This has been going on for a few years now, slowly escalating to the epic proportions we're seeing now. Why 'now' is the governments of the EU talking about it? It's probably because it's now in the media mainstream, so they have to be seen to be apparently concerned.
So what the hell is the solution? Is there a solution? There's a reported million plus on and in and around the northern shores of war-torn countries, ready to make the perilous journey to Southern Europe. This surely is a humanitarian disaster on epic scale ready to happen. Is this a problem that the effected countries should sort out, or is it a European problem. How the hell are we (Europe) going to accommodate these, what one can only assume, will eventually be asylum seekers?
Europe is turning into a shitpit of immigration.
Oh for the halcyon days of the suave French, amorous Italians, starry-eyed journeys through Europe on the orient Express wearing a smoking jacket a drinking Pimms. Red sports cars along the Amalfi coast. Kiss me quick hats and stuffed donkeys on the very first Spanish package holidays on the Med. It was all romantic and exciting (come on - you've all seen those glorious B&W 60's films) - Lederhosens, french wine, Italian food.
Now what, poverty, civil unrest, austerity, mass migration and more mass immigration. Shit, just fooking shit. The very fabric of a once sophisticated, civil, wonderful part of the world now feckin up and on a very rapid basis, because everyone wants to come here, and we're just sitting back and letting them. I want the old Europe back (minus that man in the 30/40's with a funny moustache).
When it's all too late,, prolly in 20-30 years time, I'm just sorry to say that I won't be around to say I fooking told you so. I'l be dead and buried, and thank fuuck for that. I pity people on here who have very small children - because what a divided, austere, and crime ridden shithole of a country this is going to be.
There, go on, fill yer boots. Call me what you want. I don't give a fuuck, I just used to give a fuuck about this country and Europe.
