some bad and some good news. but not near enuff good news. subject: immigration. again.

I’ve said my piece on this subject more than once, and LyndonB has said it far better more than once.

Take a look.

THE BAD NEWS first.


Fury as mayor of Calais plans for ‘new Sangatte’: Camp will be ‘refuelling stop’ for migrants on way to UK, say MPs

Natacha Bouchart said allowing them to sleep rough was ‘unsustainable’

MPs say proposals to house 400 people will encourage more to travel to UK

Also furious at ‘welcome centre’ plans, where advice will be given to those wanting to reach Britain

France was yesterday accused of providing a ‘refuelling stop’ for illegal immigrants trying to get to Britain with plans for a new Sangatte-style refugee camp.

MPs said proposals for housing 400 people near Calais would act as a magnet, encouraging more desperate people to attempt the perilous journey to the UK.

They were also furious at plans to set up ‘welcome centres’ providing help and advice to people seeking to reach Britain’s shores. These may be used to help migrants make applications for asylum in Britain.

The row began after Calais mayor Natacha Bouchart announced plans for a state-funded camp, providing shelter, food and washing facilities, for thousands of migrants who pass through the port.

In words which have already raised the spectre of a new Sangatte, she said that allowing them all to sleep rough in her town was ‘unsustainable.’

Mayor Bouchart said: ‘Calais is today under an unbearable strain from the highest number of migrants we have ever known.

OK ... That’s the bad news and you can continue reading more at the link.

CONTINUE/CALAIS MIGRANTS

As said so damn often ... if the French would only shoot dead a few hundred, the rest might not follow.  Is a few hundred asking so much?
It isn’t like we’re talking about real live humans after all. They aren’t even pets for gosh sake.

So here’s some really good news for a change.

Oh, and no worry.  There isn’t any scary graphic content.
Only one photo and that one is not hard to view at all. 


Two hundred feared drowned after boat packed with migrants sinks less than a mile from Libyan coast as thousands try to cross to Europe

More than 100,000 Libyans are thought to have arrived in Italy since January

The small vessels - which was crammed with men, women and children - sank late on Friday near Qarabouli, 35 miles east of the capital Tripoli, according to the local coast guard.

It comes as Italy’s maritime search and rescue team are being called upon to retrieve hundreds of migrants who are trying to flee North Africa via the Mediterranean Sea on a daily basis.

A Libyan coastguard spokesman Abdellatif Mohammed Ibrahim said: ‘A few miles off the coast, we found the remains of a wooden boat which had some 200 migrants on board.

‘We managed to save 16 people and recovered 15 bodies, but the search continues for some 170 people who disappeared at sea.’

He added: ‘It seems that among them are Somalis and Eritreans in addition to other nationalities. One of the fatalities was an 18-month-old child.’

Around 3,500 migrants and found 19 corpses have been discovered since Friday during a spate of attempted journeys by traffickers trying to take advantage of calmer summer seas.

The Italian ship Sirio recovered 18 corpses and 73 survivors from a raft, after a frigate picked up one corpse along with 1372 survivors on Friday night.

The Mare Nostrum search and rescue mission began after a shipwreck near Italy’s coast killed 366 people last October.

The mission costs around 9 million euros (£7.5 million) a month and has sparked fierce debate in Italy, which slipped back into recession in the second quarter after years of stagnation.

A breakdown of order in Libya since the toppling of Colonel Gaddafi has been exploited by human traffickers, pushing the number of arrivals into Italy since January past 100,000.

At the frontier between Europe and Africa, Italy has long attracted seaborne migrants, but the number of arrivals this year is already above a previous record of just over 60,000 for all of 2011, when the Arab Spring uprisings fuelled migration.

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has called on the European Union to take responsibility for rescuing migrants by investing in border control agency Frontex, and on the United Nations to intervene in Libya to manage the flows of refugees.

  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
