    Everybody in EU will have even bigger incentive to give visas on condition immigrants cross EU into UK.

    Only way I can see this would work is if Britain gets so much poorer that immigrants would prefer to go back to war torn Syria
    Put them in Birmingham. Then they would prefer Syria.

    They might eat the Squirrel population though.

    Or open a mobile kebab shop so the ones with a bedsit above them become unprofitable.

    Actually combine the two = win + win

    Also once the tulip hits the fan the EU will be only too happy to bend the rules to save themselves.

    (alt-whatever. No idea what it means, but it sound like some lefty twat went for the spacebar and hit the wrong key.)

    Genuine refugees have no hope of raising the money to get on those deathtrap boats, unless they're doing something illegal along the way, which is possible, or they have to submit to some form of slavery in order to get on the deathtrap boats, which is equally possible, and if anything, more likely. But the fact remains, the migrants mostly arrive in Italy and Greece, the two countries least able to cope with them, and what are the EU doing? Not much. I can't really blame the Italians for threatening to give the migrants an incentive (in the form of travel documents) in exchange for them leaving the country and moving North. Just as long as those travel documents are not valid at Dover.
