As MEPs vote to restore EU border controls German minister threatens UK for wanting same

The former prime minister of Poland warned the UK would not be able to place controls on EU immigration as the bloc “will not sell off our freedom and there will be no single market à la carte”.

Several European politicians, including European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, and European Parliament head Martin Schulz, have called for Britain to trigger Article 50 straight away, despite David Cameron saying he will leave that to the new prime minister who is expected to take over in October.

However, Mr Schäuble, said: “Nobody can force Britain to submit this application.”
