    Default Mechanism must be found to deport EU offenders Naughten

    Fine Gael Immigration & Integration Spokesman, Denis Naughten TD, has called for the Minister for Justice to spearhead an agreement with his European counterparts on procedures for the deportation of EU citizens who represent a genuine and serious threat to society.

    Denis Naughten should be given a more senior portfolio on the Fine Gael front bench.

    Obviously immigration and integration is an important area, but a man of naughten's calibre should be in the front line.

    Olivia Mitchell is not making enough of an impact, and both Michael Creed and Michael Ring are saying and doing nothing of any use.

    FG should demote Mitchell, Creed, and Ring, promote Denis Naughten back to agriculture (where he was excellent -- and a big hit with the farmers), and introduce Kieran O'Donnell, Lucinda Creighton, and Joe McHugh (who was excellent on the week in politics last night) to the front bench.

    An excellent idea which indicates - together with recent remarks by Leo Varadkar - that there are some in senior FG circles that recognise the need for tighter immigration-controls. Those in this country who are engaged in criminality have outstayed their welcome, and I believe many immigrants themselves would agree that such people should be deported. Would Labour accept such a policy, or prefer as usual to pander to the PC-brigade and the unrepresentative anti-deportation industry?

    Naughten will have lots of time now to pursue this issue
