Martin Daubney has hit out at Keir Starmer’s new plan to tackle the UK’s growing illegal migrant crisis.

Speaking on Dewbs & Co, the GB News presenter and former Brexit Party MEP criticised the Labour leader’s idea to have an EU-wide pool of migrants to ‘burden share’.

Daubney said: “Keir Starmer was the architect of the people's vote to reverse Brexit. That was his modus operandi for three years. He's a rejoiner in disguise and today the mask has slipped.

“This, this deal is back door open borders, it’s as simple as that. If you bow to Brussels and do a deal with Brussels, a return deal, then it's one in, one out. If Britain wants to negotiate in terms of returns to the EU bloc from Britain, as in send them back to France, then we must do a deal directly with Brussels and not with France directly.”

Daubney continued: “The numbers are eye watering and that's going to be a minimum of 30,000, potentially 100,000 we must take, because the illegals that come into the EU bloc via the Mediterranean via Greece, we've seen there's been like there's been 7000 arrive in 48 hours in one Italian island alone.

“We must take as a member state, remember we voted to leave 12% of that total. What is the total? We don't know. It's an elastic total, but this deal would sign us up to that.

"I think this is a terrible deal for Britain and it underlines the fact that we weren't sure where Starmer stood.

"Now we know, and he's more interested in Davos, Macron, Interpol and now cozying up to Brussels.

"This confirms everything the conspiracy theorist said, and that is Starmer is basically a rejoiner in disguise. This is a terrible deal for Britain.”
