Good. That’s Exactly What Should Happen.

Campaigners said they feared that many of the migrants, who refuse to formally apply for asylum in France in the hope of smuggling themselves onto lorries bound for Dover and applying for leaving to remain in Britain, will be declared “illegal” and face deportation out of France to other European countries or their country of origin within 48 hours.
Which is, of course, a problem for such campaigners, as the existence of these camps & shanty towns provides them with opportunities to do what they do best – agitate, whinge and campaign.
Lisa Furness, a Bristol-based artist who had been photographing daily life in the camp, said: “The alarm was raised and suddenly it was pandemonium. One moment people were sleeping, the next hundreds of people were trying to save themselves.
"Lots tried to climb over the fences to escape while others tried to push the police back. But they were pepper sprayed and it was pretty clear they were facing overwhelming force.”
Well, hurrah! At last. I only wish we had the gumption the French have shown.

These are not refugees, to whom we (arguably) owe a duty of care - just economic migrants who are trying to game the system, exactly the same sort of people who are currently using children to get around similar controls in the States.
Two weeks ago Adam Joseph, 45, a South Sudanese farmer who paid $6,000 for a hellish journey across Africa and the Mediterranean to reach the Channel, was shot in the back by a suspected far right vigilante as he slept in the food distribution area.
The Independent found him wandering the streets. He said: “It’s scary for us when this happens. We are not bad people so why send in these robo-cops while we sleep? We get shot at, we get raided. Just let us live with a little dignity while we try to go where we want to go.”
We don’t want you here. You contribute nothing to our society. You have to rights to come here as anything other than a tourist.
Mateus Ferri, a volunteer who works with the refugees, said: “This is a shame for the whole of Europe, including Britain and France. These people came here with a dream of a new life and a dream of freedom. And yet today we have this evacuation which looks closer to the Second World War than the 21st century. It makes me angry.”
England is not the Land of Milk and Honey. We cannot take in the world’s poor. We don’t want to take in the world’s poor.

The fact that there are people like you trying to force us to do so makes me angry.

Whilst it is undoubtedly a wicked act to shoot someone, what makes people think that it therefore must be the work of the, 'Right-Wing' ?

The moment they mention such things, I instinctively know that they themselves are Left-Wing and, just want to create a dystopia, thereby ensuring a rich voting base in which to keep them and 'their kind' in political power.

Blair and Cameron are both on record as saying they can see 'no upper limit' for immigration/population in the UK. There are 1.5 billion people in poverty in the world, so presumably Cameron would be chunky-dory with a UK population of nearly 2 billion. Insanity. The sainted Greenpeace reckon a sustainable population for the UK is 33 million, around half of what we now have, and the UK is already one of the top 3 most densely populated countries on the planet.

""These people came here with a dream of a new life and a dream of freedom.""

I doubt they have a dream of paying for any of it.

"I doubt they have a dream of paying for any of it."

Nor do a fair number of locals.

Scrap the Welfare State and we'd clear both problems up.

I wonder how many would try to get into the UK if they got nothing for the first 10 years of being here - by nothing I mean absolutely no handouts from any public body. The only thing they could get would be a certificate to say they could work and pay tax and NI. If at the end of the 10 years they have not paid tax and NI for a continuous 5 years they are sent back to their country of origin. If they can show payment of tax and NI then they become eligible to limited benefits but not a British passport.

Has anyone realised yet that mass immigration - legal and illegal - is actually encouraged by the authorities?

Think cheap labour employers and the corruption of politicians.

better still think white flight till 'problem solved'.
Then there will be another suitable province for EU with no turbulant patriots.

"Whilst it is undoubtedly a wicked act to shoot someone..."

Is it?

"I doubt they have a dream of paying for any of it."

Bingo!

"Nor do a fair number of locals."

Also sadly true. But I don't think abolishing welfare is the magic bullet either.

Not while we have a Black Economy.

I like this idea!

"Then there will be another suitable province for EU with no turbulant patriots."

I dunno, they seem a bit turbulent to me...
