"The terms of reference given to the new Home affairs Commissioner show once again that Mr Juncker remains on Planet EU and will have no truck with any change to a system that is generating widespread social concern and action across Europe" - Diane James, UKIP MEP, South East Region.

The UK needs to wake up that renegotiation of the Freedom of movement of EU citizens has been firmly kicked into the long grass with the appointmemt of Migration and Home Affairs Commissioner, Dimitris Avramopoulos (Greece).
 
Concerns at migration movements and immigration levels into and across Europe are at an all-time high. The Freedom of Movement principle is one tenent under probably the most scrutiny by politicians sensitive to voter sentiment as expressed in the recent European elections when record numbers of Eurosceptic MEPs were elected.


The terms of reference given to the new Home affairs Commissioner show once again that Mr Juncker remains on Planet EU and will have no truck with any change to a system that is generating widespread social concern and action across Europe.
