The WALL and the existential problem

The Wall and the existential problem: Lord Heseltine, former deputy PM of the UK who was sacked by the PM, promotes a wall around the whole of the EU to control immigration/refugees from outside the EU. Unlike EU bureaucrats, Merkel, Macron et al, Lord Heseltine realizes the immigration/refugee crisis is an existential crisis for the European Community. (About the 8 minute 40 second mark in the full length 39 minute video of this interview at the link here.) Unfortunately, Heseltine, a conservative, still supports the EU and is a “remainer” even though the EU as it has evolved is far from the democratic institution he wants. The idea of a united Europe with no internal borders is perfectly fine. It is the execution of the EU idea that fell apart. It became a domineering bureaucracy. Based on the statements of Merkel and Macron, it appears their intentions are to eliminate national sovereignty and move away from capitalism toward more socialism and bury European culture with refugees.
