The RNLI said a lifeboat crew was sent to the Channel at around 4am this morning. A number of people were seen being brought off a lifeboat on stretchers in Dover.

A spokesperson for the French Coastguard said: "This Saturday, August 12 the regional operational centre for surveillance and rescue (CROSS) Gris-Nez is informed by the public service patrol boat Cormoran that a migrant boat was sinking off Sangatte. The Cormorant then launched its semi-rigid to rescue the castaways. In parallel, the CROSS Gris Nez mobilized.

Why don't the French pass a law to prevent migrant boats crossing the channel?

  Because they are about as willing to do anything about it as our own crooked politicians are, get used to it,  this is the future of the UK.

Instead of paying the French to do sod all we should have insisted the money was to let our troops patrol the shores (think they would have punctured any dinghys.)


Someone said 600,000 had come to the UK in the last year,  they can't all have been in fear of their lives,  I don't mind the Afghans who have arrived as I feel they were let down by Dominic Raab.

Sadly it was bound to happen.
A man in Yorkshire was given a jail sentence of 11 yrs,for people smuggling.
He got 2 women to hire a motorhome,they were caught bringing in Albanians and will be sentenced later.
A further man is saught. I don't know all the details,but motorhome trips are not cheap.
Politicians and nappies must be changed often,and for the same reason

Ministers are facing renewed pressure to tackle boat crossings in the Channel after six migrants died when a vessel sank off the French coast on Saturday.

Labour said people smugglers were "running rings" around the government, while a Tory backbencher said the UK had a "moral duty to act".

The government has made "stopping the boats" one of its five priorities.

Investigations continue into Saturday's incident in which 59 people were rescued and two may still be missing.

The overloaded vessel, which got into difficulty and capsized 12 miles (20km) off Sangatte, was said to be one of a number of migrant vessels which set off on Saturday in the hope of reaching the UK.

On the same day, French coast guards rescued 54 others from a different migrant boat after it capsized 6 miles (10km) off the coast of Calais. They were brought to the port of Dunkirk.

Shadow cabinet minister Bridget Phillipson said criminal gangs were "running rings" around the government claiming it was because the asylum backlog is "completely out of control".

She accused the government of presiding over a home office which was "increasingly shambolic and completely incompetent"

"There is a total failure to do the basics: process cases, get decisions made as quickly as possible and then you can take action. If people don't have a right to be in this country and for those that do you can make sure that they're allowed to get on and live the rest of their lives happily," she told BBC Breakfast.


How many people cross the Channel in small boats?  Channel migrant crossings pass 100,000 since 2018 
How is the UK stopping Channel crossings?




  • Calls for action have also come from within the Conservative Party. Backbench MP and ex-party chairman Sir Jake Berry said "only radical changes can truly turn the tide".

    Writing in the Sunday Express[/size], he said: "We have a moral duty, both to our own citizens and those asylum seekers, to act."

    He called for the [size=inherit]UK to leave the European Convention of Human Rights , which he claimed would continue to block "any and all attempts to stop the boats".

    I have been reading a general conversation forum ( not this one) amongst many things there is a 200 post thread about asylum seekers ,some are for some against ,but not one post has actually grabbed the bull by the horns and said “ the U.K. is a soft touch ,free housing ,money ,nhs, etc , they have gone through civilised countries to come here ,not one said stop the benefits and you will stop the illegals ,”.

    One could be forgiven for thinking the government are deliberately encouraging migrants to cross the channel when you look at what is apparently offered to them.  If they really wanted to put a stop to this, they could have already done so.  Not only that, but we have a government who never seem to have extra money for public services, yet can still shake the magic money tree and find millions every day to accommodate the migrants.

      They are all WEF sock puppets, there is no intention to put a stop to it, the old men of Davos dictate the policy and the criminals in Parliament implement them, Britain is done for, good luck to Hungary, Poland, Italy, Holland etc. who seem to be showing signs of waking up to this madness, shout out to those people in Ireland for trying to resist the invasion of their country by the third world hordes.

    The people of Ireland are making a stand ( not reported by the main media watch on you tube which will soon be censored ),

    Totally agree with you.  It appears the government are getting hold of more barges to house the migrants (or at least trying to), which seems to be a clear indication of their intention with regards to all this.

    The people of Ireland NEED to make a stand. Even Sinn Fein have joined in with the WEF agenda and sold their people down the river……
