They are not “migrants”, they are Mohammedan invaders. To call them ‘migrants’ is just as wrong and offensive as calling Mohammedan rapists of infidel British girls “Asians”.
How, pray tell, do you expect Europe to remain Europe when it is being overrun by Mohammedans and black African savages?
P&O is demanding urgent action by the French authorities to improve security in the port of Calais and prevent a repeat of the break-in last night which saw hundreds of migrants trying to storm onto ferries bound for Britain.
The ferry company questioned whether more could have been done more to prevent the mass security breach, claiming it was an “extraordinary coincidence” that so many migrants were able to get past guards on the same day the mayor of Calais threatened to blockade the port unless Britain did more to help deal with the spiralling migrant population.
Ships in the port had to lock their doors, raise the ramps and even use fire hoses to prevent a group of about 100 migrants trying to force their way onto vessels on Wednesday afternoon.
The group forced a gate and climbed over fences, evading security staff, before trying to run up the main ramp onto the ships.
A second attempt to force another entry into the port failed, as 150 migrants gathered around the entrances to the dock were stopped by police.
The captain of the P&O ferry Spirit of Britain spotted a large group of migrants running towards the berths in Calais yesterday as he was about to dock.
Port control advised him not to moor the ship so he remained in the inner harbour.
The crew of the MyFerryLink Berlioz, which was berthed, used fire hoses to halt migrants who were running up the loading ramp towards the ship.
Police then moved in and rounded up the migrants before evicting them from the port while all the ships were checked for stowaways.
This came just hours after Calais mayor Natacha Bouchart threatened to shut down the French port unless Britain did more to help manage the growing number of migrants gathering around the town.

A spokesman for P&O which is the port of Calais’ biggest customer, said: “It is extraordinary that such a large number of people managed to get through security at the port on the very day the mayor of Calais was talking about staging a blockage.
“It could an extraordinary coincidence but there’s no doubt the mayor of Calais has succeeded, without a blockage, in getting this story very high on the UK news agenda.
“I think whatever that background the issue has been very clearly made in the UK to the public and the government that the people of Calais are unhappy with what is happening.
“It’s a sign of their exasperation.
“Over the year since the closing of Sangatte there’s always been a migrant population in Calais but this summer is has ballooned, we have never seen a population like this.”
He said the company had written to the French government and Calais Chamber of Commerce urging them to improve security measures around the port, which has seen its migrant population explode this summer.
“We have been putting pressure on the French authorities to ensure port security is maintained properly,” he said.
“We are of course concerned that it might happen again and we have seen some extraordinary events over the last few peak weekends with migrants running amok on the motorway outside the port when queues have formed prior to the UKBA controls.
“They have tried, often successfully, to gain access to freight vehicles and have also been targeting caravans and motorhomes. We have asked the French authorities to do more to prevent such interference.”
But the French authorities insist Britain must do more to help them control the burgeoning migrant population which has now reached about 1,300, according to police.
Speaking to reporters yesterday Ms Bouchart said she “could take the decision to block the port” after meeting French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve in Paris.
“It would be illegal, but today I want to make a strong gesture towards the British,” she said.
The mayor complained her city was being “taken hostage” by the migrants, mostly from East Africa, due to British immigration policy which meant it was “considered as an Eldorado”.
Ms Bouchart said British authorities could not keep demanding better security at Calais without paying more towards the 10 million euro (Â£8 million) annual cost.
Cazeneuve, who was in London last Friday, had called on the British to help finance security at the port, a ministerial source said.
The UK Border Force claims it is already working with the Calais authorities to improve security.
A Border Force spokesman said: “Security at the UK border is our priority, and we continue to strengthen it to stop those who have no right to enter the UK.
“We have already made improvements to security at Calais, working with the French authorities.
“We have, for instance, upgraded vehicle scanning equipment with the latest technology to detect people hiding in lorries and tankers and have increased the number of body detection dogs stationed at Calais.
“We will continue to bolster security, and the Home Secretary met the French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve last week to discuss this important work.
“The ramps to the ferries were immediately raised when a number of migrants entered the port today, and none of them were able to board.
“The incident was quickly brought under control and the French police apprehended all those involved. All freight vehicles inside the port at the time have been rescreened by Border Force.”
The P&O spokesman described the growing make-shift migrant camps around Calais as a “humanitarian crisis” and said it required collective action from all European countries.
“There is no Sangatte now, there are only charitable soup kitchens, there is no proper shelter for them, they are literally living under tarpaulin and plastic, the amount of rubbish is disgusting – it is an inhuman situation which needs to be dealt with on humanitarian grounds if nothing else,” he said.
“The Calais authorities cannot cope with the humanitarian crisis they are facing.
“It is almost impossible to walk around the port area without bumping into huge groups of these people.
He added: “We understand and feel the people of Calais’ pain and see the scale of the issue they are dealing with.
“There needs to be some over-arching political solution to this because it is not just an issue for Calais and Britain, it is a pan-European issue. It is about stemming the flow across Europe of people trying to get to the UK.”
Bouchart and Cazeneuve have agreed to open a day centre for immigrants in Calais and a night shelter for women and children.
Most of the migrants are from Eritrea or Somalia and are hoping to reach England rather than seek asylum in France.
People fleeing war-torn Syria are adding to the rising numbers.
A woman told of her shock when an illegal immigrant jumped out of her car boot on Thursday morning after she returned home from Spain having travelled through the Channel Tunnel.
Sue Taber spotted the young man hiding in her Fiat Panda when she opened her boot to let her two dogs out after parking outside her home in Shepherdswell, Kent.
The young man, aged 18 to 20, fled but was later arrested by police who handed him to the immigration authorities.
She said: “I can’t believe I was in there all that time and I managed to get through passport control and everything else with a stowaway on board.
“I’m still shaking. You just can’t believe it could happen to you. I’ve got a Fiat Panda for goodness sake, with two dogs in the back.”
