Jayne Adye, director of Get Britain Out, is a regular critic of the Government on the issue, with well over 17,000 people having crossed so far this year – more than double last year’s total with almost three months to go. The UK has agreed to pay the money, which will cover the cost of measures aimed at preventing people from attempting hazardous crossings.  Ms Adye said: “It seems the French – aside from trying to effectively declare war on the UK over fishing vessels – may occasionally be starting to get tough on migrant Channel crossings.”

Last weekend officials had used rubber bullets to stop dinghies from getting into the water, and made a number of arrests, she explained.

She added: “This came after the Home Secretary, Priti Patel, confirmed the UK would not pay an agreed sum of £54million if the French did not deliver on their promises.

“Sometimes when you actually demand action before simply handing money over, something is done, but I won’t hold my breath.

“There is a lot more to be done before we can put these illegal crossings behind us, because hundreds more illegal migrants have reached our shores this week.”

Frost clashes with Coveney over Northern Ireland Protocol

Lord David Frost has clashed with Simon Coveney on Twitter after Ireland’s Foreign Minister levelled criticism at the UK over the Brexit Minister’s threat to suspend the Northern Ireland Protocol.

Responding to Lord Frost’s speech, Mr Coveney tweeted: “EU working seriously to resolve practical issues with implementation of Protocol – so UKG creates a new “red line” barrier to progress, that they know EU can’t move on…. are we surprised?”

Lord Frost replied: 1. I prefer not to do negotiations by twitter, but since @simoncoveney has begun the process…the issue of governance & the CJEU is not new. We set out our concerns three months ago in our 21 July Command Paper.

The problem is that too few people seem to have listened.

“2. We await proposals from @MarosSefcovic. We will look at them seriously & positively whatever they say. We will discuss them seriously and intensively.

“But there needs to be significant change to the current situation if there is to be a positive outcome.”

Macron sent packing as French back down to Patel’s £54million threat


Home Secretary Priti Patel’s threat to withhold the £54million Britain is scheduled to pay to France unless Emmanuel Macron’s government takes steps to curb the number of asylum seekers crossing the English Channel in flimsy dinghies appears to be bearing fruit, a pro-Brexit campaigner has said.

Jayne Adye, director of Get Britain Out, is a regular critic of the Government on the issue, with well over 17,000 people having crossed so far this year – more than double last year’s total with almost three months to go.
