Freedom of movement within European countries for ALL European citizens should be a right, after all we pay enough into this "club" for the privilege of being members.
I believe that, as in the rest of Europe, UK citizens should be able to cross EU borders without being stopped by Customs/Passport Control.
When I drive from one country to another, in mainland Europe, I am never stopped and so why, when I leave, or return via UK airports am I expected to go through this procedure.
Stansted airport cannot cope with the volume of people leaving/arriving and so hold ups of up to an hour are not unusual. (Despite this they request a second runway allowing even greater traffic)
Is this a united Europe, or not…and if so, why are UK citizens treated differently?
