EU President: No Market Access Unless You Allow Unlimited Immigration
HatTip: NWConservative

 

 

 

Market access restrictions hinted at: Check.

Unlimited Migrants equated to “Freedom Of Movement”:
Check. (Unless of course you’re a Christian trying to migrate into an Islamic country).

Freedom of movement requirements that might make many Eastern European countries rethink their EU commitments.
Check!

Question: Without access to Eastern European military, what kind of “Military force” does the EU really possess? I don’t think that the EU leadership has really thought this threat through.

Update:
EU Saber rattling begins right on queue:

Eu-army-640x481Just Days After Brexit, EU Releases Plan For Further Expansion, An EU Army, AND Turkish Membership

The European Union (EU) is going through an “existential crisis” that can only be solved through more military integration, Turkish accession and the creation of a “true union”, EU chiefs have said.
In a document on the political union’s foreign policy objectives in light of the UK’s vote to leave, EU officials call for a “stronger Europe” the draws on “the combined weight of a true union”.

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini points out in the foreword that “the European Union currently deploys seventeen military and civilian operations, with thousands of men and women serving under the European flag for peace and security” before calling for further integration.

The document adds that the EU needs “full spectrum defence capabilities”, and although it claims members states will “remain sovereign” in decisions of defence, it goes on to say: “To acquire and maintain many of these capabilities, defence cooperation must become the norm.”

This latest spate of EU Saber rattling is intended to browbeat the British Parliament into ignoring British voters and the Brexit referendum. The EU are demanding (and fully expect) British Parliament to continue capitulating to more EU political, trade and border control.

If the Brits ignore these threats and move ahead with an EU Exit filing, it might not take long for those EU officials currently only calling for a “stronger Europe” that draws on “the combined weight of a true union” to up the ante and begin calling for a United EU military to compel the British back into EU membership by force.

Update 2:

All the saber rattling may be too little, too late.

Backlash Against The EU Spreads As Political Parties Across The Continent Call For 34 Separate Referendums

The British vote to leave the European Union could trigger a tidal wave of referendums, with up to 34 plebiscites on matters ranging from membership itself to keeping the euro and stopping the influx of refugees.

So it’s a race between EU member states voting to EUxit, and EU elites uniting the military and bringing it to bear against those recalcitrant member states and their votes.

Update: Can you feel the winds? Are they the winds of change? Or of war?
