Since this momentous referendum started more than two years ago, the result is yet to be seen. The advocates and opponents of each option; Norway plus, customs union, a second referendum, hard Brexit, are at loggerheads with each other. Trade and electoral strategy dominate the current debates, unlike about three years ago. The immigration policy in Britain has not been a priority at referendum campaign. If the Prime Minister May’s deal goes smoothly in her favor, the freedom to move will end. The system, which is to replace this deal, as written by Immigration white paper, levels down rights. In contrast with the popular argument, which is said that for migrants outside the EU, an immigration system which is skill-based could be the fairer option, the racialised distinction between ‘safe’(the white) and the ‘unsafe’ is insisted by the policy proposal only facilitates the movement of wealthy and the whites rather than balance the treatment of BAME people who are not from the European Union. The end of free movement would have implications for Europeans who lives are built in the UK; this is contrary to May’s promises that there would be no change. The scheme titled “settled status” which has been planned for the EU nationals is like another ingredient for immigration scandal. Owen Jones, the leader of Norway plus deal, a version of soft Brexit and an outcome which is an alternative to Brexit process, amongst others offers a deal of single market membership in exchange for freedom in movement. Leaving the single market is more damaging than this soft Brexit. And also, migrants’ right in the UK will be preserved. But, this soft Brexit would render Britain without much say over the European Union’s laws in which they are bound by.
