The UK/European migrant problem

Maybe so but as far as I'm aware neither Iran or The U.S.A. has started dropping ordinance on Calais.
So what exactly where they fleeing from in Greece, Italy or France.

Is France a combat zone?
Unfortunately some parts are
 
If should be that simple but the migrant problem shows no sign of slowing down and there appears to be a lack commitment from government to tackle it seriously.
Too much interference from the 'yuman rights snowflakes, which includes giving these illegals food and money in France and facilitating their entry into Britain.

I detect that the media are using cuddly, rouguish, more noble term ‘people smugglers’ to describe ‘human traffickers’.

Er we tried that....
An interesting argument was that it was Tony Blair's surveillance nightmare. Everything was to be linked to the card, and most government departments (and possibly a few non-government ones) would have had access, and that is why it failed.

However, there may be a case for a ID card that confirms the holder is who he says he is, and maybe an address, but nothing more. In such a case the humble driving licence is a good example, it is pretty much used as an ID card and confirmation of address already.

The down side is that Blair's idea has screwed the public perception, so that the idea is politically toxic, and how do you prevent mission creep on the card?

IMHO, a card that confirms identity, an NHS number and a National Insurance number is everything needed.
 
This malarkey was belongs in the desert, not in a modern country with roads and technology and other such modern basics.
You can lead a donkey to a water trough but you cant make it drink. Whether its purely on a personal basis or group/bigger picture, safety Its a cultural blind spot to many people in the region.

Just as well no one has noticed that the government just carried on and put their biometric ID card in to service. Won't take terribly much political will to expend it's application to a wider audience.

 
Lets hope they get some boiling sugary water sloshed over their faces soon, and some life-changing injuries.
As long as the NHS doesn't have to treat them for reconstructive surgery after. I always thought the application of a swastika in Inglorious Bastards was an excellent aid to identification those less desirable elements in society.
