Can We Solve The Calais Crisis?

Posted in Afghanistan, America, Benefits, Britain, European Union, Extradition, Immigrants, News, Pakistan, Police with tags , , , , on 02/09/2016 by floroy1942

For more than ten years migrants have been gathering at Calais in northern France trying to get across the Channel to England. It is estimated that currently there are 12,000 migrants, almost all of whom are illegal, and according to the French many more are on the way. It is clear that soon the crisis at Calais will explode as they become more frustrated.

Local people already complain that the migrants are rapidly becoming far more violent than they used to be and it seems that everyone is blaming the British.

The Camp

The Calais Camp

What the French government and people fail to comprehend is that all these migrants are on French soil, NOT British soil, so therefore they are subject to French Law. Britain is not forced to allow these people entry to the country, and it is up to Britain to decide who enters our land, not the French.

For me the French made a very big mistake when they allowed these people to gather at Calais in the first place. With their cavalier  “Oh this is a British problem not ours” attitude they have created this whole mess.

Had the French been clever enough to realize that by sending these people back where they came from as soon as they started gathering, this whole debacle could have been avoided. Also we would not have been talking about thousands, but possibly a couple of hundred.

Migrants - Calais

Migrants – Calais

The current situation is definitely not acceptable to the residents of Calais and never has been, but the Mayor of Calais has still not taken any direct action to get the government involved in deportations. All she keeps insisting is that they should all be moved to England and kept in camps along the south coast. What she seems to forget is that these people are on FRENCH soil and are therefore a french problem. The fact they are trying to get into England is totally irrelevant. I am damn sure that were the situation reversed, and we were trying to dump our illegal migrants on to France, they would kick up one hell of a fuss and be complaining to the Human Rights Council on the first day.

According to Jean-Claude Delage, the trade union’s general secretary, (I fail to see what he has to do with the problem) there will soon be so many illegal immigrants living in the ‘Jungle’ camp, that an “en masse” evacuation would be “too dangerous” to implement.

Destruction

Destruction

I don’t believe that! It would seem to me that the obvious solution would be to surround the entire refugee compound in both Calais and Grande-Synthe in Dunkirk with troops and have every one of the migrants arrested, taken to a holding area at a military airbase, and then flown back to wherever they came from. Do this a few times and the migrants would soon get the idea that there is no point in trying anymore.

It is International Law that any refugee can claim asylum in the FIRST nation they enter outside their own. This rule has been completely forgotten by all and sundry, because most of the migrants have travelled through four or five countries to get to the English Channel and want to come to Britain for the free handouts from the government. Why did they not claim asylum in Greece or Italy? I’ll tell you why – because Britain is the most generous country in Europe when it comes to asylum seekers and immigrants.

Fighting To Get To England

Fighting To Get To England

The English authorities well know that 80% of these people are not fleeing violence in their own country, they are economic refugees who are out to make money off the British Welfare System. They know that as soon as they get into Britain they will be given a place to live, food, and money every week by the government, and they need do nothing for it.

It is hoped that Theresa May now she is P.M., will do something about this enormous scandal.

France Threatens Britain Over Migrants

Posted in America, Britain, David Cameron, England, European Union, Immigration, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, News, Sharia Law with tags , , , , on 08/07/2016 by floroy1942

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.”

The Jungle

The Jungle

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.

Pathetic!

Dec. 17 - Migrants force their way into a truck.

Dec. 17 – Migrants Force Their Way Into A Truck.

Once again the French have shown how pathetic their attempts are to control the situation in Calais where migrants are concerned. Yesterday between 800 and a 1,000 migrants tried again to storm the Channel Tunnel trying to get to Britain and it was eventually necessary for the police to use teargas to drive them back.

This farce has been going on for years and yet the French government seems totally incapable of putting an end to it. Violence breaks out almost every day at Calais as migrants try to get across the English Channel to Britain. As you would expect, they choose Britain above all other European countries because of the generous benefits they receive.

The numbers in Calais have increased steadily over the past year, until there is now an estimated 6,000 of them living in a place near the docks called ‘The Jungle’. Each day they search for a way to sneak aboard trucks passing through the terminal or get into the tunnel that joins Calais with Dover in Britain.

As I have reported in earlier posts, the French seem to think it is a British problem even though it takes place in their country. Currently Britain is providing much more security at the port than the French government, which is ridiculous.

Now that security measures have been beefed up at Calais some migrants have moved on to Zeebrugge in Belgium in an effort to get across the Channel.

These people will never give up, so it is really up to the authorities to solve this problem once and for all. The one sure way is for the French authorities to round up every migrant in Calais and ship them back where they came from. Do this a few times and the flow to the channel coast will stop.

