Calais crossing

ANOTHER 1,500 migrants storm the Channel Tunnel

Another 1,500 migrants – including one who was crushed to death by a lorry – stormed the Channel Tunnel in Calais overnight in the latest desperate attempt to reach Britain.

The dead migrant, a Sudanese man in his 20s or early 30s, slipped as he tried to get underneath a train inside the high-security zone surrounding the undersea link.

He was hit by a lorry which was preparing to drive on to the train and is thought to have died instantly, according to a police source in Calais who said hundreds of officers were involved in a second night of massive intrusions.

It comes after 2,200 migrants tried to gain entry to Eurotunnel’s French terminal on Monday, causing chaos for holidaymakers and freight traffic on both sides of the Channel.

France has sent in an extra 120 extra police to secure the terminals as Eurotunnel revealed it had now blocked more than 37,000 such attempts since January.

The escalating crisis has led to calls for the army to be drafted in to help search vehicles coming into Britain for stowaways.

    seriously just start shooting them. they will eventually stop coming. send the bodies back to country or origin with a bill for shipping and the bullets.

      Even easier, sharks and crabs have to eat.

    As long as there is no down side to trying the invaders will keep trying. In the countries these invaders come from life is cheap so they don’t see death as a problem when it’s a single death by crushing. Now if the cops used bullets to stop the invaders then a fatality rate of 60% would be a discouragement. The best option is start tranq rounding them and then shipping them home. Pick a country say Somalia and make it clear any illegal found will be dropped off their. That isn’t your country of origin? Not our problem, you find your way home from Somalia.

      These are the kinds of solutions that would work. AmicusC had a good one too.

    That’s like your vet telling you your dog is infested with 1500 fleas, and one of the fleas just died.

    • Ouch!

      • Jay Currie

        Funny you should say that. My great hairy beast of a dog gets the occasional flea infestation. During the summer, when fleas are worst, we take him for a daily swim. And then I use tweezers to kill any stragglers. You have to be vigilant. The few fleas which survive the swim need to be killed or they multiply.

        Lesson there somewhere.

          I use Advocate. Bella, my avatar, starts scratching if there is even one flea on her.

    The West has lost its mind is all I can say. This, just like the Muslim problem, is so easily fixed, not the least bit complicated, and yet they run around like chickens with their heads cut off claiming to be at a loss. It only requires two steps to fix. First cease providing any kind of welfare or assistance to any already there and impose heavy penalties to anyone hiring them. Second do whatever it takes to stop more from coming, be it water cannons, bullets or whatever. It wasn’t that long ago that our military’s first obligation was to defend our borders from invasion. Instead we keep rewarding bad behaviour and cannot understand why it continues.

      And if by any means whatsoever they are caught inside the country, send them back to wherever they came from with the clothes on their backs and nothing more.

      • Seneca III

        That would be quite expensive. Bullets are relatively cheap.
        Just ‘sayin.

        • DVult

          It may come to that.

    • Exile1981

      Most of these invaders are muslims… so it’s the same problem just two of it’s many heads.

  • Shebel

    What does nd mean? I was just making a post. All is gone.

  • David Murrell

    Just caught the super-hour CBC News story on this, by reporter Margaret Evans. She inerviewed one social-justice activist supporting the illegal migrants, and one illegal migrant. No migrant-opponents were interviewed. So CBC News supports the violent migrants.

      Social Justice Warrior, or SJW.

      • Blacksmith

        Or ‘shit stain’ that is a pretty accurate description as well.

      • Minicapt

        Social Justice Wanker; they don’t actually like ‘war’.


  • Blacksmith

    “The escalating crisis has led to calls for the army to be drafted in to help search vehicles coming into Britain for stowaways.”

    This would be a good idea if they would deport these invaders, We know that won’t happen though, they will be given a flat and signed up for public assistance.

  • Sweet_binky

    Let them into the tunnel. Then flood it.

  • Kathy Nelson

    France is the same kind of disgrace that Mexico is. Just another staging ground for vermin migration. No spine whatsoever in France. This bunch of illegal scumbags should even be IN France much less storming the channel tunnel entrance.
    Britain should close the tunnel until France cleans up their illegal alien mess.

  • Tanya

    Put the train into high gear and run the Frackers down!

    • Brett_McS

      Trains don’t have high gear; just one gear from zero to top speed.

    a british lib-tard MP called them brave ! ask those wagon drivers stuck in that 30 mile tail back ,

      The current estimate is that a newly arrived truck will get to the front of the queue in only 18 hours.
