Not mincing his words, as usual. Nigel says migrants trying to cross the Med should be returned to where they came from in order to deter migrants from attempting to make the same journey. Anti-PC, but right.
He says the UK should only accept “a few thousand” Christian refugees fleeing across the Mediterranean. We agree. This would be a reasonable humanitarian response.
It’s a view shared by Aussie PM Tony Abbott. Just “stop the boats”, he said. Australia sends naval gunboats to turn back asylum seekers and Abbott thinks the EU should “urgently” follow his lead.
