I'm not trying to tell my Granny how to suck eggs but the answer is fairly straightforward, we welcome them with open arms & put them up in 4 Star Hotels, House & feed them - nowt wrong with that you might say but we have so many homeless of our own who can't get accommodation & who can't feed themselves - a situation which is only going to get worse due to this Pandemic when families get evicted that have had rent & mortgage Holidays & then this will be further exacerbated when all the redundancies caused by Covid hit home & people can't pay their Rent or Mortgage. That's one consequence of this Government 'Policy' & not forgetting the Terrorist threat as well. We need to look after our own first & foremost!
What advice do I have for the Government? Me Ged?
First of all make it less inviting for them to come here, forget about 4 Star Hotels for starters.
Let's take each of your points in sequence:
'Sending them back is being frustrated by our law. Remember the courts and government are separate.They are immediately criticised on the Grounds of Human Rights by the UN and other factions if they look like being tough.
We cant sink them'.
Unprecedented times require unprecedented action - change the law / laws to counter this serious danger to our Country - by emergency legislation.
'The French are turning a blind eye even helping them'.
Impose Sanctions on the French if they don't tow the line.
'If we build camps theyll be called concentration camps by the opposition'.
The opposition will criticise the Government come what may.
So there you have it Mac, I accept that what I've said above is not as simplistic & cut & dried as I've written but my point is that the government has to be resolute & show a willingness to find a solution to this grave crisis we are now facing a willingness they haven't shown to date.
