"Free movement" of people within the EU

Given the intransigence of Angela Merkel and the Germans in resisting any modification to the free (sic) movement of people within the EU, all we have to do is elect a Conservative government and keep the argument focused on immigration and we are out!

Of course "free movement" of people within the EU is not free at all - it has terrible costs for the communities on the receiving end of the movement.

When the Germans "free moved" themselves into Poland in 1939 and then "free moved" themselves on into Russia in 1941 they no doubt convinced themselves they were doing Poland and Russia a favour, but those countries would have seen the invasion for what it was.
