Britain to build a wall


Perhaps they should also construct a moat, you know, to go with the wall and all.

Oh wait, they already have a moat.

Oh wait, they plan to build a wall....in a French port city?

Hmm.

there aren't that many ports down this way that do the channel crossing, Calais ,Dunkirk, Boulogne and Dieppe (I'm sure there's another but cant think of the name) all on the French/Belgium side but not all of them come to dover some go to Ramsgate
as far as security goes, Calais/Dover is the best bet for them to cross the channel, there's more crossings per day between the 2 ports then any other port. Because its so busy customs can only check a few trucks out of every boat load which is around 150+ trucks plus cars, the turn around time for each boat is 45mins to an hour before its sailing again and there's normally 2 - 4 boats in the harbour at any time, during the summer holidays there can even be a small queue of boats outside the port so the customs guys are totally over stretched and need more man power


Just remembered, Ostend, that's the other French port

Great news.

Quite obviously a wall will keep people out and it's overdue. Now we are leaving the EU, we need to protect our borders and the channel tunnel is a weak point for illegal immigrants to exploit. Sounds like Theresa May agrees with Trump on this issue.

Quite apart from keeping out illegal immigrants, it might discourage them from gathering there and attacking innocent people as they drive past.

Calais is also where the entrance to the channel tunnel is. It's the only land crossing to the UK from France.
The wall will hopefully protect traffic heading to the tunnel.

This is the behaviour that is causing the problem.

No, the other ports don't have a channel tunnel that can be crossed by trucks.

One of the primary sources of illegal immigrants is people stowaway on board trucks crossing the channel.
