British citizens have the right to pass freely and without hindrance wherever they want, irrespective of the freedoms they permit others, right-wing newspapers have reminded the EU.
We may not want you here but don’t you dare forget the entitlement of British holidaymakers to the world, the Daily Mail and Express said.
Borders should be thought of as doors to which the British alone hold the key, even those separating other countries, the papers clarified.
The Mail told the EU: “Britons unlock them, walk through and then shut them firmly in your foreign face. That is how borders work, including yours.”
The Express said: “Basically, you all stay exactly where you are, wherever that is, while we use all the doors.
“And don’t touch the doors. They’re British doors. We don’t want foreign muck on them.”
