Unless both France and Britain act, more horrific or appalling deaths in the Channel are grimly inevitable

Deadly dither

MAYBE now, with more than 30 migrants tragically dead in the Channel, politicians on both sides of it will finally act.

Maybe the French will end their infantile anti-Brexit games, order their police to get off their backsides and stop these treacherous dinghies setting sail.

That cops should sit idly by yesterday while terrified and freezing children were packed into potentially lethal boats wasn’t just shameful. It was inhumane.

Maybe our own Government will put in place an asylum system fit for purpose, not our chaotic, lax regime which acts as a magnet for illegal immigration.

The wicked people-smugglers of course bear ultimate responsibility. France must send an army of cops to lock them up, as the UK paid them £54million to do.

But these evil gangs only have a trade because of ineptitude and a lack of will on both sides. And because the EU’s open borders let migrants cross Europe and reach the French coast unhindered.

Hundreds a day now risk the crossing knowing that if they succeed they will be fed, housed and never removed.

Unless both sides act, more horrific and appalling deaths are grimly inevitable.

Brian’s bang on

THREE cheers for Queen’s Brian May for speaking out against the suffocating oppression generated by woke culture.

He is right to say scrapping gender-based Brit awards is rash. It may mean fewer prizes for women in the long run. But his attack on the tyranny of woke young people is bang on the money too.

“There is an atmosphere of fear everywhere,” says the guitar legend. “People are afraid to say how they really think.”

We agree. Campaigns against racism, homophobia and misogyny have driven welcome change. But young generations have been taught to believe only the ­liberal-left view is morally acceptable.

Social media then conditions them to detest and “cancel” the mildest dissent.
Being woke is not the harmless, positive force its proponents believe. It has become divisive, toxic and totalitarian.

We salute Brian’s courage in saying so.

Merry hell

BORIS Johnson must be alive to warnings of Christmas wine and spirits shortages.

Deliveries are in chaos because of the lack of HGV drivers. The Government must ensure firms can recruit more.

A few shortages Britain could live with.

Festive booze? Not so much.

On me editor

YOU may never listen to Radio 4’s highbrow Today show, but it’s worth it this Christmas.

Raheem Sterling has a guest editor’s spot — and the Boy from Brent should deliver something worthwhile . . .

Rather than Today’s usual diet of Islington dinner-party chatter.
