Me on The World At One about Michael Gove’s EU law claims

Michael Gove yesterday claimed amongst other things that:

Inside the EU we have to accept that anyone with an EU passport – even if they have a criminal record – can breeze into this country. That will include countries in the pipeline to join the EU – Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey.

He also claimed that we are unable to deport serious criminals from other EU Member States. You can hear me discussing from 12 mins 53 secs.

You can see the Government’s latest statistics on refusal of admission here at Table ad4.
