. humanitarian disaster turned into a political span. france and the u. k. criticize each other for the deaths of dozens trying to cross english channel. but beyond this blame gained, what would it take to stop such a tragedy happening again? this is inside story. ah, hello, welcome to the program hush him abala. britain and france are blaming each other for the deaths of at least $27.00 people in the english channel. 70 man, 7 women,
and 3 teenagers, died on wednesday when that dingey deflated is the worst disaster in the water since the un began collecting data into 1014. the das have worsened relations between the account. france are ready at odds over brag that france cancelled a we can meeting with british officials in protests against a letter made public by premier, the boys johnson. the u. k. government had called on friends to start taking back all my grants, trying to make the crossing, and accused it of rejecting an offer to conduct joint marine patrols. but france authorities say france is only a transit country for many migrants. and they blame british employers for encouraging illegal migration by hiring undocumented people. andrew simmons report from the friends, port, city of calais, rescue boats are on patrol less than 24 hours after the tragedy there. surveillance from above please. so using beach buggies and what passes for normality in cali,
migrants and refugees being escorted to buses, bound for some sort of shelter. no, for our police. and mobilized day and night. not only yesterday or the day before, but they have been from the very start. they are on our external borders. never has france had is many police officers and it timed soldiers involved in a fight against illegal immigration. this is about rougher, long time her factors smashing the criminal dance at cheat human beings as cargo and tap in supply chains. all along this part of the french coastline, more than 50 kilometers of it. there are spots where in secrecy, people smugglers arrange the sudden boarding of small inflatable boats. it's happened before and it's still happening. these images were filmed on the same days . the migrants died. people intent on getting to the u. k. no matter what the risk . it's hard to imagine the level of desperation for these people in braving the
seas to cross the english channel, but they're doing so in their thousands of numbers. a growing this year alone, $25000.00 have made the crossing. that's triple the number of 2021. for many of the people arriving in cali, this is where they are given help. carrots as a charity tries. it's best to persuade people not to make channel crossings warning of the hazards. most of the time they fail. they don't just blame the people smugglers, they blame governments on both sides of the channel. even though after what happened yesterday, people will try again. so it's really tang to change the politics here. it's really, it's really tend to change the situation and to i mean, to open safe and the guy routes to let people and to cover basic needs when people are here and to lead them settling as well. the british and french governments often blame each other for the problem, getting worse. what's the rhetoric dies down though?
there is some hope that wednesday's death could bring a new level of cooperation. what was intended to be a new beginning? was a tragic end for the men, women and children who died in the english channel. how many more may have to die before there's an increase of humanitarian moves to help these people, instead of politically motivated actions on both sides of the english channel. andrew simmons al jazeera kelly at an sir cross, the english channel have increased since last year. nearly 26000 people arrived in the u. k. this year. thus, 3 times more the last year. earlier this month, a record $1185.00 migrants and ravages. beach, the southern shores of the okay. in a single day before the disaster on wednesday, 14 people drowned this year trying to make the journey. last year, southern people died and 2 were never found for debts were reported in 2019.
ah, lettering in our gas from sir my law of france, jack relaunch senior research fellow of the world policy institute from calais, france. maya can 40. that was the general of the college charity la bash de miguel, all from london, sarah overton, researcher of the u. k. in a change in europe. think tang. thank you all for joining us. jack. why has the tragedy of the english channel turned into a blame game? between france and the u. k. is just a continuation of the brain game when prompted the okay. it's been going on for quite a while. i started with different issues about fishing rights for french books. it's stopped in public gordon. no, and i don't. i don't need to pick this week with the terrible drama in the shallow
lap the dish decided to accuse the financial being responsible for that tragedy. and it's for girl and i will on the board. johnson to gauge the against the french, always the idea scape goat where there is program destruction destruct. public opinion from programs is home such as easy shoes made. they are the issues, sequences of breaks in. so it's are used for destruction. there's nothing better when you have to programs at $12.00 to $5.00 and then to be outside the idol idea. as always, is the fridge, which the british had the british press log to criticize it's, we know we are used to it. and it's not the french thing that's not the right
approach to that issue because it's really serious issue of a drama with lives at stake. that one should actually try to focus our brides together to try to find a solution and not throw attacks at each other. like to add yesterday what to said . the french, terribly led to return by boys jones, which was actually published on twitter, which is contrary georgia that you use maya the way the tragedy was characterized and the statements between the 2 nations now of the sun tell the tragedy of france and the u. k. to basically agree on what i to, which is the, put the blame on my grand smugglers and human trafficking of is absolutely no mention of the story of the migrants themselves or the issue of migration itself. how do you see these current characterization? yes, that's definitely the only thing that the british and french governments have in
