As Nigel Farage highlights the migrant crisis, the flow of illegals crossing the Channel has continued. Yesterday it was reported that four boats came into Dover carrying more that 30 illegals.
What is shocking is the amount of hotels that we all know will be block-booked by the government to house these people. We put out an opinion piece a couple of days ago asking has the government done enough to tackle the current illegal migration crisis? An overwhelming majority of you said “No” they have not done enough.
This whole situation seems to be repeated day after day. The routine seems to be the same, boat leaves France, the French navy escort them into British waters, they call the coast guard, UK Border Force picks them up, they are taxied to Dover, they are helped on to shore, processed and coached to a hotel. In what way is this routine a deterrent?
Why are the UK government so reluctant to deal with this problem? Why do the government put out empty statements time after time to divert attention, while the situation continues? The optics to all this doesn’t seem right.
One thing is for sure; the government are seriously underestimating the feeling of disappointment that is coming from the British public. It’s hard to understand why the feeling isn’t being received or resonating within Downing Street.
Boris Johnson has to realise that his inaction of this situation isn’t putting his leadership in a good light if anything, it’s giving the impression that he isn’t the one in control .
We voted for secure borders, not open borders. The vote that was given to the Tories in December 2019 which gained them an 80 seat majority was on a lent vote. So many people on social media who were all very pro-Boris, are now starting to turn away, becoming disenfranchised once again saying what’s the point they never listen.
So many people want to believe in Boris. They want to believe he’s doing his utmost in tackling this problem but with the lack of inaction, people, unfortunately, are starting to look elsewhere. People want to trust politicians, but how can they if all they see is empty words. Boris, It’s time to walk the talk.
