A LONDON cabbie has ripped into the failure to stop small boats – asking a top Tory if Rishi Sunak was “taking the mickey out of us”.

Grant Davies took former immigration minister Robert Jenrick to task over the Channel crisis.

He said that if France could escort dinghies leaving Calais into British waters then our Navy should be allowed to escort them straight back.

Grant – who is the Transport Secretary in the Sun’s Cabinet of readers – said illegal immigration was the main gripe of passengers in the back of his taxi.

Appearing on our Never Mind The Ballots show, he said: “I’m not convinced with anything the Conservatives are doing – it’s quite depressing.”

The French dont want them in Calais and areas, as its overcrowded as it is, so they want to send them over to us. so why pay them to stop the boats ???

Give them another alternative vote reform. Reform are the only party who will actually this problem and get us out of the ECHR and deliver us Brexit. We are not safe in our own country.

Don't trust him, one bit. Like I've been saying all along. It's set just for Tories or Labour. He said right at the end. The only other alternative would be Labour. Why Labour, why didn't he say "reform party"? The Tories and Labour are selling their own people out to save their own jobs. One vicious circle getting away with it. I've been around now for over 40 years I clocked their nasty pattern.

Stop paying the french, sack the Conservative party it's got to stop, if Labour does the same then we vote in a party that will do the job.

Is " none confrontationism" taught in schools? Mr. PM Sunak, when a British defence or even private boat sees a distressed vessel at sea in other countries waters, why cannot it rescue the passengers/crew and return them to that countries shore? If it can why do the UK not allow it to do so?
