Kent roads in gridlock. Families missing their big summer holiday. There was even talk of sending in the army to defend our borders from ‘invading migrants’. So how did we get here – and what’s going on?
The media make it sound like a scene from a horror movie. The nameless Calais migrants storm into the tunnel under cover of night, wielding chainsaws, metal and sticks.
This “threat” to the nation seems clear in the papers. (One even put migrants and Hitler in the same headline.) Send in armies, Gurkhas, even Jason Stratham, if necessary – whatever it takes to defend our land.
But do you have five minutes to read this, before you barricade the doors?
It’s time to get the story straight.
