Are Calais Migrants OUR Problem?

Given the cynical manipulation of the internationally recognised law of the sea leading to our own patrol craft being used as taxis we should just stop patrolling. Instead just wait for low tide then install WW2 era beach obstacles in the affected areas. Cheap and effective.

To take your idea further the German coast defences on the Normandy beaches failed to repel a determined assault.

Reading some of the foregoing comments we are obviously under a daily attack by invaders and a few beach obstacles seems an improbable solution considering the hardships that these refugees have overcome to get so far.

Got you now. You're thinking about the French navy who kindly help the economic migrants to reach British waters.

 

That and a host of other jobs such as looking after you in your dotage.

I'm sure the seaside towns along the south coast that rely on tourism would be delighted at the effects that would have on their prosperity.

No foreigner regardless of whether they are an illegal migrant will be looking after me in my dotage.

As I've posted before, the problem is that refugees are directed towards the UK as they are told how good they will be treated here.  Part is true, but part is told to them in other countries just to pass them on to the UK.  They are willing to brave the perilous journey for the "riches" on our shores.  Despite rhetoric, the Tories have not been able to do anything about it.

 

What it needs is a publicity campaign aimed at the countries they come from (especially the economic migrants), showing the details of those washed up who didn't make it, the squalor of the accommodation some end up in, reports of bodies found in trucks and so on.  Perhaps that will do some good in stopping them coming to the UK, and real migrants may settle in France, Germany or wherever instead.

Back in the 60s it was the USA which was the recomended place and probably still is for the poorer countries that are close to the USA, my Dads sister went

Do you have the same policy on doctors and nurses?

West’s definition of “foreigners” would be interesting too.

So instead of spouting excrement you will be sat in it.

You're a fair poster and I acknowledge I was rather blunt with my post. Nevertheless I will stick to my beliefs that economic migrants coming to our country isn't a good thing especially those who arrive in British waters on inflatable boats. The truth is I have far more respect for foreigners than the majority of remain voters and the anti Brexit mob who only really want them here to to do the low skilled menial jobs.
