Welcome to Italy: this is what a real immigration crisis looks like

Let us suppose that along the coast of Normandy up to one million non-EU migrants are waiting to be packed like sardines in small unseaworthy vessels and to cross the English Channel.

Let us suppose that first the Royal Navy, then the navies of a dozen other EU countries, start to search for all such vessels in the Channel right up to the French coast, out into the North Sea and the Atlantic even, and then ferry all the passengers on board to Dover, Folkestone, Hastings, Eastbourne and Brighton in a surreal modern-day never-ending version of the Dunkirk evacuation of 1940. Would the British government agree to take them all? What of the British people? And if they did agree, what would the British government and people do with all the migrants?

How would they cope?

    Italy should just give “the boot” to those who they feel they don’t want in their country.

    Is ironic that the British Government feels that the solution is more foreign aid, when it is foreign aid that has allowed all those quasi-failed African states to develop such huge unsustainable populations. It is that surplus population that make up the economic migrants that are flooding across the Mediterranean, Non of them fit the cultures they invade and simply want all the free stuff a developed country offers, in the end ,if they are not stopped by whatever force necessary, they will destroy that which attracted them. I think the numbers to date are slowly waking people up to the very real possibility of being swamped and rendered irrelevant in their own countries, except for Sweden of course ,whose group determination to commit cultural suicide is unmatched

    Is it just me, or does anybody else see the supreme irony in this plaintive bleat?

    Europe made its own bed. Now let them sleep in it.

      Agreed. But I also have to wonder about a free country that elects the first black man that runs for president. Then in spite of his obvious lack of qualifications, unknown allegiances and thinly-veiled racism, re-elects him. Face it Norm, we’ve all walked into the same trap.

    Once the bed has been made, Europeans will flee persecution.
