    Outraged MEPs in the euro parliament seem to be focussing their opposition on the possibility of Austria building a fence around the Brenner pass entry point (from Italy) in anticipation of this summer's arrivals from Libya.

    Countries such as Greece and Italy don't care about the numbers of new arrivals as the illegal immigrants only want to pass through Italy and Greece. The fact that the Italians and Greeks object to razor wire fences being erected by the Macedonia or Austria government proves this.

    'Unstopable tide of humanity' , now ebbing.
    Empty beaches in Lesbos - BBC News

    5000 people per day had been risking their lives to land on Lesbos. On a recent day, that number was zero. On another day it was 4. The actions of the Turkish authorities have been effective; more effective than seemed possible one month ago. Will there be a 'water-bed' effect elsewhere?

    Without checking, the answer would be no. You are looking for efficiency and forward thinking - that's a bit much to expect - even our local dangerous criminals are not on a database (going on a recent murder case).

    The IW quango is another example - spending 80 million and producing a shambles. They did this, despite piggy-backing on an already established and efficient commercial water billing system presently being run by the local authorities.

    Amnesties don't work. Reagan gave an amnesty in the 80s and Spain in the early noughties. It just encouraged more and more to come. Both Spain and the US now have record numbers of illegals.

    Thought Mc Mahon had a vested interest ,should have known really.

    Busy boy. Nice little earner in his twilight years.
