A GUEST POSTING:
Everybody's favourite fascists, & UKIP's partners in the European Parliament, Lega Nord, have come up with a great idea.
Lorenzo Fontana, one of their MEPs, is calling on the European Commission to produce legislation to "ensure an equal distribution among the 28 member states of immigrants arriving at the coasts of southern Europe and across the EU border with Turkey, in accordance with the principle of solidarity and burden sharing".
Basically, this means passing immigrants and refugees our way.
Or to paraphrase the famous inscription on the Statue of Liberty:
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free;
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless,
Tempest-tossed to me,
And we will send them all to Kent.
So, we have new EU legislation, the passing on of unwanted human beings, and recognition of the 'solidarity' of the EU.
Nice company Nigel Farage keeps.
