Refugees are a money spinner from the moment they leave their house. Someone earns off them from the off, from smugglers to businesses to charities to Governments.


I'm afraid that I cannot see either the government or any of us gaining from the illegals.
Charities, perhaps, but the government gains entirely from us, the taxpayers.

What if MPs had shares in hotels etc.
What if companies like Serco offered inducements to MPs for government contracts to transport or feed and house
these migrants?
Who is monitoring the storage of the rubber
boats that have allready reached our shores?
For all we know these boats could be being
deflated and boxed up, then exported back
to Europe for re-use ?
What about all the oil skins and blankets etc
that are issued to these suckers on arrival,
Who supplies them?
I don't trust any f- - Ker anymore!

For years now there's been a thriving black market for cheap labour, all countries want it but more so now, they're struggling to get away with it. This time its not  the unseen, they're visible & will be even more visible in the years to come.

Doing what exactly ?

No l wouldn't, but how would l know who
built it?
I suspect we will soon see the growth of
male nurses working in the old age care
industry though !

My son in law is a contracts manager for a company that looks after local authorities works nationwide.
ALL workers going onto any of their controlled contracts must register & show proof of who they are. Any companies workers who breach the rules & my son in laws company removes the whole of that companies workers off site for good. He takes no prisoners on that score, he's already done it half a dozen times.

Shortage of fruit pickers?? Can people actually survive on what's paid in that type of work or is it just beer money?
I remember my Father saying to me decades ago, "show me a poor farmer".

I watched a tv programme it that long ago  where the interviewer was asking young male fruit pickers if they liked the job etc. All of them said it was hard work but they earned enough to send back to their families  in the country from whence they came .
They all lived together in accommodation provided by the employer.

The government  now says it will take 5 more
years to solve the migrant crisis!
lf so then it will NEVER be resolved, we have
an upcoming election,we can expect any
gains made to be reversed by the new
government!
WTF, Donkeyman,  ☹️☹️

So...
Conservative government = five more years of this
Labour government = indefinite continuation of this
Liberal government = indefinite continuation of this
Reform/Reclaim government, possibly including some (true) Conservative MPs = ?


I wonder which option the people will choose.