common is that they like to blame it all on the smugglers. you know, of course, the smugglers are not exactly a friendly people, but, and you know, they tried to make as much money as possible, but they actually respond to a need. and why is there? is there such a need to cry, too for smugglers? it's because the borders are closed, you know, in galle there's miles upon miles or bad barber of farm wise walls, a seal to machines and cameras and so forth. and now a lot of police, but the, the smugglers respond to the need that people in kelly have to cross to the u. k. and they want to go to the u. k for the simple reason that they cannot keep an ass or asylum in france. because most of the time they have the fingerprints taken in other countries,
and therefore they're not allowed to ask for asylum in france. and really, frankly, we have people on the ground and the refugees on the ground. and they tell us, i'm dying little by little, every day i spend in cat a, so i'm and as well take a big risk and maybe die, but at least i will die fast. and hopefully i will make it to the u. k. sarah, the british government is frustrated over what describes as a lack of cooperation from the french government for basically trying to say that the french intentionally, i was just allowing people to cross into the okay, inc. and it's very interesting question. certainly this is an a, an issue that is facing the u. k. and france. i think there have been reports that the individuals migrants who are coming to the u. k are not only coming from france that they're coming from other countries such as belgium and the netherlands. and so i think it's very difficult to draw immediate conclusions and on here is
responsible. i think it's true that this is an issue which is as historical, has been around for many years. and the u. k. and france have had close corporation since and 2003 with the t k agreement and an series of bilateral agreement since then. and there has also been as, as you will be aware, an increased a corporation this year already and in july, so you can, france agreed to incorporate more so i think. and what's, what's needed at the moment is not so much a blame game, but rather looking at the thought, seeing what the situation is and working on a practical solutions. a good outcome, jack, you spoke about the o is work of the french anger, basically about the a letter which a bras, johnson, the british prime minister, posted on twitter, which talks about he outlines key major areas where he says the french have to be
active. the joint patrols the more advanced technology to sir, or surveillance of the coast lines, and also the corporation and the bi lateral returns agreement. which means that if the british government catches people trying to cross into the british shore, they have to be returned back to runs. is this the reason why the french government is pro much frustrated? yes, that is a big sticking part is the id or 3, but are you think the as seekers or getting them back to frogs? you know the different shot for the menu ways. what to do with those items. he goes which arrived on the shores. i think it's about 20000 this year. maybe something either what to do with that this falls about sending them to a baby to, to wanda. look at none of these countries wanted to focus on the suggestion, which is absolutely ridiculous. i think cocked,
send them back to profitable research is no longer part of the u as yet for it w remote, which means that i don't see go should be sent back to the country. they got, 1st in the you doesn't start with the region at any way. we know that was in that case, you would send them back to bonum, because most of them are property, especially in the last few weeks of true on from bit ours. so that's not the possibility as these people don't want to play as many as opposed to be just to do . but those want to go to the u. k. 4, then you get is the doraville. and it's what amazing that you try to find the golden legal with that issue because it's a very small amount of people do you get is really,
it's all stead of the spreadsheet think taking back control and we allow back into borders that we know that was a big issue, but the, you refugees, in your case study about 31000 last year in france, we were at 83000 degrees as does more proportion abbreviation that even do you. so you sort of these people want to go to menu just before links with britain, and therefore what should be, what is the procedure to said to custody date is being pulled out maybe to process the as i don't imagine that it started for those social dubs which was meant to facilitate the entry of mine, those with parents in the you can only about $500.00. this is but
this is exactly the start of the solution. the franchise doug, the efforts the forty's, the 6, there's a 40 mice, of course, long to book to police. dev border 6, officers patrolling, debit increase the group. i mean stuff, that's all that they want. let's go, let's go to maya. maya the, the friends themselves are not coming under mounting international pressure because for what many describe as ambiguous sense when it comes to the migraine, on one hand, to dismantle the refugee camp in 2016 in carly. now this thing that we are going to provide shelter, what do you think should friends do in the near future to try to prevent any future tragedy? well, you know, there's the agreement of the 2 k that need to be revised. is the europe that needs to change a dis dublin regulation?
