Free movement vs. national closure

Free movement vs. national closure

 

This divide originates in the EU’s freedom of movement rules, and the ensuing flow of workers from low- to high-wage member states, and capital in the opposite direction.

 

« To use the pretext of an alleged onslaught on our social systems to penalise the vast majority of EU citizens, to restrict freedom of movement and re-erect borders – that is anti-European propaganda..»

Martin Schulz

« It is time for a new settlement which recognises that free movement is a central principle of the EU, but it cannot be a completely unqualified one..»

David Cameron
