"Wadda ya Expect,...they're French"
The French government wants to demolish the make-shift tents at the Calais 'Jungle' camp and force 2,000 migrants to live in shipping containers that, refugees claim, resemble a detention center.
Around 300 'Jungle' inhabitants recently clashed with riot police, who fired rubber bullets and tear gas to break up the protest against the compulsory move.
The treatment of migrants and refugees by the authorities in Calais is now plastered on a wall opposite the French embassy in London. "Banksy" has made his latest political point.
Steve Jobs by Banksy
It’s not the first time the street artist has used art to highlight the plight of refugees living in the so-called Jungle camp in Calais. First he shipped his Dismaland structures to help build make-shift shelters in camp; he then stenciled a picture of Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple clutching a computer in a bin bag because Jobs was the son of a Syrian refugee.

Speaking of our pals the French. I recall how quickly they caved to the Nazis. Not only that, but collaborated in record time. They even did them Nazi fucks a nice solid by turning over French Jews to them.
Eh, this before they were asked to.
I have mixed feelings about the ungrateful bastards. Ain't won a war in 250 years. They put Mayo, and Vinegar on their fries. They hate our guts because we're cool, and they ain't we're an Empire...tho' in decline, and they ain't.
Heck even after we finally lose our Empire thing we'll still be seriously cool,...and they won't be.
Oh yeah, and them bleeps are shooting at Refugees now.
Well if nothing else they're consistent.
