Germany says UK could leave EU if David Cameron insists on migrant quotas

Germany would be prepared to accept that Britain will have to leave the European Union if David Cameron insists on restricting the number of immigrants from the bloc who can live and work in the UK.

Mr Cameron’s bid to curb levels of migration from the EU is taking Britain to a “point of no return”, according to Der Spiegel.

Mr Cameron has said that he will reform Britain’s relationship with the EU before holding an in-out referendum in 2017.

The Prime Minister used his speech last month to the Tory Party conference to pledge to put reform of the freedom of movement principle would be "at the very heart of my renegotiation strategy for Europe".

However, Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, has said that she would not support any plans to change the freedom of movement rules that allow an unlimited number of EU migrants to live and work in the UK.

At a recent summit in Brussels, Mrs Merkel is reported to have told Mr Cameron that Germany would not accept any of his demands of freedom of movement and told him: “That’s it.”

Ministers had said that Mr Cameron had been planning to introduce a quota system to restrict the number of foreigners coming to the UK from other EU countries.

It has also been claimed that Mr Cameron will now attempt to appease the Germans by abandoning any plans to reform freedom of movement rules.

The Prime Minister could instead pledge that a Conservative government would ban EU migrants from the UK unless they have a job.

The Sunday Times also reported that foreigners could in future be deported from the UK if they are unable to support themselves.

One minister said that the Prime Minister is now attempting to “stretch the existing rules to their limits” instead of overhauling free movement principles.

Downing Street has attempted to take an increasing tough line on immigration in a bid to tackle the UK Independence Party. Mr Cameron pledged to reduce net migration to the "tens of thousands" by next year but is expected to fall well short of that target.



  1. What kind of twit thinks any ecosystem can handle unlimited arrivals?

  2. Precisely and have no doubt it is increasing. It cripples us with vast crime, health care costs, social welfare, housing, accommodations, schools, its an impossible scenario and madness with a tidal wave of low grade , grasping scavengers. Plus we pay a net surplus contribution of c$30B to the scavenging EU.What for?
    We need to be out. The British people would vote to leave tomorrow.
