Kinnock: ‘Me and 15 Tories Will KEEP Freedom of Movement’
EU friendly Labour MP Stephen Kinnock (pictured above) has hatched a plot, which he claims is backed by up to 15 Conservative MP’s, to retain freedom of movement for EU nationals in the UK following Brexit.
The plan would see Britain remain in the European Economic Area (EEA) and would mean retaining the four freedoms, including the freedom of movement – which would allow mass uncontrolled immigration to continue. This is a similar model to the one in which Norway currently participates. Mr. Kinnock said:
‘I have been reaching out with a particular proposal to 15 Conservative MPs so far.
‘There is a growing recognition now in the economy…that getting the right transitional deal is the top priority.
‘What we need to do is to form a coalition of common sense to secure in particular a sensible, pragmatic transition deal which in my opinion should be based on the EEA.’
It is not clear at this stage whether the remainder of his Labour colleagues, along with the other opposition parties, would support the Kinnock plan, which would then have the potential to force a government defeat on the issue.
