Blair says United Kingdom can control immigration without Brexit

Blair says United Kingdom can control immigration without Brexit”

Meanwhile, former British prime minister Tony Blair has called for tough new immigration rules which would allow Britain to exercise more control over who comes into the country without leaving the European Union.

The Irish government-determined to achieve as frictionless a border as possible-has long argued that the best way to avoid this would be for the United Kingdom to remain in the European Economic Area as a non-EU member, the current status of countries such as Iceland and Norway.

Action could include legally-binding "grandfathering", or allowing existing contracts to run to maturity without change, the paper said.

'Nor are they voting for the terms of our exit.

"But with just 18 months to go before we leave, the economy is growing weaker, and Britain is simply not investing enough in the infrastructure we need to compete with the world's strongest economies".

His attempts to argue the case for staying in the union appear unlikely to succeed given the stance of the two main United Kingdom parties who have said they would respect last year's referendum result.

Mr Blair had argued that he understood the anxiety of some voters about immigration and its potential downward impact on wages.

Opponents of Brexit who turned out in their tens of thousands for one of the largest marches yet against Britain's withdrawal from the European Union have been told they need to "listen and understand" leave voters and bide their time for a referendum on any deal that may emerge.

"The British people did not vote for confusion and neither should Parliament".

"I think they like what they call creative destruction". "What we now need to address is the practical consequences of what is our new relationship". "Europe matters to this country and we've got to keep it", Cable said.

The immigration report was released by a new body set up a year ago by Mr Blair to promote the centre ground of United Kingdom politics and tackle the rise of "populism" that he blamed for the Brexit vote.

It came as some Tory MPs threatened to block any Brexit divorce bill Theresa May agrees with the European Union - who want up to £100 billion to "settle up" when the United Kingdom quits the Bloc. The former prime minister says proper immigration controls would make it possible to take back control of Britain's borders without leaving the EU.

The Lib Dems said the chances of inflicting a government defeat lay with Labour MPs following Jeremy Corbyn's instruction to oppose the bill, and urged him to sack any frontbenchers who defied his orders. Brexit will mean "fewer jobs and a less prosperous country".
