Everyone's favourite unelected European was doing the broadcasting rounds this morning, popping up on the BBC's Andrew Marr show to tell David Cameron that he can forget any plans to cap the number of EU immigrants in Britain. Here's what José Manuel Barroso had to say:-
"Any kind of arbitrary cap seems to be not in conformity with Europeans laws. For us it is very important – the principle of non-discrimination. The freedom of movement is a very important principle in the internal market: movement of goods, of capital, of services and of people. By the way, I remember when prime minister Cameron called me to ask the commission to be tough ensuring the freedom of movement between Gibraltar and Spain.
The British citizens have freedom of movement all over Europe. There are 700,000 living in Spain. So the principle of the freedom of movement is essential, we have to keep it.”
