A journalist said that the 1500 migrants who tried to storm the Tunnel at Calais last night was a French problem, and that there would be 'knock-on' effects for us Brits in Kent on the other side of the Channel until they sorted it out.
The British government is keen not to upset the French by telling them to sort it out properly, and the French are threatening to let them all over if we don't do more to help them to sort it out. Strike action by the French in this case is inaction.
Who is really to blame for this mess? Tony Blair, George W Bush and the bankers.
The idiotic war in Iraq is a direct reason for the world-wide (not just Middle-Eastern) perfect and unstable conditions to encourage the extreme terrorism which has caused the wholesale attempts of thousands to escape to safe havens and the exploitation of them by people-traffickers; and the lack of financial resources to deal with them is a direct result of the short-term greed of the bankers who have all but caused the collapse of the global economy.
They - the Americans (by which I mean the administration, not the ordinary people, just to be clear) and the bankers - are still at it. There is a 'security' system on the net called 'World Check', and if an innocent mosque is blacklisted by them (by having the word 'terrorism' in red beneath their name), then the British bank will close their account for no given reason, forcing them to open an account within the U.A.E. after many years trading peacefully with Barclays or Lloyds, etc. This happened to Finsbury Park mosque in London, just because Abu Hamsa once preached hatred there before being evicted by genuine Moslems.
Never before - or at least since the Middle Ages during the Crusades - has there been a more inept and incompetent system of world government in the thrall of the short-term money-men to the detriment of the people it is supposed to represent.
It's a mess which won't be sorted in my lifetime.
