she is trying to dictate.
Someone else who doesn’t get it appears to be Germany’s Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, a member of the Social Democrats, said it would not solve Europe's refugee crisis closing borders.
You couldn’t make this up, he waffles on about it was essential to address the conflict in Syria, as well as working with Syria's neighbours to manage the refugee flow, he should be talking about a military blockade in the Med, building of a permanent border which access is only allowed as key checkpoints so illegal migrants can’t just boogie across the borders as they wish.
One thing which is also on the rise is unhappiness that politicians aren’t listening to people, across Europe, people are buying firearms, there is genuine fear, and that we will see more violence and a rise in the fortunes of the far right, who will gain seats.
Once the far right gets into power, they will do so via the ballot box, by popular demand, the Europe we know will suffer, the migrant crisis must be halted and that can only be done by the military and that means force.
In popular culture in times of crisis, the people look to a hero; it may come a time when the opposite is needed, someone has to be the ‘bad guy’ or the European Union will be finished, strong leadership is needed in Europe.
That person will come with a simple message; the word to migrants will be…… No!
