I hope to God we vote to leave because I fear for our security if we stay in.

Leaving means we will have the ability to control our own borders and regain the power to deport dangerous criminals and terrorist suspects.

More than 500 million people from the EU now have the rights to come into the UK unchallenged and unchecked.

Ronald K Noble, the former Secretary General of Interpol, warns that the lack of control over borders is like ‘hanging a sign welcoming terrorists to Europe’.

The EU is now proposing a deal with Turkey which will effectively create a free travel zone stretching from the Syrian border to the English Channel.

Theresa May is Home Secretary, in charge of our border security among other things.

But when 52 migrants crawl out of two lorries deep inside Kent on the same day 10 days ago, having stowed away and successfully crossed the Channel, what kind of job would you say she’s doing?

Barely a week goes by without us being assured by the Government that border controls are being tightened. But if anything, the situation seems to be getting worse.

I’d say it’s time Theresa was relieved of her duties.

We are now being told by a European human rights activist that we should be calling them “irregular migrants” instead of illegal immigrants.

Latvian activist Nils Muiznieks says calling them this uses “the language of criminalisation”. But criminals some of them are.

I read two horrifying stories last week about foreign criminals we couldn’t keep out.

Warsaw gangster Marlusz Florowski, 39, was wanted for gang offences in his homeland, including kidnapping, but managed to enter the UK in 2012.

On an industrial estate in West London, he attacked garage owner Benedykt Nowak’s face with a blow torch before dousing him in petrol. He laughed when he was jailed for 30 years.

Ireneusz Bartnowski, 22, battered and stabbed an elderly couple to death in 2011 – a week after arriving in the UK. When they went to bed he attacked them with a knife and a foot-long hammer.

Jailing him for 34 years for their murders, a Wolverhampton Crown Court judge described him as ‘evil beyond belief’.

The list goes on and on.

These men should never have been allowed in this country.

If we get back control of “our” borders, at least we stand a chance of deporting these animals.

I have never heard so much tosh as that being spouted by junior doctors justifying why, at the end of April, they plan a full walkout, including withdrawing 999 cover over their pay dispute.

Dr Johan Malawana, chairman of the BMA’s junior doctor committee, said: “No junior doctor wants to take this action but the Government has left us with no choice. We deeply regret the disruption to patients. The major sticking point has been over weekend pay and whether Saturdays should attract ‘unsocial’ payments.”

Whatever happened to the hippocratic oath that doctors swear, saying their patients’ health is paramount?