I just wish the French politicians could see this quick, simple solution that is staring them in the face.

Calais Immigrant Violence

Posted in Britain, England, Europe, European Union, Immigrants, Immigration, News, Police, Politics, UK with tags , , , , on 13/11/2015 by floroy1942

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.

Immigrant Violence

Immigrant Violence

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.

Driver Under Attack

Driver Under Attack

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!

This Just CANNOT Continue!

Calais

Calais

Although the tensions in Calais seem to have diminished, there are other parts of Europe that are struggling to deal with the immigrant crisis, and still the EU Council does nothing.

It makes me wonder why we bother having politicians at all, because apart from laying down stupid rules that no-one wants they never seem to be able to deal with a real crisis.

While Britain and France have struggled to control the thousands of migrants who are trying to cross over into Britain they have not lifted a finger to assist.

Bulgaria Refugee Camp

Bulgaria Refugee Camp

Now we also have a crisis in Italy, Greece, the Greek Islands and Bulgaria, all being over-run by migrants wanting to settle in Europe. So far this year a total of 350,000 migrants have landed on European shores, which is an increase of 175% over the same period last year. At this rate it will be close to a million by the end of the year. Should Europe take them all in and be done with it, or should we begin shipping many of them back where they came from?

Pakistan 'Refugees'

Pakistan ‘Refugees’

From news broadcasts it is clear that a large majority of ‘refugees’ are from Pakistan and they all want to settle here. Why? There is no war in Pakistan, but they are here because they are economic refugees and see an easy future in Europe. To begin with I think all those from Pakistan should be immediately repatriated to their own country which will take a great strain off our resources.

Many Are From Islamic State

Many Are From Islamic State

Some may find my stance on this issue harsh, but we cannot allow a whole continent to be swamped by refugees when the majority are here purely for economic reasons. While I have sympathy with those who are fleeing war, I have none for those who are coming here for an easy life. Plus the fact, how do we tell those belonging to Islamic State from genuine refugees?

If we accepted only genuine refugees from war-torn countries like Iraq the numbers would be more than halved, but the economic refugees only see Europe as somewhere to feather their nests!

One should not forget that for every migrant allowed to stay in Europe there will be a whole line of family following them. Wives, children, parents, grand-parents, uncles, aunts and their children, the list is endless, and how are we supposed to cater for this mass influx? Most will be living off benefits, especially in Britain which is an easy target for these people.

Kos - Immigrants Taking Over Tourist Hotels

Kos – Immigrants Taking Over Tourist Hotels

This invasion of people is crippling the economies of countries like Italy, Greece and Bulgaria and currently there is no answer, especially from the European Union idiots in Brussels! They just sit in their ivory tower and take no notice, probably hoping the whole crisis will disappear of its own accord. I have news for them: IT WILL NOT!

The situation in Bulgaria is now becoming desperate, for this year official data shows 25,000 people have applied for refugee status in Bulgaria in the past two years, as many as in the previous two decades combined. That may not sound like many but you have to remember that the country is both poor and small, and relies on EU financial support to receive and provide shelter, medical care and food for over 3,500 refugees housed in camps, and has already used 80 percent of the 4.2 million euros it received to that end.

Border FenceThings have become so desperate in the country that they have begun fencing off their border with Turkey, much like Hungary on its border with Serbia. No matter how desperate the situation in the country the usual ‘bleeding hearts’ people have condemned the move to put up the fence. Boris Cheshirkov, spokesman for the Bulgarian office of UNHCR is quoted as saying, “The barriers, not only in Bulgaria, are only increasing the risks to the people in a desperate situation, fleeing from war – but force them to put their lives in danger in the hands of smugglers and human traffickers,”

Boris Cheshirkov, Spokesman For The Bulgarian Office Of UNHCR

Boris Cheshirkov, Spokesman For The Bulgarian Office Of UNHCR

As you would expect, Human Rights groups and the United Nations’ refugee agency UNHCR have criticised the border fence, saying that barriers will not stop the refugee inflows. What these people forget is that the greater majority of ‘refugees’ coming to Europe are coming for economic reasons! They are not fleeing war in their homeland!

However, the problems in Bulgaria are nothing compared to those in Greece and Italy. As we all know, Greece is surviving on handouts from the ICC and the IMF but the refugee crisis is straining it to the limits. Only last week a total of 21,000 refugees landed on Greek shores. How much longer can the economy stand this pressure? We have all seen on the news the tens of thousands of migrants jamming the island of Kos among others. There are so many that removing them is a mighty task and costing millions of euros.

