“The only thing worse than choosing bad options in response to a challenging problem is not to properly understand it. In both its policy response to today’s great EU Migration crisis and in this analysis of the future numbers and effects of this event of ‘biblical proportions’, the EU Commission has shown just how incompetent it is. As tens of thousands of people make the trek across the Balkans every day spurred on by Mrs Merkel’s colossal summer mistake in making an open ended commitment to settle so-called ‘refugees’, the Commission has been playing catch up. Its shared quota relocation programme for arriving migrants in is in tatters as other EU states balk at trying to clean up Mrs Merkel’s mess.
“The Commission’s assessment of the positive economic effects of this level of uncontrolled immigration to Europe is laughable. Just ask German businesses, in whose name Mrs Merkel accepted such large numbers of new residents, but who now say that integrating them into the economy effectively will be nigh on impossible over the next few years since 80% don’t have skills and 99% don’t speak German!
“What borders on criminal negligence however, is the Commission’s utter ignorance of what effects such massive numbers of human beings from completely different cultures and religions will have on existing indigenous communities within the EU. Already small German towns are hosting migrant communities two or three times the size of their established populations, causing fear and resentment. With the inexorable flow of migrants through the Balkans set to continue and the EU Commission bereft of ideas of how to stop them, the ramifications of decisions made now will impact generations of Europeans in the decades to come.”
