The government’s policy on the Calais migrant crisis can be summed up as ‘too little, too late’ in reaction to a problem that has continued for some time. Instead of blaming France and lorry drivers, perhaps it is time the government took greater responsibility for securing Britain’s borders. Sniffer dogs and a higher fence offer no more than a temporary sticking plaster. Fundamental reforms at the EU level are required urgently.
