Today the European Commission unveiled new proposals for a new €280 million a year European Border and Coast Guard agency which will supposedly "ensure a strong and shared management of the external borders." Within these proposals there is a "right to intervention" for the EU if it is deemed the member state is failing to protect the bloc's external boundary.
Diane James MEP and UKIP Justice and Home Affairs spokeswoman commented, "This is a full frontal attack on national sovereignty from the EU. All pretence has now been discarded and the Commission will now openly act against a member state's wishes and operate within its borders without permission. By acting contrary to the wishes of national parliaments the EU has displayed its desire for a federal state for all to see."
"In its convoluted language the EU has set out how even British and Irish waters will now come under its control and this will rightly cause a national outcry even among those who are undecided in the coming referendum."
