UK calls for joint patrols with France after 27 people drown in English Channel – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

The UK government has called on France to allow British security staff to conduct joint patrols on French beaches.

It follows the deaths of 27 people in the English Channel when their inflatable boat sunk as they tried to make the crossing to the UK.

Those who drowned included 17 men, seven women – one of whom was pregnant – and three children.

Five people have been arrested in connection with the deaths.

Marcon your not holding the border and this more Marcon fault than British governments fault as they show no signs of stopping this happening

Pretty sure the French were caught leading them over to British waters in the summer and the BBC didn't report anything then. So don't expect anything

The Press is hyping this more than when the Titanic sank.
It’s all about stoking tensions with France.
But ultimately we never had this problem until the populist pig took over Downing St.

Funny how the BBC have suddenly started to pay much more attention to this story now that those poor souls have drowned and sadly died! This has been going on for well over a year & the BBC had mostly ignored it!

I really wouldn't put it past the jesuit/Zionist/freemason controlled goverment to use their puppets, the mainstream media to stage events such as mass border crossing and drownings as a distraction and a divise ploy given the current scam of covid that is being played out right before our eyes, you really must question everything, that being said if the story of the migrants drownings is true, then R.I.P to those involved and condolences to the families.

No doubt the 23th signal regiment and 77th brigade trolls will be trying to stir up hate and division in the comment section again. Please don't take the bait. Keep your eyes open and question everything.


On the very same morning of the London 7/7 bombings, a simulation of an attack on the exact same stations was carried out by a crisis management company called Visor Consultants which was managed by a man named Peter Powers, this was also announced on itv and BBC news.

Very sad

Sasha November 26, 2021 - 6:08 AM

Why they are trying to get to the UK?

Alan Parker November 26, 2021 - 6:08 AM

worth noting that france (500K) takes far more refugees than the uk (133K) in 2020 and germany tops it all with over 1.2M and less than 3% of people in europe come to the uk. those who do attempt the crossing are likely to speak english rather than french or have family members already in britain. others may come from countries with historical ties to britain
