Border chaos; VOICE OF THE SUNDAY PEOPLE.

DESTROYING a migrant camp does not stop migrants. Burning the second Sangatte won't stop a third slum forming, probably within weeks.

This is not an issue about keeping 'others' out of Britain - the camps are hotbeds of crime, hunger and suffering.

The Middle East is in turmoil and people want out. Most of Europe does not care that thousands risk their lives to cross the Mediterranean, because they don't stay in the south. They come north, to Britain, where life is better.

But we cannot take them all.

It is no good for the government to talk tough about our borders when those of our neighbours leak like sieves.

Immigration is a European problem - common sense says it's time its borders were enforced.
