Well thank you for that confirmation . . . . I am not at all surprised that you are "staggered" at the suggestion, that idiots embarking upon a benign/dangerous sea-crossing, should be responsible for their own actions !!I'm sorry but that's simply idiotic. Google the number of military, coastguard and NGO vessels that took part in Op Sophia and the related Ops.
Are you seriously suggesting that in the face of waves of migrants being put to sea in some incredibly dangerous craft/situations we should have stepped back because it might have encouraged some people?
Such a naive, simple, distorted attitude, clearly influences the content of your posts.
Maybe if you stepped outside of the "bubble" (of life-time employment ?!), that seems to have formed your opinion and attitudes . . . you might then gain an appreciation (if not quite an understanding/acceptance), of the frustration of others, who ARE "able to see the wood for the trees".
