    For too long EU Nationals have treated Britain like their home...
    Imagine Sturgeon saying that about the English.

    "over the last couple of decades or more... weíve seen quite large numbers of people coming in from the whole of the EU...able to treat the UK basically as though itís part of their own country. And the problem with that is that thereís basically been no control at all. And I donít think that is democratically accountable.Ē
    That was the whole point of EU open borders. If you're European then anywhere in Europe is your home. With Brexit your home has just been considerably downsized. Ironically, most of the people worst effected by the inward looking consequences of Brexit didn't even have a say in it. It's been a democratic farce from the off.

    Hard to disagree with that. I'm too young to know, but I wonder if the UK, or at least certain parts of It, were never really sold on the idea in the first place.

    It didn't interest anyone until Nigel told us we were being invaded, apart from the outrage of having to consume straight bananas that is.
