    Some lay in the Telegraph.

    You are absolutely right. Nothing to see there.

    Thing is I don't see the former red wall voters going back to Labour so I guess the inability to clampdown on the issue means we will have to welcome the far right into our political conversation because that is where people will go.

    Maybe we can ferry economic migrants away from the bright lights of the South East and politicians and media soundbites and put them somewhere more fitting e.g. the abandoned wastelands of Wales or the far North; ask them to set up camp there and help to recharge those economies with cheap labour?

    I’m just pleased we’ve got control of our borders back.

    I think the main issue is actually a sense of fair play. I think compassion to welcome those in need is large. But there's intolerance for those who have cheated the system (in the sense of economic migrants pushing themselves ahead of those genuinely fleeing war and persecution). Particularly those who have travelled through at least 4-5 perfectly safe countries first, that's just tinkle taking.

    I think most people would happily see us take double the overall amount of people if they were brought directly out of UN camps around the world, in exchange for turning away every single one arriving by boat.

    Its amazing how many people don’t realise that the PM is the face and doesn’t actually make any of the decisions.

    Who is the Peter Mandelson, Alastair Campbell or Andrew Adonis? I don't see an obvious puppet master this time. More a driverless car

    That is exactly it word for word mate.

    Don't know anyone who is against people fleeing wars being allowed in.

    The first thing was to get out of the EU then get rid of civil service.

    Can only see the culture war getting worse.

    That must be made up of all kinds of human rights violations.

    I suspect most would rather be returned to the war torn wastelands from which they've escaped than spend time in Wales or the North.

    That’s in need of a major software patch

    They are absolutely in the pockets of big business. But that's a many-headed interest group, not an all powerful puppet master.

    Surely you can understand why they are fleeing the EU countries too?

    I know you're trying to be funny but it is obviously purely about money.

    I mean everyone knows we are a horrible racist country. Worst in Europe if not the world.

    A country wanting self determination and governance is so obviously a bad thing. I personally have no issues with Europe, Italy is my favourite country to visit.

    But if you can not see the issues with uncontrolled migration then I think you will have some large disappointments coming your way. Brexit can be linked back to the idiot Cameron not giving us a referendum on the Lisbon treaty. Prime Minister Farage(coalition) will be linked back to this.

    It sounds worse than that. 27 bodies have been recovered but it is being said that there were possibly 50 people on the boat.

    It is a tragedy that has been in the making for a good while.
    Hopefully the British and the French can put the politics and point scoring to one side and find a solution. I have no idea what that would be, but a tragedy of this enormity must be enough to do something.

    The Alan Kurdi case a few years ago caused quite a big rethink in the Mediterranean, so hopefully