Enoch Powell

Enoch Powell

The simple answer is, this just cannot go on. Every day I read the comments of ordinary people on news items on the internet and it is clear they are close to having had enough. The governments will not take decisive action to solve this crisis and allow more and more to come to our shores. But every one that is successful gives ten more the idea that they too will be accepted. As I said, for every one that makes it there follows maybe twenty or more family members. This just cannot go on for if it does it will destroy Europe, its infrastructure, its economy and health care system. Eventually, as Enoch Powell predicted so long ago, there will be blood on the streets.

Time For Decisive Action Mr. Moon!

Time For Decisive Action Mr. Moon!

Europe desperately needs its government to make some decisive decisions to solve this crisis once and for all before we are swamped. But it is not only the E.U. that needs to get off its fat backside, but also the United Nations who could solve this entire crisis with a series of actions. I have often said on these pages that the U.N. must get together an international military force to go from country to country and wipe out all these terrorist groups that are responsible for this refugee debacle.

Is This What You Want For The World Mr. Moon?

Is This What You Want For The World Mr. Moon?

They should wipe out all groups like Islamic State, Boko Haram, al Shebab plus all the other 176 terrorist groups that infest this world. Once this is done all the refugees can go home and everything can return to normal. To many this may sound like an impossible task, but believe me, it is not! The U.N. acted 65 years ago when the North Koreans, under influence from the USSR attacked the south and solved the crisis. They can do the same with this one. It just needs someone with the balls to get things moving.

The Calais Farce Continues!

French Police Not Effective Enough

French Police Not Effective Enough

It amazes me how governments can be faced with an ever-growing crisis and yet do nothing but argue and whine without taking the necessary steps. The situation in Calais has gotten steadily worse as more and more migrants turn up there in the hope of getting to Britain, but neither government, not the French nor the British, are actually doing anything about it except blame the other side.

Now the French are saying that we should send troops across the channel to deal with the crisis rather than engage their own to sort things out.

It seems to me that when all this dies down and the recriminations start flying, the French want to be able to shout loudly, “It wasn’t us it was the British!”

They refuse to bring in sufficient police to handle the situation, they refuse to bring in their army and then scream and shout that it is all the fault of Cameron and the British government. These people are on French soil dammit!

Bruno Noel, who is head of the union for police deployed to the French port and Eurotunnel has been quoted as saying his men are “doing Britain’s dirty work.”

Words Of Wisdom?

Words Of Wisdom?

There have been several calls to bring in the military to check lorries and stop people illegally entering Britain, among them Nigel Farage of UKIP. For myself, I think he is right, the military should be sent in to clear the whole Calais area of migrants. The best and cheapest policy for all concerned is to round them up and ship them back to where they came from.

The gangs organizing these efforts by the migrants have last week started a new tactic to get the people into Britain. Holiday makers who are returning to Britain on the ferries are being offered cash rewards for smuggling migrants onto ferries and through customs in their vehicles. Most of those targeted are older couples because they come under less scrutiny from customs officials.

The entire scenario has come under criticism from François Crépeau, the UN’s special rapporteur on the human rights of migrants. He is reported to have said, “It is not an invasion. It is called mobility. It goes with globalisation. That is what we do when we go for vacation in Thailand.”

François Crépeau - An Idiot On Two Legs

François Crépeau – An Idiot On Two Legs

He even went so far as to accuse Britain of racism with his remark, “It is remarkable that in most of our countries we have nothing against numerous Germans and French coming in and we dislike profoundly that people with darker skin colours are coming in, so there are elements of racism in this nationalist, populist reaction to migration.”

Tory MP Andrew Percy branded Mr Crépeau’s comments “claptrap from a UN do-gooder” and said it was “disgusting to call British people racist for simply wanting to do what every other country does in the world, which is defend its border and protect people in other countries by cutting off a route which means they have to put their lives at risk”.

Illegals Attempting To Enter A Truck.

Illegals Attempting To Enter A Truck.

Britain’s trucking companies have been hit hard by this crisis and it has come to light that they have had to destroy millions of pounds worth of medication destined for NHS hospitals because of the backlog in Calais. The companies say they have been forced to bin the medication over concerns it could be contaminated by the presence of an intruder because it is meant to be transported in a secure environment.

Also, I have to ask why the French Police have not dismantled the burning tyre barricade that the striking ferry company workers put up to stop people entering the French terminal. Why have they allowed these people to perpetuate the chaos currently suffered by travellers? If these people want to strike by all means go ahead, but they should not be allowed to interrupt all traffic flow into the port. The French Police should have stepped in and removed them from roads in the very beginning.

I have to say that if sending British troops to operate on French soil is the only answer to this chaos, then the plan should go ahead, but they must be given a free hand to clear the port area of all migrants, and striking workers so that things can get back to normal quickly. This farce has gone on long enough!
