Calais mayor bans food handouts to migrants as French port city tries to stop a new camp being set up

The mayor of Calais banned food handouts to migrants on Thursday as city authorities struggle to prevent a new camp being set up barely four months after the “Jungle” shanty-town was demolished.

Natacha Bouchart of the centre-Right party, Les Républicains, said she would take measures “to prevent the distribution of meals to migrants”.

Notices warning charities of the restrictions have been posted around the site of the former camp.

  • They are like sea gulls. Stop feeding them and they will go elsewhere.

      Yup don’t feed the shit hawks.

      These seagulls will barge into your house and snatch the bread out of your mouth if you don’t feed them.

      • Watchman

        You just have to hope that these seagulls don’t have a ‘sexual emergency’ while in your house as well.

          And STD.

      • Not if we use fire hoses on them.

      Stupid women will still feed the bears.

      • It’s starving and chained and a wild animal.

        People who do this to animals should be chained themselves to see how they like it.

    Could they not take the weary travelers into their houses and prepare for them tasty and nutritional meals.

    Kind of like the don’t feed the bear signs. We all know what happens when people feed bears. Eventually, the bears may attack and kill someone for food….

    Oh, that’ll work. Why doesn’t he just cut out the middleman, and ban the migrants from forming camps? /sarc

    Thought experiment: maybe they need to have a ‘toxic immigrant’ scheme, where out of the thousands of meals, one is poisoned and will kill whoever eats it, but dozens of other meals will just make the eater ill. This scheme is meant to reflect the effect that the immigrants have on the original population and use the excuses that the apologists have to let in an unlimited number of immigrants: not all meals are toxic, just a tiny minority; not all meals will make you sick, just a small minority. Would the immigrants accept these meals then? Why would a country accept unlimited unvetted migrants then?

      I like this compairisment, its fitting.

  • Bataviawillem

    Giving the food is aiding and abetting the enemy, in times of war (and in my opinion they are) that means the death penalty.

  • FactsWillOut

    If I ran the place, I’d be feeding them…to lions, for the entertainment and edification of the people.

    Are you not entertained???!!!
