Yeah that's the depressing thing isn't it. Some people have bene whipped up by hatred enough to question why people come here, use dehumanising names for them and also blame countries taking more people in than ourselves. It's so said how mainstream media has created such a nasty and hateful streak in people.The Times, Telegraph, Mail, Sun, Johnson and Patel all create a myth to suit their narrative. They don't actually tell the whole story. France already grants asylum to twice the number of people (not migrants!) as Britain does. There is a reason why some people want to get to Britain - it's either language, family connections or historical ties. That is the same reason why some people want to settle in France.
Ask yourself this; if a person is willing to attempt a crossing of the English Channel during November in an inflatable dingy how desperate must they be? For anyone who has been at sea, that is pretty terrifying odds.
