France boosts surveillance to stem flow of migrants to Britain

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

" In 2018, the Home Office says 539 people attempted to travel to the UK on small boats. Of these, 434 (around 80%) made their attempts in the last three months of the year. Of the 539, 227 (42%) were intercepted by the French before they made it to the UK."

It is NOT narcissistic nationalism to want to protect your own borders how ridiculous!! Only a militant whingeing snowflake would believe such a thing!!

So why don't / haven't we? Oh yes, it costs money. How much easier it is to blame on the French when our institutions are run half-heartedly and on the cheap. Look to London, not Paris for your enemy.

You won't, of course. But misanthopists never do. Settle instead for the easy answers and slogans spoonfed to you...

" Migrants are bypassing tougher cross-Channel security to get into the UK via Ireland, the BBC has discovered. Smugglers are taking migrants from Calais and Dunkirk and flying them to Dublin, from where they cross the Irish border and travel onwards to London. A people smuggler described it as "a guaranteed way to get into the UK".

Cross-Channel migrants 'targeting UK via Irish border'

 

Ireland and Belgium are the new frontiers in the fight against illegal migration, the National Crime Agency; Mr Dowdall also said there was evidence of Eastern European lorry drivers being increasingly complicit in smuggling migrants through the traditional Channel tunnel route from Calais to Dover for a fee." warns . https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/07/06/ireland-belgium-new-frontiers-fight-against-illegal-migration/

As recently as last week suspicions were raised that;

 

a) French fishing vessels were towing/dropping boatloads off in sight of UK coastline &

 

b  ) Borderforce and/or others on HMG/Charities payroll 'just happened to be in the right place at the right time' (inc out at sea) in order to pick them up; the implication being that they're little more than a nautical taxi service.

Suspicions are one thing facts are another.

 

The majority of migrants intercepted in the channel are returned to France.

 

If getting from France to the UK is as easy as you and others want us to believe, why are tens of thousands of them still camped out at Calais and other French ports?

 

I would like to see you and Katie Hopkins try and live on Asylum Support!

 

Of course, many illegals don't get even that, as to get it you first have to present yourself to the authorities.

And how does that relate to France stepping up surveillance at North Sea ports? Is France a dictatorship? Maybe that's an answer to Seaborne Freight? They're looking for ships!

Surveillance does not equate to arrest. I'm sure les grenouilles would be happy to see the Calais "jungle" gone asap.

- Agreed & to my knowledge hasn't been disputed.

"Les grenouilles" being unable to do British coast guards jobs, it would be wise to return the border to England asap.

Naive to assume anything about to board an international ferry wasn't locked & custom-sealed.

As British citizens we'd have to settle for JSA for which we have paid, along with the one in your link. If we needed housing too we'd have to join the queue.

 

Mate, just try even getting on the waiting list in some places. But that is down to bad government, not immigrants.
