    no need to be violent just use common law.There are judges and policeman that agree with common law and are sympathetic to it as they know so much stated as law is really illegal. On mass people should pack the public box in courts and question his legality,demand to see his oath of office, if he cant produce it call the police to have him arrested. also do not vacate the public area,

    This article is about asylum seekers fleeing violence in their countries, to countries which are EQUAL, or BETTER OFF than theirs.

    By publishing this article about the completely unrelated, ILLEGAL immigration, in the backdrop of the UK just having voted against EUROPEAN immigrants, is the BBC engaging in creating xenophobia?

    "----- Just a matter of time before larger boats carrying many are crossing the channel. W t happens then?. If Labour are in Govt. it'll probably be free coaches to London"-

    Yes Tom. Labour did very well in the recent elections in London- compared with the rest of the country. In the past opinion polls said Afro-Carribean/Asian vote overwhelmingly for Labour.

    I think few would deny that there has been too much unrestricted immigration into this country over the last decade or so but leaving the EU is NOT THE ANSWER. After reading about half of the comments on this HYS I am embarrassed to be British. What a nasty country we are becoming. Very Very Sad.

    Many of the comments made here suggest that nothing is guaranteed to raise people’s blood pressure more than the subject of immigration. Invariably these discussions generate much more heat than light with assertion and anecdote always trumping evidence and analysis. While immigration undoubtedly has significant costs for the UK, it also brings significant benefits: we ignore either at our peril.

    With heavily populated areas in Eastern Ukraine cut off and now under artillery and air attack and a huge humanitarian disaster looming there, the EU are again mistaken thinking all the refugees will flee to Russia.

    Millions will also flee to Poland as well.and from there of course to easy touch UK. We live in hope there is just ONE BBC journalist with a conscience. A tall order probably.

    Facts for UKIP voters to vote on:
    - the English couldn't run their country properly so they imported some competent kings from Europe
    - tens of millions of English fled England in the last 500 years to dislodge local populations in America, Australia, Africa, etc. As far as I know, they were pretty illegal, didn't have regular visas issued by the welcoming countries

    But only the English can be racist.
