Free movement is no longer tenable

Nick Cohen in yesterday's Observer drew attention to an important point - many non-EU people are gaining entry to the United Kingdom by obtaining citizenship in countries that have lax requirements (obviously the United Kingdom had a lax regime under Labour's open-door immigration policy).

This is clearly an abuse of the free movement principle and in the forthcoming negotiations this should be submitted as one of the (many) reasons why free movement is no longer tenable.
