Wouldn’t we also have to prove that they hadn’t set off from Belgium (or Holland) too?

In terms of transferring asylum seekers to the other party, it would depend upon what that treaty provides for by way of proof.

And I presume this also means the Le Toucquet accord falls away?

Hopefully, Spain won't be able to return Tommy Robinson to the UK either.

A different issue, as the UK is the country of origin, UK citizens in principle arguably can't apply for asylum yet, and it's not even clear if he will apply.

Is the Le Touquet Agreement a bilateral accord or overseen by EU law?

The treaties are bilateral, but concern juxtaposed controls, which overlap with, but are distinct from, responsibility for asylum seekers. The most recent Sandhurst treaty in part implements the Dublin regulation, but only for as long as the UK applies it. any views?
