Are Calais Migrants OUR Problem?

Recommended Posts

Oh deep joy.  So the French Govt have finally stopped sitting on their hands & ordered the clearing of one of the migrant camps at Dunkirk. 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-59303652.amp

 

"France has accused the UK government of blowing the scale of migration out of proportion for political reasons, and failing to deter people from making the crossing." 

 

Well the UK could soon help with detering people from making the crossing by picking them up & sticking them back on a ferry to Calasis. 

 

Your problem Monsieur, you deal with it rather than passing the buck.

I suppose the explanation from the French authorities is that they were too busy further along the coast dismantling a camp at Dunkirk to deal with this lot.

"I talked briefly to some of the migrants who said they were from Iraqi Kurdistan and were pleased to be starting a new life in the UK.

One told me he had been in France for seven years and in prison for five. Throughout this entire episode there was not a single policeman to be seen anywhere, despite this beach being a notorious spot for migrants to launch their boats."

it's obvious the untrustworthy French have been shamed into doing something because of the situation on the Belarus border.  Like Belarus they have behaved like a rogue state regarding the economic migrants which they encourage to head towards Britain.

Not possible due to Brexit

 

Which is really, really funny

Just as likely is the explanation that, as the UK (allegedly-) finally started paying some (£20m) of that £60m, which it had agreed to pay France for helping it to secure its border, France now starts to provide the service.
 

I’m glad that you’re seeing the value of that service for your money.

 

But it’s not a French problem, Monsieur, nor is any buck ‘passed’: there is no obligation whatsoever, in law or otherwise, for France (or any other country, for that matter) to secure its border in respect of people trying to get out, whether towards the UK or anywhere else. Only in respect of people trying to get in.

 

You cannot stick them back on a ferry to Calais, without due process. Which reportedly shows that, currently, a majority of people who claim asylum in the UK after crossing the Channel in small boats are likely to be granted protection:

I suppose you could always go full dictatorship à la Belarus, to shoulder that due process aside…but then, if so, what of the continuity of ferry crossings with the Continent, to stick migrants on?

 

Here’s some interesting, recent statistics on UK removals, in the vain hope that it will prompt a little introspection from the immigrant and France bashers:

Good old Daily Mail. So angry about where they're coming from they've not even spelt the country names correctly!

 

It came as new statistics revealed that between January 2020 and June this year, 91% of migrants came from 10 countries where human rights abuses - including Afghanistan, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Sudan, Eritrea and Yemen. These are also nations named in the top 20 countries where Christians are the most persecuted for following Jesus.

And how many have we had a hand in either Participating in a war there or destabilising? Must be close to all of those

Blimey, I never knew that we had a significant number of regulars to SF who were downright apologists for the inactions of the French. 

 

Do we have the makings of a little Fifth Column echo chamber?

We have plenty of people who seem to think WW2 didn't end 76 years ago.

British troops deployed to Poland/Belarus border to tackle migrant problem,maybe they’d be more use to us on the UK/France border.
