The American Republican party would so love to be in living in the nation of the United Kingdom. Talk about those immigrants! Prime Minister David Cameron wants his fellow members of the European Union to know that the people of his fair land DO want Scots to remain in the land of Great Britain, but when it comes to “those people” who dwell in eastern regions of the European Union, they best should head for lands such as Germany or Sweden or the Netherlands, but do not cross the English Channel. Last year about 243,000 members of the European Union ventured across the Channel seeking work in England, and, most of them were not welcomes as proved by the rise of right wing political parties who agree with American conservatives that only the “right people” can cross the border. Cough up enough dough and there is a welcome mat awaiting in England for the huddled masses of the wealthy or those with high tech skills.1
German Chancellor Angela Merkel is furious with England because a guiding principle of the European Union is freedom to move to any member of this union of nations. Freedom of Movement is a guiding concept which has made the European Union a great organization. Of course, Scots are more than welcome to come live in merry England!
