Yesterday when Nigel Farage exposed what was going on in the English Channel, the mood on social media turned very quickly and rightly so. The majority saw what we all suspected was going on, but it hurt, even more, to know it was a fact after seeing the handover happen. To see the French ship escort the migrant vessel across the border into British waters was a massive eye-opener, and to be honest, it made me very angry.
We then saw the UK border force turn up to take the migrants back to Dover after witnessing them being enabled to break the law with the help from the French authorities. One of the most devastating things I saw on the short clip was the UK and French authorities threatening to commandeer the vessel Farage was filming from, because they wanted to hide the handover of the boat. Many people now want questions answered. And rightly so. But this may leave the Government vulnerable.
To remedy this situation, the Government need to be straight with people, but unfortunately, we all know that won’t happen, and in this instance, there may be a good reason. If the UK government were to come clean, admitting that the UK can’t do anything while we are still in the structures of the EU, you would see a mass free for all in the English Channel that would be overwhelming. That is why the Government are sidestepping the public into focusing on future laws that would snap into action when we leave the EU in its entirety.
This also gives the correct optics for now as it shows strength from the Government on what is coming. If anything, with Farage highlighting this crisis, it has crystallised our reasoning for why we want out of this corrupt political foreign entity. It may also give Boris and his team, a more enhanced focus on why leaving the bloc in its entirety, is paramount to putting things right.
This is only one man’s opinion who seeks clarity amongst this crisis. What’re your thoughts?
