As shown in Stephen Bush’s post of August 12th (Chaos at Calais) the combined population of the principal immigrant-sending countries in the above list of regions is now virtually six times the combined population of the principal immigrant-receiving countries, double the figure 50 years ago. Virtually all the would-be immigrants target the North European nations and their overseas descendant countries – what Bush describes as GSCs (Germanic speaking countries) and ABCANZ (America, Britain itself, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, sometimes collectively referred to as the Anglophone world). To underline the narrow focus of the immigrants’ target countries, it was announced, also this week, that the number of those landing on to the Greek islands from Turkey, without permits of any kind, reached 100,000 in July. Interviews broadcast on British and other countries’ TV networks made it unambiguously clear that their purpose was to reach the GS countries, especially Germany, and Britain, the latter being for some a stepping stone to the rest of ABCANZ. Germany has now forecast that the number of asylum seekers and illegal immigrants generally entering Germany is likely to reach the colossal total of 800,000 in the current calendar year.
Trains packed with non-fare paying passengers, overwhelmingly Muslim, mainly males, were shown trundling north from Greece through Macedonia into Serbia.
