Patel “read the riot act” to Channel commander over migrant numbers

The Home Secretary Priti Patel has reportedly hauled clandestine Channel threat commander Dan O’Mahoney in for a dressing down over outrageous migrant crossing numbers, according to reports in the Times.

“She read the riot act to Commander Dan and the team and told them these numbers cannot be repeated” said a source. “They must come down and come down quickly.”

It follows months of mounting frustration from politicians about the lack of action from executive officers over the growing crisis, with this website reporting last month how the Prime Minister Boris Johnson had allegedly said in a meeting: “What the f*** is the Home Office doing? When is she [Patel] going to sort this out?”

Members of the public have been shocked by near daily instances of boatloads of illegal economic migrants being actively ferried into Britain by our own country’s so-called Border Force, with the migrants often being shadowed into British waters by French naval vessels.

This website highlighted yesterday a heated exchange between Brexit icon Nigel Farage and French MP for Calais Pierre-Henri Dumont, covering the actions of the French navy and the £54m British taxpayer bung to the French authorities that was announced in recent days.

“Clearly your navy actually is going to continue, say ‘thank you very much for the £54m’, is going to continue to escort vessels into British waters. What if we just tow the boats back to Calais – how would you feel about that?” fumed Farage.

The Times has now also estimated that a whopping 22,000 migrants could land in Britain by the end of the year – similar to forecasts made by this website repeatedly throughout the year as we’ve tracked surging migrant numbers.

Back in March, four months before the Times made their forecast, this website pegged the expected number at 22,036 for 2021 – although recent data has convinced Foxhole analysts that the number could in fact now be heading towards north of 23,000.
