How’s that Brexit working out for you, Nige?
Took in 282,000 immigrants from outside of the EU last year, huh? Highest number ever, you say?
I’ll reckon you might be feeling a nip bit of regret after making the decision to disappear from politics as soon as the “leave” vote was secured, eh then, lad? Could be the battle wasn’t quite yet finished, were it then, eh?
Well, stiff upper lip, old boy.
Look on the bright side – you can always blame the French!
For the second time in a matter of weeks, Nigel Farage has filmed the French navy escorting illegal migrants into British waters before handing them over the UK Border Force.
Britain’s most recognizable populist leader on Tuesday morning took to the waters of the English Channel to document the disturbing uptick in illegal migrant traffic headed to Britain from the beaches of France.
In a video uploaded to social media, Farage gives a detailed account of the situation that’s playing out a few hundred meters from the boat which he’s filming from. The Brexit party leader describes how the French navy and the UK Border Force are working hand in glove to make sure illegal migrants make it to British shores.
“Here you can see in the background, the big vessel, that’s the French Navy. That boat escorted the rib, you can see the rib on the left-hand side – a little white boat – into British waters. Then you’ve got the lifeboat. Then you’ve got the Border Force, and that’s 13 more people that are coming to the United Kingdom that will be allowed to stay.”
“Last week, we put huge pressure on the home secretary. We’ve given the French 61 million quid to stop illegal boat migrants coming into British waters. What we witnessed again today, was the navy, the French navy, escorting them into our waters.”
“It’s an outrage. It’s got to stop,” Farage concluded.
I just witnessed the French Navy escorting illegal migrants into British waters, despite the money we are paying them.
They even tried to prevent us from filming the handover, as you can see in the video.
This is an outrage and a scandal. Time for the government to get a grip. pic.twitter.com/hT8ctbZag5

In a previous video released on May 20th, Farage filmed another dinghy with about 20 illegal migrants on board being escorted by the French Navy into British waters. Farage urged the Home Secretary to take immediate action to put a stop to it.
In the first five months of 2020, roughly 1,600 illegal migrants have made their way to British shores from the beaches of France. To put things in perspective, 1,850 boat migrants successfully reached Britain from across the Channel during the whole of 2019.
After all, we need to focus on what really matters. It’s not the massive flood of immigrants – it’s the fact that almost 1% of them don’t have the right papers!
Where can we get some papers for these new Britons, Nigel? Surely, there must be some ink and stamps around there somewhere?
Those dastardly, frog soup drinking Frenchies sure do hate British Freedom, I tell you what. But, just as soon as we can get some papers for this very small percentage of total immigration, Britain will finally be saved.
