Britain is a land of milk and honey. The streets of London are paved with gold. The rich in British society always have the welfare of those less fortunate in the forefront of their minds so it’s always good to see the hand of charity being extended!
So much so that the rich people living opposite Buckingham Palace have provided sleeping accommodation to these poor unfortunates. Well, outside sleeping accommodation anyway. In the fresh and healthy traffic fumes of London no less. Well done, you rich chaps. Jolly good show.
Every night in Grosvenor Place where properties costs millions, migrants are bedding down for the night in the entrance porticos for a good night’s kip and then packing up to go seek their fortunes when the occupiers – mainly international companies – arrive for work.
Thanks to our EU membership, it’s a familiar sight in London these days. Every night dozens of men and women, believed to be mainly Romanian and Bulgarian nationals allowed to come here quite legally under the Fourth Reich rules can be seen camped out on grass at the centre of Marble Arch. And they’ve worked out that bugger all can be done about. A spokesperson for Westminster City Council said: “As this is private land, the council has no power to move people on but we will work with the leaseholders to support and advise them on a suitable resolution.”
And the police can’t shift them for the same reason. It’s a civil matter and the vagrancy laws can’t be invoked either because that only applies to public places. These are private.
I’ve got a couple of suggestions though. For one, blow their photographs up to billboard size and put them all around the port of Calais. That might discourage a few of the buggers trying to get across the channel.
And the other suggestion?
Well, have you never heard of a hosepipe…?
