I have love and the best is Lupita. I deny myself her joy, her stroking my head as she waters our plants and my heart ❤.

This was patently obvious for months, years. The politicians of France and UK should be hauled before the courts and held to account.

This is hypocrite and digress. Shall politician concern about UK's safety and UK border's safety as well?

Ms Patel is a immigrant herself so she knows what these people are about

When they chucked Christians overboard to drown it didn’t get this kind of coverage….imagine my surprise.

Philip cook November 25, 2021 - 4:27 PM

They are in a safe place to start with, since when has France been a war torn country? Absolute B.S. I see the reporter brexit bashing again. 🇬🇧

Money was not payed by the uk so yet another lie from a tory

Terrible news : apparently a few of them survived.

A review of history. Che was right to revolt but Fidel Castro had no solutions.

Luis Lomeli November 25, 2021 - 4:41 PM

Fidel and Che were dismissed by politicians like uncle Sam Joe Biden.

Luis Lomeli November 25, 2021 - 4:42 PM

They turned to the Russians. Politicians aren't very smart.

Luis Lomeli November 25, 2021 - 4:45 PM

Che makes a mistake by trying to manage a bank. He made a mistake in not knowing that all his social programs were based on single commodity sugar. The USA dumped sugar into the market destroying Che's dream.

dean bryce November 25, 2021 - 4:53 PM

They chose to risk their lives

michael kendall November 25, 2021 - 5:00 PM

600 in one day, disgrace !!

No wonder people don’t feel safe in this country anymore

Jon o November 25, 2021 - 5:03 PM

The EU can shut up about Belarus, they are just as bad using migrants for political points against the UK, these people are in camps within the EU, none are documented/registered , the UK government should take the EU to the international courts.

J Bs TV November 25, 2021 - 5:05 PM

This is a clone of Prickstick Patel

Susie 73 November 25, 2021 - 5:09 PM

As sad as this and nobody wants to hear news like this they chose to risk their lives for our benefits. They were safe in France

Ramzan November 25, 2021 - 5:15 PM

ML41 November 25, 2021 - 5:21 PM

This lady has said many times about the channel situation,and no one in government took any notice of her,put her in Patel s position. Boris should get us out of ECHR now,
