(Telegraph Expat) Britain is facing a clash with Brussels over EU plans to grant sweeping rights to foreigners ordered to leave - whether failed asylum seekers or Islamic extremists facing deportation.
The Home Office is expected this week to begin proceedings aimed at removing foreign nationals who fall foul of a new list of "unacceptable behaviours" that give backing to terrorists.
Depending upon one's point of view this is either seen as a potential victory or an unnecessary set back. Although expelling Jihadists to other nations is well within England's right (even if such actions show a hint of being "big brotherish"), the European Union really has no authority to dictate how a nation runs it's own security.
England is a sovereign nation and should be treated as such. Britain's government's first responsibility is to ensure the safety of it's citizens and that responsibility trumps international agreements, economical treaties and any global agreements established by the UK. Apparently the EU thinks it can dictate what measures the UK can take to protect it's citizens, as they seem to be rushing to establish a law that will prevent England from carrying out it's national duties.
(Telegraph Expat) At the same time, however, the European Commission is preparing to publish a new directive that will effectively bar EU states from sending people back to countries where they could face persecution or torture.
It will also limit the length of time people can be detained pending their deportation.
Tony Blair seems intent upon defeating this measure, as he is determined to remove all stumbling blocks (including "human rights" issues) that may get in the way while removing these Jihadists. Although it is doubtful that the EU can force policy upon the UK, if "push comes to shove" England should threaten to leave the EU, as that would be a more attractive measure than allowing international agencies to govern it's streets.
