UKIP’s East Midlands MEP Margot Parker has accused the European Union (EU) of putting women in direct risk of attacks by opening its borders to migrants and refugees from some countries.

Addressing the European Parliament, Ms Parker hit out at the EU for claiming there was no connection between the migrant crisis and the sexual attacks on women in Cologne or elsewhere.

“If it was your mother, your daughter, your friend, would you still deny anything happened,” she said. “This is what happens when you open the door to other countries and cultures that treat women as second class citizens.”

Ms Parker went on to speak about cover-ups and denial and how the authorities are turning their backs because of political correctness.
