Robert Oulds discusses immigration, Brexit and the EU on Sky News

 On the day preceding the second anniversary of the pro-Brexit vote, Robert Oulds discusses why the Leave vote was successful, one reason being voters knew the UK needs to have control over its borders but being part of the EU denies this.

Powerful EU leaders, in particular Chancellor Merkel of Germany, encouraged immigration from outside the EU. However, unprotected borders has led to criminal human trafficking and dire consequences for countries in southern Europe, such as Italy. There a new government has been elected that has pledged to tackle the immigration crisis.

On the other hand, Corinna Horst claims the most important thing is for EU countries to 'come together' with common policies and help develop the countries which immigrants are leaving.

Robert Oulds explained that the EU has consistently failed to tackle the immigration crisis and that the open borders policy, at the heart of the EU project, was a fundamental cause of this problem.

The UK took the correct decision to leave the EU on 23rd June 2016. Our sovereign right to control our borders must be respected. The inability of the EU to handle immigration is now causing disharmony and creating divisions between EU member states, renewing schisms in Europe. States such as Hungary and Poland are deeply opposed to the EU's policy of forcing them to accept migrants from North Africa and the Middle-East.

The UK has taken more than its fairshare of arrivals from Eastern Europe and now we want to be able to pick the best and the brightest as we see fit. To do this we must have a full and meaningful Brexit.
