I know a Chinese guy who illegally arrived on a small boat. He now owns a Chinese restaurant in sterling and claimed every possible benefit from the government while paying zero tax and driving around in multiple luxury four wheel drive cars and lives in a 500k house. Hes obviously done well for himself but has no issues taking money from our taxes, he's got no intention to pay back to the system. I am a Liberal person but it's simply wrong to allow this to happen.

I understand the risk if they live in a war torn country, But the parents that put their children at risk for no reason can't care for them, If the uk didn't give them benefits and free housing they wouldn't want to come over here, I feel sorry for the poor children

BBC Spends more than £35Million to force the over 75's to pay up for a license or face bailiffs.

For 10 years we have had a government promising to stop illegal immigration. The latest Home Secretary, Priti Patel. has been particularly vocal on the subject yet she does nothing. Australia solved a similar problem by saying any one illegaling try to enter would never be allowed to become a resident, they were even held in an island camp! Until we return people immediately to their starting point, in this case, France, we will continue to see these kind of said incidents.

How much more of this bilious diatribe must the UK be subjected to? Criminal gangs or posturing 'criminal' politicians that talk a good fight but do nothing. The same creatures that allow UK children to endure hunger but send money in the mega millions to other countries. Why do they come well as a simple experiment, lay out free birdseed daily and encourage pigeons – won't be long before you're inundated.

The Australian method. Ensure they know if they do this they will be turned around and taken right back with no future possibility of asylum or resettlement.

It’s our shitty laws and leadership encouraging them to make the crossing.

Didn't Boris Johnson and Priti Patel vow to make this route as they put it "unviable" at the start of this year? It's now October, why are we hearing the same lines from them that we heard at the start of this year and here we are people have now drowned. The French need to stop blaming the asylum system the UK has and start doing their part on tackling the criminal gangs as from what I see they're just allowing it to happen and it's not good enough! This is only going to continue into next year and I fear it's going to get very messy!

The parents are to blame. A better life in Britain? Is it so bad in France that it warrents risking not just your own lives, but those of you children crossing illegally? If we stop allowing these people to cross and stay instead of doing what we should and dropping them off back in France, then less children will die due to their parents being idiots.

No, Boris. No. You don't get to send your thoughts to the families of people drowning because you and Patel REFUSE to respect the 4th Geneva Convention that Britain SIGNED! If you don't want Refugees, you are required by law to withdraw your signature from this convention. If you don't intend to do that, you by law are required to allow Refugees to enter the UK and seek asylum.
MAKE UP YOUR MIND but how DARE you pretend it isn't YOUR policies and Patels causing these deaths. How DARE you pretend to care for the lost lives! YOU NEVER HAVE BEFORE!
