It’s plain that many if not most now camped out in Budapest and Kos
and Calais are not ‘refugees’ or ’asylum seekers’. Because of the EU’s
open borders, no one seems to have a clue about their point of origin or
their reasons for being here.
The suspicion is that a high proportion are economic migrants;
pictures suggest they are mostly male and they are desperately trying to
queue jump in order to get what they want.
This is potentially worrying because it suggests the beginnings of
the complete disintegration of border controls. The EU’s ‘free movement’
principle has seemingly transmuted into a total free-for-all."
