European Union Seizes Control of Britain’s Asylum Policy

The European Union’s top court has seized control of Britain’s asylum policy and border controls with a ruling last Wednesday which forbids the transfer of invaders back to nations where they might face “inhuman” treatment.

What this in effect means is that it is now illegal for Britain—or any other EU nation—to enforce the so-called Dublin Agreement, which allowed EU member states to deport “asylum seekers” back to the EU nation through which these scroungers first entered Europe.

The Luxembourg-based EU Court of Justice sided with a number of Afghan, Algerian and Iranian “asylum seekers” who challenged attempts by courts in Britain and Ireland to send them back to their EU entry point of Greece.

“An asylum seeker may not be transferred to a member state where he (or she) risks being subjected to inhuman treatment,” the Luxembourg-based EU Court of Justice ruled.

Under an agreement called Dublin II, EU countries are allowed to deport an asylum seeker back to the country in which the applicant first set foot. This agreement has now been effectively negated, as 90 percent of all entrants into EU come through Greece.

That nation, overwhelmed by an influx of migrants crossing its porous border with Turkey, and crippled by a debt crisis, has struggled to process a mountain of asylum requests.

The United Nations special rapporteur on torture, Manfred Nowak, said in 2010 that migrants often endured “inhuman” conditions in filthy, overcrowded detention facilities in Greece.

The European Court of Human Rights ordered Belgium earlier this year to pay damages to an Afghan migrant who had been sent back to Greece.

In the case reviewed by the EU judges, an Afghan national who arrived in Greece in 2008 and later made his way to Britain resisted an attempt to send him back to Greece, arguing that his fundamental rights could be violated there.

Five other migrants from Afghanistan, Iran and Algeria claimed asylum in Ireland after leaving Greece.

The court ruled that EU law precludes a state from presuming that another EU nation observes fundamental rights conferred on asylum seekers.

EU states and courts “have a number of sufficient instruments at their disposal enabling them to assess compliance with fundamental rights” in other nations, the judges wrote.

Around 260,000 asylum requests were made in the EU in 2010, with more than 75 percent of them filed in six nations (Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium and Sweden).

  1. I live in close proximity to a large asylum hostel now that the ‘get tough on immigration’ tories are in power I expected a fall off in numbers. The exact opposite has happened. The area is inundated with Afghanis. The local girls now avoid the area like the plagur due to constant sexual harassment.This ruling from a branch of the European Dictatorship just guarantees the dung heap will continue to grow.

  2. Britain must renounce its membership of the EU and cut all legal ties with it. Not to do so is too ridiculous for words. Not to do so is an abhorrent affront to the entire British race, both those alive today and those in the past who gave their lives to prevent another country ruling Britain. To paraphrase Churchill, this is not the end of the beginning, it is the beginning of the end. Adolf Hitler must be laughing in Hell! For him, and for all the present day British Liberal Consciencious Objectors, “revenge is sweet”! They say “Britain must be part of Europe to survive in the modern world” – what they are really thinking is “British independence must be ruthlessly stamped out!”

    • I agree with you completely, this country would work fine without being in the EU, all the EU does is make us use OUR money to help our THEIR countries and we need to get out of it, The government will never make any changes, they are to soft on immigrants and need to toughen up and fight for our country back to Britain, Britain doesn’t need to be a part of Europe, quite frankly Europe can shove its self where the sun don’t shine, they want British independence to be stamped out because they don’t like the idea that we will finally be able to do what we like without any ‘consultation’. COME ON BRITAIN, STEP UP YOUR ACT AND STAND UP FOR OUR RIGHTS!!!

  3. Referendum as soon as possible,PLEASE!

  4. How come these so called asylum seekers are allowed to stay here in the first place? I thought that the first rule of asylum was to claim it in the first safe country that you come to?so in effect they are here under false pretenses,at tax payers expense!

