Bulgaria's Accession to Schengen

Letters to the Editor | January 16, 2013, Wednesday // 06:41| Views: | Comments: 0

It is farcical to see Ireland supporting Sofia's application to join Schengen when it denies the right of free travel to its own citizens.

It is mad to be forced, unless one wants to be deported, to seek permission at a Schengen border post to enter (the continent of) the European Union.

Ireland then submits everyone to long queues to enter its own territory as it selfishly defends three quarters of an island against 'Schengenites' other EU citizens and foreigners.

How can a 'NO SCHENGEN' country like mine, 40 years in the Union, albeit currently holding the Union Presidency claim to be in a position to support Bulgaria's legitimate request to seek full freedom of movement within the EU and to share in the protection and security of the borders surrounding twenty three (including hopeful Bulgaria) Union and three foreign countries.
