    You may have noticed all the recent headlines about the shortage of workers in hospitality, haulage, care, food processing, agriculture etc. Chances are a lot of these people will end up doing those jobs, so this is a good thing.
    All the evidence shows that migrants contribute more to the UK economy than they take from it, although you won't find that in the Mail or the Express.

    In France, no ID card no job, plenty of black market jobs in the UK

    All migrants aren't the same. Amongst those coming via France are convicted child rapists who last week successfully appealed their deportation, at £1000's of your taxpayers' money. I'm not sure whether you're suggesting child rape extortion, murder are good for the economy - the Mail and Express don't think so

    Re: Record number of migrants crossing

    I don't know why people feel compelled to drop into one of two rather extreme camps on this.

    Obviously, basic compassion shows that these are pretty desperate people who in most cases are just trying to improve their lives and probably want to get to the UK because they know people here.

    However, equally, you can't just have 1000 people (paying thousands to criminal gangs) crossing the channel every day and deny it's an issue. Where will they go? Where will they sleep? How will we transport them? What will it cost? What of the people living near where they are processed and housed? How do we check their health or criminal records? Are there any people exploiting the crossings? Are we happy that it basically means we are co-operating with international people traffickers?

    You can't just sit in some nice house somewhere and say it's no issue. There are issues created by this kind of migration. At the very least don't be blasť about the numbers. If you shrug your shoulders at 1000 a day, why not 2000? Why not 5000? At what point do you recognise something is amiss? All the while recognising that these people aren't fleeing an oppressive regime, they are in France.

    This article draws an interesting parallel between the EU's rhetoric on the Belarus border and on the French channel.

    If anyone here used the language against Macron that the EU uses against Lukashenko they would be deemed some far-right extremist within minutes.

    I just don't get it. It's a problem, lets try and solve it compassionately, but let's not have our heads in the sand and pretend there is no issue here. That helps no one.

    I am sure there would be jobs for them in the Met police, they are not doing so bad on rape, murder and the like.

    I thought we were taking back control of our borders with Brexit.

    Yes, of course that's what I'm suggesting.

    Order-order, that politically neutral website...... If that's one of your sources of "information" then it explains a lot!

    Re: Record number of migrants crossing

    Many reasons why migrants come here rather than stay in other European countries, although thousands do end up staying in other nations.

    The number one reason for refugees continuing their journey to the UK is that they have family here and it's reported that covers 50% of cases.

    They also may have already learned English and would find it easier to adapt and find work as a result. Also sometimes, for whatever reason, the traffickers they may have paid to get them out have already pre-determined they are going to the UK. These can be pretty dangerous guys, so your not going to argue with them really when everything is at stake.
