Not till we're out of the EU, I fear: you can't keep Euro-trash out. But that jour de gloire may be soon if the Axis insists on calling Cameron's bluff and placing Jean-Claude Juncker in post. The only decent thing the Prime Minister can do then is call a referendum-ideally on General Election Day, next year. Now that WOULD guarantee a 100% turnout.

Interesting thought. Indigenous burglars tend to cut and run, when confronted, because it's many years for aggravated burglary and they might get away with a suspended for a "standard, if they've no or little form. If you come from a country which had no rule of law prior to 1989 and only a vestigial one now, you figure the police are going to kick 7 doses into you either way so you may as well give it welly. This culture shift probably explains the increasing level of violence. We'll know when they're gone-in about 11 months time- hopefully, because no one wants to see in this country what happened to the Slovakian/Roumanian/
Bulgarian gypsy youth suspected of burglary in France.
