Leaving the EU club gives us full legal control of our own boarders; why on earth would we want to give that up. Controlled immigration is the only possible way ahead otherwise future chaos and challenges to our public services would be impossible to cope with.pabenny wrote: ↑Wed Sep 25, 2019 3:45 pmThe question on the referendum was whether or not the UK should remain a number of the EU.
It was not whether freedom of movement should be ended (although that may have motivated some votes). Freedom of movement is a core principle of the EU, but other nations - notably Switzerland and Norway - have made a reciprocal grant of that same freedom and there is no reason why the UK should not do so if Parliament so agree.
In seeking to defend freedom of movement, the Labour conference is neither helping nor hindering the referendum result
The two are inseparable. Leaving the EU leaves the UK with the full decision power over its boarders.

Please don't link having control of your Borders (thank you spell check) does not mean closing the borders to no immigration, it means controlled immigration.William Joseph1 wrote: ↑Wed Sep 25, 2019 6:22 pmits borders I think you mean.Boro Boy wrote: ↑Wed Sep 25, 2019 6:03 pmThe two are inseparable.

Yes you are correct. Once the UK has left the EU unless it has agreed a treaty otherwise as part of a deal it will be free to do what it likes with its borders.
But you are wrong to conjoin Freedom of Movement with Brexit they are two very different things Brexit is leaving the EU. Freedom of Movement is about what UK governments choose to do with our borders after we have left the EU and depending on any deal/treaty that has been agreed.
So it could choose to have open or closed borders to any part of the world. Personally I would wish that it has as open borders as possible. Immigration has bought nothing but good to this country. Immigrants over many years have worked and paid taxes and contributed to the life and diversity of this country in many untold ways. How insular would we be without them? I welcome them and all the good they bring to the country. We should be increasing the amount of people we welcome to the country not limiting them. Without them this country will fail and we will not be able to keep up the growth we have achieved in the past.
