An inflatable problem solved
The government is considering using the military to do something about the influx of refugees crossing the Channel on their inflatables. The idea is being touted by the Tory chair of the Defence Select Committee, Tobias Ellwood MP. Pritti Patel is on board, unsurprisingly. But perhaps a different approach is called for. A policy based on the principle ‘you invade us, we’ll invade you.’ Many of the refugees are coming from countries we have ‘saved’ - Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya. Trouble and strife in former colonies (e.g. Uganda and now Hong Kong) were no barriers to migration to the UK (in both those cases under Tory governments). The policy could be called ‘Reap what you sow.’ It might help future British governments think twice before embarking on military adventures.
