Freedom of movement

We should be allowed to go across borders without being subjected to immigration control within the EU. Many countries in Europe have signed up to this and can move around freely. I believe we should have the same rights, as we already pay for membership, so we should get this benefit. It is especially needed for those people who spend their time traveling back and forth.

Schengen Opt-out

By ending the Schengen opt out and allowing open borders with the other EU states, we would make border controls at ferry ports and rail terminals (i.e. St Pancras) simpler. Airlines could still demand passports/ID for internal and intra-EU flights as a matter of choice.

Join the Schengen Agreement

The UK and Ireland are the only EU countries not committed to joining the Schengen Agreement.  The Agreement is working well in almost all of the EU and there is no particular reason that the UK should not be a member.  Why does Britain being an island make any difference?  We can simply allow anybody in from other members of the agreement like most of the EU does without any trouble.  This would simply put our liberties on a par with other EU countries, so it is hardly a huge and radical step.  But it would make travelling much simpler.
