If you’re such a fan of free movement post your address here, leave a key under the mat and see what happens!
Too late now
Fishygoths, Oystergoths, Huns, Vandals, Vikings, Picts, Huns, Jutelanders, Romans, Normans,  What a mess.

I don’t think they were invited in. You can, of course, invade a country any time you like. No one is proposing that that is stopped.

Some were invited

"The Whig majority in Parliament passed the Act with the support of both Houses of Parliament, despite some opposition concerning a "conflux of aliens that would be invited over". A counter-argument is presented in the preamble of the Act, that "the increase of people is a means of advancing the wealth and strength of a nation"."

Add Huguenots, Angles, Saxons to the list. Don't forget Parisi and Belgiae.

"The UK government needs to take responsibility for its choices before it is too late. Prime Minister Johnson’s hero is Winston Churchill and he seems to view himself as a modern day Churchill.
"However, in the event of a no deal Brexit, the UK government’s only Churchilian legacy will be –‘never have so few done so much damage to so many’."
Mr Hogan, a close ally of European Commission president Jean-Claude Junker and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, said Mr Johnson’s claim that the backstop is anti-democratic "seems strange" as it is "coming from an unelected prime minister" who previously voted in favour of the withdrawal deal in the House of Commons.
"We should recall that the backstop was agreed by a Prime Minister who was democratically elected," he said.

Lay off the (WWII) Churchill thing, not to mention WWI and the Suez fiascos.

You should ignore anything that contains the words “democratic” and “Junker” in the same universe, let alone the same paragraph!

I always found Junker to be quite retiring, he has a swagger about him.

Of course we can’t do anything in the next 30 days. The French don’t get back from their holidays until October...2023.

UK telling Ireland that the solution to British problems is Ireland forming a customs union with the UK is a bit like Germany telling Poland that the solution to the Russian gas pipeline problems is running an extraterritorial corridor from Berlin to Kaliningrad.
