Waiting for the Africans now

The German newspaper, Die Welt, tells us that there are already 200,000 Africans pooled in Libya waiting for calmer weather before crossing to Sicily. This is not so large a number as the million or so already on their way — largely overland — from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan but, potentially, the number of migrating Africans out of a population of over 1 billion, could be ten times as many before too long unless the EU do what I suggested over a year ago in this blog — effectively blockade the ports from which their rubber dinghies set out

If there is one thing that characterises the EU more than anything else it is that, with 28 member countries but no Cabinet of four or five which is able to take practical decisions, there is no possibility that the surge from Africa will be stoppable once it starts.
