the whole keeping out foreigners is such a red herring. Most EU states retained the right that any immigrant from another country has to be coming to a particular job and is not immediately eligable for benefits. The UK govts, searching for cheap labour to under cut UK laour unions, deliberately set that aside. The resentments engendered, even if massively exaggerated by media hype, was inevitable.