  5. There are different ways of invading another country. Not just militarily. Financial control is now the most dangerous invasion and the one Britain faces. Foreign governments are buying Britains best companies, banks, real estate of the most valuable kind in our major cities including our Capital. At one time, and not long ago, names such as Rolls Royce, Jaguar, Rover were the very essence of British manufacture. No longer, Range Rover now being made in India, will soon be imported back into the UK. Aircraft for the RAF will also be made in India. A total disgrace that can and must be changed. Are we that poor that we cannot have a prestige car made in Britain any longer?
    The greed and self interest of British manufacturers are largely to blame for what has happened. They handed over our manufacturing capability to the Chinese for short term profit. Destroying the very essence of British industry, the backbone of Britain, the small privately owned manufacturing companies. Tens of thousands of innovative small companies that were a byword for quality. Made in Britain really meant something at one time. Pakistani imports of textiles, made by exploiting cheap labour was allowed to destroy the British textile industry. I saw this first hand starting in the 1960’s. Asian business has sytematically and steadily and deliberately destroyed so much of British Industry we are no longer world contenders in so many markets. India and China are now the leading economies. This has happened due to the compliance and weakness of successive British governments.
    That brings me to the subject in hand, Foreign control of Britain’s asylum policy. If we, the true British people allow this foreign control, foreign control it has to be said aided and abetted, by the British liberal left, the same British Liberal/left that betrayed our own white people in Rhodesia and South Africa, to perpetrate this outrage on our country then we only have ourselves to blame. We, the true British people, must appose and expose, those traitors of the Liberal/left committing this crime against the interest of the British people. We see these nauseating types, Harriett Harmen, Tony Benn, Peter Hain and many other of their ilk, constantly promoting the interests of immigrants and that of foreign countries. Giving billions of our taxpayers money in foreign aid, that should be spent in our own country and not lining the pockets of Asians and Africans.
    We have a moral principle in our cause of British Nationalism and we must promote that cause, demonstrating the rightness of that cause and never compromise our principles or apologise for putting own own country and it’s people first.
    The time has come when our people must take stand against the present laws that work against the interests of our people. the Liberal/left have made the word racist a word to be feared in every walk of like. We must now say that if putting the interest one’s country and it’s people first is racist, then I am proud to be a racist.
    The time has come when when the patriotic men and women of Britain must take our country back from the traitors and immigrants now running it and treating the British people as second class citizens in their own country.
    Be proud to be a British Nationalist and say so openly and as often as possible. It is a noble and honourable cause.
    My country first and foremost should be our maxim. Nothing less will do. Now is the time for all patriotic people to join together, work together and support each other.
    The time is now.

    • Slowly but surely more and more immigrants are coming over and basically taking over our country, they send in more and more, claim off all our free stuff like the NHS and benefits and send them all back to their home countries, in the end they will drown out the british people and the will become the ‘real British people’ WE NEED TO STAND TOGETHER AND DEFEAT THEM, GREAT BRITAIN NEEDS TO BECOME GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. In that case we have no alternative but to subject the fraudsters to inhuman treatment here.

  7. Madness utter madness. Off with their heads.

  8. This is the type of Marxist inspired terrorism they are pumping out to control our communities and this has been deployed by the UN since 1997.

    Everyone needs to put their petty squabbles behind them and start organizing British Nationalist cells in all communities to do the same to them-

    BRITTON’S RULES FOR *NEW* RADICALS

    RULE 1

    Alinsky (Old/Conflict): “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.

    Britton (New/Collaborate): “Power involves creating spaces where ideas, energy and people are connected together from within all sections of the community and local government to create positive communities” This involves careful facilitation and creating safe spaces where everyone can share their opinions and contribute positively. There is no enemy in a community.

    RULE 2

    Alinsky (Old/Conflict): “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.

    Britton (New/Collaborative): “Always reject ignorance in favour of building skills and knowledge.” There are many new ideas and methods that result in creative solutions that make people and communities stronger.

    RULE 3

    Alinsky (Old/Conflict): “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.

    Britton (New/Collaborative): “Whenever possible, instigate dialogue, so that everyone shares the same knowledge base to design solutions.” Look for ways to increase security, trust and responsibility.

    RULE 4

    Alinsky (Old/Conflict): “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.

    Britton (New/Collaborative): “Design systems which involve two-way accountability. Design a strict ethical framework for your own behaviours – stick to them.” Demonstrate leadership by taking responsible for the effects of your own behaviours.

    RULE 5

    Alinsky (Old/Conflict): “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

    Britton (New/Collaborative): “Respect is man’s most powerful collaborative tool.” Respect creates a climate for genuine dialogue and ensures that people have the opportunity to create shared understanding. It also works to ensure that everyone’s needs are met, not just your own.

    RULE 6

    Alinsky (Old/Conflict): “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.

    Britton (New/Collaborative): “Connect people through the positive.” Trying to connect through the negative instantly excludes positive people with valuable ideas and solutions to contribute. Carefully develop a thoughtful long term Theory of Change strategy, where every action builds methodically towards a shared positive goal.

    RULE 7

    Alinsky (Old/Conflict): “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news.

    Britton (New/Collaborative): “Pay attention to and take responsibility for the overall side-effects of your initiatives. Plan for developing long-term collaborative capacity through relationships that builds prosperity and wellbeing.

    RULE 8

    Alinsky (Old/Conflict): “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.

