Where is Macron? No speeches from PM May at 10 Downing vowing to stamp out this hate? No marches for truck drivers? No flowers?
For months I have been reporting on the migrant siege at Calias. Muslim migrants mobs (mainly young men) brandishing weapons and trying to climb into trucks have made the gateway between France and Britain a war zone. They set up burning road blocks to slow down the trucks.
The drivers are on the front lines of the Muslim invasion. They have begged for help.
The chaos at Calais is the direct result of a failure by France to control its own borders. Traffic to and from the UK is now deadly. Trade, jobs and export is all put at risk — as are the lives of motorists and the good burghers of Calais.
Calais is migrant hell, and the authorities are powerless.
This was an accident waiting to happen. Truckers have for too long been running the gauntlet of migrant ambushes and roadblocks set up outside Calais on the route to the UK. Now a man is dead – killed just doing his job.
But we must all respect al-hijrah especially at Ramadan.
Calais van driver dead in migrant roadblock crash
BBC, June 20, 2017:
A driver was killed when a van crashed into lorries that had been forced to stop on a motorway near Calais by a makeshift barrier set up by migrants.
The van, registered in Poland, burst into flames. The driver’s identity is not yet known.
Nine Eritreans were found in one of the lorries and taken into police custody.
In 2016, the so-called Jungle migrant camp at Calais was closed, but hundreds of people have returned to the area in the hope of reaching the UK.
Roadblocks, often built from tyres or rocks, were regularly placed on the A16 motorway leading to the port of Calais before the camp was dismantled in October. Migrants aimed to slow lorries down as they approached the port in the hope of climbing on board.
Migrants ‘cleared from Jungle camp’
What next after the Jungle?
An Eritrean man was killed in an accident involving a British motorist in October. But no further incidents had been reported on the A16 until late last month.
The crash in the early hours of Tuesday was described as the first fatality involving a driver.
Two lorries were forced to stop when tree trunks were placed in the road near Guemps, 12km (8 miles) east of Calais, at around 03:45 local time (01:45 GMT), local media said.
The van was unable to brake in time and ran into the back of them. The driver died at the scene.
Police said the nine Eritreans were being questioned on suspicion of manslaughter.
Several hundred migrants are living in the Calais area in poor conditions. Some 7,000 had lived at the Jungle camp before it was dismantled.
