Several people including two children and possibly a baby have died attempting to cross the channel from France to the UK. The question is why, when these people are already in Europe and safe, are they so eager to get here? Of course healthcare here is free, but additionally as I understand it benefits in the UK may not be quite as generous as those in some of the other European countries but they are easier and quicker to access, so would bringing our benefits system into line with that of France/Germany etc., have the desired effect - and the added bonus of putting the traffickers, some of whom are alleged to be earning $15,000 a night - exactly where they should be .... out of business?

Well they ain't trying to get to the UK , for free school dinners for their kids are they.
Amazing , Britain has Liberated France from two world wars ,and now we are begging france to liberate the uk from immigrants. It must be very hard for some proud Brits to have to Beg to France for help
Sorry, Sunk. I won't refer to you again unless you refer to me.
What a beautiful family lost and the baby still missing. Heartbreaking.
You are correct, Atheist. Only a tiny percentage of asylum seekers ask for asylum in the UK.
how many just are let go into the country, how many have crossed the channel in the last year alone, thousands and more coming every day.
i despise the whole wretched government of UK and France for not getting to grips with this problem. We have very hard working families, struggling with the current crisis - we can't be doling out food and shelter to those, many of whom are indeed economic migrants and should be shipped out.
""Five years ago, Angela Merkel threw open Germany's borders to more than a million migrants.""
Germany is now deporting, forcibly, thousands on flights out after incarceration. They are accompanied on the flights, by heavily armed guards that outnumber them, and they are sometimes shackled for the safety of the guards. No luvvie lawyers there then. The illegal immigrants are getting wind of this and fleeing in their thousands before they are arrested. Guess where they are heading for. Criminals, gansters, terrorists, murderers, and jihadists amongst them. Don't say you weren't warned.
In my opinion its absolutely not a 'beautiful family lost' it's illegal immigrants paying to get into the country for handouts from our pockets. They take the risk and tough if it goes wrong.
Sorry if this offends, but I have absolutely no compassion for this lot of illegals who come over here then do nothing to add value to our way of live save take everything that is given to them then complain and expect us to cow tow to thier medieval way of life.
It was reported on ITV News at 10 that the parents were warned by friends not to attempt a channel crossing at that time because the English Channel was in a full swell with high waves. They were advised to wait another time but still went ahead. They were victims of their own stupidity and were complicit in the deaths of their own children. The kids would of probably stood a better chance of survival in Aleppo or wherever without their parents.
No different really to the the little mite who washed up on a Turkish beach.The family had accomodation in Turkey and the father had a job there. They eventually wanted to get to Canada. The rest is history.
Read it and weep.
‘Is that the police?’
‘Yes. 101 call centre here, how may I direct your call?’
‘Dunno mate but there’s a bit of a kerfuffle going on off the Isle of Wight …’
‘Can I stop you there, kerfuffle is not a word we allow to be used, it could be discriminatory or even a hate word. I will have to ask officers to call and make an appointment to speak to you about your choice of words and any incident .’
‘No. No that’s no use, this looks dangerous out there’
‘Oh, dangerous you say, first make sure you are in a safe place. You are? Well in that case I can redirect your call the H.M Coastguard.’
‘Hello Coast Guard, it looks like there is a problem with a super tanker off the IOW!’
‘Yes, don’t worry, Sir, we have it hand. We’ve sent a rescue helicopter out to take a look’
‘It doesn’t need rescuing it’s going around in circles.‘
‘Yes, we are aware of that, thank you for your call'.
‘Hello, is that the National TV News Desk?’
‘Well no, not actually, we are all working from home at the moment, ok?‘
‘Well I dunno if you know but there’s a super tanker in distress off the Isle of Wight, the Captain made a radio call and says he’s in danger as stowaways have taken control and everybody is locked in a safe room.’
‘O.K leave it with me I’ll contact the government agencies and find out what’s going on’.
‘Hello, is that …’
‘Department of Transport P.R. team, may I help?’
‘Yes, National T.V News desk here, what do you know about this tanker in distress off the Isle of Wight?’
‘Nothing mate, nothing to do with us – have you tried the Coast Guard H.Q?’
‘Yes, but they say it’s nothing to do with them, they only do rescue operations,.’
‘Oh, try Plod, it’s in Hampshire, they will know what to do.’
‘Tried that, mate they are all in a strategy meeting about enforcing Covid guidance.’
‘Well in that case try the Home Office.’
‘Hello Home Office, this tanker that’s in trouble in the Channel … What do you mean what channel, you know – the English Channel …’
‘Can I stop you there, it’s nothing to do with us, we only deal with migrants who have arrived in boats here. Try the Foreign Office.’
‘Hello Foreign Office ….’
‘Not us mate, try the cabinet office or failing that the MoD’.
‘Hello M.O.D police, there’s a super tanker been taken over in the English Channel by stowaways.’
‘Nothing to do with us we only deal with terror incidents not stowaways, stowaways are the responsibility of the civil police, not us. You could try the Cabinet Office there are 7000 of them there, if they are not still working from home, somebody will know what to do.’
‘Cabinet Office….. yes we know, thanks. A Covid Marshal on the IoW told a Community Support Officer who told the police safer neighbourhood team and they reported it to us, we’re trying to locate the P.M. but he’s in a top level meeting about free school meals at the moment and can’t be disturbed, but Dominic C is around somewhere I’ll tell him …’
‘Hi Dom, Annabel here, from the Cabinet, yes, yes, remember me now – good, look there’s a little prob with a super tanker in the English Channel. Yes Dom, I’ve tried Priti, and Gavin, and Grant and it’s nothing to do with them apparently. Dominic R wants to send in the Special Boat Service and so does Ben, but the problem is the only local operational frigates only run in cold water or is it warm water? I forget and, in any case, they are still tied up somewhere. He’s not sure about the Special Boat Service because they are training in Wales this week and that Dripfort bloke or whatever his name is has locked Wales down and closed the borders, and in any case after your review we didn’t know if we still had any operational …’
‘Ok. Right. Will do.’

To be continued.


‘Hello Navy, this is the Cabinet Office here. Can you send a frigate and some blokes and deal with that tanker problem in the English Channel? I’ve had a quick word with everybody and the PM said he wants it sorted ASAP before the French find out and think we can’t handle it and try it on over the illegals in the dinghies. And what if they think in a ‘no deal’ we couldn’t defend our fishing boats …. Yes …. Me too. Thanks for your help’.
‘Over now to our English Channel Correspondent working from the safety of his home in Birmingham. Alistair – what’s the latest position regarding the stowaways taking over the super tanker?’

‘Well, difficult to say really, Martin, but what I’ve gathered from sources on ‘WhatsApp’ and Instagram it looks as if the combined sources of U.K Border Force, H.M Coastguard, and the Police Air Arm didn’t work, so some bloke called Nigel hired a fishing boat to go and take a close look himself, took some film and sent it to the Cabinet Office. Dom Raab got involved and sent in the Special Boat Service who sorted the incident in less than 10 minutes. Apparently it could have been over even quicker than that, but the operation was slowed down by the inclusion of Human Rights Lawyers who wanted assurance that the terrorists – sorry stowaways – would receive a warm welcome when landed in a port of their choice and five star accommodation befitting the terrible ordeal they had just been through. Now back to you in the studio.’

‘Thank you Alistair, we have contacted the Department for Trade and asked what the tanker was carrying and were reassured by a spokesperson that the crew and cargo were safe. And now in further news …’
