Boris Always Backed Controlled Immigration

Mischievous anonymous EU ambassadors have briefed Sky News that Boris has privately said he supports free movement. Boris strongly denies this and challenges them to prove he said it. Is this another example of the fake news epidemic? Boris has been very clear about his views on free movement…

On November 15 Boris said it was a “myth,” “nonsense” and “bollocks” to say free movement is a founding principles of the EU.

On September 25 Boris said it was “complete baloney” to link free movement with the single market.

On June 26 Boris said people had voted for “control” over immigration.

Boris pledges a tough new Australian-style immigration system after Brexit on June 1.

There is no mention of free movement in Boris’ pro-Remain article.

In his pro-Leave article he bemoaned the “lack of control” on immigration.

In December 2015 Boris called for an opt-out of free movement rules.

In his 2015 conference speech, Boris said“it should be up to this parliament and this country – not Jean Claude Juncker – to decide if too many people are coming here”.

In October 2014 Boris called for quotas of EU migrants.

In January 2014 Boris said he was pro-migration but had a “problem” with free movement.

Unusually for him, Boris has always been consistent on free movement, even well before the referendum. He is pro the benefits of migration but wants control of borders decided by Westminster. Why is that so hard for Remainers to understand?
