Calais Immigrant Violence

A report out today reveals that lorry drivers travelling through Calais are having to endure increasing violence from immigrants who wish to get to the U.K.

The boss of a British haulage firm, Toby Ovens, is claiming that his drivers have had to suffer severe attacks on their vehicles saying, “I had two drivers attacked by missiles thrown by immigrants at my vehicles and damage done to the vehicle. One of the drivers was female and they attempted to open the doors to her vehicle and when they didn’t succeed they attacked the vehicle, leaving her very shaken. This situation is completely unacceptable. We, as hauliers, need someone we can go to in order to sort this situation.”

The Road Haulage Association (RHA) said migrants were becoming “increasingly frustrated” at not being able to board trucks bound for Britain. RHA chief executive Richard Burnett said, “This has become an absolutely untenable situation,” he said. “We are now getting reports of extreme violent migrant activity on a daily basis.” He went on: “As we predicted several months ago, it is the port approach roads that need increased security. Our observer spoke to drivers who have witnessed migrants standing on port approach road bridges, throwing rocks onto truck windscreens, forcing them to stop. The situation must be resolved now. Waiting until someone gets killed is simply not an option.”

Any Way - Any How.

Any Way – Any How.

The most despicable thing about this whole affair is that the French Police are doing next to nothing to stop these attacks because the French authorities in Calais insist it is a British problem. I have to ask how they come to this conclusion, for this sorry affair is taking place on French territory!

Do we have to wait until a lorry driver is killed for the French authorities to take action? Currently there are in excess of five thousand migrants living in the camp called ‘The Jungle’, and so long as these people think they have a chance of getting into Britain more will come, but it is not the responsibility of the British government to solve this problem for it is happening on French soil.

It is time for the French government to bring in the Army and round up every one of these migrants, put them on a military aircraft and ship them back to where they came from. Failure to carry out this measure will only make things worse with winter coming on.

The ball is firmly in the French court!

Roy.
