VIDEO: Construction Begins On Britain’s ‘Great Wall Of Calais’ To Keep Illegals Out

This week the UK began construction on what has been dubbed the “great wall” near the porous border in Calais, France, to keep illegal migrants from gaining access to vehicles preparing to cross the English channel.

The British government is pouring around £2 million in the project to put up a 4 metre (13ft) high barrier along both sides of the main road into the northern French port.

Plans were revealed at the beginning of September and building is expected to be complete by the end of the year, the BBC reports.

The wall is designed to keep migrants from the nearby ‘Jungle’ migrant camp from attacking and stopping traffic as they attempt to board lorries and cars to make clandestine entries to the UK.

It will be made of smooth concrete to make it difficult to scale and will be extended by fences, many of which are already in place.

The population of the ‘Jungle’ camp has recently surged to more than 10,000 and the number of violent incidents has shot up as migrants become more desperate and audacious in their attempt to enter the UK.

Police have declared a part of Calais a “no go zone” after dark, and migrants have caused vehicles to crash, left logs on the road, thrown rocks off bridges, and set fire to undergrowth. Drivers have also been attacked, beaten with bats, stabbed, and even threatened with chainsaws.

Calais port chief executive Jean-Marc Puissesseau said earlier this month: “This wall is going to prevent migrants from getting onto the road every night”. He said they routinely put “tree trunks, branches, gas cylinders” in the road to stop the trucks.

“We can no longer continue to put up with these repeated assaults,” he said.

Announcing the project in September, the UK’s immigration minister Robert Goodwill said: “People are still getting through… We’ve done the fence, now we’re doing the wall.”

“We are going to start building this big, new wall as part of the £17 million package we are doing with the French,” he explained.

Following the announcement, left-wingers in Britain reacted in horror, with Labour and Green party Members of Parliament (MPs) comparing it to the policy proposals of American Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

“Trumpism has now landed in Britain,” wrote Caroline Lucas, MP and co-leader of Britain’s Green party. “When Donald Trump said he would build a wall between the United States and Mexico, most of us recoiled. How had politics in the ‘land of the free’ descended so low, so fast?” she asked.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd previously told MPs the wall was “not a new initiative”, but what mattered was making sure the French had the right amount of security to prevent “illegals” trying to get to the UK.

“We support the French with money to help them do that,” she said. “It is up to them how they decide to secure their borders in Calais and around it.”

  1. Please, don’t generalise that Britain complained about Trump’s proposal that there should be a wall built to keep migrants out of America…THE REAL BRITISH PEOPLE THROUGH IT WAS A GREAT IDEA! Real British people are on Trump’s and America’s side!


      • Then you know what to do don’t you?
        Depending on where you live, you need to give full support and your vote to those who advocate for the removal of Islam from the West and containing it where it came from.
        Vote for the likes of Trump, Le Pen, Weelders, Farage, Hanson, Abbott, and all such other political identities, their political parties and candidates, in Municipal, City, County, State and Federal elections.
        The rapidly approaching US Presidential election is the worlds best chance at weakening Islam at the moment, with a voracious Anti-Islamic Trump seemingly set to oust Islam-apologist and pet of Islamic supremist Obamohamsandwich, Hillary, who’s ass may well end up in prison should Trump pursue her treason.
        Dear Canadians, vote the slippery, hair gelled Muslim wannabe Trudeau out, as soon as you can – he is an embarrassment and will turn your nation into a third world welfare state and laughing stock, much like Sweden.
        And a war zone, much like Sweden.
