1/ Here’s how I feel about the language used by @BBCNews @SkyNews @LBC and all the other British media RE: #channeldeaths

I came here at the age of 5, my family were refugees escaping the Rwandan genocide against the Tutsi!
I’m currently a taxpaying contributing British citizen
2/Seeing the way the #ToryCorruption government uses connotations and terminology to whip up a frenzy from their xenophobic and racist voters (and Britons at large) makes me feel sick
This country was built by White people and PoC alike! And will forever be that way going forward
3/ PoC/ BAME such as @sajidjavid @SadiqKhan @pritipatel etc all came here as economic migrants seeking a better life - few years ago Sajid and Sadiq were competing about whose dad came with the least in their pockets!

Ultimately the HUMANS who died could have been their parents

Has accused French of not doing enough to stop illegal crossings to Britain. French have accused UK of being a magnet for illegal arrivals, they say:’lax about detaining people+making it too easy to find work’. Paris wants UK to issue ‘humanitarian visas’ to stop people risking/2
their lives to make illegal crossing. UK wants France to patrol its 150km long coastline better to stop the people smuggler trade. Illegal Channel crossings have increased since UK and France stepped up controls on Channel tunnel #channeldeaths /3
