At this moment some 80,000 Moroccan, Mauritanian, and sub-Saharan Africans are seeking to enter Europe illegally through Spain's territories of Ceuta and Melilla on the north African coast.
Many are being trafficked by criminal organizations, the Spanish Interior Minister said, qualifying the situation as "an absolute emergency".
These are not immigrants: they are invaders. They crash the gates in vehicles, or swarm over the fence at night, or swim round the headland to the beach. It is a crisis, Britain's crisis as much as Spain's. Nor is this a one-off incident: it is a continuous flow, from a continent teeming with millions.
Ceuta and Melilla are Britain's African frontier, thanks to the EU's free movement of people. Once inside, invaders are in the European Union, and gain the reward of asylum. As a reward for the further effort of making their way to the UK they can draw Britain's generous welfare. This is the EU's pernicious nation-breaking at work. It is no 'economic benefit', the usual dishonest bluff, nor is it an accident: it is part of the intended 'de-homogenising' of the component nations, asÂ UN spokesman Peter Sutherland expressed it.Â
Without the entitlement to asylum and to free movement there would be little incentive for invasion.Â The border would be defensible. With them there is guaranteed to be a permanent crisis, just as there is in Malta, on Italy's island of Lampedusa, and at the land borders of Greece and Bulgaria. No rocket science is needed. European asylum, welfare, and employment are the honeypot. There is a difficulty, though: the honeypot is bankrupt, and already dangerously crowded. As a commenter, 'pongidae rex', puts it:
No civilization in the history of the world has meekly submitted to its own invasion and cultural annihilation, yet that is exactly what we are witnessing today.
Not only are the beleaguered inhabitants of Britain having this invasion inflicted on them, they are paying for it: this is Alice in Wonderland on steroids. The sleeping Lion must wake, and spit out the politicians who are enabling this annihilation, the cultural Marxists destroying Britain for their New World Order.
