Majority of Scots back end to EU open borders

A new survey has shown that contrary to the EU fanaticism of the Scottish National Party, a majority of the Scottish people are against maintaining freedom of movement post-Brexit.

63% agree that the migration rules in Scotland should be the same as in the rest of the UK.

The NatCen poll also found that 59% of Scots are in favour of treating EU migrants the same as non-EU migrants moving forward, a clear indication of support for the ending of the current open door system to those from the European Union. Only 25% of Scots think EU migrants should be given preferential treatment post-Brexit.

It is a timely reminder that right across Brexit Britain, there is big support for curbing mass migration and putting in place a sensible system of managed, controlled migration. That is what the government must now get on and deliver.
