Visas could be needed to enter Europe from the UK

INCREASED SECURITY: The post-Brexit world may see British citizens requiring visas to travel to Europe.

BRITISH travellers may well have to fork out for visas to travel to continental Europe if security measures currently being discussed by the European Commission go ahead.

One year on from the horrendous terrorist attacks which shocked Paris and all of Europe, the EU is considering increased calls for improved security measures which could see those wishing to enter the Schengen zone forced to apply in advance.

The system would be similar to that already used for visitors entering the US and would be likely to cost Britons about £10. The authorities would be able to check identities and pinpoint possible troublemakers, terrorists or migrants before they travel.

European commission Sir Julian King said: “We think this will be a valuable addition to the jigsaw as it will allow us to know more about people in advance and raise questions about security.”

This, Sir King explained, is just one of a group of new security measures to be proposed which will also focus on internet security to fight Daesh.

      More to the point, what about all the illegals that have and are still travelling illegally through Europe.
      They are not even travelling with any id, but Europe allowed them to go where they want, and Germany even encouraged them .Much of the trouble and terrorists could have been stopped as soon as the syrian population was forced to abandon their homes by isis, but none of the countries they travelled through wanted to do anything, and that allowed all others who thought itwas a good idea to join in and made the situation worse.

      Good idea let’s see by having to have visas to enter Europe from the UK will discourage terrorists. Firstly I dont think so because most terrorists don’t come from the UK, secondly if UK citizens have to pay an extra £10 to enter Europe the European tourist economy will suffer. They will simply find elsewhere to go simple eh?

      Another class 5C idea from the loony bunch of EU law makers- as allegedly quoted to ‘our reporter’ or a ‘close source’ to the EU .So what about the pet passport ? driving licence, residencia, tax residency, bank accounts, on on and on this nonsense will continue for years ………wait to be amazed by more crazy ideas, as this whole chaotic mess , now also quoted as needing at least 30000 new UK civil servants are to be recruited to implement this new found freedom – at what cost ? and who is paying ?
