Governed by whom ?

'Not negotiable' within the existing rules of the EU charter - which allows for certain negotiated exemptions as I've pointed out!

Oh I see now you admit....freedom of movement is non negotiable......its about time you and

So what percentage would these theoretical 'negotiated exemptions' actually account for?....shall we say 1% :mrgreen:

Wrong again - you're making a habit of this!

"Free movement rights can be restricted under EU law if: for discriminatory or distinctly applicable restrictive measures, a derogation ground expressly provided for in the TFEU can be engaged; for indirectly or non-discriminatory, that is, indistinctly applicable restrictive measures, an overriding requirement relating to the public interest that is capable of justifying a restriction of the fundamental freedoms established by the Treaty can be demonstrated; and in both cases, the restriction also satisfies a proportionality test, that is, it is both appropriate and necessary for achieving the relevant public interest objective."

Thus something that can be justified/negotiated!

Or in a simpler form for some ;)

"Plans to allow the United Kingdom an exemption from EU rules on freedom of movement for up to seven years while retaining access to the single market are being considered in European capitals as part of a potential deal on Brexit.

Senior British and EU sources have confirmed that despite strong initial resistance from French president François Hollande in talks with prime minister Theresa May last week, the idea of an emergency brake on the free movement of people that would go far further than the one David Cameron negotiated before the Brexit referendum is being examined."

'Non negotiable'?

So you can restrict free movement if you meet the EU criteria is what you're saying?
Whilst we remain in the EU we are just another state governed by bureaucrats in Brussels. Once we leave we can truly call ourselves a country again.

Read it again!

There is scope within the EU charter to 'negotiate' constraints on freedom of movement if it is in the 'public interest' of the country applying for said constraints.

It is not 'fixed in stone' as regards the amount/time period for any particular country.

Other EU countries have used this procedure, but the UK chose not to for whatever reason.
