A benefit to be welcomed

Shame on Steve Spice for wanting to keep out refugees.

Does he know that Norway and Switzerland have had to accept free movement within their countries of citizens of all 28 countries of the EU as part of their free trade agreements with the EU?

Can the UK escape a similar obligation?

All Americans can move freely within the USA; all Europeans should similarly be free to move within Europe. This is not a burden. It is a benefit to be welcomed!