    Britton (New/Collaborative): “Develop a trusting culture which is constantly communicating. Having permanently strong and healthy lines of communication between stakeholders reduces the chance of mistakes and errors of judgment.” This leads to better decision making and is a primary tool for avoiding misunderstanding, grievance and conflict.

    RULE 9

    Alinsky (Old/Conflict): “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.

    Britton (New/Collaborative): “Develop methods which help people imaginatively co-design a positive vision of the future for the community.” Work to create a culture that promotes the importance of all members of the community, rather than creating heroes.

    RULE 10

    Alinsky (Old/Conflict): “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.

    Britton (New/Collaborative): “Don’t push, don’t threaten. These behaviours break trust, trigger defenses and slows down and reduces the possibility of dialogue and making new positive things in the community.” Communication, harmony and positive initiatives are evidence of successful high-level facilitation. Aggression and violence are of signs of failure, and people should be made accountable for them.

    RULE 11

    Alinsky (Old/Conflict): “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.

    Britton (New/Collaborative): “The wellbeing of individuals is rooted in social networks. Work to mediate differences, create harmony and meet everyones needs. However earnest, never let aggressive people interrupt positive work that bridges the community.”

    RULE 12

    Alinsky (Old/Conflict): Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

    Britton (New/Collorative): “Disagreement is inevitable and healthy, but never domonise individuals based on differences of opinion. Act with integrity.” There is no enemy in a community.

  9. Oh, and don’t believe for 1 second that the smoke and mirror’s Brittons version is factual.

    Analogy-

    If I was taught how to drive a car to pass my test, can you just imagine anyone, let alone, non conformist Tim R to keep to the speed limit !!

  10. Is there a hope one day the B.N.P.could start a Churchill TYPE of Resistance in the new year.

  11. The perfect counter argument to the oft repeated Lie that being at the heart of Europe gives us a greater say in affairs.
    Just how the Hell does surrendering our Sovereignty give us a greater say than having FULL SOVEREIGNTY.
    It’s pure double speak, otherwise known as lying.

  12. violated ?? how ?? immigrants should expect, and RECEIVE certain “treatment” .. . however,
    ppl who FLEA their own gddmn Country, for greater Wealth, regardless of shape, can HARDLY stipulate as “lega immigrants” ?? i can well understand mr Brons, and concur/second current “outburst” .. .. there’s a “slight difference”, between ppl being actively prosecuted in their native Country, and people making themselves persona non grata in
    their respective Homelands .. .. this Guy the article is about : if You don’t like Greek
    high Court ruling, “please” go home whence You came 🙁

  13. @ Lindsay Brown : well said .. .. here in Denmark, we refer to such as acommodation “fugitives” .. again, their first Country of Refuge was Greece, so .. .. ..
    sooo many boat “refugee’s” .. .. can anyone, “legally”, tell me, exactly WHAT they’re
    “fleeing from” ?

  14. Since the above great article was written, we have formed the British Democratic Party. Send off for an information pack . I did and joined straight away.

  15. (Party Member) Yesterday 11/3/2014 Ed Miliband lost the next General Election! He announced that Labour will not give the British people the opportunity of a referendum on withdrawal from the European Union, put simply as in or out? In a move of outstanding arrogance, he has proved that international Marxism is dominating the Labour party. In an attempt to muddy the waters he claims he might grant us a referendum on the E.U. being granted even more powers! Just like Gordon Brown before him he is happy with us being Governed from abroad.

  16. I wouldn’t say he he has lost the next general election by saying this. The fact is the EU is an issue that doesn’t change many people’s votes (although it should do so). The economy is normally the number one issue at general elections and it is this issue above all others that makes the ‘swing’ voters in different constituencies change their votes from one party to another. If a government can get the economy right and people see their living standards rise that government has a good chance of getting re-elected. This isn’t always the case though. Sometimes, a government presides over an economic recovery (like John Major’s government did from 1992 to 1997) and goes down to an historic landslide defeat!

    Anyway, does anyone seriously think that if the Tories under Cameron gained an overall majority and were partially elected on their ‘promise’ of having an EU in or out referendum they wouldn’t seek to renege upon it? (Remember, Cameron’s ‘cast iron’ promise over the Lisbon Treaty?) The fact is the Tories have been continually lying to the British people over this subject for the last forty odd years so why should we believe them now?

    It is a truism in politics that governments lose elections and oppositions don’t win them. The next election is still Miliband’s to lose and according to these websites: http://www.pollingreport.co.uk and http://www.electoralcalculus.co.uk he is course to either win it outright, lead a minority government or form a Lib Dem/Labour coalition.
