Tragic. So unnecessary.

Marksf 24-11-2021 05:55 PM

Awful.

Malarkey 24-11-2021 06:00 PM

Jesus.

RIP all :(

Tragic but also inevitable but most of all very avoidable. Our Government along with the French have blood on their hands.

How so? People in France attempt to enter the UK illegally and die doing so, how is that our fault?

If our govt and the french worked together as opposed to spending the vast amount of time politically posturing we may have been able to put processes in place to at the least reduce people smuggling.

RIP

We know these dangerous attempts to cross the Channel occur almost daily. Home Office even provides the migrants with smartphones for application purposes before they've arrived. We should by now be providing them safe travel.

The UK government is as complicit as the French government.

All of this. But especially the RIP.

How terrible.

What I don't understand is how many boat shops are there in Calais.
They must be making a fortune - why do the governments not clamp down of these people ?

Also, what happens to all the boats the UK Border Forces collect?

You would hope that an incident like this will get the U.K. and French governments to do something to resolve the situation.

You hope……..

Wave machines?

Over 30 people now known to have died.

“My thoughts are with the families of all of those who have tragically lost their lives in French waters today.“

What is the relevance of whose waters these desperate refugees drowned in?

Our Home Secretary thinks it’s important.

PeterH 24-11-2021 06:53 PM

Will it help Boris?

Bombing their homelands back into the stone ages doesn’t help with the numbers of those seeking a better life from the rubble of Kandahar.

And then as others have said, we spend taxpayer money on photo shoots for the Daily Mail rather than workable solutions to suit everybody (well, grown-ups at least).

Sadly you know this terrible human being was pulling that awful smirk when she said this. Whoever votes for her and her ilk also have blood on their hands.

Terribly sad. I thought Angela Raynor's words were right though.

“Human beings. Men, women, children. Mothers, fathers, daughters, sons. They loved and were loved. In other words they were just like us. An unconscionable tragedy.”

I don't think this is a thread to get into a political slanging match but unfortunately this whole situation has a lot to do with politics, global politics.

Wolfnipplechips 24-11-2021 09:34 PM

It shouldn’t be political. It should simply be about humanity.

I deliberately started the thread outside the politics forum. This is a matter for us all whatever our political beliefs. Humanity and human lives are at stake.

Smithers-Jones 24-11-2021 09:48 PM

Well said by rayner but would be good to hear her leader speak like that....or any leader.

Not attempting to enter the UK illegally. Just trying to reach what they believe to be a fair country where they can apply for asylum/humanitarian protection to live peacefully. And dying attempting to do so. It's wrong. RIP.
