    So more refugees in the English Channel and a politician comes on the radio and says Britain and France need to work together to end this crisis.

    How do you end a crisis where so many people are swarming to rich countries to escape dire poverty or violence? This is a global crisis.

    These politicians are so glib, we need more barriers, more police, more soldiers. How about less starving, desperate people.

    I admit to ignorance about this issue. Are there organizations in any of these nations they are leaving who are attempting to help them improve their homeland so they will be motivated to stay? I imagine these immigrants are fleeing war zones? I don't think you can do much about that.

    Do what Trump is doing in the US (not), UK can blame France and raise tariffs, or France can blame UK and raise tariffs, or both. What a concept!
