The “migrants” in Europe aren’t satisfied with just overrunning the continent.  Oh, no.  They want the big prize: England.  So much do they want to invade England that they are willing to walk there.  Of, course, England being part of an Island, the migrants have to take the only dry way possible over there.  The Chunnel, or more specifically, the Eurostar’s Eurotunnel from Calais in France.

At just after midnight on October 3, a group of 110 YOUNG MIGRANT MEN stormed the barricades at the entrance to the famed underwater conduit itself and starting hoofing it toward the land of ravens and really bad food.  Some made it as far as 15 kilometers or about ten miles which is about a third of the way before being stopped by French authorities and turned back.

Officials in France say that the effort was clearly coordinated and had quite a bit of planning.  The big fear is that British leftist dissidents have infiltrated the refugee camps near Calais and are instigating this behavior.  The migrants may think they are headed for Nirvana, but what they really are doing is hacking off the people who have to wait for authorities to clear off the tracks and be sure no one is in the chunnel before allowing trains through.

[One passenger] said: ‘Nothing’s happening. I don’t think any of us have a clue what’s going on.

‘We were headed to Belgium, because I’m a bike racer. I was meant to be happening this weekend – not any more. We are literally just sitting here – our plans for today are wrecked.

‘We can’t really get off and walk – there’s no provisions. There’s toilets but not really enough’.

His train finally started moving at 11am – just over three hours after the scheduled departure.

Since the beginning of September, there have been multiple attempts by the “migrants” to make it to Great Britain via the Eurotunnel without taking the trains.  If one takes the train, one has to register after all.  French authorities have beefed up security at the tunnel entrance and those forces confronted the migrants doing the storming resulting in at least five people being taken to hospitals.  It is believed that these attempts are public relations, or propaganda, stunts to highlight awareness of the “plight” of the migrants.

In the wake of last night’s foiled attempt at crossing the English Channel without getting wet, a number of young men tried to hitch a ride, welcome or not, on trucks backed up on the superhighways due to the tunnel being closed.  If nothing else is obvious about all this, the people are determined.

Really, this is yet more evidence that the entire “migration” is more of an invasion.  The everyday Europeans see that even if their leadership does not.
