LETTER TO THE EDITOR
AS ILLEGAL immigration would seem to be an insurmountable problem, using present methods that is, maybe it’s time to think out of the box?
Well, here’s a thought. Why not commandeer some uninhabited island, if there be one, preferably in the area around the southern coast of England to be used as a sorting out point where it could be established just who is eligible to come here. A kind of Ellis Island, such as America had back in the day to process immigrants?
This island would have to be secure but fitted out humanely of course.
I for one am sick to death of seeing fit young men landing here from points east who claim that they are escaping wars in their own country.
Am I alone in thinking that they should not be running away, but instead be prepared to remain and help sort out problems there?
Example: the young of Ukraine!
