"How dare Mr Juncker use a crisis which the Commission helped to create, as an excuse for a new EU power grab." - UKIP Defence Spokesman Mike Hookem MEP
•Responding to Commission President Juncker’s call for an EU Security Union, UKIP Defence Spokesman Mike Hookem MEP said, “Juncker must be literally mad if he thinks British people will sign up to a security union with the EU after it has shown itself dangerously incompetent on this issue.
Inexperienced bureaucrats at the European Commission are not better placed to deal with British security than British security services.
Schengen open borders have allowed ISIS to create a crisis in the centre of the European Union. What Britain needs to do is to stop the flow of the unknown, the illegal and the undesirable crossing the Channel from the Schengen area via Calais.
That seven countries have already closed their borders in Schengen shows they acknowledge that the idea of open borders without checks is both a delusion and dangerous.
