    The Tory Party are ruthless. If grandees think Boris is a liability, he's toast. And Rishi will come in as the new Messiah!

    Macron's France 100% to blame. They are indifferent to organised crime, won't allow the UK to help crack it, assist illegal boats into UK water and refuse to take migrants back. I hope the international community come down on Macron and his political games from great height.

    Yeah must be France’s fault innit.

    Meanwhile we’ve not got round to evacuating those high-risk Afghans we made a big song and dance over promising three months ago.

    Could we have not sent them back like we always could have done whilst we were in the EU? I dont really understand the problem, i thought we had taken back control of our borders or does that not count cos it wasnt written on the side of a bus?

    This was a problem before Brexit, and the French weren't taking one single migrant back.

    A bit misleading though, that’s accepted migrants, not how many are in the country. On that measure we would probably be at the bottom again, but Italy would be way up as they have loads of people in camps and roaming the countryside.

    Just heard on the radio that, of all of the migrants arriving in Europe, 3% want to claim asylum in the U.K., usually for language and family connection reasons. Five times as many want to stay in France.

    Fair. Our net migration is pretty low. Our existing population is old as **** and getting older. We desperately need a young, healthy workforce for the future despite all the wE aRe FuLl rhetoric.

    I like this new tactic of encouraging the water companies to pump sewage into the channel as a deterrent though. Nice one Priti.

    We always had the right to send them back after (i think 3 months). We never chose to track them or indeed use this facility but hey that must be Frances fault.

    Probably. I doubt we compare too well to Turkey.

    Why do they want to comehere I ask myself and illegally too.
    1. If they claim asylum they wont get it...they cannot bring proof with them as they travel with bare minimum, and everything is taken off them, stolen or lost on journey. And we have one of the worst record for giving asylum anyway...they wont get it

    2. Apparently I read this morning...our job market is much easier for an illegal immigrant to get into without papers. We have a known under current of illegal workers, because we can no longer get cheaper EU nationals, so the powers that be employ illegals

    A perfect storm

    We have one of the densest populations in the world, particularly in the SE of England/London. Most immigrants don't want to live in the Highlands of Scotland.

    We need skilled migrants at times eg NHS. These are available worldwide. In an increasingly automated world, we don't need millions of unskilled immigrants, and we need to be aware in relation to those we take, of the occasional bad apple that can bomb kids at a pop concert or mothers at a maternity hospital, or stab a group of gay people or a member of Parliament.

    I believe there's a 5 year prison max for employing illegals. Don't know how strictly it is enforced.
