Creating a populistic problem out of possibilities

The war against freedom of movement and "EU migrants" (citizens) that is led by David Cameron is a perfect exempel on how to make liberties and possibilities for all of us into a problem in national politics with the simple purpose to score short-term political points. 

The British PM is hiding behind the need for EU reforms to dismantle the very core of principles of the people's union when in fact the focus on EU reforms needs to be to strengthen democracy and citizens participation on EU level. Cameron wants to close doors that has been opened for citizens participation instead of open all the doors that needs to be opened.
