    So to translate, alt-right = "anyone who doesn't agree with you". Glad we cleared that up. I've only ever seen it in the Graun, so I had assumed it was a pejorative term which applied to Leave voters generally, whatever their motivations.

    No idea, but I understand they only have to remain in the EU for a certain time (five years?), keeping their nose clean, after which they automatically qualify for EU citizenship.

    Also, this report was released today:


    2017-07-17 The outlook for EU migration if the UK remains subject to the free movement of people

    Haven't read it in detail yet, but presumably it is pertinent to this discussion.

    Did you read that article?

    It is not as rosy as all that - and it highlights the obvious problem - those law abiding immigrants who actually pose no threat and could do some good for the country are the ones being deported as they are the ones who tell the truth and turn up for interview etc.

    The dodgy feckers just stay below the radar, live under false names etc.

    Link / source? There's no such thing as "EU citizenship". Each EU country has it's own rules, there's no "one size fits all". Germany, for example, requires

    eight years of legal residence, although this is shorter for spouses of German nationals. It also requires oral and written German language skills, a clean criminal record and a commitment to respecting the German constitution. In general, those applying for naturalisation must also give up their foreign nationality.
    Other countries may be less, may be more.

    Hardly likely to get citizenship. Only a minority of asylum seekers will be able to apply for citizenship. Most are either deported or tolerated i.e. there are difficulties sending them back so they can stay but they have less rights and they certainly can't become citizens. If the Syrian war is resolved within the next 8 years then refugees will be expected to return.

    .
    So, you have "no idea", yet you and several others trot it out as an argument that these refugees arrive at Italy and are given full EU citizenship so that they are in the UK in a couple of hours.

    Maybe, before you decide to argue that every single refugee is granted full EU citizenship, you might want to research the opinions you are being spoon fed before relying on them as fact.

    There is no such thing as EU citizenship. In uk they would need ILR first via DL or HP thatís a 6-10 year route and after that itís required the previous 10 years be blemish free, and as most enter uk illegally initially and claim asylum, itís 10 years from then.

    Only on becoming a BC can you gain EU FoM rights, and we wonít be in it then

    Even the Sun calls them Visa's, not sure why you are talking about citizenship?

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/402611...ants-eu-visas/

    based on the Times Story.

    https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/i...orth-tdt0d5bzf

    The upshot is they will be able to travel across the Schengen area and wait to get to the UK via the back of a lorry. Or travel to countries other than Italy and accelerate the EU's demise by sheer weight of numbers.
