I was doing my rounds of the blogs and newspapers this morning seeing what would catch my eye and looking for progress on previous posts. Hidden in the Daily Mail was an article reporting that EU Home Affairs Commissioner Cecelia Malmstroem was looking to impose 'limited internal border controls' within the Schengen area where borders were coming under pressure. Now I always thought that there was only freedom of movement between countries within the Schengen area and the external border controls between Schengen and non Schengen areas were to remain in place.
Do I detect an element of panic emanating from Brussels? I then discovered a clip of Tunisians attacking police in France so I popped over to Gates of Vienna as he is usually well clued up on migrant movement and there it all was. The build up of Tunisians and Libyans threatening to engulf the EU is gaining momentum and has even rattled the cages of the proletariat.
It was however, the single comment at the bottom of the 'Camp of the Saints - the Shape of things to come ' that made me chuckle. 'Refugees? That's so quaint -don't you know an invading army when you see one?"
