New rules laying down common procedures and deadlines for handling asylum applications and basic rights for asylum seekers arriving in the EU were endorsed by Parliament on Wednesday.
For the first time, it will be possible for EU inspection teams to make unannounced visits to monitor any attempt to introduce illegal border checks at internal borders within Schengen.
These new EU procedures on asylum are to ensure that it is easier for people to come and stay in rich European countries like the UK. The UK asylum system has been abused by too many people and these new procedures will not help the UK at all.
Although the UK is not in Schengen free movement zone, it allows migrants easy access to Calais and from there it is only a short hop to Britain. Even though the UK is not a member of Schengen, it is still suffers from its negative effects.
The EU’s open borders policy is a disaster for ordinary people and has created enormous social problems. It has all been done to further a political ideology not shared by the people of Europe.
EU Commission visit of border crossing to ensure that nation states do not do checks shows how little respect the EU has for the right of nation states to protect their own borders and citizens.”
New rules laying down common procedures and deadlines for handling asylum applications and basic rights for asylum seekers arriving in the EU were endorsed by Parliament on Wednesday. The Common European Asylum System will also stop transfers of asylum seekers to member states unable to ensure decent living conditions for them.
Video of Debate
On Thursday 6th June I attended the press area outside the Bilderberg conference adjacent to the grounds of the Grove Hotel in Watford.
It was encouraging to see that representatives of the mainstream media were present for the first time in the 59 years that these meetings have been taking place annually. This included the BBC and Channel 4.
I was interviewed by many news stations, national and international, and by independent film makers. Most enjoyably of all I was inteviewed by Alex Jones of ‘Info Wars’ fame in the USA. You can see it by cliking on this link, and here I give my perspective on the Bilderberg Group.
The existence of the Bilderberg Group can no longer be kept as a secret because of the internet, and they have decided to adopt a PR strategy. The media are participating in that, and it will be interesting to see how these meetings are represented.
The next meeting of the Bilderberg Group is due to start this Thursday 6th June at the Grove Hotel, Watford.
The Bilderberg Group has meet annually since 1954 in secrecy. But the internet age means it can no longer remain a secret and they have been forced to adopt a public relations position to meet this development.
The Bilderberg Group now has its own website at www.bilderbergmeetings.org/index.html This year they have published a list of the participants and the topics for discussion.
The amazing thing about the Bilderberg meetings is that the world’s media have abided by a self-imposed embargo on reporting them for the last 59 years. Very few organs of the mainstream media have had anything to say about them. Indeed, anyone who tried to discuss them was likely to labelled as a nutcase or extremist conspiracy theorist.
Look at just some of the names of those attending (according to the published list): Ed Balls, Kenneth Clarke, Peter Mandelson, George Osborne and Henry Kissinger. To name just five from around 138 names of the most important, powerful and wealthy people in the world.
The agenda is the kind of thing you would expect this sort of people to discuss when they meet. The mystery is not what they discuss so much as why the media don’t report these meetings. In an age when a meeting between two celebrities is usually considered front page news, why not? Last week the front page news was David Cameron having a cappuccino with this wife Samantha while on holiday.
They can’t keep it under wraps any longer, and it will be interesting to see if they press, TV and radio have anything to say about it. Or if they do will they just concentrate on the loony conspiracy theorists who think they are Satanists, aliens or shape-shifting lizards in order to distract from what is really going on.
Watch this space I will be reporting more about this when it is all over.
