Theresa May: economic migrants fleeing across Mediterranean should be returned to Africa

Theresa May has said economic migrants crossing the Mediterranean to seek better lives in Europe should be returned to Africa to thwart the “terrible callous trade in human beings”.

The Home Secretary suggested she wanted to remove the incentive for desperate Africans, and the people smugglers who take advantage of them, to put their lives at risk by boarding unseaworthy crafts.

    • I am not so sure. Cameron is no leader and frankly belongs to that EU class.

        The EU would work if it had mostly right wing governments.

          The sooner the EU is dissolved as a disastrous post-war mistake the better before it officially becomes the Eurabian-African continent.

      Can’t the Europeans accept a hundred million refugees?

    Allowing any refugees at all is just opening a back door to enter a country without following procedure. All this allowing the refugees to stay is just another step on the pathway to a world without any borders. Politicians would do well to remember that they are paid to look after the problems of the country that pays them not take on more problems from elsewhere.

      I agree, but then they couldn’t sell themselves as more tolerant and enlightened than the great unwashed masses they rule. Us.

    I heard today that islamic countries off Burma are refusing to take anymore muslim boat people. Where is the outrage from Western liberals about that?

    Do what the Aussies do, send them back in covered lifeboats. The Aussies tow them three quarters of the way, provide them with a compass and enough fuel to make it back safely, but not enough to return to Australia. It worked, and it will work in the Med as well.

    Off the Barbary Coast (Libya doesn’t really exist any more), the Royal Navy has just taken aboard 400 invaders from 4 inflatable boats. Lets see where they end up. I can’t see Italy letting them disembark.
