How Europe’s Radical Refugee Shakeup Could Push Britain out of the EU

The European Commission is seeking a radical shakeup on refugee policy–and that means big trouble is brewing for British Prime Minister David Cameron.

At present, the geographical location of Italy and Greece to the Mediterranean Sea means that these countries are taking on a particularly heavy burden from refugees arriving from the Middle East and Africa. They are – somewhat understandably – not enamored with the status quo.

    If they don’t want to take “migrants” they should start intercepting them in the Med and returning them to where ever they came from. Or they could sink the boats. It’s an invasion and it has to be treated as such.

    “big trouble is brewing for British Prime Minister David Cameron”. Who says there is no good news?

      All it means is that Cameron will have to postpone indefinitely the referendum on continued EU membership.

    Mutti does not want to take measures to turn back the invaders but wants other countries to share the misery. It won’t be Italy and Greece that keep the invaders – they know few of the invaders will want to stay and they are happy being just transit routes.

    The Greeks are experiencing Schadenfreude. They resent Germans whom they see as imposing austerity on them and whose country is being steadily destroyed by the stream passing through Greece. In the long term they’ll regret it as it’s killing the golden EU goose.
