How it works: you're non-EU, from somewhere like Ukraine or Moldova. You get into a schengen area state; buy that fake ID; fly to Ireland; head on by ferry for England.

Spanish police bust smuggling ring that brought 6,000 people into the UK from Ukraine


Quite a few of the 6,000 could have stayed here, working in hotels, escorting, refuse sorting or whatever. It's OK, they have fake IDs and travelling from another EU state. They would probably end up doing that sort of work in england, but hey, that's better than being conscripted into the ukrainian army and having to face Putin & co.

Our government say publicly they are against trafficking and "modern slavery", but can do nothing to stop it, or being pragmatic turn a blind eye. Unlike the Spanish.

What is your evidence that these practices occur in Ireland?

Not true. The article says the individuals were flown to Ireland, having passed through several other countries en route.

Presumably that is how they made their way to the UK, their ultimate destination.

If they have a polish passport why do they get a 'Schengen passport' and why go to the Uk through Ireland unless of course they the flights work out cheaper? Never heard of a Schengen passport before now, doubt very much that there is such a thing.

I'm saying we are a stepping-stone. This was 1 gang, and surely not the first or last.

Schengen is an area, not a passport but you would need a schengen country ID to prosper in england.

Nothing in our media yet on this one.

Reached the wilds of Arkansas meantimes... by way of, er, Vilnius...

Migrant-smuggling busts net over 100
VILNIUS, Lithuania — Spanish police say more than 100 people have been arrested in a pan-European operation against a criminal organization suspected of trying to smuggle some 6,000 Ukrainians into the United Kingdom and Ireland.

FM, if you'd read the article:


"Six thousand Ukrainians have been illegally smuggled into Britain via ferries from Ireland, Spanish police have revealed.
Spain's national police force announced yesterday that they had smashed the biggest people-smuggling ring transporting Ukrainians into the European Union and to their final destination of Britain.
The gang successfully introduced 6,000 Ukrainians into Britain by issuing the immigrants with false ID documents and flying them into Ireland before catching a ferry to reach UK soil, police allege.




Don't tell us there's nobody from that organisation somewhere on the ground here; someone has to collect them from the airport and arrange their ferry tickets.

Still not in any of the press here, so it must be a daily fact of life.

What about the 2 scams our economic migrant refugees are well noted for -

Go to The UK on a holiday Visa, pop on the ferry over to Ireland, cross the border on a well flagged unapproved road, tearing up your passport and ID on the way down and meet your buddies at the other end!
Fly over to Switzerland, who don't give a shyte about who you are as long as you won't be seeking 'asylum' there and fly onto Ireland and put your claim in!

I will tell you how.

No electronic swiping of passports in Dublin Airport.

And no verification questions checks for foreigners who are of fair complexion carrying Polish, Lithuanian or Czech passports.

There needs to be electronic checking at all points of entry.

How does it happen ?

Firstly there is NO ELECTRONIC SWIPE OF THE PASSPORT at the passport entry point.

Secondly if somebody is white and they carry a Polish passport no questions are asked. Even if the passport is a fraud.

Basically our system is useless at detecting frauds.

In fact it is so bad even the KGB/FSB were copying Irish passports for their agents. As were Mossad.
