  1. What you've said there is just not true. The visa free agreement only started in 2012. https://m.spiegel.de/international/europe/poland-and-russia-test-visa-free-travel-a-847828.html I don't get your point on illegal immigration. Most EU citizens in UK do not claim benefits, and surely if they were working, it'd be better if they were working and paying tax rather than being exploited and working in the black economy.
  2. The border control aren't there to protect from invasion, though. It's to enforce the controls on people and goods. There's no threat of turkey invading Bulgaria but still have controls there. There's no threat of Norway and Sweden going to war, but there are still restrictions on goods crossing the border. Canada and the USA have a hard border. I think they'll eventually find a way to fudge it, but it'll make a mockery of the brexit mantra of taking back control of our borders. The common travel area already introduces ways of illegal entry into the UK from Ireland which is exploited. https://www.irishcentral.com/news/politics/immigration-britain-via-irish-border When the UK leaves the EU, illegal immigration from the EU will be undetectable through northern ireland.
  3. If you read through the directive that you quote, it still states in Article 6 that member states are required to conduct exit and entrance checks on documentation. The directive just outlines a standard way for schengen countries to agree with third countries to allow those living in border regions to move across the borders without the need for visas. This isn't the same as no hard border. There are still checks.
  4. categorically untrue in all cases. ive sat in a line the turkish/bulgarian border and it is certainly not something youd want to do on the way to work and back. lithuanian citizens even require visas to visit russia and russian citizens require visas to visit lithuania. Lithuania doesn't even have a border with russia apart from the exclave Kalliningrad) and the ones that do exist look like this: https://www.google.com/maps/@54.641737,22.746689,3a,83.5y,334.62h,80.64t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sThsOyXECtZbwwGhIe4SBkA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 Looks pretty hard to me compared to this: https://www.google.com/maps/@54.2752097,-6.8667532,3a,75y,233.2h,96.73t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sb3Lz9iPV6-qTjq1NeACb9w!2e0!7i16384!8i8192 or https://www.google.com/maps/@42.4644224,2.8656139,3a,78.8y,341.62h,89.57t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1shC7MwzPsHmQal7OonZeEiw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  5. Can happen, really risky doing esta late. Mine took 6 hours to come through when I last did it.
  6. probs due to being under 18 or being illegible for an esta for some reason.
  7. Because of the way it was reported. The stadium is owned by the taxpayer and due to the nature of the stadium has to refit the stadium for different uses. The £4M refit cost is just that cost - there is no indication that the taxpayer lost out because of the revenue from ticket sales and concessions that came from that. The tickets were insanely expensive and 59000 attendance both days. If we say that 100000 were sold and not freebies, and the average ticket price was £80 (bare in mind that is probably a very low average since there were several thousand tickets on sale for £300+) then revenue was at least £8M. The athletics refit last year cost considerably more than that.
  8. What could be taking so long, seriously?
