French fishermen achieve what the Borders Agency can't

Take comfort that over the past couple of days the flood of illegal migrants crossing the channel in the backs of trucks has slowed to a trickle. A few ragged-arsed French fishermen have achieved what the entire UK Borders Agency have failed to do.

I suggest we employ these diligent and tenacious men in Calais on a bounty system - €1,000 for every illegal they find within the port boundary. It's better money than they make fishing and at a fraction of the risk, cheaper than the subsidy they cost the European taxpayer and they'll actually be doing some good.

The heading of this post is wrong.

You say "French fishermen achieve what the Borders Agency can't".

What you mean to say is "French fishermen achieve what the Borders Agency won't".

A subtle but important difference.
