    We came through at 8 this morning having overnighted at Boulogne. Our train delayed by 30 mins. Saw no 'foriegners' and approach road was clear. No problems at all. Did see one imigrant on the M20 though being apprehended by two police officers. Hope they put him on a lorry going to France!

    I reckon we should get a fleet of lorries with easy access for our immigrant friends and when they all aboard hiding we turn round and drop them off in italy or elsewhere

    Don't know if any one else has noticed this but they have put a wire fence around the tunnel terminal in France , maybe 20 foot high BUT there is a two foot gap at the bottom where anything can get under, don't understand it.

    Well seeing as we import more than we export most of the trucks going back Europe are empty there should be plenty of room for a few thousand a day

    They can't do that, the immigrant caught here becomes our problem. Similarly, the French can't ship theirs over the border into Italy.

    The cynic would suspect this provides an incentive for European countries to pass on the immigrants to the next country on their route.

    Strange really. :Eeek: Families from Luton fly to Turkey, then on to Syria, whilst at the same time families from Syria swim the Mediterranean then try to get here. This surely must be the Eastern equivalent of the schools exchange programme?? :(
