The chaos in Calais looks only as if it is going to get worse rather than better. But should we be surprised?
Imagine for a moment that you are one of the illegal migrants camped out in Calais looking to get into the UK. You know that you are very likely to make it – Kent’s Chief Constable warned this week that up to 70 per cent of migrants are making it through to the UK. That’s some 900 or so in just one month.
So, you know that you have a very good chance of making it to Britain if you manage to smuggle yourself onto British soil.
