Migrant crisis will tear apart the European Union — then it will tear apart the UK

IT will not be Brexit that eventually tears the European Union apart – it will be the migrant crisis.

Around 13,000 illegal immigrants arrived in Italy over the past week and it is not even big news, for this is the new normality.

And the issue divides the nations of Europe like nothing else.

The countries of southern Europe on the front line — Italy, Spain, Greece — are increasingly overwhelmed by the numbers of people arriving on their shores.

Angela Merkel’s solution — that the migrants she invited to live here should be shared out equally among the countries of Europe — has fallen on unresponsive ears.

For the nations of Eastern Europe — Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia — are totally, implacably and forever opposed to seeing their overwhelmingly Christian countries turned into multicultural paradises like France, Germany and the UK.

The Eastern Europeans are routinely derided as racists by the west. And yet who can blame them for not rushing to replicate societies where home-grown terrorism is now a part of everyday life?

Eastern Europe has been given a choice that was never extended to the people of Western Europe — do you really want to see your nation’s identity radically changed by newcomers with their own set of beliefs?

Eastern Europe has replied with one voice — no thanks.

There will be millions of decent, non-racist people in Western Europe who do not blame them at all.

The solution of the Mediterranean countries has been to wave the migrants onwards and let someone further north worry about the problem. But that no longer works because this week the Austrian army mobilised tanks along its border with Italy to control the tidal wave of humanity looking for a home.

No nation in Europe wants — or is able — to give a life to thousands of young, male refugees from deeply religious, profoundly patriarchal societies whose beliefs are frequently at odds with western freedoms. Yet still they come.

And we are told that they will be coming for generations.

Does Europe really wish to change out of all recognition?

It has seemed that way since Angela “Mutti” Merkel invited the Third World to come and stay in 2015.

Now charity vessels and the navies of Europe act as glorified mini cabs for any migrant found in a leaky boat a few miles off the coast of Africa.

Eighty-five thousand migrants have arrived in Italy from Libya this year.

Where will they live? What work will they do? What will they contribute to our societies?

Will their children — and their children’s children — be happy here?

Perhaps we should think about these things.

One Austrian bartender spoke for the entire continent of Europe when he said: “I just don’t understand where all these people are going to go.”

The one glimmer of hope is that it seems like this might possibly be the long hot summer when we finally start to admit some hard truths about the migrant crisis.

The United Nations now concedes that 70 per cent of the migrants coming to Europe are NOT refugees fleeing war but economic migrants.

In Italy an Italian senator called Lucio Malan says aid agencies and charities are running a “public transport” service that enriches people traffickers.

And even liberal philanthropist Bill Gates says that the EU must “make it more difficult for Africans to reach the continent via current routes”.

It is hard to imagine these thoughts being given voice even a year ago.

But Europe is fighting for its life now and there is finally real debate about how we prevent our beautiful countries from committing national suicide. Apart from in Britain.

Only in virtue-signalling Blighty is it still considered racist to admit that Europe cannot continue to give housing, education, medical care and benefits to anyone who fancies it in the Third World.

We can’t blame anyone who wants a better life for themselves but it should not be at the expense of our own people who built this country by fighting its wars and paying its taxes.

It is time to state our country is worth preserving, protecting and cherishing.

No country belongs to the world.

And if we truly believe that is a racist statement, then there is no hope for us.

Male ace throws in the towel

I WAS at the Centre Court this week when two successive matches ended early because the opponents of both Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic quit because of injury. The poor little lambs.

They then hobbled off to collect £35,000 in prize money.

Grown man snatches Jack Sock’s towel from young tennis fan at Wimbledon[/caption]

This was an insult to the fans. It made tennis look like a sport that is played by pampered, privileged, overpaid soft boys.

But it did not spoil the day because the women on show were so brilliant – World No1 Angelique Kerber v Irina Falconi, and Caroline Wozniacki v Tímea Babos, all of them showing fighting spirit that made most of the men look like wimps in white shorts.

And nothing could ever ruin my enjoyment of a day at Wimbledon. Not those eight players who retired with injury in the first round. Not the plague of flying ants. Not the heat.

Not the sunburned crowds full of Pimm’s, champagne and beer (Wimbledon is the booziest event on the planet).

The only thing that would really ruin a day at Wimbledon for me is having some hairy-armed jock throw his sweaty towel in my face.

There was much controversy when a young fan had American Jack Sock’s towel snatched from his hands by a fat middle-aged man in a Panama hat.

“If ur the bloke in the blue polo shirt and hat you should be ashamed,” tweeted Judy Murray.

Number 18 seed Sock has been in touch with the young Irish lad to give him tickets and a new towel.

A nice gesture, Jack.

Although if you had chucked your sweat-sodden old towel at me, I would have chucked it straight back at you.


IT is not caving in to Jeremy Corbyn to find more money for deserving nurses, teachers and firemen.

Austerity could be eased at a stroke if we culled the obscene waste of the foreign aid budget.

But where is the politician with the guts and vision to kill that sacred cow?


Too sexy for my Rat

Emily at Paris Fashion Week proves she may have a point[/caption]

EMILY Ratajkowski complains that she is discriminated against because of her looks.

“There’s this thing that happens to me – ‘Oh, she’s too sexy’. It’s like an anti-woman thing, that people don’t want to work with me because my boobs are too big.”

But Emily, 26, starred in Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines video, she had a leading role as the mistress of Ben Affleck’s character in Gone Girl, she has appeared on the cover of every magazine from British GQ to Vogue and she has a movie in the can called Cruise.

Not bad going for a 26-year-old.

Or did Emily imagine she would be Governor of the Bank of England by now?

Beeb must lose fee over bias

THE BBC is laughably biased against Brexit.

Of course it is – I doubt if one BBC staffer working at Broadcasting House voted Leave.

The BBC’s director of news rejects the claim of impartiality – but he would do, wouldn’t he?

Auntie reeks with contempt and disgust at the result of last year’s EU referendum. Positive economic news can no longer be reported by the BBC without the rider “despite Brexit”.

In the end, this painfully obvious bias against Brexit will be the reason the BBC loses the licence fee.

For why should 17.4million people give £147 a year to a corporation that believes we are all thick, ignorant racists?


  • THE Institute for Fiscal Studies warns that three in four students will never pay off their loans in full. So why bother having tuition fees at all? It’s not as though we will ever get the money back.

Sharon’s a tea-se

Sharon Stone looks stills looks amazing at 59

SHARON Stone, 59, poses in the summer haze and looks gloriously unchanged from her breakout role in Basic Instinct in 1992. Although some things do change.

In the movie, if you looked very carefully and scrunched up your eyes, you might have caught a brief glimpse of Sharon’s erogenous zone.

Whereas in this new picture, if you look very carefully and scrunch up your eyes, you can just about see Sharon’s “Don’t Mess With Texas” tea mug.


ITV2’s reality romp fest Love Island featured numerous young things romping but received more complaints about the contestant who was spotted smoking a cigarette.

In my smoking years you could puff away in planes and trains, cafes and pubs, offices and factories.

These days you can’t even have a fag on Love Island.

Ed Sheeran announces he has quit Twitter[/caption]

ED Sheeran has quit Twitter because of the constant stream of abuse he receives from trolls.

“One comment ruins your day,” sighs Sheeran.

“The head-f*** for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.”

But the adorable ginger nut is one of the most loved figures on the planet.

If the toxic atmosphere on Twitter is too much even for our beloved Ed, Twitter’s days are clearly numbered.
