The current government has zero interest in such a facility. They don’t want to take *any* immigrants or refugees at all and would rather they drown at sea. An alarming proportion of the public feel the same.Anything that can be done to stop rubber dinghy’s crossing the worlds busiest shipping lane has to be a good thing.
My plan to stop this would be create a place in France where people could go and apply for asylum, trouble is most of those crossing (fit young men) would not be successful so would still try and cross in rubber dinghy’s.
Maybe sending them to the middle of Africa is not such a stupid idea after all.
