Opinion – Europe’s rudderless strategy on boat people – FT.com – John Gelmini

Let me try to address Dr Alf’s question about how to deal with the boat people humanely.

Ordinary people have to bear the brunt of this unwarranted immigration because if those same people were to descend en mass to David Cameron’s Witney Constituency, or to Chipping Norton where he and his friends like Jeremy Clarkson and Charlie Brooks socialize, there would be uproar followed by swift deportations.

The boat people who arrive should be treated humanely, fed, clothed, given some money and then repatriated.

The Government of Libya and any other countries boat people are from should be put on notice to reintegrate these refugees and do right by them or face reprisals.

Turkish President Erdoğan complains of cacophony in US – POLITICS.

Whilst, I struggle to follow President Erdoğan’s logic, I agree with him about conflicting signals coming from Washington. For me, President Obama does not have a robust foreign and military strategies for dealing with Syria and Iraq. On the other hand, I sense increasing distrust between the US and Turkish governments. I wonder if Kissinger would still regard Turkey as a strategic partner?
