    Simple solution to the Brexit problem - stay in Europe AND cancel Freedom of Movement

    Simply implement EUROPEAN DIRECTIVE 2004/38/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT.

    "Article 7 Right of residence for more than three months 1. All Union citizens shall have the right of residence on the territory of another Member State for a period of longer than three months if they: (a) are workers or self-employed persons in the host Member State; or (b) have sufficient resources for themselves and their family members not to become a burden on the social assistance system of the host Member State during their period of residence and have comprehensive sickness insurance cover in the host Member State; or (c) – are enrolled at a private or public establishment, accredited or financed by the host Member State on the basis of its legislation or administrative practice, for the principal purpose of following a course of study, including vocational training; and – have comprehensive sickness insurance cover in the host Member State and assure the relevant national authority, by means of a declaration or by such equivalent means as they may choose, that they have sufficient resources for themselves and their family members not to become a burden on the social assistance system of the host Member State during their period of residence"

    OK (a) allows low paid workers - but Switzerland manages to make it impossible, so could we.

    No need to read the small print I'm afraid. It won't work. For the EU free trade and freedom of movement are inextricably linked.

    And again, even if they agreed to something like that, how long would it be before they cancelled the concession?

      I think you may have missed the point.

      What we should do is have a referendum on that as a "taking control of our borders" measure and then when people vote for it we can say "Aha!".
      Will work inside IR35. Or for food.

        Free movement of goods, capital, services, and labour . Not free movement of people.

          and no doubt that referendum could be won with a 70% majority, but the EU would simply say no!

          It's like a gang unanimously voting to help themselves to some gold bars from the Bank of England. It is undoubtedly a good idea, and no doubt everyone in the gang would be very keen, but the Bank would go and spoil the whole thing by refusing to open the vault doors!

            Switzerland isn't in the EU. That's how they "make it impossible".

                As you have demonstrated, they don't. Certainly not to the extent that EU member states have to.

                  The problem has already been solved.

                  Virtually no EU migration

                  I'm alright Jack
