Did I say I had ?

However, I do have common sense, and I have looked at the numbers involved and the logistics and expense involved at removing 500,00 +  people.

Have you ?

The cost is peanuts compared to opening the floodgates to even more which is what will happen if the UK government doesn't act decisively now that they have a mandate to do so.  With Theresa May as pm however I cannot see it happening.

Oh FFS.  The illegal immigrants are already here, I'm not suggesting importing 500000 MORE illegals.

Precisely Alf.

I'm glad to hear it.  Just to be clear, you would allow the illegals who are also criminals to stay here too?

I am a realist.

If you try to expel half a million people who are actually currently living here, it will be chaos.  Virtually every case will end up with an appeal, the courts will be clogged up for years, and the expense will be simply immense.

Where will they be sent back to?  What if the regime is unsavoury and will persecute them?  Is there another country willing to accept a third country national? 

They are here, then they are our problem.  By definition working in the black economy.

The least worst solution is to legitimise them, allowing them to work in the normal economy, pay taxes etc.

Usual caveats about not encouraging yet more illegal immigration, expecting an amnesty so we need better security at points of entry. 

But in my view - while we are sorting out the piles of mess, add this one.

The government can bring in legislation to deal with illegals and their deportation.  That was the whole point in getting out of the EU.

The legislation relating to illegal immigration already exists.  It is independent of any EU legislation.

Would I?  You seem to think I would, what does it matter what I say?

There is another question - how many EU citizens are in the UK illegally?

I'll pass on that one and leave it to others to respond.

Can you remember the Scots guy who emigrated to Australia then got banged up for some child sex offence. He never took out Aussie citizenship.
When he was released the Aussies shot him back here so fast it made his head spin.... here you go Poms have the bludger back. Apart from it being somewhat ironic in the direction of transportation; way to go. Them Aussies could teach UK a thing or three. Like how to play the rules to your advantage, remember this:
