24 migrants drowned in channel

<< < (4/19) > >>

Doctor Gollum:
Shooting them would soon stop them. The numbers might be higher than 31 though.

Rangie:
Just hope that the sea is extremely rough again today, because the powers that be are doing sod all to stop these scrounging bastards, it's totally unsustainable to continue handouts to people that have contributed nil.

Not really.  We paid the French to stop the boat people and they haven't bothered.  I expect some of that 54 mill has been trousered by French officials and politicians as well.  ::)

These are governments we're talking about. 54million is barely enough to set up a meeting room and acquire tea&biscuits/croissants&coffee.

That is very true Nick :y

It is going to take a lot more than that.  The latest thing this morning is that apparently the British Government are talking about putting British Police on French beaches.

But how many police would that require, and at what cost?

More importantly, what are we prepared to do without whilst our already overstretched police are arguing uselessly in France?


The only way to stop this is to make the UK such a shit place to live that these migrants want to stay where they are, and make the 68million people who already live here want to emigrate. Which is hardly a solution. Or we could deliberately sink all of these boats as they enter our waters, but who wants to live in a country that will do such a thing?


France is never going to take much of a stand on this, as they have long had a worse migrant problem than we do. Any that are just passing through are encouraged to do so. Expect this to get worse, not better, as France's equivalent of Brexiteers increase the pressure on Macron.
