Illegal Channel Crossings Are A Huge Injustice

Illegal Channel crossings have spiralled upwards this year. More people crossed in September 2020 than during all of 2019.

The latter total is equivalent to paying salaries of over 30,000 police officers (see average police office salary here). The data was quietly issued as part of this […]

Some Are In Denial About The Massive Abuse Of Our Asylum System

Recently we pointed to an explosive claim that there has been a recent ‘increase in abuse’ of the asylum system. This triggered the open borders industry. Clearly we struck a nerve.
