The British independent MEP told Hungarian daily Magyar Hirlap: “If we import the third world we get third world problems.”
Atkinson added that “rapes, gang rape, violent crime have increased exponentially and that our prisons are proportionally overburdened with foreign criminals in comparison to the citizens of our states”.
She urged countries to secure their borders. “We have to close our individual nation state borders, abandon the failed ideological policy of Schengen, close the EU’s external borders and start speeding up the extradition of migrants, as [Interior Minister Matteo] Salvini is doing in Italy.”
Asked about how political correctness prevents UK authorities from acting, she explained: “Our failed open doors migration policies have continued where we have let people in whose backgrounds were not rigorously checked and when we do charge them with crimes we are not allowed to deport them because our own judges or the European Court of Human Rights overrules our sovereign courts.
This has happened with terrorists, hate preachers, those encouraging terrorism and the mainly Muslim Pakistani rape gang members who have groomed tens of thousands of young, vulnerable girls”.
Britain’s Home Office knew about Pakistani rape gangs preying on underage white children for more than a decade before it finally commissioned an investigation, a review found.
Atkinson also believes that former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon’s plan to boost conservative political movements in Europe in order win over one third of all seats in the European parliament in the election next May, is quite realistic.
She told Sputnik News: “His prediction for a third of seats for Eurosceptics in the May 2019 elections is about right. I have been saying this for a couple of years now… I have every expectation that the voters will put their faith in to deliver a completely reformed EU, one of cooperating nations and freedom.”
Bannon has held talks with Marine Le Pen’s National Rally party (RN), formerly known as the National Front, Nigel Farage, the former head of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban as well as with the Polish movement.
Conservative lawmakers may represent a third of the total amount of the European Parliament’s members after the 2019 election, they believe.
ENF spokesman Tom Vandendriessche, said during the 2019 European Parliament election voters will have to make a choice between globalism and patriotism, between national sovereignty and European institutions, between mass migration and the respect for national identities.
