For a rabidly pro EUSSR BBC, any suggestion that border controls be rigourously reintroduced between member states is deeply disturbing. Give this debate a listen if you haven’t already. I was entertained by Naughtie’s alarm that the de facto assertion of National sovereignty could lead to “a mess” whereas to most sane people, Mark Steyn’s aphorism that “United they fall, Divided they might stand” is the logical stance. Note how the words “right-wing” and “anti-immigrant” are gaily thrown around to ensure the right context is created! I also like the way that it is a Labour MEP that is the BBC’s go to guy for commentary on this topic – the bias is so natural for them that they can never see it.
