OPINION: Will £65 Finally Finish Brexit?
£65. That’s all it costs to live in this wonderful country now apparently. Cheaper than a British passport! And 3 simple questions. Is that it then? And no criminal checks except possibly against the UK criminal database. Worse still, they can then bring all their family whether or not they are EU citizens. And the authorities are expecting 3.8 million applications. Plus their families possibly on top. Will we even check if they really ARE their families?? Sometimes I wonder why we went to all that trouble over Brexit when I read stuff like this.
We voted for Brexit because we felt our country was becoming overcrowded, that wages were being pushed down by too many applicants, that housing and all our services were under duress and that we had lost control of our borders. What has changed since the vote for Brexit? Nothing as far as I can see. Just that those who want to live here have a deadline by which to have been here for 5 years and apply …. But don’t worry, if you haven’t, then just wait til you have been here 5 years and then you can apply! Ridiculous.
And for £65 and 3 questions they get full access to everything – housing, pensions, benefits, the NHS, schools, you name it. And even if they are found to have a criminal record elsewhere they still may not be deported. This feels almost worse than having soft borders, it feels like we are actually holding the door open for them, and that we are making a mockery of our vote for Brexit. So now we have to accept that our country is overcrowded and can only become more so.
So, do we get the same if we are a British Citizen working in the EU? The simple answer is – NO! We have not even been offered a solution for after Brexit, Our citizens are still in limbo. Why on earth has our government offered this deal without using it as a bartering tool to help our people who work abroad? I do have to wonder sometimes if they have any interest in us at all! And if our own government doesn’t care, well, why would the EU??

Either way, I’m not saying that those who have settled, bought houses, got steady jobs etc should just be uprooted and thrown out. That would be awful of course. No one wants that. Its too late to say that people who have made lives here should leave, it would be inhuman. But they are not all decent and contributing to society, are they? So why can’t we deal with this properly? There are many who really are just hanging around, claiming benefits and blocking up social housing and exhibiting anti-social behaviour. We have our own people who do this of course. But do we really need everyone else’s as well? Why can’t we now get rid of them? We know from experience that those who are not genuine and who are criminals will find a way around the system. And our local areas have definitely gone downhill from overcrowding and criminals who have just wandered in across the open borders and taken root on our high streets, begging, drinking, fighting and shoplifting. This behaviour on the street was rare (if at all), where I live until Tony Blair’s invitation to the world to come and live here.
It’s now been 2 years since we voted successfully for Brexit. And those of us who believe in it are celebrating our success but also still fighting for that vote to be enacted and for democracy to be upheld. It feels like the struggle is still continuing. And the timing of this announcement seems worse because it is so close to the anniversary. Are we then just going to stay in the EU in everything but name? I don’t want people who have come to live here for genuine reasons to feel nervous or worried, but we must put our own people first, for once! And I have a horrible feeling that the amount of people that manage to stay here will be a lot higher than the already enormous 3.8 million the government have stated. Since when have they ever OVER estimated an immigration figure?
It feels to me that our country is being worn down. No matter how strong we are, a way will be found to override what we have voted for and believe in. When will we all wake up and stand together? I don’t know… but it needs to be soon. Why do so many ordinary people want to rail against Brexit? Why were there so many indigenous British people shouting racist at those of us who want to preserve our culture and way of life? And why are they so willfully blind to the overcrowding and oppression that poorer people are feeling due to the lack of border control and mass immigration that is going on every day. Add to that the fact that if there are so many from abroad eventually WE start to feel in the minority in some areas – definitely true in parts of London already. On top of this, where is the impetus to integrate with us if they are living in large communities of their own?
All in all, this £65 seems a rather cheap price to put on having access to the most sought-after country of the world to live in! So here’s to Brexit and all it stands for – our hopes of taking back control of our country and sovereignty…. And for now, let’s celebrate again. But tomorrow, my friends, I fear we must continue the fight….
