Merkel SAVAGED: ‘She snubs British expat rights but will take in MILLION migrants’

ANGELA Merkel has been savaged by a British politician for snubbing an expat deal to ensure rights for Britons abroad – despite her open border deal that saw millions of migrants flock to Germany.

British Prime Minister Theresa May wanted to reach an “early agreement” with the German Chancellor to protect the rights of 1.2 million ex-pats living across the continent.In return, she promised to ensure that the 3.2 million EU migrants living in the UK could remain and continue to work in Britain.

But Merkel humiliated Mrs May, snubbing the request during a summit in Berlin earlier this month.

It is understood she was “polite but firm” as she insisted there would be no negotiations on any aspect of Brexit – including ensuring a safe haven for Brits abroad – until Mrs May triggers Article 50.

Now the German leader, whose party took a massive political knock during the recent elections, has been bashed by Conservative MEP Daniel Hannan – who condemned Merkel for her ‘ironic’ dismissal.Writing on Twitter, he said: “Mrs Merkel doesn’t want an early deal on reciprocal residence for EU and UK citizens, but is happy to invite a million migrants to Germany.”Angela Merkel shocked the continent when she announced she would open her country’s borders to migrants fleeing war torn countries such as Syria.

And in 2015 alone 1.1 million new arrivals crossed into the country – a record for Europe’s largest economy.The controversial policy has seen her personal approval ratings plunge and her party fall to its lowest level in the polls since 2012.While it also sparked huge protests, as thousands lined the streets of Berlin and other German cities in anger over the mass immigration.

Now the Chancellor has revealed she “regrets” announcing the policy, after her CDU party produced its worst ever showing with a 14.6 per cent share of the vote in Berlin elections.The anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim Alternative for Germany (AfD) party won its biggest share with 14.5 per cent, closing in the gap on the ruling coalition.Ms Merkel has since announced she will run for a fourth term as German chancellor in a crucial national election next September – depsite her low public approval ratings.

Mr Hannan’s comment comes just a few days after a Downing Street blunder which saw a document detailing the government’s brexit plan being snapped by photographers.Mrs May has vehemently insisted she did have a plan for an EU exit – but faced heavy criticism after the document revealed she hoped to “have our cake and eat it”.But the Leave supporter wrote in the Sun that “having our cake and eating it — being part of a common market, not a common government — is a perfectly achievable goal.”

Sadly to many people are brainwashed by the UK media’s BS Pader, I said when May became prime minister that we are screwed and it is increasing looking like a stitch up. I think they thought maybe the British people would forget and let it go about leaving the EU and it could then be quietly forgotten. They have been shocked, disappointed and surprised that our resolve is just as strong, if not stronger to leave the corrupt EU even more now.
