I sent the copy to my MP, WHO REPLIED THIS MORNING ;

Dear Mr Robertson,

Thank you for your email, I certainly remember discussing bits with you during the General Election
What an appalling thing to happen to your family. I am grateful to you for providing me with this level of detail.

In my view, you have done exactly the right thing in submitting a formal complaint to the ferry company and the town council. I would certainly be interested to have sight of any reply.

I would also like the Home Office to be aware of your experience. I have therefore passed a copy of your email to the Minister and have asked him to come back to me with an official response.

I will revert back to you once I have received a reply.

I hope this helps.

Yours sincerely

George

Well your MP seems to have taken your letter seriously and acted upon it.

Well done to you and him.

One of the greatest reasons for tackling the lawless actions of the illegal migrants

Is the harm they are doing to the genuine refugees seeking asylum

Those who are in real and desperate need of asylum

Somehow the law must take control over the lawless

Although it seems to me that it's got to a state beyond that

It's mob rule now and without mob control measures it can only get much worse

Just managed to get internet 1st time since going away, over 3 weeks ago.

When we left calais we headed toward oye and as we took the tuning off the motorway the truck in front braked heavily.My wife said that a couple of guys were on the truck banging on the cab roof. It was a polish truck and they seemed a bit pissdoff that he was going the wrong way.

Might I suggest that every time we get an email advert from one of the ferry companies handling a Dover/Calais route that we respond telling them that no way would we undertake a Calais to Dover crossing as it is too dangerous and too intimidating therefore we are looking at other routes for 2016 and to please remove me from your email list.
Money talks, all the ferry companies would be a bit put out and even the Mayor of Calais would be upset, not to mention the immigrants!!!
What do you think?

I am surprised anybody is still using Calais - Dunkirk for us everytime, even before the Calais problems - much easier all round.
