  1. If they have a passport and can dress well, they can buy a airline ticket much cheaper than a place in a storage container.
  2. Maybe they read The Daily Mail and they believe what they have read.
  3. We only need a litle benefit to keep the R below ONE.
  4. Crossing in that way is illegal and should be stopped, I dont disagree. We should do that in cooperation with other countries and spending a proportionate ammount of money on the border force. But whilst we are discussing these boats, no-one is discussing the 200,000 access net migration coming here in other ways.
  5. The French Ministry of the Interior estimated clandestine immigrants ("sans-papiers ") in France numbered anywhere between 80,000 and 100,000 people to enter the country illegally each year. How many of those do you think reach the UK? Do you think that the French should keep the all? We live in a world where goods and people travel freely in many countries. So its difficult for individual countries to say no. There were 39.2 million legal visits by overseas residents to the UK in 2017. Should we be worried about the few hundred that cross the channel, or the 39.2 million?
  6. With the licence fee we also get free online news, which some media moguls have made subscription only. When we also think about a Russian biased news service from RT, the BBC needs to be sherrished. It is quite posible that the funding of the BBC needs to change, because how we get information and online has brought about massive changes.
  7. Sir Michael Fallon resigned from his cabinet position job in 2017 amid allegations of inappropriate behaviour. Not even a court case and he resigned, the right thing to do so that the Government is not embarrassed. This government however, is delighted when ANYTHING takes the media spotlight away from Government policies.
  8. So it would be ok to highligh the behaviour of catholics at the beaches or at the Cheltenham Festival?
  9. Our MPs are role models and are intelligent people, it all depends how its worded. Of course the media will always twist anything which is a little racist. The problem is not with the 'communities'; it is there living and working conditions. That could be the fault of their employers or the poor housing.
  10. Some countries have large multinational companies, smaller countries dont have so many. Is it the many bosses of these companies that create the wealth gap?
  11. The average UK household net-adjusted disposable income per capita is USD 28 715 a year, lower than the OECD average. There is a considerable gap between the richest and poorest – the top 20% of the population earn six times as much as the bottom 20%. http://www.oecdbetterlifeindex.org/countries/united-kingdom/ France, the average household net-adjusted disposable income per capita is USD 31 304 a year, lower than the OECD average of USD 33 604 a year. But there is a considerable gap between the richest and poorest – the top 20% of the population earn around four times as much as the bottom 20%. United States, the average household net-adjusted disposable income per capita is USD 45 284 a year, much higher than the OECD average of USD 33 604 a year, and the highest figure in the OECD. But there is a considerable gap between the richest and poorest – the top 20% of the population earn nearly nine times as much as the bottom 20%. Is the OECD table a good reflection of reality? I am very surprised that the USA is deemed to have a wealthy and happy country, most news stories I see are negative.
  12. Maybe in a national emergency Government can do what they choose, but this cannot go on for 4 months and more. If the Government are forcing businesses to close, they should cover 100% of there costs.
  13. Nothing wrong with bringing in restrictions, before a large event, the Government lost their bottle and did NOT cancel Cheltenham races on March 13th
  14. Tory MP, Craig Whittaker, condemned for blaming BAME and Muslim people for rise in coronavirus cases. https://news.sky.com/story/tory-mp-condemned-for-blaming-bame-and-muslim-people-for-rise-in-coronavirus-cases-12039949
  15. A strange scam has been sprouting up in the mailboxes of people around the world. From Leeds to Washington, a growing number of people have recently reported receiving unsolicited shipments of seeds — that appear to have been sent from China. The Chineese are trying to spread discease, first COVID and now an invasive plant species As I write, the UK government are checking the DNA of the seeds. https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1315792/china-uk-latest-biosecurity-risk-seeds-jewellery-false-labelling-packages-defra https://nypost.com/2020/07/30/what-to-know-about-the-mystery-seeds-from-china/
