"What the f*** is Priti doing?" The anger of Boris as illegal migration explodes. I share that anger. Let's call in the military.

The proof that it is not only you and I who are frustrated/annoyed/bloody furious that 5,000 illegal migrants (almost exclusively economic) have come to our shores this year comes from The Times today showing we have an ally in Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
He is quoted as telling a minister;” What the f*** is the Home Office doing? When is she (Priti) going to sort this out.”
The migrant issue has moved smartly up the No.10 agenda for two reasons. The numbers making their way across the Channel have turned from a trickle into a flood and with good weather forecast for the next two weeks meaning calm waters the problem is likely to grow.

More than 1,700 have arrived this year and what angers Boris is that the papers are full of photos showing illegals being helped ashore from various points along the Kent coast rather than tributes to the successful vaccine rollout.
The second point of friction is that Kent County Council have announced it would stop taking unaccompanied child refugees as of Monday because its children’s services have run out of space having taken 242 this year with only 52 going to other local authorities.
Ms Patel, for whom I have the highest regard, is blaming the crisis on Border Force officials claiming they refuse to carry out orders on issues like such as seeking closer co-operation with the French, new tactics to detect and intercept boats and general duties in fighting people smuggling.
One minister is quoted in The Times as saying;” Border Force sit in meetings with the PM and Home Secretary nodding along and saying; ’Yes, of course we can do that, no problem. Consider it done.’ Two days later they are busy explaining to them both why it can’t be done.”

There have been suggestion that Patel has lost authority within the Home Office after the bullying scandal when she was said to have created fear by shouting, swearing and making unreasonable demands.
It seems to me the reverse is true. She is not being demanding enough. If the present Border Force command can’t do the job they should be replaced by people who can.
Bring in the Army. It’s the only hope.
