Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Yes, I do mean those people. Those people to whom the United Kingdom surely owes some moral responsibility which it doesn't owe to anyone from Romania or Estonia or Sweden.

And of course the EU is partly responsible for the Windrush scandal. Successive British governments have felt pressure to restrict immigration. They can't restrict it from Europe, so they have to restrict it from elsewhere - just like the Swiss do. You've seen the threads on EF - there are enough of them!

By giving priority to EU immigrants, it naturally follows that non-EU immigrants are penalised. That's how priorities work. Have you never queued up for an Easyjet flight?
"Successive British governments have felt pressure to restrict immigration." Do you have a source for this?

Incidentally Denmark, Ireland and the United Kingdom are the only EU countries that do not apply the EU-wide rules which relate to immigration, visa and asylum policies.
