All at sea on migrants


THE Mail hopes the Government’s new multi-million-pound handout to France will tackle the Channel migrants.

Paying for more French beach patrols, drones, buggies and surveillan­ce equipment should help smash more traffickin­g gangs. But previous hefty payments to President Macron haven’t stopped record numbers arriving on our shores in small boats.

As former home secretary Priti Patel says, the only way to end this crisis is if France takes back every illegal migrant, destroying the people smugglers’ business model.

The Prime Minister must convince Mr Macron that is the moral course to take. He can’t just throw good money after bad.
