The UK/European migrant problem

The problem is that tackling those on the boats themselves is not going to stop it. Attention has to be focused on the human trafficking OCGs.
Whilst focussing attention of the human trafficking OCGs is admirable . . . (what is an OCG ?!) . . . it only addresses a symptom of the problem!

Focussing attention of the human traffickers, is merely a distraction, a "displacement activity", diverting attention from the root-cause of the problem . . . .

The cause of the problem, is those who VOLUNTARILY wish to cross the Sahara desert, the Mediterranean sea, mainland Europe, and sit waiting on the beach at Calais (other migrant routes are available).

No-one is forcing or cajoling them to embark upon that journey, at gun-point or by any other means of persuasion. They are not man-handled into the dinghies.

It is only the lack of robust action . . . often the acquiescence of various governments along the way, INCLUDING THAT OF THE UK . . . that positively ENCOURAGES migration.

I know how I feel about illegal immigrants but I do wonder how those Border Force personnel feel about deliberately bringing illegal immigrants to UK (unless they're immigrants themselves).

I wonder if you nipped round to a Border Force Officer's house and robbed them would they give you a hand to the van with the T.V.?
 
Oh look, more choggies coming our way helping interpret asylum seekers pleas and making it easier for more of them to come over. A lot of the interpreters we had in Afghanistan who are in UK now, their job is to get more asylum seekrs in, not to integrate.

During the UK’s involvement in Afghanistan, British forces were supported by some 7,000 locally employed civilians (LECs), most of whom acted as interpreters for the British army and are now being persecuted for being “traitors”.

Er no many worked in the kitchen, cleaned etc or had businesses on camp, milking it in

Terps weren't they recruited from 100s of miles away?

The only time I saw a 'terp was at OPTAG in Lydd. The others locals were making a mint, many times the average monthly wage being made in a week with the market guys. That was a nice camel hair rug I got, you could smell the camel shit from it for years.

I had dealings with three of them while I was doing projects for ISAF. The one I got assigned to me when I was doing the telco projects was a telecomms engineer and he knew his stuff. He was a good bloke. I would be more than happy to see him in the west.
