Whilst it's all very sad, an armed bank robber is 'only trying to make it better for himself and his family' too.
There are legal ways to enter and claim asylum, but these boat people have chosen to risk the channel to try and enter illegally.
What the fudge is wrong with you? Comparing them to armed bank robbers. Are you f**king joking. Take a long hard look at yourself.
Who's comparing them to armed bank robbers, you flapping tit.
Both can be explained using this blokes reasoning.

He was but his brother has managed to sink even lower. He’s good value, fairly unhinged, occasionally touches on some gold. His tv programme The Savage Eye was f**king quality, no idea how he got RTE to show it:

The UK could move a lot of the asylum refugees that it is processing to camps in Northern Ireland, perhaps set them up in places like Armagh and Enniskillen. There are about 125,000 in the UK currently being processed.

Good to see and hear that there are still certain Westminster types that actually look at facts and propose realistic solutions rather than the weapons grade bullshît released by BoZo and his cronies or the right-wing media.

I think what will ultimately happen is some sort of offshore processing. Ascension Island or the Falklands. They have to break the link between getting in a dingy and getting accommodation in the UK.

The Labour open door policy won't come back, no matter what they want. There are legal routes for asylum seekers to enter the country - 40% f Londoners weren't born in this country, for example. To suggest that people who jump into a boat to cross the channel are coming to the UK to be nurses and doctors is ridiculous.

Clearly not true.

Until the UK govt rectifies this there will continue to be traffickers and deaths of desperate people who could not claim asylum through official/legal channels.

Of course there is legal ways and applications are processed and approved all the time. If you believe that those crossing the channel are genuine refugees Frances disgusting treatment of them is even more evil.

I’m more right wing than wee Tory McRight from Rightville in Rightshire, but I largely agree with yer man (as part of my pan-European solution suggested a few pages back & repeated below)

Those visa numbers would form part of the agreed quota for UK refugees - simples.

In short, if the govt communicated the visa scheme as part of a wider initiative - and that, once total numbers are agreed, more boat people = fewer other people - it could defo be pitched to the country.

And if my solution was followed, of a lot of the frog route refugees that were originally Med route ones, my proposed Paneuropean Initiative for Kindness towards Inbound Emigrant Souls (P.I.K.I.E.S.) would have picked them up already and transited a few to us, and PIKIES would also patrol La Manche to ensure Eurasian refugees crossed safely.

As I said earlier though, this would require a paneuropean solution, based on a treaty, committed funding and PIKIES to run it. I’m not, however, confident that the EU has the gumption, drive or will to organise it (c.f. Tory McEtc...), much less the EU collaborating with a UK they’re determined NOT to work with (& this is reciprocated by us, before I’m, er, swarmed..)

Which is fücking shocking, given the lives at stake.

For ref, my PIKIES suggestion:
Benthos wrote: Thu Nov 25, 2021 12:27 am Why can’t the EU:
- get all member heads together
- agree a fund/secretariat which, to take the pressure off Greece, Italy and (to a lesser extent) Spain, handles all border issues at the southern border, including patrolling the Med and running transit camps
- get each member country to agree to X refugees p.a.
- process the refugees crossing the Med, allocating and transporting them as per the above agree quotas
- reconvene HOGs when quotas filled, or (last resort) send em back

PS the Brits should fund and contribute to the above process, Brexit or no Brexit
I’ve been looking for a decent job for fücking ages, so give me the mandate to bang some recalcitrant heads, têtes, Köpfe etc. together and a budget, and I’d give it a fücking good lash.

They are fleeing France and Belgium and the EU. Patel and Boris know that the vast majority of the British Electorate see these people as Economic Migrants (as do I). I am sure that the British Electorate want the Australian solution.

The Refugee advocates can go on about international law and in particular the 1951 UN Convention on Refugees until they are blue in the face, won't change the view of the British Electorate and that is all Boris and Patel care about. The big weakness of International Law is that there is no enforcement mechanism. For all the outrage about Australia, nothing actually happened to Australia.

I bet most bordies have run more complicated projects than my proposed PIKIES - I know I have. So, it’s safe to assume the PM nous to plan & deliver this is not what’s lacking.

What’s lacking is states(wo)men with vision, compassion & balls. Whereas those with the gift to make this happen are the sorry sacks of shit that pass for modern politicians, and the thicko cünt voters (of all stripes) they moronically think they have to pander to.

An interesting comparison is France https://www.worlddata.info/europe/france/asylum.php

Roughly twice the UK
Makes you wonder how many of those failed asylum seekers ended up in calais camps or the UK.
Not enough obviously.
If they fail to qualify for asylum, you should ship them home, not harbour them in shanty towns on the coast and cheer them on whilst they make dangerous attempts to cross the channel.

It would not happen if the land of milk & honey and racism was to take its fair share of the burden.

Ain't going to happen obviously because no foreigners should reach global Britain.

What burden? They have failed to make a case for asylum ... don't just pass the buck with a gallic shrug like inhuman monsters

:thumbup:
The Labour open door policy won't come back, no matter what they want. There are legal routes for asylum seekers to enter the country - 40% f Londoners weren't born in this country, for example. To suggest that people who jump into a boat to cross the channel are coming to the UK to be nurses and doctors is ridiculous.
Clearly not true.

Until the UK govt rectifies this there will continue to be traffickers and deaths of desperate people who could not claim asylum through official/legal channels.
Dont be a dick.

I am a migrant.
It took 5 years for me to get a UK passport, at one point it looked like my family would have to leave the UK as the Govt of the time were being so restrictive on who could stay in the UK
That was with me having 3 out of 4 Grandparents being born in the UK.

There are legal means for getting into the UK.

UK Net migration pre covid was running at + 250k a year.

Blame the French police who ignored pleading messages as they drowned.
