Priti Patel intends to immediately restrict free-movement of people across the UKs border in the event of a no-deal brexit on october 31st.
The plan was met with derision by various far-right organisations who claimed that this was just the latest in a series of pale facsimiles of existing far-right policy. An EDL insider confirmed that tensions were running high before a press statement by the organisation was issued this morning.
“When they drove those propaganda vans around telling people to go home, we looked the other way even though we’ve been yelling at people with funny accents to fuck off home for decades.”
“When the government completely shafted the windrush generation without even acknowledging the good work we’d already been doing to threaten and intimidate them, we ignored it.”
“Priti Patel should know, when the government does these things without acknowledging the fine, bigoted traditions that they’re influenced by… it’s just out of order.”
Patel’s announcement also puts her at odds with Prime minister Boris Johnson who, three weeks earlier, had promised to protect the rights and freedoms of EU citizens.
A spokesman from the Home Office responded “And you believed him? That. Is. Hilarious.”
Patel’s plans were also criticised by some prominent pro-EU organisations, notably the3million citizens group who urged caution “Priti Patel’s own government finding suggest her plan is embarrassingly knee jerk, populist pandering, ill-thought out, economically damaging and totally impractical… are these really the words we’ve come to associate with policies relating to Brexit thus far?”
