You may remember some time ago that governments, including the British government, signed up to the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration which was promoted by the UN. It sparked outrage and protests across Europe and at the time, the European Commission said that it was not “legally binding”.
However, a leaked note from the same European Commission now says:
“It must be (…) concluded that the GCM has legal effects as it is able to decisively influence the content of the legislation adopted by the EU legislature”.
The final paragraph of the note continues:
“In accordance with the principle of loyal cooperation, Member States should facilitate the achievement of Union’s objectives, including the implementation of the GCM. At the same time, they should refrain from any action that could jeopardise the attainment of those objectives”.
Matteo Salvini’s ENF group is understandably not impressed:
“By referring to the GCM in preambles and footnotes to official texts, the Commission is surreptitiously working to make it legally binding in the long term. This would mean that member states will have even less possibilities of carrying out their own policies regarding immigration.”
Once again, the EU is imposing its diktats by slight of hand, trampling on the free people of Europe…..
