David Miliband impotent as migrant flood continues

Out of government and a refugee from his own party, David Miliband is utterly impotent to act as he views the wreckage of Europe's people movement policy from his transatlantic day job with some well-paying lobby group. Yet he feels obliged to add his voice to the discordant chorus of advice now directed at Europe's political bosses from a plethora of idiots, including the UN General Secretary. 

I've just returned from a quick trip via Ljubljana and into Austria; on Thursday the previously deserted and part-dismantled border buildings with Slovenia on the Karawanken tunnel road were manned and the road blocked northwards with police vehicles. By Saturday the Austrian army had taken over, and my driver reported long tailbacks as every vehicle capable of being used by people smugglers was searched. What the cameras don't see in their focus on the tsunami of fighting-fit young men walking from Greece to Germany en masse is an equal number being smuggled by poor and willing Balkans folk in vans and commercial vehicles.  

On the trip back we avoided the tunnel in favour of the twisty, steep and narrow road of the high Wurzenpass, where a single NCO with holstered Glock on his hip waved through the bikers and locals who normally use this toll-free route, with his chums keeping comfortable in the UV nearby.

David Miliband is part of the political class that helped create this situation. Expecting him to do anything practical to resolve it is fanciful. Expecting him to do anything practical to resolve it which is in the interest of European citizens is pointless.

The only thing he's ever done which has benefitted this country is lose the election for the Labour leadership, in favour of his brother, which has led to the current situation with Labour unelectable and hopefully heading for the dustbin of history.

The BBC are pissing me off with their relentless propaganda.

The Polls are quite clear on this. The majority of British people do not want Syrians, Iraqis, Afghanis, Pakistani's coming here completely uncontrolled.

Of course to the BBC we're all racist and must be replaced as soon as possible.

We should admit a fair share of Christian and Yazhidi refugees genuinely fleeing ISIS (or others') persecution, as well as people (probably Muslim) who have helped our armed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

However the bulk of the (Muslim) refugees or migrants should be shipped back to north Africa and the middle east. Let the Muslim countries, particularly Saudi Arabia put their money where their mouths are, and help their own.

It's time we stopped dancing to the whinges of the politically correct in this country, and the civil war in Islam.
