Have your say

My thanks go out once again to Mike Larcey (Letters, February 9).

If it wasn’t for him I don’t suppose I would ever write to the Lynn News. This time he’s taken offence that the migrants in Calais have been referred to as a “bunch” by Mr Cameron. Let’s just take a look at the Calais migrants. Where are their parents, their wives, their sisters and their sons and daughters? Nowhere to be seen.

Have you ever seen all the young, strong, fit lads in their 20s and 30s running to jump on Blighty-bound lorries? I would suggest that the vast majority of them are economic migrants. Ever heard any of them being interviewed on TV? They all claim to be doctors, lawyers or scientists, I really can’t believe that at all.

Mike berates the media for depicting them as benefit seekers. Let’s just imagine, that the day should dawn when his hero Jeremy Corbyn actually comes to power and lets them all in, what then? He’d have to provide housing obviously, and healthcare and all the other things that we take for granted. What can that possibly be if not benefits?

Mike is correct in one thing, though, our culture is foreign to them. Or to put it another way their culture is foreign to ours. Just ask the women of Cologne and various Scandinavian cities what they think to migrant culture? How many hundreds of reports of sexual assault by migrants were there over the Christmas and New Year period Mike?

Mr M J Sayers, South Wootton
