The mayor of Calais wants to change a deal (the 2003 Touquet deal), in which it was agreed Britain can carry out checks in Calais to stop migrants trying to get to Britain.
Here’s how it works in a nutshell.
The Touquet deal protects our borders in Calais from illegal immigrants (I prefer the term refugees mind you) allowing the UK to vet them in France not in Britain.
That’s why there’s thousands of Africans going totally radge and risking their own and the lives of our long distance lorry drivers as they desperately try to get through the Chunnel.
But we’ve decided to leave Europe mainly so that we can reduce the number of ‘immigrants’. Or at least that’s what I’ve been hearing from England over the last couple of days.
Here’s the rub.
As the Calais mayor says “The British must take the consequences of their choice.”
What she means by that is… “Fuck you. It’s your problem now. We’ll let them through.”
And guess where they’ll end up?
See that big blue bit on the coast? About 400 miles south of the huge yellow bit? I’ve pointed it out with a red arrow for you.
That worked out well then, eh?
Incidentally, I think a lot of old people live there and they voted to muck their own pensions up too.
