"the weaker countries can't police their own borders"

And how do you police them, when the border is the sea and there's no other land to push them back hoping they become someone else's problem?

Barbed wire and machine guns, maybe firing against women and children? A Trumpian "Wall" all along the shores? Submarines torpedoing the boats? The royal Navy is free to do it...

Italy and Greece were left alone to sustain an exodus there are no easy solutions for - and both have very little leverage in the source countries...

"Migration needs to be tackled at source, before people leave their homes"

And most of them are from ex-British colonies, pieces of the "Empire".... good job, Britons... we are collecting the pieces of your disaster.

Completed by the Sarkozy&Cameron ill-planned Libya campaign... we should add that to the Brexit fees...
