Ah, this takes me back.
Remember in 2015, when this so-called “migrant crisis” was in full swing, and we thought these invasions were the worst thing ever?
We had no idea how good we had it.
I’d kill to go back to a simpler, more care-free time when the biggest thing we had to worry about was our countries being swamped with tens of millions of dark-skinned terrorists.
The crisis in the English Channel has seen double the number of illegal boat migrants land in the first nine months of the year as the whole of 2020.
Whether through ineptitude, design, or a simple lack of will, Boris Johnson’s Conservative government has failed to “take back control” of immigration in the nine months following the UK’s official departure from the European Union.
With another 660 illegal migrants landing on British shores on Sunday, the total number for the year was taken to approximately 17,063 known illegals, according to calculations made by the BBC. The latest milestone means that more than twice as many illegals landed so far this year than all of last year’s total of 8,410, which was then an annual record now far surpassed.
In September, alone, an estimated 4,638 migrants crossed the English Channel from France in 160 small rubber boats, more than twice the total number of migrant crossings seen in the whole year of 2019.
Dan O’Mahoney, Clandestine Channel Threat Commander, said: “The government is determined to tackle the unacceptable rise in dangerous Channel crossings using every tool at our disposal, at every stage in the journey.”
“The Channel is one of the most dangerous and busiest shipping lanes in the world. Many migrants come from some of the poorest and most chaotic parts of the world, and many ask to claim asylum once they are picked up by the UK authorities.”
Let’s hope this continues forever.
If there’s a downside to filling a tiny island nation with infinite brown people, I’ve yet to hear it.
