Michael Gove yesterday claimed amongst other things that:

Inside the EU we have to accept that anyone with an EU passport – even if they have a criminal record – can breeze into this country. That will include countries in the pipeline to join the EU – Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey.

He also claimed that we are unable to deport serious criminals from other EU Member States. You can hear me discussing from 12 mins 53 secs.
