How immigration fears in the UK are fueling support for an EU exit

The fervor over immigration means there's now a "fairly high chance" British people will vote to leave the EU, says Charles Grant, director of the pro-EU Centre for European Reform, and a supporter of Britain remaining in the EU. "They see boatloads of Syrians arriving in Greece and they are afraid that they will one day end up in Britain."

..."In Merkel’s view, it would be a disaster if Britain left," says Grant. "On the other hand, she and her officials all believe that the single market is a package deal, in terms of free movement of people, goods, and services. I don't believe she is, at the moment, willing to contemplate budging on that fundamental principle."
