Isn't funny every EU country ignores the rules except the British.  Is it no wonder that Britain is seen as a soft touch in the EU.  The Spanish openly laugh and say "the only fools who obey the rules are the British."   Is it not time for Britain to say enough is enough and that this weak ineffectual Cameron showed some gumption instead of allowing the mayor in Calais to rant and rave and blaming Britain and Cameron for this mess in Calais.  She should be venting her anger at her own Government. I note that President Hollande and his equally incompetent  Government are conspicuously absent while all this mayhem is going on in Calais.
 > With France being a founding member of both the EU and the Schengen Agreement, why doesn't Cameron insist that it meets its responsibiltlies over the chaos in Calais instead of pussy footing around the French.
 > The Schengen Agreement calls for migrants to be processed at the first Schengen nation they arrive at.  In the vast majority of cases this is not France.  But it is up to the French Government who should have rounded  up the migrants and send them back to the respective country of entry to be processed.

 > The Channel Tunnel is the main link between Britain and the continent so France must ensure that it is not blocked either by actions of migrants or striking French.
 > But the real culprit is that useless cabal in Brussels who are so incompetent and ineffectual.  Only good at passing inconsequential rules and regulations that impacts negatively on the nation's.  They should send the joint navy of the member nations to intercept these boats from north Africa and send them straight back to Africa.  Once these traffickers and the migrants realise that it is pointless to try and enter Europe illegally it will stop. But by allowing them to land and permit them to stay sends the message the Europe is open door to the flotsam and jetsam of the world.
 > Here we see even Merkel uses the German army in a crisis so why don't the French.
