The French are taking their lead from Donald Trump and getting the UK Government (Taxpayer) to pay for the building of a wall in Calais to keep the migrants out of Britain.
The 13ft concrete wall will replace fencing that has failed to stop stowaways targeting Lorries.
Some of the motoring and Driver Associations believe this is not going to be effective and that the money would be better spent re-enforcing our border controls.
The Road Haulage Association said the wall was a ‘scandalous waste of taxpayers’ cash’ that would simply shift problems farther down the road.
Britain has agreed to stump up £2m to build a wall in Calais to protect British drivers from the migrants who have been attacking Lorries and cars on their way to the port.
This is part of a £17m package Britain has agreed with the French to ensure the safe passage of British Lorries and cars through Calais and to keep the surge of migrants from reaching our shores. It is known locally as ‘The Great Wall of Calais’
The Achilles heel in the Mexican wall proposed by Donald Trump is that it will be susceptible to tunnelling by well organised gangs……………….. need we say more.
Immigration minister Robert Goodwill told the Commons home affairs committee last night that the wall would halt the flow of migrants and keep drivers safe.
The Home Office said the measure would stop stowaways using projectiles in attempts to ‘disrupt, delay or even attack vehicles approaching the port’.
