Time to stand up to the French on Calais

Responding to the failure of the Government’s accord with the French Socialist administration on the crisis at Calais, as demonstrated by fresh incursions into the Channel tunnel and costly suspension to cross-Channel services, Janice Atkinson MEP said:

‘Let’s be clear – Kent’s economy has been closed today because of French socialists in power in Paris. They don’t care about their own economy’s health and they certainly don’t care about ours. If they did, they wouldn’t let illegal immigrants roam into the Channel Tunnel. All this talk from Downing Street about ‘working with the French’ needs to stop. It is time to stand up to the French. The answer is to arrest illegal migrants and remove them. We need fewer press conferences and more police action.’
