    Is this what taking back control looks like?

    Record 430 migrants cross English Channel in single day

    "Under international law, people have the right to seek asylum in any country they arrive in. There's nothing to say they must seek asylum in the first safe country reached.

    An EU law called Dublin III allows asylum seekers to be transferred back to the first member state they were proven to have entered.

    However, the UK is no longer part of this arrangement as it has now left the European Union. "

    Well done Boris and chums! Now you have taken back control, when are you going to get of your fat arses and actually be in control?

      Dear Alanis Morissette,

      Now THAT is ironic.

      "Taking back control" was only ever a platitude to appease the gullible and the kind of people who like to blame absolutely everything on immigration.

      Do we know if any of those 430 people are safe and well? I couldn't imagine making that crossing and my first thought is for their welfare.

      Imagine travelling many miles and crossing that channel to arrive in a country that largely doesnt want you and that wont give you any benefits or access to education, hospitals etc, having to doss down with family or a community and try to scrape a living, a life and imagine that being BETTER than what you have come from.

      always looking over your shoulder and working in jobs where employers turn a blind eye to paperwork so no holidays, sick pay, promotions etc.

      You think you have issues and a bit of a rough time and then you realise that you live in paradise compared to many many others and generally everything is rosy.
      You put your left leg in, your left leg out.

      In, out, in, out and shake it all about...............

      I still come across people who genuinely believe house prices are caused by immigrants. As if they land on the beach and think 'I know, I'll go and buy a 3-bed semi'. Others think the immigrants are offered a free house or a room in a 4 star hotel. Barking mad.
