I think it's vital that a distinction is made between Refugees and Migrants (economic) with Refugees from war-torn countries being given priority. As far as Migrants are concerned then I'm afraid they should go to the back of the queue.

The UK is a small island in comparison to the majority of our European neighbours with the highest head count per hectare - 419.

According to the BBC up to 2,000 migrants based at the Jungle in Calais, try to storm the Channel Tunnel every night. 'IF' say 5% - 10% were to get to UK every night - how would we cope with them?

Just imagine if the Jungle were on our side of the Channel - I wonder how people would feel then?

In Chiswick we are very privileged, with a well integrated multi-cultural community and do not have the task of hosting migrants, what I'm saying is that it's easy to show sympathy and empathy when your remote from a crisis and let the heart rule the head.

From all the news reports it is clear that sending food and clothing to Calais is NOT required and is just creating more problems than it solves - so why do it?

Why not donate to the official Charities who have the resources to store and distribute the goods as and when needed rather than donate to well meaning, albeit misguided, voluntary groups - too many cooks and all that.
