The unelected executive arm of the European Union (EU), the Commission, wants to fine member states €250,000 for every migrant they refuse to resettle.
The pro-EU nutjobs are going to have to point out to me why being in, or anywhere near, this organisation could ever be regarded as A Good Thing. If some bloke demanded you open your house to a bunch of illiterate violent rapists OR he’ll steal all your stuff… You’d probably think that bloke was a pretty dodgy bloke, no?
The draconian ‘pay-to-not-play’ sanctions are designed to revive and enforce their faltering mandatory relocation programme, to “fairly and equally” distribute hundreds of thousands of migrants across the continent.
Why on Earth does the EU have the power to levy fines on nations? Which retards signed the documents that allow that?
If implemented, the fines would make it almost impossible for some states to keep their borders closed to non-EU migrants. Poland, for example, with its quota of 6,200 migrants this year, would have to pay €1.5 billion to uphold the democratic will of the Polish people by not admitting ‘refugees’.
All those Eastern European countries that were pleased to get in the EU years ago are probably regretting it now. Or they should be. Why should Poland pay the EU for the right to have a functioning border?
According to the Financial Times, one EU official said, “the size of the contribution might change but the idea is to make it appear like a sanction.”
Yep, the EU thinks it can apply sanctions (sort of).
The initial proposals to “relocate” at least 120,000 migrants was undemocratically forced through the EU Parliament in September last year – against the will of the people and government’s of Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary.
Did no one propose relocating those 120,000 back to the crumby countries they came from? That would have been a good proposal.
