Paranoia. Threats everywhere, protection is essential. Raise the wall, control the borders.
Security is a key propaganda strategic pillar turning mass fear into a widely spread disease.
Schengen is not for Britain. The EU is not for Britain. We know better.

London is already the most visited city in the world because of its location, massive immigrant population, links to the colonies, attractions and (for now at least) the weak pound.

The biggest fraudsters wear pinstripe suits in the City, not cameras around Buckingham palace.