i must point out to jack that when i like the time of the big jungle in 2016, the french government offered the refugees, were wearing kelly, to be able to ask for asylum in france and to have the doubling regulation or a, an old for then, you know, that was a part of proposition 13 article 13 in the dublin regulation that it can be given like this and several 1000 people. busy were when cali at that time said, well if i'm not going to be dublin, then i'm willing to ask for asylum in france. so many people and kelly some want true, really go to u k. like you say because of a they have family and so forth. but for many, it's the last chance it's not the el dorado, it's their last chance because they cannot ask for asylum in france or in germany
and so on. so if we change the dublin regulation and of course it has to be change everywhere. the european level, otherwise it won't be fair. that will change just definitely things. i think that's very, very important. and there's also, you know, what the french government does is done on this obsession with no point of fixation in kelly. we don't want another jungle. and so the way the refugees are treated and kelly's absolutely horrendous. i mean it's a evictions every other day. they even at back in the sense the association does like ours in the fact that every month they add one of the places where with a bidding to distribute and they make life so miserable that people just want to go . okay? so that's, you know, treating them like that does not work either, sir, or the french government is saying that prime minister both johnson has to take responsibility when it comes to this particular issue. what do you think should the
care you can do in the near future? because you know, the debate now is centered on the need for the u. k. to bring about more of a generous approach when it comes to the asylum seekers through the u. k. yeah, i mean, certainly it's been an issue. it's just been in the u. k. news for some time now in terms of the series. so the introduction of nationality and border spell, which is proven to be a very controversial piece of legislation with various people raising concerns about how it's 2 pronged approach. it opens up much more possibilities or asylum. see is to be deemed inadmissible. and so they're certainly very lively discussion ongoing in the u. k. about how that bill should look around specific causes of it. and so it's very much of an issue which is being worked on across all all parties and in the u. k. has also been interesting research that came out recently from the
refugee council saying that about 98 percent of migrant c cross, the english channel do apply for asylum. so i think in this discussion we also have to be aware of the fact that this is not just the question of migrant crossings. it's also a question of the wider asylum system in the u. k. as you also mentioned, and one of the, one of the things that really should be looked into is the processing time specifications. so in the u. k, there's currently a large backlog of applications. so i think there is, there is a need for and at yeah, for the review of the, the own channel, asylum 1st process processing. and i think the government will argue that they are already doing that with the release of the strategy earlier this year in march. and then this bill which is awesome to parliament, but it's proving to be a very polarizing topic in the u. k. as, as it has been historically,
so i think it's really a case now. all parties across the political spectrum coming together, realizing that this is really an issue of concern not just of managing migrant crossings, but also in issue the monetary in and, and really should. yeah. it should be a situation where joint solutions are being a being built. jack as long as the crisis continues between france and the u. k, you know that the past, the dublin 3 regulation with the legal framework within which the, you and the u. k. were going to discuss issues of migration asylum. that is no longer the case with briggs. it what could bring the e u friends in particular and the u. k. to agree on how to move forward when it comes to migrant? what could bring the british government to de leon a sensible matter with your,
your opinion on that issue? it wouldn't even be a challenge for you can move, you know, people are very concerned about my grounds. made headlines in the paper or the last few weeks. i've got the old jewelry, m, p, 's on stop by the constituents. what are you doing that if the brain is right, but that's not with everyone knows of your british nose is not the solution. so why should discuss ways to see this application? i think the french would be ready for women to even up for this. so she says, all movies of she says to process the septic is shown in britain and in britain because a lot of these people are going to make my groans. they're really asylum school general sort of speakers coming from iraq. soon there were 3
people are actually fred, especially iraq. and as a result of the iraqi will bridge such a key about so there shouldn't be the shelf responsible dad. it's a really big human issue because it's cancer, so she'll be bored. got bed the rest of duration as a child, when brittany showed those kids, the people who are debbie's refugees of his background quality, 5 skills, both with a speaking page with that would be good for the economy. the old part is that it is a political stuff based iraq brice, at the fact that the british wants to show that taken back control, as well as the famous maya, don't to think that europe itself has changed. in the past,
we would portray those migrant people braving the see the mountains dangerous places looking for a better life or fleeing political culture and persecution. that's not the case. that's not the way they are portrayed these days in europe. their widely seen as people who are likely a source of threat danger, instability, and fanaticism to the european come to them that to him and as a itself of the issue of migrants is one of the reasons why we're seeing people dying. i. i think that the, you know, but the responsible people for that is the government, you know, put the politicians know, you know, it's not, it's not a good sellable argument to say we should welcome the refugees. it sells better in terms of the political vote to say, you know, we must get rid of the ugly migrant. and what so crazy is that in fact,
europe is, it is a continent that's aging. you know, most countries are aging. there is nothing of babies being born and the economy that the, the right, the right economy that would bring those refugees that they worked, it, they were allowed to, to stay and work with actually help nearly all of you, all of the european countries. i mean, the economist talk about that the associations talk about that and the governments during a blind eye because all they want is a, you know, they, they are afraid that they're not going to be re elected if they, if they actually talk about that. but that is actual fact. fortunately, we're running out of time. chuck reload my uncle. 40 sarah overton. i really appreciate your insight. thank you very much. thank you for watching. you can see the program again any time by visiting our website al jazeera dot com for further discussion. go to our facebook page. that's facebook dot com, forward slash
