France Threatens Britain Over Migrants

Of all the bloody cheek, now a French Mayor has said that should Britain leave the E.U. he will put all the migrants seeking entry to the U.K. in Calais and Dunkirk on DFDS ferries and ship them all to Britain.

There is currently an agreement between the French government and the U.K. that Britain controls the entry to the ports of Calais and Dunkirk to keep the migrants from boarding ferries to Dover. This is called the Touquet agreement, which was signed in 2003, and places the UK border at the French ports. It has worked well at keeping migrants from boarding ferries for the trip across the channel, but has ended up in many migrant camps near the city. Had this agreement not been reached we would have had refugee camps on our southern shores. Now it seems that is a likelihood after all.

Franck Dhersin, a no-nonsense mayor for a 7,000 strong community at Teteghem, a large suburb of Dunkirk said: “We all believe that Britain will vote to leave the EU because of the rise of nationalism, not only in your country, but in other European countries as well. Then the Touquet agreement we have at the moment, which puts the UK border in France, will quickly come to an end. Be in no doubt, it will no longer exist. The border will move to Dover and so the migrants who come to Calais and other ports and towns in northern France will then be put on DFDS ferries and taken to Dover. This will happen. The people of Dunkirk and Calais have had enough. We are the officials and this is what has been decided.”

Apart from ‘The Jungle’, which is outside Calais and holds around 6,000 migrants there is also Grand-Synthe, just outside Dunkirk which holds another 1,500 migrants. To have all these people suddenly arriving in Dover would cause complete chaos.

Damian Collins, Tory MP for Folkestone and Hythe, who came out in favour of the remain campaign, said: “This just goes to show the serious threat that is posed to our authority to manage our borders in France and the very real prospect that we could lose that power. French politicians are desperate for those powers to go because they can see it keeps migrants on their side of the Channel.” He added “although Britain could still turn away migrants landing on its shores, he fears for the chaos it would ensue for the country and its relationship with France.”

Tory MP Steve Baker, the co-chairman of Conservatives for Britain, who warned: “The British people will not respond well to blackmail. These are hollow threats. Any immigrants brought over on a ferry to the UK illegally would be sent back to France and the ferry companies would be fined. We want to have friendly relations with all European countries after we Vote Leave. All talk of recrimination is counterproductive.”

Dan Hannan, Tory MEP for South East England, agreed, saying: “If French politicians think the British people respond to bullying or threats, they haven’t read our history.”

Attacking Lorry Driver

Attacking Lorry Driver

There has been no end of trouble at Calais in particular as the migrants tried to board lorries, and even attack lorry drivers in their attempts to cross the channel. They have tried repeatedly to get into the cross-channel railway tunnel to get to England, and all these activities have meant a huge expenditure of British money to build fences to protect the ports and the tunnel.

I have to say that this is an outrageous situation, for the migrants are purely a French problem and it is for them to deal with it because they are on French soil. If they wish to get rid of them, they should round them all up and send them back where they came from.

Why they have put up with this for ten years is beyond logic, when right from the start it could have been solved easily. With them being sent back the flow would stop after a while because the migrants would realize they are not getting anywhere with it.

Muslim Message to Britain

Muslim Message to Britain

Britain has accepted more refugees and migrants than it can sensibly handle, as is evident by the continued chaos in this country. Middle East and African migrants do not want to assimilate into our society for they have been trying to change it for decades into something more suited to them, e.g. Sharia Law. If the new government lets any more of these people into Britain we will be finished as a nation in a few decades time.

Many reading my posts may think that I am a racist and anti-Muslim, but I have to strongly deny that. The reason I write these posts is because I see the damage being done to our nation by people who refuse to assimilate, and try to change our country into the one they left behind. I am sorry, but I cannot accept that.

If they wish to come here and become one of us, religion excluded, then I am happy to welcome them. But they need to learn English, accept our way of life and our laws and live by them. If they do not wish to do that then they should go back where they came from.

Roy.
