    Hi folks
    Just to let you all know if you have a bike rack with a cover on take it off.we were
    Shopping at auchan Calais wednesday morning usual stuff wine and beer.then we decided to go and look what aldi had I knew where aldi was so my sister behind me followed us.when we stopped my brother in law said your bikes seem to be loose.the four of us were at the back of my van and the bikes did seem wonky.my bike rack is a newish Thule that fits on my towball when I pressed the pedal to allow the bike to fall towards me an illegal
    Immigrant fell out of the cover shocking all of us!!! The next morning we woke at the yacht basin to find 3 other bike rack covers had been tampered with

    I heard a story recently about one who had climbed up the rear rack and was lying flat on the roof lol ......i saw hundreds of them around calais back in July just shows they'd try anything

    I was following Tude through calais laughing with my wife Debbie, Tudes sister, about how crap his bike rack was rocking about all over the place, anyway when we arrived at Aldi I proceeded to take the p**s out of tude shaking his really wobbly bike rack, he came up with the excuse that the tilting mechanism wasn't locked and when he tried to show me, something moved under the cover which made him jump back shouting "THERES SOMETHING IN THERE" and out popped a Sudanese guy much to our amazement. He wasn't aggressive or rude, in fact he was quite polite just saying he wanted to go to England. Anyway poor lad had a bit of a walk back to the Auchen.
    What Tude neglected to tell you was that his partner Caroline was really upset and felt really sorry for him, in fact when they were at the Auchen the following day the Sudanese boy was there so she cooked him a croque monsieur and went across and gave it to him, bloody soft these women.:rolleyes:

    We can back on the WET bank holiday monday last weekend. We did not see any would be illegal imagrants. Howevere the very chaty female border control officer said they were targeting motorhomes and a few owners had been threatened with knives.

    Of course ....because everyone knows Britain is great at helping every lost cause in the world .......except the ones who already live here!

    For them it's cuts and more taxes

    Why even be bothered about these immigrants coming over here ? no one knows them, no one knows what they're capable of or whatever they're running from to come here - I say any do gooders who feel sorry for these people should have them living next to them or in the same street and then lets see how you sleep at night when you hear a creaking on the stairs at night !

    A useful warning thanks, we avoid Calais, other than needing to get to the chunnel terminal, always shopping further out on the way in, I have always thought Calais prices might be loaded for us Brits, with the added immigrant issues I definitely will find somewhere else to shop.
