We have enough migrants from air and vehicular travel and this situation is proof of what a soft touch we really are. I liked the BBC comment about the french wanting more cash, on top of what we already dole out to patrol a bit better.Did not a French politician criticise Diane Abbott over her statement that those people coming here are fleeing from war and tyranny? It was pointed out that France is currently a fairly safe place.
This country shouldn't have a refugee problem. It's an island off the edge of a large and relatively politically stable land mass. It does have a problem with economic migrants, though.
Were stuck in a perpetual loop, of:-
1. Unsolvable problem, chuck some millions at it.
2. Somebody points out its cheaper to just let them in.
3. People complain about the influx and the government does something which raises the hackles of the legal soft touches.
4. Go back to doling out money.
