With the migrant crisis growing in the English Channel and the French demanding £30 million from the British tax payer to stop migrants leaving France, crossing the English Channel to get into Britain illegally, many people have taken to the news channels to vent their frustrations.
Former UKIP immigration spokesperson Paul Oakley said that these migrants have avenues to get into Britain legally, they just choose to jump the que by crossing the English Channel, arriving illegally.
Paul said: “Now what we have at the moment in the United Kingdom is a complete overhaul of our immigration system, Whereby people from all over the world can now apply under the same scheme that people in the EU used to be able to do, so there are plenty of safe means for applying to be a British Citizen and these people are trying to jump the queue effectively by performing this dangerous activity of crossing the channel which costs us. Lots of money.”
“They are Hoping to turn up in this country and then disappear. These people are not persecuted.”
The RT presenter then asks shouldn’t Britain seek easier avenues for migrants to gain legal access into Britain? Paul Oakley responded by saying: “Well, it’s not the government’s responsibility to find a safe and legal route to those who are seeking Asylum. Absolutely no, why should we?”
“in the background to all this is the UN migration compact which is a malignant concept, whereby immigration is going to be facilitated.”
“I would much prefer it if the government were to adopt the Australian system and say to people who arrive by sea, if you turn up on our Shores by way of little boats, then you will refused Asylum. It’s a simple as that”
When asked about Priti Patel and if she’s doing enough to stop this crisis. Mr Oakley said: “Mrs. Patel. She’s not Furious enough, predecesor Sajid Javid declared this a major emergency way back in December of 2018 and the government simply isn’t doing enough to turn these people back.”
“these migrants these criminal traffickers ought to be told that if you land in a dinghy on the Kent Coast you are going to be refused Asylum and that will stop it.”
When asked are the french doing enough to stop illegal migrants crossing the English Channel Paul said: “We don’t want these people being basically palmed off on us. Perhaps the French should be much stronger on their own borders because let’s face it.”
“Most of these so-called refugees have cross country, after country, after country. If the French at their other borders would stop these people from coming in then they wouldn’t have a problem in Calais either, but that’s entirely up to them”
“The weather’s been very nice over the last few months lovely and sunny flat calm seas, when it gets a bit more rough, when it gets a bit more treacherous, people are going to start dying, and let’s get absolutely clear about the risk. It is not the fault of the British government. It will not be the fault of the British government if these people start dying, it’s their own fault, and the fault of the people traffickers. That’s it.”
