    Refugees swarm the English Channel Tunnel to try to immigrate to England.

    Apparently there is a huge camp of immigrants trying to get across the English Channel from France. To the point where the British government has considered sending troops. One man was actually arrested after walking the entire 35 mile length of the tunnel dodging trains in the dark. Over 600 people made 2000 attempts to rush the entrance in a single night according to the news I saw.

    Did you see the overcrowded boats in the Mediterranean, and the nearest land fall points in Greece, Italy, Spain having to deal with the influx ?
    It is an international issue that should be dealt with as such, not each country taking as many or as few as they see fit.

    Yes, you are paying for your History, for your Empire. What's past is past, time to call a halt.

    These folks have no intention, it seems, to make their own lives better, their own countries better. Isis, Boko Harum are winning because they are the only ones willing to take a stance & fight for their (horrendous) beliefs. Time for New Hampshire's motto: "Live Free or Die." That sounds harsh, I know, but the West can only be overrun if the immigrants wish to blend in, not start their own enclaves, which should never be allowed.

    Not denying that! Yours is older & more widespread, but we have nothing to be proud of, esp. Central America & United Fruit!

    So it is not a UK or German problem alone, migrants in transit through Greece entering Macedonia are running into trouble HERE

    I'd say it's much more recent history that that - a combination of illegal interference in the affairs of sovereign states generating a glut of displaced persons and a way too open benefits system creating a honeypot to attract them.

    Bulls-eye! Lack of ethics, common sense and forward-thinking has left us with a nasty, on-going legacy. We'll be a long time sorting this out, methinks!
