WE’RE OUT: Government says NO to EU migrant quota demands as bloc struggles to cope

THE HOME office has confirmed Britain will not opt in to the EU scheme to relocate displaced migrants around the bloc.

The scheme concocted in Brussels would see host countries fined up to £210,000 per migrant if they fail to dole out enough residence permits to third party nationals.

But while the Prime Minister had previously said she did not want the UK to be part of the Dublin IV arrangements, Government officials have since confirmed the nation will not be involved.

In a statement Home Office minister Robert Goodwill confirmed Whitehall would not opt into the EU agency for asylum which will oversee the scheme, claiming the “functioning of the asylum system is a sovereign matter”.

Mr Goodwill said: “The Government’s view is that decisions on asylum systems were best taken at national level.

“The UK has long-standing reservations about such relocation schemes.

“Asylum seekers should claim asylum in the first safe country they enter and not be moved around the EU using allocation quotas.”

Mr Goodwill went on to confirm officials were “considering the options” on residence permits after Brexit.

It comes after an expert on EU politics warned a fresh influx of migrants is set to hit Europe and overwhelm the continent’s police forces and security services.

Roger Boyes said Eurocrats’ hopes for a better 2017 will be dashed by a new migrant crisis which could propel populists to power in France, Holland and Germany.

He warned the euro elite’s “blend of catastrophism and complacency” will come back to haunt them, because behind the bluster are very real threats that the bloc is woefully unequipped to deal with.

Mr Boyes said: “You’d have to have a Frigidaire heart to turn away the people fleeing the slaughter of Aleppo.

“But the sheer scope of monitoring the migrants currently in Germany or Scandinavia is beyond the resources of most police or counter-terrorism forces.

“Newly arrived migrants are the known unknown.

“And the politically correct approach, to play down the significance of a problem that cannot be measured, won’t cut it any more.

“We have to get into the habit of looking more carefully and asking more questions of strangers who turn up on our doorstep.”
