Why are Iranians crossing the Channel in dinghies?

Post  fatbob5 on Mon Nov 26, 2018 9:50 pm

More than 100 migrants, claiming to be Iranian, have attempted the dangerous journey by small boat to the UK in the past three weeks. Why?


On 23 November, shortly before sunrise, eight migrants were found clinging to a dinghy in choppy waters off the coast of Kent.


They told their rescuers they had spent 12 hours at sea.


It was a similar story the day before, when seven more were found in a boat just off the Dover coast - the same number of people had been pulled from an inflatable boat just a few hours earlier. ...........

Thatcher was an enthusiast, Bob, but a Frenchman, Albert Mathieu, came up with the idea in 1802. A company was formed to start the project about 70 years later, but it went bust, and it was Harold Wilson who finally gave UK government approval in the 1970s.

He was a Labour PM, as I recall.

(And yes, I know it was put on hold for several years until the Thatcher era.)

that may have been because the country was broke again after suffering labour governments.
