Who may these people and what they are running away from must be a really tough question. How and by whom these questions are to be answered is a costly one. Javid wonders why these people don`t seek asylum in the first country in which they land. I would have thought it is by now patently obvious why they choose the UK. Is it not that the UK is the friendliest and most accommodating legal haven to head for in the whole of the EU. But rush they must, the word is out, and that word is Brexit .
None of them.
They all have to transit other 'safe' countries to get here so we shouldn't get any.
